Another Birthday....

I had another birthday this past week and I received some nice gifts from my stitching buds. It's been kind of nice because my birthday was last Monday and I started receiving gifts about a week before that and a few days after. Now my family and friends say my birthday goes on for at least a month---I guess that's true!!

Wendy Jo sent me this card and scissor sock. I even have a new scissor to put in it.
Thank you Wendy Jo for remembering my birthday.

Then Jackie--one of my Friday night stitching buds gave me this. I had gotten one of these coasters for our retreat last August and I whined enough and she stitched up the other three:) Plus she gave me a new scissors and a magnet minder.
Thank you Jackie.

This wonderful shrug came from Jill. I just LOVE it. Jill knitted it for me in my favorite color--green. I really like shrugs for whatever reason and this one is very cute. So I went out and bought a new shirt for it!!!!
Thanks so much Jill.

This little beauty came from Cathy B. She is so good to me. She buys me the new Shepherds Bush scissor fob every year. At least for the last three:) Now I just need to get it stitched. I probably have last years to do to.
Thanks Cathy.

I spent my birthday afternoon with Lori another stitching bud and we had lunch at Chili's--one of my favorite places to eat, then we went clothes shopping. She also gave me some Sampler Threads and a gift card for a massage, can't wait to do that another favorite.

Two of my daughter's gave me a great digital frame. Which I have been wanting. That thing does everything. It has a clock, alarm, video, plays music and even has recipes on it!!! Got to love modern technology.

Plus my DIL and son had a family dinner for me last Sunday night. It was a very nice evening with my family.

So as you can see I had a great birthday week. I am a very lucky girl!!!!

I have a few more things I need to blog about but I will do that in a couple of days. I need to catch up with the stitching I have been doing for the last few weeks.

Thanks for visiting and have a great week.
Happy Stitching:)
