FNWF Results and a late birthday thank you!

DSCF7632

Friday night saw me start stitching around my red and white Dresden plate in blanket stitch but I had to give up by 8.30 as I felt quite ill and went to bed only to be woken up feeling the desperate urge to be sick which I did continually many times over till I finally fell back into bed for the last time at 5.30 Saturday morning to find oblivion in sleep……… so not much progress to report on my Friday night stitching but very happy to report that today I feel sooooo much better and the promise to myself never to eat Chinese takeaway for lunch when out and about shopping EVER AGAIN!! Lesson well learned!

Now onto more pleasant things and an apology to my dear friend Ondrea who I’ve just realised I never publically thanked for my gorgeous birthday gift in my preparation for Tassie ect…. I did email her when my gift arrived but forgot to add it to my birthday posts so here is my beautiful gift  below from Ondrea…..

A beautiful heart hexie, hat pincushion and paper napkins all in my favourite colour combination of red and white . Thank you Ondrea even now just looking at this picture brings a smile to my face Smile

I was also given this beautiful bunch of flowers from one of the mum’s at my centre this week whose child I look after, such a totally unexpected surprise I have been totally spoilt this year for my birthday and I want to thank each and everyone of you for making it so special Smile

Now to go and so some blog hopping after I get back from shopping later today and see what everyone else has been up to.

So sorry to read you were unwell. And the worst part is that it happened on your weekend. That is not fair!
Lovely work on the dresden - they become a little addictive!
