Presents

Fireworks is together.  I love the border fabric - such a great mix of all the fabrics in the quilt top.


There was a fair stack of these lovely bright fabrics left, so I decided to make a quick zig-zag quilt - I owe a few people baby quilts.  This one will be going to a sweet 2 year old soon.


I had a day off last week and took these two quilts and the X-block cot quilt over to Karen for her to quilt.  

My friend Barbara is recently home from a 5 weeks cruise around Asia.  We had dinner together last week and she gave me this huge box containing my birthday present but I couldn't open it till I was at home.


This is what was inside - it's just fabulous!  And it suits my home (and me) so well.

 

For our on-line group's birthday present, Sarah was sending to me and this is how my parcel arrived - stitched up all the way around!  Cheeky thing.  Such a fun idea and she used lovely Fig Tree fabric for the "wrapping".



Out came the unpicker.  So many lovely, handmade goodies inside - all made using more beautiful Fig Tree fabrics.


Had a lovely birthday/Mothers' Day with all the family and catching up with friends during the week.

A friend, Lynda, came to visit during the week and also brought me a present:


 My friends have great taste and style :)

Hello Lynda,

What a fun bright post, the extra fabric quilt is so lovely and bright. Sarah certainly had you un-picking, actually a great way to make sure it all stays together too. Your friend's bought you some lovely gifts, the light is so damn cute as is the shirt. Maybe you can start a Lynda club like the Shirley club.

Happy days.
Bev.
