Hello my friends,
last month I had my 60th birthday.
With lunch with a Katrina,Kath and  eldest 
daughter Celeste.
Then dinner out with hubby,Celeste and my Mum.
A lovely day out.

We forgot to take the camera that night!
Our son gave me a voucher for Spotlight.
Not used yet !

Youngest daughter gave me this cute cat tea towel.
Too nice to dry dishes with. 
Have some thoughts for this.

Celeste gave me this pad plus  a framed 
`My Mother` saying.
Forgot to take photo. 

Katrina gave me this piece of fabric with LHN pattern 
`Summer Splendor`
I have the brought the threads only the linen to cut
ready to stitch.
She was still knitting my sox`s so came later .
Tomorrow  I learn how to do the heel on mine.:)

Kath made this lovely zipper bag and 
also gave me Stoney Creek patterns.
I have this kitted ready to go as well.

Hubby gave me this ornament to add to my collection.
by Willow Tree.

My sister who lives down south gave me these 
French General fabrics .
I  have a pattern for a sewing kit to use them.
There was also the Antique thread and ribbon cards. 

My Pen Pal of 50 years sent me 
Lori Holts Scrappy Project Planner .
Hubby and I are going for a visit later in the year .
Looking forward to catching up in person. :)
I have also stitched the next 
Country Blues Block.
Gave my cat some whiskers.

Well time to finish this lovely chat so,
Happy Stitching,
