Gifts and Ornaments

Saturday is my 34th Birthday, but last weekend at the Knowledge and Needles Retreat I received my first birthday gifts from my friends!


From Beatrice, a lovely stitched cushion for my smalls basket

From Rebbecca this gorgeous bag, I love bags!


From Bonnie (aka : highlighter pimp) new highlighters, and lookie they're Sharpies!
From Fran, my very own personalized sweatshirt with the Knowledge and Needles logo on it (and my name)
Tonight I started and finished my March ornament, it was a super quick stitch and it was nice to pick up needle and thread for the first time since Sunday (I've been mindlessly blog hopping all week).
