Some Birthday Goodness

Last Saturday I celebrated another birthday and some of the wonderful gifts I was given included some crafty ones.
From my friend Shelley at work, she gave me these neat scissors. I'd been eyeing up these recently at the local quilting shop, aren't they cool. She also included some fabric, which might come in handy this week for my Easter stitching finishing, and a pack of garden themed charms.
From Kath, she totally spoilt me as always -

To hold my scissors, this chookie made out of the most gorgeous fabric, which Kath knew I would love!
and this lovely mug mat, once again, just perfect to my tastes.


I told you she thoroughly spoilt me, Kath also gave me this Little House Needleworks kit that I loved ever since it came out.



I'm going to start on this during the Easter break next weekend.



Its been a pretty quiet weekend at our house this weekend - we did get a visit from my BIL, SIL, and little niece Alice this afternoon which was great to catch up with them. My SIL is due to have her baby in two weeks so we're all very excited about it. I'd better get on with the blanket I'm crocheting for the baby, I'm on my third attempt at it, the first and second time I wasn't happy with the tension but now its back underway.



Nearly dinnertime here so I'd better get going, I'll be back soon with a stitchey update.

I love the chook - anything with chickens in it and it's a winner with me.
