Spoilt old me – birthday blessings!!

Wow, I have to say I have been right royally spoilt rotten by fellow bloggers … my mail box had a lovely gift in it from Carol for my birthday – a Tacky Bob, which I was about to buy for myself in a couple of weeks from Stitching Bits & Bobs with my birthday money – I reckon this is one of the most useful stitching tools I’ve come across for those of us who use beads … just awesome – can’t wait to use it! And that’s not all – Carol also sent me a chart called “Be Kind to Birds” by Sunflower Samplings, as it reminded her of me with my fascination of the local birdlife (the feathered kind!) … thank you, Carol, from the bottom of my heart – you’re very thoughtful, and generous! :)) (I’m now rushing off to check my supply of GAST threads for it LOL).

And seeing as I opened Carol’s gift, the curiosity got the better of me today too – I finally opened Sharon‘s birthday gift for me … I’ve been smelling it for the last two days, as Mum had put in my room while our Canadian visitors used the spare bedroom, and was determined not to open it until my actual birthday … but … I weakened and succumbed πŸ™‚ Thank you so much Sharon for the most wonderful smelling soap – I’m not sure if you realised it, but Frangipani is one of my most favourite flowers in the whole world! Thank you so much, too, for your generous gift – you’re a real sweetheart :))) And you have to congratulate Erin on that gorgeous artwork!! (yup, I did notice that little copyright name!)

Wow, I feel truly blessed – stitching bloggers really do make the best of friends! :))

Well, my visits are almost all over, and life will be returning to ‘normality’ again in a few days (Mum goes home on Saturday). As much as I’ve adored having everyone visiting, it will be nice to get back to my routines again. And I’m putting my only resolution to the test this month, hoping to get to some of the Guild F2F meetings – I don’t know what roster I’ll be following next month, so I can’t plan that far ahead yet.

  1. Lovely gifts – enjoy them, you deserve them πŸ™‚

    I know what you mean about “normality” … it’s always nice to get back to it for a while.

  2. My pleasure AnneS… LOL because i couldn’t smell properly on the day I bought that – M (eldest daughter) who recommended the shop – did most of the smelling… But that one I could smell a little and thought it was lovely so I chose that one for you… I am glad you like it… The card is one of a range which E has drawn she hopes to market them shortly…
