Gifted ~ ~ ~

I have some of the most amazing friends!  I was gifted this beautiful quilt by dear friend Dolly who adopted my Eema.  It is in beautiful shape and is hand quilted.  I absolutely love it.


Sweet Ann from 1803 Ohio Farm Baskets sent me this little basket to hold my scissors, rug hook, etc.  I had asked her to send me some business cards because where ever I take my wool tote basket, people want to know where I got it.  I never expected to get this wonderful basket.  Lucky me!


Joanne sent me this fun pug to sew in to a pillow.  Joanne,  I promise I will do better with this than I have done with the feather tree kit you sent me (hanging my head in shame!).



For my birthday, hooker friend Melissa gave me this book (perfect) . . .


. . . and this Edyth O'Neill candle mat complete with wool.  This will be a fun, quick hook!  


In addition a couple of people very dear to me were extremely generous cash-wise to help defray the cost of my car repairs and new tires.  PLUS . . . I was gifted Ellie's mom's almost new iPad.  I am truly blessed by the friendship and generosity of so many people.  

Jake and I had a good day at the indoor amusement park.  He thought the mirrors were great fun.  Tomorrow we are off to see the Croods :)  


Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

You truly are blessed with thoughtful and loving friends and that's because you are such a generous person yourself. Great gifts. I hope that you had a great birthday. How could you not have had a great birthday with all this love pouring in.

James love playing with those mirrors too at the museum of Science in Ottawa.

Happy Birthday.
