For 2018, I decided to join in again with the Fat Quarter Birthday Club, which is a little group co-ordinated for many years by swap Mumma extraordinaire, Cheryll.
Our task for each member of the group is to send a fat quarter of fabric in the persons chosen colour/style... & this year we are also sending a little something extra, that begins with the 1st initial of their name. So Fun!
Little parcels of goodness had been arriving during last week, in readiness for me to open on Saturday... yes it was MY birthday!
And holy smokes, I've received wonderful fabrics & extras... lucky-duck me!
The person to send me the Special Gift, was Julie... wow she really blew my socks off!
|How pretty is the wrapping paper?!|
Julie has sent me not one but two fun & oh-so handy table toppers
Julie also sent a fab scarf... how clever is it?!... and the Angels are just beautiful. I love wearing scarves (even wear cotton ones for sun protection in the summer) & this colour is going to fit right in with my favoured winter colours!
Just love these words with the Angels... my life would be so different without my human Angels!
Don't all my fabrics look great together?! Thank you again ladies for these beautifully chosen pieces.
Cheryll does a great job co-ordinating us each year, so thanks again for all your hard work!
My beautiful bloggy friend Sunny is my 'birthday twin'... be sure to pop over to her blog HERE & send her your good wishes.
And my annual birthday giveaway is very soon, so stay tuned!
Many of you will be familiar with the beautiful embroidery & blog of Renee, who blogs at
Last month, Renee joined in with an international movement called International Correspondence Writing Month, in which participants are to write a letter each day during the month of February.
You can read more about it HERE.
Renee asked if she could mail to me, which I was very pleased to say "yes of course!" & as a happy co-incidence her very pretty mail arrived last last week.
A postcard (I adore postcards!) featuring one of her stunning embroideries... I tell you, it is art... beautiful... & it's very easy to see the detail & dimension in Renee's work.
Thank you again Renee for asking me to be a recipient in your month of writing!
This post is well long enough now... if you've read down this far, I thank you😉
Here's a calorie & fat-free cake as a reward... XO
