Lets talk birthdays,
I've just had one, and I think the easiest way to tell you about it is like this ...
some of these
cake baked by my children ... thanks A, for making sure your big brother made an appearance :)
Then there was the East Midlands Modern Quilt Guild meeting at Stitchcraft Studio in Grantham, where Mandy guided us through the intricacies of the Amy Butler Weekender bag ...
thank you to Di, a beautiful pouch and mug, which is seeing action daily :)
and Liz (no Blog) for a snap pouch, beautiful!
and Kerry, for a beautiful decoupage embroidery hoop and a Aurifil variegated thread,
that just happens to match my bag fabrics!
and then last week it was Kitchen Guild, and it we were celebrating Justines birthday too!
so, with my new knowledge I set to on a reduced Weekender bag!
I'm pretty darn pleased with it, and I know Justine loves it too!
And I won! Hadleys Pincushion, she did the draw on my birthday
and Oh .... its beautiful!
Thank you Hadley, I love it!
and as if that wasn't enough, the very talented Kitchen Guild ladies spoiled me good an proper!
A cover girl Cushion from Lynne ...
and a beautiful Voile cushion from Katy,
and to think, I delivered her voile quilt back to her too! Sneaky!
but I do love it, and she quilted it herself too!
and a fabulous star cushion from Justine ...
Honestly Ladies, I use all them everyday now :)
a beautiful pouch and matching purse from Mandy
and from Laura Jane, the most gorgeous pouch with the poshest carriage fabric ..
and of course, my favourite Art Gallery Fabrics!
A girl can never have too many pouches or cushions!
Thank you everyone for making my birthday so special, I am truly blessed with family and friends
