Updates & Gifts!

I have been busy with work and some health issues the past couple of weeks, alas me not posting for over two weeks!

I have been working on Sugilite.

My birthday is next Friday and this past Sunday some of the stitching gals met for lunch and shopping at The Stitching Post.  Jill brought me birthday gifts!  Not all is pictured, but she gave me bobbins, a magnetic ladybug notepad, a set of pretty post-its, some DMC, and my three favorite ones:

Mill Hill's Buttons & Beads Vanilla Cupcake kit, which, of course, I have already started!!!


And she made me this ornament of the May cake from Brooke's Books Publishing.  LOVE IT!


And all of these wonderful items came in this awesome storage book.  The lid is magnetic.

Thanks, Jill!
