Gifty and gorgeous things.

Tonight's the night - for the May "Friday Night with Friends".
You can go visit Cheryll to link up and join in.  It will be a lot of stitchy fun.  Thank you Cheryll.

So many beautiful things have come to stay with me lately, and I am a bit late posting about some of them.  I have birthday gifts, just because gifts, and yummy purchases.

I was very surprised and thrilled to receive this thoughtful little parcel from Joy.

    

 A beautiful birthday gift from Teresa.  Love the tag on the front with its little bling.
 and gorgeous gifts inside - beautiful crochet flowers and ric rac, which of course are in the colours I use a lot.  It was such a special gift.
 One of my daughters gave me this beautiful bird mug, and little bird affirmation cards (to the right of the mug, but too shiny to photograph well.)

 Today's affirmation message is


Life's truest happiness is found in friendships we make along the way.


Another birthday gift, the pink fabric on the left, and some fabrics I bought for next sewing club.  The one on the right is laminated fabric.  
  

 Today we visited Faeries in My Garden and came home with this lovely kit, Sophie's Sewing Set.
  
The bottom piece is a beautiful panel, and we cut  the motifs to use in each of the 13 items in the pattern.  They have almost sold out of this colourway and will be changing to the same panel but with a dusty pink background.  We preferred this colourway so were very pleased to be able to purchase it.

Yesterday was Cross Country day for Kai and Charlie.
 Great run, Kai.  nearly at the finish line.

 And here's Charlie pacing it out on the right in the top photo, and in the middle of the bottom photo.
You ran very well boys.
