Thank You Michele!

Some of you may remember that a few weeks ago I won Michele's blogoversary contest. Well yesterday I had a package to pick up from the PO and look what was inside:) The gorgeous Shepherd's Bush Believe ornament/ wall hanging, some lovely NN thread, some cording, some chocolate and it was all packed in the snowman tin:) Wow, Michele certainly spoiled with this prize. I am not going to want to put Believe away when the Christmas decorations get put away so this may well stay out all year:) Thank you so much Michele, I love it all! Here is a better picture of Believe.

Thank you all for your birthday wishes and thank you to those of you who sent cards too:) I had a lovely day, although I did feel a bit down towards the middle of the day but I was soon lifted up again by my lovely DH and my two lovely DDs. I had gone and bought myself a cake as I didn't think anyone would bother to get me one then Jess came in from school and had bought me one! The funniest thing was she had bought the same one as I had!! So I now have two cakes:) My DH came in with these gorgeous flowers for me

Abi made chicken curry with rice for tea ( which was delicious) then she disppeared back into the kitchen with instructions for me to stay put in the dining room. A while after she shouted to Jess to turn the light off and in she walked with my cake with 10 lit candles on it. They then sang Happy Birthday to me by which time I was in tears:) They really spoilt me and I am just so proud to have two wonderful daughters who make me feel so special and so loved:)

I have been busy stitching on HAED QS Girly Gothic since Wednesday evening. I want to get lots done but it's not really happening! I want to start QS Holly Fairy which I was gifted with for my birthday but I really can't until I finish GG and I haven't even finished the first page of 4 yet! Lol! It'll happen one day I hope; God willing:)

Thank you all for reading my blog and for all your lovely comments. I have been so blessed at "meeting" you all in blogland and I love you visiting and love visit your blogs too {{{{hugs}}}}
