Woo Hoo for Birthdays and Christmas

That's all I can say....Woo Hoo!!!

Yesterday was my 54th and boy oh boy, did I get treated royally. From breakfast with gifts in work, to dinner and gifts from the family last night....I felt like a queen!!!
So, in between breakfast and dinner I got a little packie from Robin....now, you know I love packages, and when they come from a quilting sister I just gotta smile, and blog.... Robin made "Peanut the Elephant" from a cute 30's print with his saddle being made of yo yo's...she also made me that beautiful purple scarf in the front as well as the pincushion on the left, sent a roll of TB thread, a book on how to knit, knitting needles and yarn as well as a cute little hard cupcake that you can use as a treasure keeper.
Michelle was nervous that her packie was lost...have no fear Michelle, it arrived this afternoon and all was intact.... a red with white polka dot mug, a rooster (i think) pincushion, a candy bar, 2 boxes of flavored tea, 2 ornies, a candle mat kit and this sock monkey...is he cute or what? Makes me want to just smile when I look at him. OH...and lets not forget the cute, cute, cute, wallhanging. It says Tea Time and it's embroidered and looks antiquey...Michelle did a great job on it because it has a lot of small intricate stitches.
A gal is very lucky to have friends and family so close and so nice to treat me to this birthday loot!!!!
And to think...Christmas is 2 days away...more pressies to open LOL

Peggy, me again...I just had to come back and say how clever Michelle was to include the polka-dotted mug that matches your newly-covered desk chair. I don't know anyone else who has a chair and mug matched set!
