More Birthday Gifts!

Today I'd like to show you some other gifts I received for my birthday.
I've quite recently met Sonja through Blogland and she kindly sent me these lovely needlework items.
This is the vintage needlework basket. Look at the pins in the shoe pin-cushion!
 Here is the cloth basket of fabrics - so many colours!
Sonja also sent me a hole punch and a CD of some of her artwork designs and everything was wonderfully presented using the same pretty artwork including a birthday card!
Everything Sonja creates is so beautifully made and you can see lots more of her lovely miniatures on her blog 

Oly, my 'mini' friend and the other member of our dollshouse club gave me a gorgeous chocolate cake and a Janet Granger kit to stitch a pretty handbag!
Oly makes so much more than miniatures. The only thing I know that she can't do is crochet. She has been making cloth art dolls recently and made me this cute pencil topper!
If you'd like to see more of Oly's work you can find her here
As you see I was totally spoiled this birthday!
