How Nice to have some Online Stitching Friends!!

Today I was very excited to receive a lovely birthday gift from one of our "online" stitching ladies - the lovely Christine.

Every time one of the group has a birthday one person is selected to make for just one person.

The theme for this year was"  Cook.   Eat,   Grow

I was delighted with these gifts, and tastefully done in some Japanese Fabrics  as she knows I am very partial to Japanese fabrics.

How cute are these oven mitts!!!

Perfect to use with my new bakeware I received today too from family.
Just Love the Kitchen!!!!

Oh... and some other lovely things received today at home  from family/friends:

and a gorgeous hand knitted Angora scarf and uh Blue Illusion voucher (lucky me)
all wrapped beautifully  in a "Japanese" themed bag.  Who would know I love the world of Kokeshi's and Japanese things  these gifts were from a special friend -

and lastly.... to finish off the day beautifully a lady whom I first worked in when I started in travel back in 1980!!!!  She just happened to be passing through today and we caught up for lunch.
I am feeling old seeing I have know her for so many years and not seen her for many years.

Have had a great day all round
hearing from family/friends .
thank you everyone to make having another birthday not seeming too painful.
