Birthday gifts are fun!

It's been almost a week since my birthday but I was waiting to see Elisa before blogging my gifts. Tonight was our once a month Nibble & Knit class. Lucky for me it's held here in Ojai. Elisa drives up here and we meet with a group of great women. We crochet, knit and talk talk talk. Oh yes, and someone brings goodies. It's a lot of fun! There are all levels of expertise and also lucky for me there's always someone willing to help.

Elisa brought me my gift. It's a table runner she weaved. I LOVE it. I had already decorated my table for Thanksgiving and it's the perfect touch. After Thanksgiving it will also fit in perfect in my dining room.
Okay, I know nothing about weaving and can't explain about the pattern she developed except to tell you that it spells my name. You'll have to go to here on Elisa's blog to read the explanation. What I can tell you is that I have an original table runner and it's beautiful!
She also brought me a fun gift. Can you tell what this is?
It's a dolphin. It opens up to hold my crochet/knitting notions. Way cool!

I'm a very lucky girl. My family also spoiled me. Glenn gave me an ipod. It has a video feature that I've already used and holds lots of songs. If only I'd known you can download from your CD's before I used up some of my itunes gift card. oops.... Erika & Robert gave me this cool digital key chain that holds about 80 photos. Now ask to see pictures of my grandkids. Ha! Greg got me a gift card from Barnes & Noble that I can't wait to use. Going there for me is like a kid in a candy store. Soooooo exciting! And last but not least (by any means) Anthony, Kourtnie & Launa gave me a necklace charm that says "#1 Grandma".

As I said, I'm a very lucky girl!
