My celebrations.....


My Birthday week began with the Tuesday Girls...... 
a couple of days early but who is complaining....

The day started with a wonderful gift and gorgeous flowers.....


A great kit for a Natalie Bird wallhanging pattern "The Happy Stitcher" 
I've been wanting for a little while now....

Thank you so much girls.... I LOVE it.....


Then we were off to enjoy a day out together....,
 First stop was Laidley west of Brisbane a very old town, great shops to see and of course a wonderful cafe....

"Rustique Rose Tea Room"



Morning tea of course....


I really hate having photos taken like most people but I actually like this one......


We found a few lovely little shops of which I forgot to take a photo..... ooooops
It had a great name ..... "Potato Studio" they sold such unusual goodies.

Our next place of interest was 
"Das Neuman Haus"

A very old Dutch house which is now a museum...

it also has a lovely little cafe there but we had only just finished our morning tea.









Look at these old relics I found in the house.....



 We did squeeze in lunch but no photos there either.....

We were off again to Gatton to another wonderful  shop...
"Grays Furniture"
now I know the name doesn't excite you but it has a Christmas section and heaps of other terrific goodies..... Did I take a photo ? Ummmm no forgot again, must have been the excitement or could it be "old age"....  hell no !!!!!!!

Once again I had a wonderful day with "The Girls" 

Norreen...., Teresa.... Sandi
Thanks soooo much for making my Birthday very special....

I did get an early Birthday gift from Gavan.....
My gorgeous sewing chair....
 Just love it.... thank you Gav


Our wonderful online stitching group "Friends in Stitching" also sent me a great gift...

Sarah made this sewing pouch with goodies on behalf of the group....

Love it girls and thank you Sarah

My favourite colour as well....







On Friday my daughters Heather and Liz both came with lovely gifts .....

I feel very spoilt....

From Liz Jake and Clayton.... 
this sooooo very cute snow dome and isn't it the cutest Bear you have ever seen.
Gosh the photo just doesn't do it justice ..... he is now in my bedroom.


From Heather Sylvio and June....

more Christmas...... hohohoho

Gorgeous....


We all went to our local Chinese Restaurant  for lunch...... they have the best food.

When we arrived home it was Pavlova and coffee..... yummo

Thanks Heather... Liz and Gav, I had the best day.


I also received a Birthday E Gift card from Corinne in Japan and it is for a terrific store 
"Peter's of Kensington" but now I have to decide what to buy..... what a problem.....

Well that wraps up my Birthday for this year.....

I had the best time with lovely phone calls, texts messages and gorgeous gifts from 
family and friends.....

Thanks heaps everyone.....

So it is "Toodles" from me for now......
