Gifts From Friends, An Aunt and Gift for my Aunt

Today is my 44th birthday. Wow how did that happen! LOLOL

I have some lovely gifts from some very dear friends share with you:

First up from Staci: She sent me some pima cotton and silk spa cloths and some wonderful smelling lemongrass soap, plus some teas, chocolate and hot cocoa. Thanks so much Staci. I used one of the spa cloths and the lemongrass soap this it!

Next a gift from my sweet friend Pam. She and I recently reconnected and she sent me a lovely pattern book by Little and Little called The Counting Book. A really neat quaker pattern and a zipper pouch that will be put to some great use. Thanks so much Pam. I love my package.

I also received a lovely package from Margaret. I met Margaret through Pam and she is so sweet as well. She loves Mary Engelbreit like I I received some Mary Engelbreit things, some hot cocoa by Tastefully Simple that is delicious! Plus a candle and other goodies. Thanks very much Margaret for a lovely gift.

Over the past year my Aunt Kathy and I got reacquainted after 30 years..she is part of my dad's family and it was really great to get back in touch with her. She had given me a Willow Tree figurine called "Care and Prayer" at Christmas time. I had always loved these when I have seen them in various stores but never had one until my Aunt Kathy got me one. I was so touched that she got me one. So, yesterday I went up to see her, she only lives 15 minutes away and she is a golfer so...I had just the perfect pattern to stitch picked out for her...Lizzie Kate Summer Crazy pattern that had a small pattern in it called "Gone Golfing" as she LOVES her golf! I told her in a card I wrote to her that it fit her to a "t". She got a kick out of that. I am so glad you like it Aunt was a joy to stitch something for you :) I also made her a magnet for her refrigerator because I know she also loves her coffee. So...she was one happy of course, I was happy as well :)

I want to say thanks so much to all my friends that have e-mailed me and sent lovely gifts for my birthday. I truly feel very blessed to have some of the best gal pals a girl could ask for.

For my birthday, Rex and I will go this weekend out to dinner and a movie. I have been wanting to see "How Do You Know". We both love Reese Witherspoon and it looks like it might be a good one.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching to you.

Wendy Jo
