Birthday Pressies

A big thank you to all the girls from Friends In Stitching and a very big thank you to Sarah for my special pressies.
It all started with the beautiful butterfly paper wrapped around my pressie...oooh can't wait to open it..

I love my pressies Sarah, thank you very much and the bag is just perfect - I am going to show it off at the next gathering of The Tuesday Girls.

This day has been just perfect...and thank you everyone for all my birthday wishes...
