Happy Birthday........

To me!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL! Today is my birthday and I was so excited when I woke up this morning! I don't think I've felt so excited about being another year old for a few years so not quite sure what changed this year! Lol! I have received some lovely cards and presents from my family and friends so here are just a few piccies!



From DH, Jess and Abi.


Yes that is a Build- A- Bear you see and yes I did have to kiss the heart, rub it on my forehead etc etc when she was made!!! Thankfully they were very busy so I didn't have to jump around or spin round like Abi did when she got hers!! Her name is Angel and DH bought me her ( I did ask him if I could have one as he hadn't bought me a birthday present and didn't know what to get me!). Also in the picture is an Eeyore scarf and glove set and body spray from Jess and the Polkadot Mushroom Fairy ( design by Jasmine Beckett- Griffith) ornament from Abi. We had seen these in a shop in York and her and Jess had snuck off so that Abi could buy it!



From Julie and Lisa

I was so excited when I opened my gift from Julie and found this adorable little bunny from her! I have admired Julie's knitted bunnies since she started making them and am so proud to be a Mum to one now. And look at the gorgeous little ornament that I received from Lisa! Isn't it beautiful? Thank you so much Julie and Lisa. {{{{hugs}}}} I love them.

Now my adorable little bunny does not have a name so just for a little fun I'm holding a contest to name her so please get your thinking caps on and suggest some names. Of course she is a December baby and Julie tells me she is the one and only snow white bunny so I think she deserves a special name! I'll get Abi and Jess to pick a name in a few days and the winner will receive something from me in the New Year:)

I also received a book, some hand cream, Thorntons continental chocolates, a cute bear ornament, gloves, hand wash and money so I feel I have been truly spoilt:) My Dad gave me some money to buy what I would like so I ordered some Shepherd's Bush needlerolls from JJ's but, unfortunately, they haven't arrived yet so I'm hoping they will today.

As I said in my last post Chris was supposed to visiting on Wednesday and we were both really looking forward to it but her car wouldn't start so we spent so much of the afternoon chatting on MSN! So we are hoping that she may be able to come today. Finger's crossed we can arrange something before Christmas at least.

Stitchy progress so far this week is just Twisted Oaks Designs Merry Noel Stitching Smalls. I managed to finish the stitching for the chicken and started on the snippets tray so I feel excellant progress has been made! LOL!

I treated myself to Olga's gorgeous Hearts and Snowflakes Biscornu and Icicle Ornaments charts the other day ( a little birthday gift to myself!). If you have not seen Olga's lovely designs pop on over to her blog and have a look. I am hoping to get at least one of these stitched before Christmas but if it doesn't happen I'll have them done next year:)

That's it from me for today. I'm hoping to get some stitching in this evening on my stocking. It's going well and I think it will get finished for Christmas!

Take care everyone.

Hugs

***Happy Birthday***
Well my first thought for a name for your Snow bunny is Angel but with your gorgeous bear being called that(Love the outfit it has on)I was thinking Snowdrop. Super gift from Julie and a lovely Biscornu from Lisa.
Enjoy the rest of your day!!

Glad you had such a lovely Birthday, what great goodies you got. You've also made wonderful progress on Noel. As to the little bunny, I'm so bad at naming things and thinking creatively, I don't have any ideas to add to those that have already been suggested.

Loved the bunny all of my ideas for names have been suggested, the favourite being Snowflake.

Any chance you could tall me where the eyeore gloves and scarf were purchased as the gloves would make a great stocking filler for my daughter?

Kit said...

Happy belated birthday, I hope you had a good one. Everything looks so good.

Barb said...

Hi Sally Loved all your goodies but oh your little bunny is gorgeous what about naming her Julie-White after her creator. Have a lovely christmas you and yours and I have just ordered the Quaker christmas after seeing yours did you do it over 1 or 2.
