It's My Birthday!!!

I woke up to a cold rainy day, but my spirits were brightened by all the wonderful gifts I received from the ILCS Birthday Club and CSE Birthday Floss Club.

First all the wonderful cards:






Even Celeste got a belated birthday card (her birthday was in Oct). It is the cutest thing!




From the CSE Birthday Floss Club:

Look at all those *beautiful* flosses!


I was really spoiled by the ladies in the ILCS Birthday Club.

From Shelley: A beautifully stitched and finished tea wall hanging that says "With enough tea, I can survive anything". I'm thinking I will hang it in my craft/spare bedroom. She sent me two boxes of my favorite jelly beans -- Jelly Bellys! Also in the package was a Cross Stitch Forever emery board, a Quarter Flat of fabric, and the Enchanting Geisha kit. Shelley even wrapped everything in pretty paper. Thank you so much, Shelley. Everything was awesome!

From Rhonda: Two asian charts from Pinn Stitch -- Chinese God of Wealth and Japanese Beauties (this one was on my wish list), and a package of size 26 petite needles (my favorite!). Thank you, Rhonda!

From Ethel: Another chart from my wishlist, Traveling Stitcher by Little House Needleworks. She also sent a beautiful piece of fabric from Silkweavers called Shimmering Romance. It's gorgeous! Thank you, Ethel.

From Debra H: Stitcher Favorite Biscornu kit by Sweetheart Tree, one of my favorite designers. Thank you so much, Debra.

I also received gift certificates from Kelly, Kim in Oz, Nancy, Debbie Jo, and Melinda. What a shopping spree I will have!! Thank you, ladies .

It was disappointing that two people in the ILCS club didn't send packages like they were supposed to. Of course, these are ones whose birthdays have already passed and they received their gifts.

Courtney sent me a RAK so I saved it for my birthday. She sent lots of wonterful goodies. Thank you, Courtney!
