Another year older

Another year of my life has flown by, there's been a few changes a new position at work, my son started High School, my husband changed jobs. All of these things have aged me a little more than I needed, I have a few more grey hairs to show for it. All in all it's been a good year though. My life has been blessed by lots of beautiful friends, I cherish every single one.

I received some lovely pressies, Fee spoilt me with a beautiful package of heart and flower yo-yo makers, a sweet handmade butterly fob and scissors, writing set, cutest little BiBi all wrapped in pretty fabric.
Sarah left a package at my front door, a lovely surprise to come home to. Inside was this book, full of lots of wonderful projects to make.
Thank-you Fee and Sarah, you made my day!

I've also received some beautiful fabrics in a FQ Birthday swap but I'll wait until they're all in before I post a pic. Thank-you to Jeni, Jan and Kate!! (PS I hope you're enjoying Paris Jan!!)

Also in the mail this week was this cutie who I just had to have in my dolly family
she's by Cath, isn't she just the sweetest.

I'm currently stitching away on a secret squrrel project so all other stitching is on hold apart from a swap that I have to squeeze in but I'm almost finished those things. Gardener's Journal is on hold but I'm still keeping an eye on the stitch-a-long and how much work I'm going to have to do to catch up!
Keep up the good work Stitchers!

ah, well, you don't want me to sing, even if it's only written ;o).
Jo, I hope you've had the most wonderful birthday ever!
The pressies you've got are great - maybe you want to give a little review of the 'mini quilt' book, I'd love to hear some details.
Big, big birthday hugs,
