Birthday Giveaways and Birthdays!



Its March 27th!  An auspicious day!  Its MY Birthday.  Its not a milestone year... yet.


I had hoped to celebrate with friends this year, something I've not done since I was young.  With this upcoming weekend being Easter, most of my friends already had assorted commitments for the weekend.  Maybe next year!




I did get to do a little celebrating in advance, this past Saturday my friend Amy put together a nice little belated/early Birthday dinner for our friend Marline and I.  As we didn't manage to get together on her birthday and my actual day .
My friend Laurie-Anne and I have come up with an interesting plan to celebrate my birthday tomorrow evening.  I'm hoping there is an opportunity to get a few pictures!  I'd like to share this version of celebrating with you if I can!
A little while ago I won Mouse's Birthday giveaway on her blog!




Her wonderful surprise arrived less than a week away from my own Birthday!  How cool is that?  I know it wasn't planned but it was like getting an early Birthday present.  Espeically when I opened up the envelope and found everything all wrapped up in lovely spring colours (a season that seems to have forgotten us, because winter won't go away).








Michelle stitched this beautiful little pillow for me!!  I just LOVE red!  I like it so much my car is red, I told Todd recently that my car is red, I should DRIVE it like a red car!  LOL.  Not only did Michelle stitch me this beautiful gift but she spoilt me with all these wonderful goodies!  Strawberry ribbon and fabrics for finsihing, beautiful blue hand-dyed lugana, hand dyed threads and blue handled scissors!  See why I said it felt like a birthday present to me?
In the spirit of Michelle/Mouse's birthday giveaway and my very important day I am also having a giveaway! You have one week, until April 3rd to enter by leaving me a comment!
