The "Festival of Loz!"

Thanks to all those who have left commens wishing me a Happy Birthday....the big day is tomorrow.........but I feel like I have been celebrating for a while now....LOL......so the "Festival of Loz" has been ongoing......!......and why not it only comes around once a year! I was spoiled rotten with gifts and spent precious time with family and friends......something money cannot buy! Here are a few pics from the day..............
The Prince outdid himself and gave me a laptop.........as I said I was spoiled rotten.......! His birthday card said it all........Happy Birthday to someone who is high maintenance..........but worth it!.....LOL....or perhaps he just wanted to see me a bit more often in the evenings! Princess Ryley was here yesterday...... at a little over 8 weeks old.... just checking things out...........
So it was back to work today.......nothing stitching related to show - no time for stitching at all over the weekend..but the plan is to take a few weeks off over the Christmas holidays and the sewing room will feature heavily on the list of places to spend time over the holidays........!

I received an unexpected surprise today when a parcel arrived from Marc.........the gift wrapping featured notes to me.......starting with a "warning"....not to open before the 16th.......followed by several more.......sorry Marc......it got the better of me.........! Thanks so much......a lovely glass pendant - I love it!........

Nice try though Marc......I thought about not opening the present until tomorrow.......for a nano second....LOL......!

Best be off - need to get my beauty sleep especially as I am about to clock up another year....!

Thanks again for all your good wishes for my birthday...........'til next time..........Lorraine
