There's Going To Be Fireworks!

Can you believe it is a year since I celebrate the big one!
This year we'll be having fireworks. It is the
Diamond Creek Fair today and tonight there will be fireworks (only a few hundred metres from home).
Not everyone gets to have fireworks on their birthday! 
I opened this package to find my gift from Shez 
(Enjoying Life) wrapped up in some lovely birthday fabric. 
I don't know if you can make it out but the white balloons have happy birthday written all over.
Shez had made me a lovely little sewing folder. Included is a needle folder, a mini cross stitch kit and some pretty threads. Thank you so much, Shez.   
I was also spoilt by Barb (Barb's Creations). Barb had crocheted me a gorgeous scarf in my favourite colour, red. I'll be all set for next year's footy season. The photo has come out a bit bright. The red is actually a deeper colour. Thank you for my lovely scarf, Barb.
 The lovely Jenny of Elefantz sent me a copy of her newly released pattern, Holly Bird Designs. Have you seen it? There are six projects to choose from. You can get them from her Craftsy Shop. She has it for a special introductory price until the 17th September.
Now which project will I make first?
Thank you for this lovely gift, Jenny.

Isn't blogging a wonderful thing!
I have been blessed with so many friends.

I'm planning not to do too much today. My family are all coming over for tea. My brother Neville is visiting from Sydney and is preparing the meal!

A Day Sewing!

Football has finished for the year here 
at MacDonald's Patch. That meant last Sunday 
we could just stay home and do nothing!
I headed into my sewing room and made some more covered hangers for the present drawer.
I used this free pattern from Val Laird. It's a great 
pattern and I've now made nearly 30 of them!
So, six items to add to my OPAM 
with Peg and Kris this month.

Friday Night With Friends

For once there was no running around after the boys so it was lovely to finish dinner and just sit down to stitch. Mitchell and Austin headed off to the MCG to watch the final between Hawthorn and Geelong and Nelson went to youth group and then stayed over at his friend's place.
This is what I stitched. A sweet little angel.
Thanks to Chez for once again being a wonderful hostess.
Head over here to see what everyone else got up to.
