Bonnie spent the day with me on Saturday...she brought me a lovely fob that she made for my birthday. The music note charm is such a wonderful touch!

She also was on a hunt for me and found this VERY pretty scissor frog for me...she has a good way with the store owner and got me a good deal!

So I've added my scissors to it and love the look.

My mother made me this lovely stitched piece and framed it herself for my birthday...it has a place of honour on my stitching cabinet.
I love it soooo much!

It was my Mothers 95th birthday yesterday and we had dinner at my brother and SIL (Both standing) My other brother is beside me with my other SIL at the end of the table. Mom at the head.

Mom enjoyed having just a small do with just her family!
It was a wonderful dinner!

My family
I am the luckiest person in the world to have my Mother and my brothers living within minutes to my home!
We are close in all ways! That in itself is a gift from God!!!

Stitch with happy fingers.

Love your gifts! Bonnie did a good job of finding that scissor fob. It's lovely.

Happy belated Birthday Beatrice! What date in August? Mine is the 8th. Happy belated birthday to your Mom as well! She looks fantastic for 95!

Love your gifts! Just imagine receiving a gift from your Mom at her age! I lost my Mom in 1983 to Ovarian Cancer and I still miss her to this day. She was a stitcher as well. I really like the scissor fob that Bonnie made for you. So appropriate with the music charm.

Lovely fob, lovely frog. Great new acquisitions. And glad you had a nice dinner. Family is so important to some of us, and I can't understand how some families are so dysfunctional.

Happy belated birthday to you and to your mom. The piece she stitched for you is just gorgeous.
Enjoy all your other gifties.

What wonderful gifts!

Happy belated birthday to you and your mom. I love the piece that she did for you. How lucky you are!! I am envious that you live so close to your brothers and mom, too. I have three brothers, one of whom is one of my best friends, and I miss them SOOOOO much.
