Birthday fun!

At the end of last year, Cath from The Stitchin' Chicken organised a birthday thread exchange.  Last Saturday it was my turn to be surprised with the lovely cards and threads I received.  I was very good and gave them to Colin to put away for my birthday.  I was spoiled rotten as you will see!  In no particular order...

...from Gaynor.  She wrapped the threads in the pretty fabric and made the card herself.  It is so pretty!  Thank you Gaynor xx


...from Vicky.  Two of the colours were on my 'need' list which is impressive as there was only 17 to start with.  Thank you Vicky :)


...from Mary Jane.  The thread is called Peoria Purple which is also where Mary Jane lives - Peoria not purple!  How cool is that?  Thank you for the gorgeous threads and the lovely message in the card. It's nice to know someone gets 'it' xx


...from Cath.  Lovely coloured threads that matched the colours in the card...now that is dedication!  Thank you Cath, they are great! xx


...from Valerie.  Some more gorgeous colours of DMC.  Loved the card too.  Thank you Valerie! xx


...from Lonneke.  Another gorgeous handmade card.  It is so cute Lonneke.  I will look out for a little frame for it I think.  Lovely threads too.  Thanks Lonneke :)


...from Donna.  Another lovely card, chart and gorgeous threads.  The thread in the middle is a brand I have never heard of but it feels so soft.  Thank you! xx


Last but by no means least...from Nicole. She sent me some lovely, bright cheery threads to combat the miserable weather.  It must have worked as we had lovely weather all this week!  Thanks Nicole :)
