This lace card and the very cute scissors came from Heidi. The scissors have a bunny running along.
I love red and she made this fob with stork scissors as the charm. I love it. Thank you Heidi.

This gift is from my Sister, Ruth. She also took me to lunch. I love the Fancy Nancy book and read it at her house. LOL. I haven't read all of the Laughter one yet. The pin cushion is really cute. Thank you Ruthie.

Brenda, my niece, brought me wonderful dark chocolate and this loose tea and tea ball to make the tea. Thanks Brenda, three pieces are missing already. LOL

This wonderful Wedgewood ornament was sent to me by my pen pal in England. We have been writing since we were eight years old. (That is a very longgggg time). She has given my many Wedgewood pieces over the years. Thank you so very much Marlene.

Angela, from our online stitching group sent me this DMC thread and this great smelling lavender bag. Wish you could smell it, wow. Thank you Angela.

Our group started a thread event this year for birthdays. We are supposed to send a card and one embroidery thread. Everyone said what type they prefer. I am new to stitching, so I like DMC so far. This one is from Joni, who lives in Lancaster, Pa. Thank you Joni.

Lots of presents for the birthday girl. And even a lunch thrown in for good measure. :) I am glad you liked the scissors and fob I made you. I had to fend off your questions about getting the set of scissors in the end as I did not want you to suspect you were getting them in the end. Sometimes little girls have to be

Love and hugs ~

Happy Birthday! I like the idea of the online stitching group sending floss for your birthday!! I like DMC the best too, maybe it's bz it's what most of the stores carry around here. I'm going to the eye doctor next month and hopefully he can get me seeing well enough to stitch again. I miss it.

I'm happy for you that you have received such nice gifts. You have certainly earned it! You are such a sweet woman, you deserve to be pampered. I love the card that says that women don't grow older, just wiser...
Everyone has some need to be spoiled every now and then.

Your previous blog entry was very special. How nice of you and George to visit Sweetie. She must have really surprised to see the two of you!

groetjes Sonja

Lovely, lovely gifts, Nancy. I always use the scissors and the fob Heidi made me last year. We share the little red and white beads, fun!
You should give me your address for next year, I would like to send you an apple pie ... OK, not that practical in the mail ... something else then, something Dutch. Feel free to answer!

Hugs, Carolien

Nancy - I feel so bad. How could I ever have not known when you celebrate your birthday? I will make it up to you. You received some lovely gifts. Your online stitching groups must have lots of fun. Happy Belated Birthday!

What a wonderful display of birthday goodies :>) Thanks for showing them to us. I love the gorgeous gifts from your sister Ruth. Sisters always seem to find the nicest things. I'm always on the lookout for things for my sister which i collect for months before her birthday. The little pincushion is so so pretty!! I love the leaping bunny scissors too. What a lovely gift.
I hope you had a wonderful day.
Hugs, Angela
