21 Again

Today I celebrated a birthday. I had a lovely day - a sleep in, breakfast in bed, morning tea on the verandah with my Mum and Dad and then this afternoon some stitching.

As part of my online stitching group everyone is given a partner to make for their birthday. This year we are to make something starting with the letter of the town where we live. My partner Helen lives at Jimboomba. This afternoon my parcel arrived in the mail which was very exciting.

Inside the parcel was this lovely box

Filled with all these goodies starting with the letter J
Jewellery wrap
Jelly Beans
Jewellery kit
Japanese fabric
Jasmine Candle
Jingle Bells

Thank you Helen - all my gifts are gorgeous.

I also received these fabulous bowls and platter from my brothers family. Aren't they just the cutest

I have been flat out over the last few weeks with my new business and BAS time so there has not been a lot of stitching going on. I have been working on some secret santa stitching but also managed to get this little stitchery finished off at cricket on Saturday morning. The stitchery is from Rosalie Quinlan's Little Patchwork Village and I have used French General fabrics. It will eventually be turned into a cushion (hopefully by xmas).

Chat soon
