About Me

My photo
I started stitching a few years ago thanks to a very dear friend. She has encouraged and taught me so much. I am the Mum of three great kids who I love dearly. I love to stitch in my spare time and even though I am a newbie I enjoy it very much.

Whilst in the Blue Mountains I happen to celebrate a birthday. Unfortunately it was one of those with a  big "0" on the end. I am the sort of person who hates birthdays and definately hates being in the lime light. So I was very embarrassed to be so very spoilt by so many people on this occasion. Thankyou so much to you all I am sure you know who you are. It was a very special birthday and I enjoyed it very much.

Here are some pictures of the gorgeous gifts I recieved.

Some absolutely gorgeous fabrics and patterns for me to stitch.

A beautifully handstitched journal.

These are scissors I was given and engraved on them is.....

When life throws you scraps.....

make a quilt!

I also received jewellery, flowers, chocolates, perfume & handbags. What more could a girl ask for.


Happy stitching xox
