Lucky me

 I have had such a good birthday, it has lasted well over a month. Its very exciting getting parcels in the mail. Just before my birthday I received this beautiful bag from my dear friend Tracee, its so me. The fabrics are perfect and I love the style. Thankyou so much Tracee. So much time and effort was put into this bag which makes it even more special.
 Not long now until Tracee comes to stay with us for a few days, I'm looking foreward to it alot. We have so much planned. I'll be sure to share photos.
 Yesterday I received this bundle of goodies from Barb, for our Lets Celebrate swap. Barb made some some beautiful sewing things. Look at the sweetest bag, I love the fabrics.
 Inside was all these wonderful gifts, a thread catcher, a pin cushion and needlecase and lots of chocolates. A quick unpick, needles, scissors and such pretty threads.
 Thankyou so much Barb, I love it all.
 If you read my blog regularly you will know that every Sunday I bake something for my boys to eat either at home or for their lunch boxes, as its school holidays I opted for something they can eat during the day. I made apple pie. I found this recipe on Red brolly blog, what I loved about it was you didn't need to use a pie dish as the pastry was the dish, it was so easy and tasted delicious.
Now I need to find some new recipes for this weekend,
Have a great evening, hope you find some sewing time.
