Last Day of Feb

Hello my friends. 
Thank you for your visit. Love having you here.

I joined `Let`s Celebrate Swap` with Mrs Martin  this year. 
Birthdays are celebrated and mine is this month. 
My swap partner Maria -life on the block is my partner. 
It will be lovely getting to know her this year.
Maria sent this lovely parcel for me.

Beautifully wrapped in this lovely fat 1/4.
A lovely card with stitchery pattern and fabric to stitch it on.
Thank you Maria.
 I have a few ideas on what I`d like to make my fat 1/4 into.

February is my birthday month.
Family and friends helped me celebrate this with gifts,cards,phone calls and texts.

I`ve taken this photo of some of my gifts.
I  have received more taking photo. 
I will show my gifts at another post as it`s quite late now.

I was stitching so nicely and my needle roll was nearing finishing.
Then a little frog came for a visit and reverse stitching was needed before I 
could carry on :(
So close to my dead line.
Once frog went away I moved further on.
I`m thinking of using fabric from my `Thimbleberries` collection to make this up.

Thank you for your visit.
I`m of to stitch some more before I head to my bed.
Happy Stitching,
