My birthday was in November after Thanksgiving, but it gets so hectic between Thanksgiving and Christmas that our little group of stitching friends did not see each other until last Friday night. Jill and Joan surprised me with birthday presents!
Joan made one of her famous project bags for me. I love this fabric, it has a stitchy theme to it. She also gave me a really cool wagon/basket which will be great for displaying needlework smalls. I apologize, I didn't get a picture taken of the wagon!
Jill stitched a scissor fob for me -- the 2007 Shepherd's Bush fob. Here it is pictured with the Julia Gingher (I think!) Jill noticed that the pattern/kit was on my wishlist and stitched it up for me. I love it! Thanks Jill!
I really enjoy stitching with this group of friends on Friday nights and am grateful to Joan for inviting me to join in the fun.
Speaking of Shepherd's Bush fobs, the updated post on their blog today indicates that their 2009 fob will be available soon -- I'm not sure which scissors it will be paired up with though, perhaps Roberta? The 2008 fob was designed to go with Bianca.
That's it for today....have a great week!
