Thank You, Peg

Today is my birthday. Although the idea of being another year older is not particularly pleasant (!), I am feeling very lucky to have received a beautiful gift from my Friend in Stitching, the wonderful Peg.

 
This year we have to make a gift for our FIS birthday partner that starts with the first letter of the town in which we live. Peg made me a lovely covered notebook and a gorgeous needlecase all in beautiful Simplicity fabrics. (Still one of my all-time favourite fabric ranges.)


 The notebook came with a gorgeous pen in my favourite colour ...PINK. And doesn't it match the stitchery beautifully.


And just look inside the needlecase ... am I spoilt or what. Click on the picture for a closer look at the very cute pins.
 

 Thank you so much Peg. It is all adorable. I 'met' Peg soon after I started blogging and her blog is one I always check for new posts. She would have to be one of the most productive quilters I know ... and also one of the most generous. Hopefully one day we will meet in 'real life'.
 

This afternoon I have band practice. Not sure how I'll go as last week I ruptured a disc in my lower back! Rather painful and I haven't been able to do much stitching.
