Long Service Award

These were presented to me at work today (fortunately not in front of everyone) in recognition of having worked for the same company for 30 years.Scary!! when did I get to be this old?

Anyway, instead of a watch/clock type gift, I am getting an EMBELLISHER !! it is on order and I should be able to pick it up later next week. Watch this space....

Hooray ! a much better gift than a gold watch. the embellisher is so much fun, but be warned the cost of needles is high, so check out the felting group on stitchin fingers discussion about needles - there is a link to a website in the US that sells cheap(er) needles. cant recall the name sorry
