Still more Birthday pressies.....

 I've joined in Mrs. Martin's Celebrate swap and my partner Leanne when sending me my Easter swap item also sent me this gorgeous pouch with all these goodies inside,I have been spoilt rotten by Leanne :) Thanks Leanne I've loved everything you've sent me and can't wait for the next part of the swap to start :)
 I have a very special bloggy friend called Ondrea and this is what she made for me for my Birthday.....can you tell she knows I love red and white together lol. Thanks Ondrea I LoVe it!!  I've already found a special place for it in my sewing room :) I'll do another post soon and show you what I made for Ondrea's birthday which was the day after mine.....
 This beautiful pincushion, fabric, ribbon and wooden hearts were sent to me by Melody who I've spent some lovely days at Mill Rose in Ballan stitching and chatting, thanks Melody my beautiful pincushion has been added to my collection in my huge wooden bowl sitting on my sewing table for me to admire before I put it to good use in the future :)
 This gorgeous kit was sent to me by Maureen,I love the fabric range and the pattern is soooo pretty I can't wait to be able to get some me time and start working on it.Thanks Maureen it certainly brightened my week :)
 These pretty purple fat 1/4's and matching threads were sent by Janet, I'm  feeling very spoiled at the moment, thanks Janet these will be added to my stash to use for future projects :)
This lovely lot of yumminess was sent by Narelle, I must admit the chocolate sachet is now long gone and very enjoyable it was too lol.....the little birdy magnets are on my freezer looking very pretty and the fabric, buttons, thread and ric rac have been added to my stash which is growing bigger by the day! Thanks Narelle You've made my birthday linger just that little bit longer this year :)
I also received more gifts etc... this evening but it was too late to take pic's so I'll wait till Friday and do another big post of gorgeous Birthday goodness then :)
 This past weekend I've been reading and trying out a few new crochet block patterns from this new book I received in the mail last week....
This block is called "let it snow" I love how adding the red border makes the snowflake stand out more vibrantly. I also have a couple of more blocks I'll be trying out over the next week or so, I've enjoyed working on something new, the block looks difficult but works up quite quickly :)
