Today is my birthday and I have been truly blessed. I woke up to an embarrassment of cards and presents - such as this beautiful brooch from Wendy (plus a candle, candle holder and book),
a lovely sewing bag from my cousin Jo,
and some gorgeous fabric from Sewingbuddy.
I even had a facebook Happy Birthday message from Gail Pan - one of my favourite designers.
But the fun continued - on the way to the hairdressers (thank you Jean for the lift) Jean gave me this lovely heart, notebook and coffee mug. (doesn't the notebook remind you of someone?).
Being my birthday - there were a few self bought presents - such as this Scan and Cut machine that I had had my eye on and bought when it was too good a deal to leave.
I also treated myself to this lovely wooden duck that is just too tactile for its own good!
All that is now left to do is to find new homes for the "toys" - and then get ready for tonight's WI BBQ. It's raining at the moment but let's hope that it clears away. How kind of them to organise a BBQ for my birthday party!!
