Last Tuesday was my birthday. I had a lovely day and received some lovely gifts. Among them was the fabric and threads to make The Woodland Goddess. I have coveted this since the Stitch and Craft show 2008 where I saw Joan Elliot and her stunning work. It is stitched with beautiful hand painted aida called Fallen Leaves from Polstitches and uses metallic threads and Mill Hill beads.
I also received a kit for making a cross stitch coaster set of blackberries and blackthorns from my Dad. Thom took me out for a meal in the evening and a little time was then spent at the Cambridge KTOG. Thom gave me a yummy carrot cake (my favourite!) complete with candles. Thursday evening, my Dad, sister, her husband and my niece and nephews came to visit. We had nibbles and more cake.
