My Birthday goodies
Hello me again!
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my recent posts. I'm hoping to get round as many blogs as I can over the coming weeks.
So I celebrated my birthday last week and received some lovely presents from friends.
I had a boxful of wonder from Steph.
So in the box was a set of pegs with days of the week on, some Christmas fabric and a huge bag of variegated threads.
Steph sent me one of the finished pieces from when she stitched a travelling pattern recently. We're going to hang it in our bedroom.
Steph made me an amazing needle book. Here you can see the front and back of it.
Steph also made me two gorgeous brooches. I've worn the larger one already.
Lastly Steph made me this gorgeous shall. The colours are very me and I wore it to work on Friday as it goes with my favourite jumper very well!
So all of those wonderful goodies were from Steph.
I also had lots of giraffe goodness from Laura who has been squirrelling away giraffe themed goodies all year!
The gorgeous granny square bag contained giraffe print and a second piece with African animals on it. There were some gorgeous buttons and a fab wooden ruler which I absolutely love! There was a pretty embroidered giraffe too. Here's a bit of a close up.
I had a lovely scarf from my best friend and some crochet hooks from hubby.
I also had lots of chocolate, yellow roses and a cosy onesie.
I'll be back later in the week with a bit of a bits and bobs kinda post. Have a good week :-)
