This is what greeted me when I went to work this morning…..stuck to the front door! EEEeeekkkkk was I ever this young?
I was also spoilt with a huge bunch of gorgeous flowers from all the girls I work with at my centre, I felt very, very spoilt as they also made up a lovely party lunch for me and everyone to enjoy. Thanks girls you certainly made my day!!!
But wait there’s more as I’d decided to leave my present unwrapping till I got home from work tonight and let me say i was again blown away!! I’m in a birthday fat 1/4 swap and the following pictures are what these fabulous girls sent me to celebrate my special day
For this swap we have a secret partner who is designated your birthday gift maker and Kaylee did not disappoint! A beautiful fabric covered journal ( I think she’s been stalking my blog as how else would she know I have a weakness for journals??) Also a beautifully stitched Babushka doll which is coming to live in my sewing room and a handy pencil case which I think I’ll use to house my special crochet hooks that I use the most….. but wait there’s more! some scummy, yummy red & white fabric now I know she’s been stalking my blog LOL!
Thank you Kaylee I love everything you made and sent me for my birthday
From the lovely Illene I received a selection of very pretty red and white fabrics a s well as a 25cm strip of “Scrumptious” Illene you certainly know the way to my heart and I thank you sincerely for my beautiful fabrics which I’m thinking of using in a special red and white quilt to remember my birthday with.
From Tracee I received these yummy red & white strips, I’m also going to be using these in the special quilt, still wondering if it will be a pieced quilt or have a bit of stitchery or applique in it…..decisions, decisions. Thanks Tracee you can never have to much red and white fabrics in my world.
Now this pretty bundle of lovelies come from the lovely Pat, spoilt again with more delicious red and white goodness! but that’s not all Pat also sent a lovely cottage garden thread called “Geranium” such a pretty delicate colour and I can’t wait to find the perfect project to use it on. Pat also included a small pair of scissors which will be coming with me to Tassie next week as they’re just perfect for travelling with. Thanks Pat I love them all!!
This lovely lot of goodies come from our swap Momma Cheryll and again I was spoilt rotten! some beautiful red and white fabric, a wooden craft keeper as well as DMC thread, quick unpick in my favourite colour red as well as the cutest tape measure ribbon which I think will be used in a couple of pin cushions??? Thanks Cheryll for my fantastic gifts as well as organising this swap you do a marvellous job as swap Momma!!
From Peg I received a selection of red and white fabrics for me to drool over as well as a big box of chocolates which I have to admit are slowly disappearing……don’t know where they’re going?? Peg also made me a journal, I don’t know where people get the idea I love journals??? MMmmm maybe Peg’s been stalking my blog as well, maybe Peg and Kaylee have been stalking in tandem??? All joking aside Thanks Peg for my thoughtful and lovely gifts they certainly brought a smile to my face
I have a few more gifts to show you but I think I’ll save them for tomorrow and another post I don’t want to overload you with too many photo’s in one go. Thanks girls for all my gifts and all the birthday emails I’ve received they’ve brought a huge smile to my face today and I appreciate each and everyone of you
