Stitching and Pre-Brithday Gifts

It has been a very busy week!!!  First, I want to update my stitching and then at the bottom are some awesome cross stitch/not cross gifts I have received for my birthday.  These are pre-birthday gifts since the big day isn't until tomorrow (Monday).  I turn the big 40!!!!

I finished 1 page on my seasonal 9-patch design.  Spring turned out really cute....this week I will be focusing on fall as you can see below.

Fall 9-patch...working on this week
Mark invited some friends over on Friday night for a cookout and pre-birthday dinner.  He bought me an AWESOME birthday cake but I will post this tomorrow.  My friends came and Mark grilled ribs and chicken.  We had salsa, guacamole and cheese dip from the local Mexican restaurant.  My gifts were a GC to HL and a GC to Disney.  Do my friends know me or what?  I couldn't get a picture of the Hobby Lobby GC because I already used it!!

 I bought myself the Bambi Thomas Kinkade Disney Cross stitch kit with one of my HL GC. This has been on my wishlist for awhile!

 Mom and I went to lunch with my Aunt on Saturday. She also gave me a HL GC. I found the newest Thomas Kinkade kit - THE LION KING!!!! Isn't it awesome?????

 Last Sunday, we had a stitching party at my house.  I got some wonderful gifts from my stitching friends.  I was so happy to get all my gifts!!  I loved my new school post-its and a bag of markers and pens.  I am such a nerd...I love office supplies.  Not sure why but I do!!!!  My friends are such wonderful and generous people and I just want to say Thank you!!!

Happy Birthday Vickie. I love the Disney kits. Can you tell me where you got them. I would love to have them. Also, I love your 9 patches, can you please tell me the designer.

Thanks for your help.

Happy birthday and very nice haul :) Lots of goodies. Love the thomas kinkade disneys. I'm currently working on snow white from the series myself, and I know theres a few others being worked out there.

What great pre-birthday celebrations! I didn't know you were an office supply nerd... so am I. I love office supplies, lol.

Awesome gifts, Vickie. Happy fourtieth birthday (in nine minutes). I really celebrated mine. I have a moderate depressive disorder. Well, it's severe when I'm not medicated. I was pleased that I made it that far, and so asked all my blogger friends to send me horrible fortieth birthday cards. Of course, the supplied me with much laughter. Too funny, what's out there!!! Hope you have a great birthday tomorrow!!!

What lovely gifts from your friends! I've been coveting the Thomas Kinkade Disney kits for a while so I'm quite jealous.
