Birthday Blessings...

Oh, are these not the most charming floral sewing tins...?

Perfect for storing sewing goodies in and oh!  So beautiful and decorative in the sewing room...



My mom and dad sweetly gifted me with these lovelies for my nineteenth birthday last Sunday...I am hoping to do my sewing corner up a little bit this coming year, and these will be a delightful addition!


My dear sister, Nancy, made me these two adorable crocheted baskets which I will use to store my buttons, bobbins and other little sewing things in!


It is my hope to finally purchase my own sewing machine at the end of this month, my friends...I simply cannot wait to share the exciting news with you when it occurs...{{smiles}}

Until then, I am enjoying picking up some sewing work again and filling my market stall which is somewhat empty at this time of year!

~
And dear friends...I was truly touched by all your sweet, heartfelt birthday emails and comments you sent me...thank you ever so much...they put a big smile on my face!

~
Praying you have a truly blessed week...may it be creative too!

"Every good gift and every perfcet gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow or turning."

~ James 1:17, KJV

Hi Kelly-Anne!! Your sewing tins are precious, they made me smile! I love to sew, don't do much any more but there was a day when you would always find me at my machine. Enjoyed my visit, hope you have a very blessed SonDay.

Happy Belated Birthday Kelly-Anne! Since the cold weather has arrived, my mind has been on trying to manage a little "corner" for sewing, since I don't have a room that I can devote to it. So, I was glad to hear of yours, and I thank you for sharing the pictures. I love your tins. I have a very old, round cake tin that was my grandmother's sewing "box", left just the way she had it. I would like to be able to arrange all the different containers with notions together in one organized display. I'm always thinking and looking for ideas. Maybe you can show us your sewing corner sometime. God bless you, sweetie. Rebecca

Oh what delightful treasures to be gifted with! It will indeed make your sewing time more quick and efficient, as well as something lovely to keep your oft-used sewing notions in! And your own sewing machine - how exciting! I know you are probably quite busy sewing up some new fun things, and look forward to seeing them, when you can of course! Have a blessed day dear friend!

Hello sweet Kelly-Anne. A big hug and birthday wishes from across the pond. Your tins are so delicate and sweet just like you. What a darling gift and the crocheted baskets are lovely.

I have missed your visits and I apologize for not stopping by sooner. You always share the most beautiful projects and photos. I hope you get your sewing matching soon. I can just imagine all the beautiful things that you will create. I just made some lovely paper cones to use for flowers and candies. I know it is a project you would love very much. Stop and check out the tutorial.

Have a lovely week sweet friend.
