A few more holiday snaps and my birthday.

 I just wanted to share a few more holiday snaps from our trip to USA. Since we arrived home just over a week ago it hasn't stopped raining, I really want to go back to the warm days and lots  of sunshine.
 My boys kept teasing me about only going on little rides like a tea cup  so I proved them right and did just that. Our youngest son came with me so I didn't  look silly on there by myself.
 The sunsets in Hawaii were beautiful.
  We went on a snorkelling tour and that was so much fun, the fish were so colourful and you could almost touch them.

 There was lots of  Hawaiian quilting , I bought this cushion for my boss at work,
 While I was away  it was my birthday so when I returned home I had lots of fun mail to open, I received these beautiful goodies from Fiona who belongs to our on line stitching group.
 I also received these gorgeous projects from my good friend Nicky, all in my favourite colours and fabrics.
Even a wonderful Cath Kidston notebook,

I was thrilled with everything, thankyou Ladies. I still have more presents to show you  and something exciting to tell you  but they will have to wait til another day. Time now to  get ready for work.

Have a wonderful day.

Hawaii is such a beautiful holiday destination, its 5years since I was there. Did you realise that most of the patchwork that is readily available in tourist locations is made in factories to look like handmade....I was devestated when I was told by a local. Belated Happy Birthday!!!

Looks like you had a fantastic time. I love the States. So much to see and do. I'd love to travel right through it in a car one day. When I was a 'worker' our head office was based in Rhode Island, it was such a drag having to travel to the East coast for a conference...haha..not!
You do look very happy on the cup and saucer ride. And such lovely gifts.
