Why the quacking? Because I am one lucky duck!
Yesterday was my annual celebration of being born... & boy was I so chuffed to receive so many messages, emails, cards & gifts... from family & friends, near & far. Really quite spoilt.
And of course thank you to everyone who dropped in to my little blog to send me good wishes... I really appreciate that!
I'd like to share some of the gorgeous gifts sent to me from friends I've made through blogging.
Maria & Sandra sent me a fab roll to store my quilt blocks or stitching in so it stays clean... such a clever idea & girls I will get so much use from it - thank you!
Leanne made me a fab topper/mat featuring a pieced cup & saucer, along with some other goodies. Silly me, I just couldn't work out what the shape on the topper was, but the image made a whole lot more sense when I turned it 90°!! (And no, a blood alcohol content was not in play!)
Kaylee has made me the sweetest little pinkeep & birthday card, plus sent a gorgeous fabric too.
The quilters button is heart-shaped.
Big hugs & smiles to each of you my thoughtful friends for sending your love & good wishes to me.
The lovely ladies of the Fat Quarter Birthday Club have sent me a beautiful selection of fabrics & goodies, too... thank you so much girls! This year I've gone with a black & white theme of fabrics to receive & wow aren't they totally gorgeous??!
Along with the fabrics, the girls have sent a pretty array of extras... some will add to my stitching enjoyment, some will add to my hips! Threads, trims, buttons, yums & a funky aqua print tea towel...
Each of us in the FQ Club will receive a special gift from someone else, & mine was sent to me from the very clever Barb
All I can say is WOW wow WOW... Barb made me a fab block folder, nice & big, & so beautifully sewn & stitched... I'm rarely rendered speechless, but this is one of those times... I had intended to get around to making one for myself, but now I don't need to worry. Mine wouldn't have been half as fab as this one!!
And just to make sure I have lots of stitching & sewing energy Barb added some purple-wrapped goodness... mmm, the Raspberry & Lemonade variety is new to me, can't wait to try it!
Another quack! xo
This is one of those times that has me reflecting on the wonderful world of blogging, the things I've learned along the way & most importantly the friends I've made.
I am really so blessed.
