Finishing, Framing and Birthday Fun !

Morning Bloggers !

I think you may pour out a cuppa and pull up a chair this is going to be a long one šŸ™‚

Where to begin…ah yes where I finished last week

I had started The Sampler Girls piece called My Everything.
Well its finished and awaiting a frame and all in lots of time for our anniversary. Our anniversary is May 6th when we’ll be 12 years married šŸ™‚
This was stitched on 28ct Dark Red Jobelan and I used Belle Soie Icing Sugar.

 After this I started the Hogwarts Crest for its 10 hour rotation which is now finished.

I’m now moving onto Caoimhe’s horse picture.

I’ve also got some framing done.

Remember the Hunting picture for my hubby. Well here it is all framed ready for his birthday.

I also got Mr Darcy’s Letter framed and ready for the wall.

On Saturday it was my birthday and I got some gorgeous and thoughtful gifts from my family and friends.
I wanted sock yarn so hubby and my mum and aunt gave me vouchers for that, I’m still picking out what I want lol.
With my birthday being so close to Easter the children wanted to get me some chocolate eggs, this I enjoy as my birthday falls on Easter only rarely, the last time was my 18th which was Easter Sunday then and I got eggs as part of my gifts then to lol.

I might add I also got some more after these and some chocolates as well so I now have a nice supply of chocolate to keep me going lol. Hubby and the children also got me some lovely pink roses.

My friend Lucie from Lucie’s Stitching Journey sent me this wonderful parcel of Sampler Girl goodies and threads and some magic 25ct for some HAED’s šŸ™‚

My friend Tricia from Tricia’s Craft Box sent me the cutest cushion and some lovely yarn.

My friend Vickie from A Stitcher’s Story sent me this lovely gift.

Now what a lovely selection of gifts I think you’ll agree, thank you ever so much you touched my heart with your kindness. šŸ™‚

And what would a birthday be without cake !.
I went with a Spring/Easter themed one in pastel colours. Me I fancied a plain fresh cream and jam sponge decorated simply. Now this is my style really tasty but simple and classic šŸ™‚

There I leave you, the children have this week off for Easter holidays and with the dreadful  spring cleaning out of the way I can enjoy the rest of this week. šŸ™‚

Happy Stitching,

    What wonderful gifts! Funny little cushion Tricia, that's good. šŸ™‚ Wow Ruth! What a lovely cake, so pretty. I am glad to see the pinkeep arrived in one piece, uncrushed. I thought it very appropriate, since we did meet through a stitching group.
