This has the been the Birthday that keeps right on ticking! Yesterday I received yet another gift…this time from my friend Claire! (Claire lives an hours drive away and we weren’t able to get together around my birthday…so yesterday was the day!!) Lucky ME!!
I almost fell over when I pulled this gorgeous pillow out of the gift bag!! It’s all hand stitched…sheer perfection…BEAUTIFUL! The sweetest pattern…EVER! It’s a Norma Whaley pattern from Timeless Traditions called ‘Springs Arrival’! Man, that woman is talented!
Claire said the three little birds represent my three daughters…Ahhhhh! How special is that!
Yup, that’s mama bird…but never mind ME…just look at those wee stitches! This is the Master at work…
As if the pillow wasn’t more than enough, Claire gave me this beautiful green scarf and P2 Green Valdani Thread…which got a chuckle from everyone! Of course it should say P1 but hey, I’ll take it! Hands off P2!!
Claire asked if I saw the pillow over at Norma’s blog…I had not!! I guess Norma asked readers to send in pictures of projects that they had made using her patterns. Claire sent in a picture of the pillow and Norma posted the pictures on the day of my birthday! My house was full of company and I had no time for blogging or blog surfing…Claire’s secret was safe! haha You can read about it HERE!!
I really should be modelling this scarf…but then I’d have to change out of my PJs…I’d have to wash my hair and have a shower and then put on make-up…find a nice outfit…geeze just too much work and besides you can’t wait THAT long! But let me tell you, I look dynamite with this scarf on…extremely youthful!! :o))
THANK YOU, CLAIRE!! You spoiled me rotten…AND I LOVED IT!
YOU have a super Saturday! I hope you get a chance to carve out a little time for yourself…doing something that you LOVE!!~P
