Birthday Gifts

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!

Such wonderful friends:) I love the SB Fob. Thanks for the heads- up on the 2009 fob. I had their site bookmarked, but better put it on my reader so I don't miss the introduction!

I just love stitching get-togethers. There's nothing more relaxing than talking about stitching while you are stitching.

Your birthday gifts are wonderful.

Cathy you got some great friends. And they gave you some really nice gifts too. It really feels great to get cool gifts.

I got some birthday gift baskets from edible arrangements sent to me by some friends. And these gift baskets really made my day.
