My Goodbye Party

My kindred group "Friends In Stitches" had a party for me this past Saturday. We had a lovely pot luck lunch and then we sat down in Margarets lovely Living room  and I was presented with Large Gift Bag of Presents. Many of them were hand made and all of them were beautiful and just perfect. I can not thank the my friends enough.

 My BFF, Kelly gave me a handmade "Biscornu" pincushion. We are so alike. I laughed when I opened it because I had wanted to make one for her for Christmas but never got to it.


Brenda gave me this lovely handmade bag in a sewing motif.




Sandra gave me this pretty Pashmina and a Clover Bobbin keeper, one that will get lots of use.


Margaret gave this beautiful handmade sewing box adorned with her lovely wired ribbon flowers.



Elizabeth gave me this exquisite handmade Picture, wall hanging made of silk, entitled "Going Home".
It is a true art quilt and will cherish it and treat it like the original piece of  Art that it is.   


We had a fabulous day, the food was great. The chat was fun and the gifts were "Over the Top" but mainly the friendship was irreplaceable.




Here we all are in very stages in FUN.

Great! Isn't it nice to get presents at any age?
Pack those up and keep moving.
Two weeks to go!
