I'm in an online group of lovely ladies known as the Fat Quarter Birthday Club organised by Cheryll. As it was my birthday last week, it was my turn to received some lovely goodies.
Just look at the pile on envelopes I had been putting aside ready to open on my birthday! I chose red as my colour.
From Sue. How cute is that dog!
This one was from Pat.
Helen sent this lovely one.
Lisa sent these cute little owls.
Fiona also added a cute flower brooch that she made.
The lovely Bev sent me this gorgeous rose fabric, along with teeny, tiny ric rac, buttons and thread. The fabric is not quite as bright as the picture.
This is what Cheryll sent. She also knows I like chickens and added some cute chicken fabric. There was also a Sewing Bits and Pieces box. Inside the box was a cute little penguin key ring.
O'faigh sent this gorgeous fabric. I've never seen this one before. She also sent a little wallet pattern.
My lovely friend Maria really spoilt me. Three lovely fat quarters, some very pretty green ric rac (once again the colour isn't right) and some lovely flower buttons.
There was a second parcel that arrived. Wrapped in the cupcake fabric was one of those little fold up bags to keep in your handbag. Maria wrote "Thought the folding bag will come in handy on your bloggy visits when you may buy more than you planned. LOL"! What a thoughtful person Maria is! I'll be able to buy as much as I want without worrying about how I was going to carry it all home!
Shez was clever and gave me my parcel at our bloggy meet a couple of weeks ago to save postage (Melody and I gave her hers too for the same reason!). Three beautiful Christmas fabrics. Vintage Santas and some fairy fabrics. Living in a house with only boys, I don't have any fairies in my stash! Now I have!
I was lucky enough to have my gorgeous friend Melody hand deliver my present. This beautiful box and inside the box was ........
Two lovely red fabrics, the most beautiful Michelle Palmer original art illustration on fabric bird, a brooch and some choccies. Melody also brought a yummy cake to our Show Committee meeting on the night of my birthday (we went out for tea the next night).
Thank you to everyone for my lovely goodies and birthday wishes. Can you believe it but not one fabric was duplicated! Thank you also to Cheryll for organising this fun swap.
