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!
