Initial Hearts and a Cake!

Initial Heart Swaps gifts are being sent and received all over at the moment
and mine arrived yesterday :)
I was very lucky to be receiving from Kaye over at Kitten Stitching
Very Spoilt as you can see.
Here is a closer look at my new beautiful framed cross stitch.
My new frames Cross stitch is going to live in my sewing space
so I can enjoy it each and every day.
Thank you Kaye.
Also arriving at its destination yesterday was the gift I send to
Maria over at The Next Stage
I decided to make Maria a Matryoshka Angel from
Rosalie Quinlan's book "Gift" 

and added some yummy Creamy Milk Chocolates
 with Praline and Crispy Wafer centre. Knew I should have
grabbed another one for me :o)

a Craft Keeper and some threads also.
And to finish off our day yesterday we got to enjoy
Birthday Cake
as requested by the Birthday Boy - Aiden

 Looks good, even if I do say so myself but tasted even better!

Have a great day,
hugs, Sharon
