More presents and almost a finish

 I have a few more birthday gifts I would like to share with you, these lovely ones are from my on line stitching group. A beautiful recipe folder complete with recipes that we each put on the blog. Those Anni Downs fabrics are so pretty.
 Look at these cute cupcakes, the pot holder is so lovely I don't want to use it.
 The theme for our birthdays this year is Cook, Eat, Grow so I have the recipe folder full of recipes to cook and a lovely scone or cookie cutter to use. Some lollies to eat and some sunflower seeds to grow. A well thought of gift, thanks Teresa. You did a great job.
 Lillian gave me this lovely photo frame, She is my boss at work. She said to put a photo of my family in it, put the frame in my sewing room and don't forget I have a family to feed when I'm busy sewing. I thought that was clever.
Paul has already come into my sewing room about 6pm and asked whats for dinner. I'm sure he thinks I have forgotten all about them.
 My lovely friend Cathy gave me this fantastic rotating cutting mat. It will be great for cutting out my hexagons.
 Last Sunday when I shared my gifts from Tracee I forgot to show you this beautiful heart she made me. Its so pretty with the pastel buttons sewn all around it. Thank you Tracee, I loved your gifts.
 Lastly I am almost finished with my gardeners journal quilt. Just  the last row to sew together and then I can do the borders.
I had to stitch the birdies in the tree and last night I did those so now its ready to finish off. I can't wait to get it all together.

Have a wonderful day.

Lovely gifts and your quilt is looking great, Leanne. Think you need a slow cooker so that you can shove everything in before you head to the sewing room and dinner will smell heavenly when Paul gets to 6 pm. XX

Time can quickly get away from us when we get out in our sewing rooms...Vicki's idea for using the slow cooker is a good one! Its so good when we come out of our S/Room after a sewing frenzy with the smell of tea already to go!!
Beautiful gifts and LOVE your GJ! Pretty Primula's too (he he)
