Birthday Weekend

This was made for me by AnnP and yes it did make me smile when I opened it.
My little grandson loves to be with us on our birthday to help us open cards and pressies (lol just nosey like his Gran) and as he was unable to be with us today I decided I would be like the Queen and have two birthdays, so yesterday Oscar helped me with my birthday things and we had a family party, and then today was going to be just Keith and I having a relaxing time on our own, which it was apart from some friends dropping by this morning with cards and flowers.
We had a lovely time yesterday and my day was made even more special as I won the Bingo at Jaynes Attic, Stitch and Stash forum. I had some lovely stash and quite a bit of money for spending on stash - I have been browsing the web mentally making my shopping list and changing it oh so many times lol. Here is a picture of my stash haul with the exception of this little needle minder (also from AnnP) which I had put onto my stitching and so forgot to include it in the picture I took of my stash. Its not very clear but it has a flower and a butterfly on it and is really pretty.
Thanks to Sally, Shiela, Outi, Clare and Tracey for the lovely cards and threads and thanks to Aunty(AnnT), Annie(AnnP), Sho & Karan for my stash haul. Also a special thanks for Terri; I didnt get anything from Terri yet as the postman has gone walk about with her parcel :o( but the thought was there Terri and thats what counts.
