9 Patch block swap,fat 1/4 swap & last of the birthday gifts!

 I've been ill for most of April with different things and although it's my birthday month I'm actually looking forward to seeing the end of this month this year, hopefully May will be a better month for me health-wise....in-between being sick, trying to work etc.. I managed to finish this months blocks for the 9 patch block swap I'm in and decided to finish May's as well just in case I have another month like this one, I'm now a month ahead which gives m a bit of breathing space phew!
 These pretty fat 1/4's, ric rac and thread were sent to me for my birthday from Claire, thank you Claire they certainly helped me feel much better this month with there loveliness :)
 and these pretty fabrics and tape measure ribbon also came for my birthday from the lovely Helen, I think I have lots of different red & white fabrics to make my quilt now, thanks Helen :)
 I also got this lovely surprise from Melanie, so, so pretty! Thanks Melanie I'm sure I'll have the perfect project to use these with :)
 These gorgeous gifts were presented to me on Friday from the lovely Vanessa when she came over to my house to sit and sew with me for the day, totally spoiled I was!! Thanks Vanessa and we'll have to make sure we sit and sew again real soon :)
 These yummy red & white fat 1/4's, thread and buttons came from our fat 1/4 leader Cathy ,love, love, love red & white in case you didn't know lol....Thanks Cathy :)
and these I sent off to Lyn my swap partner for this month fat 1/4 swap, Lyn's just let me know she's received them and loves everything I sent her phew....wipes brow :)
