Yes that time of year rolled around again... another candle on the cake... a birthday for me.
Each year for our birthdays, my long-time blogging friend Kaylee & I exchange gifts... unfortunately there was a delivery mix-up with my parcel arriving... somehow the Postie delivered my mail to next door neighbours, & it sat on their door stoop for several days unattended while they were away... Luckily it didn't come to any harm... I got the parcel before my birthday & I now have my really lovely gifts from my friend.
Kaylee's made me a really useful block folder & layout mat... & she packed the front pocket of it with goodies! A great little pouch holding a glue pen & needles for EPP, & also some sweet little scissors charms. Three fq's from Bonnie & Camille rounded out this really spoiling parcel.
Thank you again Kaylee for your beautiful gifts & fq's... & most importantly for your thoughtfulness & friendship... xx
This year, I re-joined the Birthday Fat Quarter group with Cheryll & boy was I lucky to receive a few gorgeous parcels of goodies! You might notice a Halloween-ish theme with most of the fabrics; the theme was my pick for fabrics to receive this year, so I can put them towards a project I want to start on in a few months.
Amazing zipper pouch from Sue... don't you just love the fabric?! Sue filled it with fab items & so many of them had a New Zealand flavour... thank you so much Sue for spoiling me with such a collection of yummy pressies♥
Cheryll included some great witch silhouettes with the fq's she sent to me - perfect for a project or two...
Jeanette has sent me a really handy FQ, & some extras too... I use a LOT of adhesive notes, so this dainty folder of them is just perfect.
And these are from Illene... the handmade card is a gift in itself!
Thanks again ladies, I love it all & can use it all!
I've been working on this little pre-print stitchery lately, each week when I go to my patchwork group... so easy to stitch & chat... but Friday was mostly chat, given that was the day of my birthday.
Strange of me, I love to stitch these, but I never make anything with them... will have to make them up, or the time I put into stitching is for nothing, don't you think?!
I've not been doing much stitching or sewing during the week... but have at least given a little time to adding some more white hexy's around the edges of my Scrappy Hexy Quilt.
Some of you may recall that I do a 'Cake & Candles Giveaway' each year around the time of my birthday... I'm a little delayed with it this year, but will have details in my next post.
If you've read down this far, I thank you & I hope you'll come back another time... I see I have some new Followers - welcome & I hope you enjoy visiting here!
Merry Un-Birthday To Us All!
