Gifts to me and from me!

Thank-you for all the anniversary wishes! We had a lovely Indian meal after work and my DH bought me a bouquet of all my favourite flowers! I received a gift in the post during the week from Jenn. Jenn has just stitched LHN's Gourmet Garden and knew that i liked it so sent it on to me! Jenn your gift was a great surprise and made my day. Thank-you so much, that was really kind of you. Stitching blogger friends are great eh?! Im gonna stitch this one for my kitchen one day!
Speaking of gifts. Remember the competition i had on here to decide a new name for my blog? Well, i had so many great entries but i chose "Clydeside Stitching" as i overlook the river Clyde from my place. Lesley suggested that and her prize was a wee stitched gift from me. I made Lesley a pincushion. Merci is a freebie from this siteand this was the backing fabric (not a great picture-sorry!) which also had french on itLesley, i hope you liked it and thanks again for naming my blog!
