Birthday Club

I belong to a lovely group of ladies who participate in a Fat Quarter Birthday Club. It is overseen and organised by dear friend the fabulous Cheryll of Gone Stitchin'
We get to nominate a colour range or flavour of what we may like to receive by way of a fat quarter.
This year I nominated anything vintagey from Moda. You also get to make a special gift for one on your list. My Angel was Claire from ClaireBear Quilts. Poor Claire is very unwell but she has still managed to spoil me so much with this beautiful parcel.
A lovely fabric project basket, the sweetest little tissue holder, Not 1 fat quarter but 4! Two of the yummiest charm packs, one of which is Christmas, lovely perle threads and a delicious chocolate which may/maynot be still in existence. Thank you so much Claire. I love it all!!! I wish you a very speedy recovery. Take care of you xxx
The other lovely fat quarters all came with a pinch of extra spoiling too I might add. Thank you Barb, Anthea and Sharon....all gorgeous!
Thank you Tarnyia, Chookyblue and Dzintra...
 I wish you could smell the soap Dzintra added to my parcel....oh it is just devine. It was called Ocean. I am going to have lots of fun playing with all my new little fatties.
Thank you lovely ladies for helping make getting another year older so much fun.
There has not been too much stitching going on around here....however a lot of hand quilting is taking place.
Have a lovely weekend all.

Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
