I have some great friends!!

I got some belated birthday gifts in the mail and yesterday! I went stitching at Martha's yesterday and had a blast! The food was so good. Martha did a potato bar and everyone brought toppings. It was wonderful! Deb was there again and she brought her daughter Jessica who is such a sweetie!

Deb was so kind and brought me a birthday present...

I love it all - thank you again Deb!! :)

Here are a couple more pictures from the get together...

We were all excited to have Susan Greening Davis stitch with us! What a treat! She's such a fun lady, I'm looking forward to my class this weekend!

I also received two gifts in the mail today. One was from my very sweet friend Vonna...

A very pretty kit by Cedar Hill. Aren't the colors gorgeous?? I love it so much, thank you again Vonna!!

I also received an order from Mary Kathryn today (a birthday present to myself). I ordered some very luscious Belle Soie silks for a couple of projects.

In the package she included a little something extra for my birthday. That was so sweet of her!!

Thank you again to everyone! This has been one of my best birthdays that I've had in a long time! I appreciate all my stitching friends so much! You mean the world to me! :)

P.S. My sheep now has a head!! :)
