Surprise Birthday Box

I am absolutely giddy!
My birthday was on Sunday.
It was a wonderful day spent with
my hubby.  We went out for a nice
dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant.
Now, I'm at the age that it's not really 
a big deal anymore, but I have to say, 
when this big box arrived today
from my buddy Ann, I felt pretty 
special!
This is what I unwrapped.
Look at all these goodies.
Beautiful R & R linen in my 
favorite counts, 32 and 36 :)
A pattern I've been wanting!
 A primitive huswife with
a wool star on the front.  She even
stitched this wonderful Halloween
ornament for me.  How special!
It's so pretty and just perfect.
 She knows just how much I love
Halloween and sent this
Pumpkin Head man too.
Isn't he cool?
 Now I can't wait to decorate for Fall.
♥ ♥ ♥
I just love everything my friend and
you have brought me more smiles than 
you could ever know.
Thank you!  I am so touched by 
your thoughtfulness.
 ~*~*~*~*~
I'll be back later this week
to show you some stitcher's finishes
that were sent to me.
They are super.
Big smiles to you all,
~Nan
