What I did with my special birthday button

Vickie sent me the lovliest button for my birthday

Wanted to do something special with it

Over the years I have saved lots of cards given to me by my two daughters

They have just been kept in a plastic bag in the drawer

They are even more precious to me now, so I made this " envelope" to keep them in

Can You read what Lorraine wrote in the big card ,many years ago

Isn't that just so special?

Now I need some help Please!!!!

I have been unable to leave comments on some Blogs But seem to have over come that by signing in and out each time

Thanks Girls

Now I find that the pictures of all Followers have disapeared and even when I visit Blogs there are no pictures there,

so I can't follow any new Blogs Can any one help me with this

Well my birthday is over now that I have received this lovely gift from Terry

It was long time in the mail and we were worried it had gone AWOL but here it is

The lovliest wool pin cushion

Thankyou Terry

And a piece of fabric that I will certainly put to good use

Have also finished another Charity quilt

A friend gave me the fabric for this one Left over from a quilt I helped her piece

Hopefully soon the quilts will be delivered to the lady who distributes them to the sick kids

My Christmas Album

I started making my little Christmas album with the beautiful things sent to me by Teresa

The button was a gift from Teresa also , some time ago.

Iam having a little trouble getting the photos in

They are not the best photo's and also very emotional as a few days later my Darling girl left us.

My daffodills have been lovely this year

Have lots in various parts of the garden

The wind today has played havoc with them

Stayed inside and did a bit of sewing

Too cold to go outsidePosted by Picasa
