Showing more birthday gifts

My sweet friends from quilting invited me to morning tea and presented me with gifts on my birthday.  I am so blessed to have  such lovely friends.
Marleen gave me this gorgeous bag.  Think I will take it to quilting club tomorrow!  She has put pockets inside and included a little note book for me. (She knows how forgetful I am :-)  She also had a retractable tape measure tucked into one of the pockets. Very handy. 
Joan really spoiled me and gave me all these treasures.  The tatting is some of her Mums and some of the antique laces and cottons are from her Grandmother. I feel privileged that she should give them to me.  She included a lovely cake of soap as well.  Thank you my dear friend.

Yvonne has been making these gnome pj bottoms for all her friends and I had my fingers crossed she would make me a pair for my birthday.  She did not disappoint me.  These are so fun, and tonight it is cool enough for me to give them their first outing.  

I am a little behind with my posting but next post I hope to tell you about a fabulous day we had sewing up some fabric baskets.  Mine is still a work in progress as I decided to unpick some of it.  My husband said it was looking more like a huge Rastafarian beret !!!

You have wonderfully generous friends, but I'm certain that is simply a reflection of your generosity towards them!
