Saturday 21 st June 2014..... My Birthday ....

Hello friends...

Yes today its my Birthday... we have a tradition in our family to stay up until just after midnight to welcome the Birthday.  And this year my lovely husband (Jon) and Han bought me wonderful gifts...

As you know Han has already given me her surprise... 
Tickets to go and see James Blunt!!

Jon is so naughty...
Look at the wonderful things he bought me... not to mention all those amazing books I have already received..
A marvelous redwork book.

A Q Snap (R&R) frame that lets me sew quicker by not holding a hoop, I can put it on my lap whilst sitting in my comfy stitching chair...

And the most amazing present yet... something I have wanted for years and what left me speechless!!
A Radley handbag!!!


Its just perfect, pretty colors, a happy bag!  I am still speechless and cannot /thank my husband enough for spoiling me like this. 

I LOVE TO JON :) xxx

Thank You to all those who have wished me Happy Birthday already, that is very kind of you ... Thank You xx

I also received Happy post too....

From Peg from a recent giveaway she was having and I was lucky enough to be chosen :)

How wonderful are these gifts!  I just love them both, Thank You ever so much Peg :) And its come such a long way too... all the way from Australia.  Wonderful indeed.

I also participated in this...

I cannot show you too much as its another secret! Sssshhh OK a little bit...

Thats ok I think.... so yes been busy stitching but you will have to wait to see it! :)

My parents will be popping round later so may post an up dater later... 

I just looked on Google... eeeek!!
I hovered my mouse over the google cakes and it says... Happy Birthday Jacquie!!  How wonderful is that!!!
Thank You google!

Smiles, yes I am smiling :)

    I'm a Radley fan too..... that little doggy is just so cute. I have a radley bag my brother bought me for my 50th last year - enjoy using yours.
    Pretty little new project, looking forward to seeing what you are creating.
    Have fun 'faster' stitching with the lap frame, you'll wonder how you managed without one before.


How wonderful that you have popped in to visit me.
Thank You so much for taking time to leave a comment.
