Lucky me :-)

What a lucky girl I am. Today I was able to relax and rest some more, and this evening I had some of my family over for pizza dinner and birthday cake. It's always so nice to spend some time with them, and I'll be able to see my other brother on Sunday.

I have received the most lovely treats. My Mum and Dad gave me a new set of saucepans that I have been coveting for a long time. My Brother and SIL gifted me with the cute bamboo plant - they're lucky you know :-)

Marty asked what I would like a little while back, and I gave him the choice of three items - an open toe darning foot for the Bernina, a new Dustbuster, or a thread-stand. I did the research for the thread-stand and the darning foot, and the location where he could find them - but I never expected that he'd get all three items! How lucky for me :-)

The thread stand thrills me - I'd been looking for one for a long time. This one is raw timber, and Marty's taking it to our cabinet maker who will stain it to match our furniture. I can't wait to hang it on the wall.

Thank you all for your birthday and get well messages - I have had the very best day.

Happy birthday Tazzie - you are one very fortunate lady - it makes such a differience getting presents that you want and are useful - I've asked my Dad to make me a thread stand for my christmas present this year and with the details I've given him, he's making a 'rack' that I can hang off the back of the door in my sewing room / studio once I get it sorted - then I'll always have something he made me

Happy birthday Tazzie,
It looks like you had a great day and got some really nice pressies. My birthday was last week and like you I was one fortunate lady.
I hope you have many more happy healthy years to create your beautiful quilts.
A friend gave me one of those thread wall stands and I love how pretty it looks filled with thread.
Enjoy your pressies.
Regards.
Anna

The thread holder is gorgeous.

Do you mind if I ask a question? Can we swap husbands?

OK - joke!
