Special Friends, Special Gifts

Tomorrow, I'll celebrate my birthday and I've received some lovely gifts from some special friends that I've made through my blog. Though I've not met these ladies in person, they are friends who have made my life a richer and happier one.

The first gift that I'll share with you is from Julie in England. If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting Julie's blog, I highly recommend it! Julie has a great sense of humor and is a very talented stitcher and finisher. She made me this lovely mattress pincushion.



The next gift that graced my mailbox was sent by the sweet Mylene.   Her package for me included a mattress pincushion with a design from Primitive Betty's.    Her finishing on this little piece is so perfect!   She also included some delicious chocolate bars, a bookmark that showcases her area of the Netherlands, and a very cute magnet of a sheep.


I have a couple of gifts that arrived yesterday that I'm saving until tomorrow. I'll share them with you in my next post.

Thank you so much for visiting me. I hope you enjoy the Memorial Day weekend.

Happy birthday. I love the little cushions. The PS is so great. I just love the "farm" theme.

PB's freebie works up so nice. It's beautiful.

Congrats!
