I had a birthday this week!

Here is a pic of the gorgeous fabrics I received from a group of crafty friends for my birthday last week!! It was a lot of fun opening all the parcels up before going to work.

In the online group I am in as well we have a birthday group. Instead of swapping fabric we now send in an equivalent amount of money for each persons birthday so when your birthday comes around you get a nice little sum of money to go shopping with! This year I received $200 (wow!!) which I am going to use to get my huge quilt quilted - the one that I made at the retreat last August.
I had to work on my birthday, but the day went well, and in the evening we went out to one of our favourite Italian restaurants for dinner which finished off the day beautifully!

Nothing much else happening here, just the usual routines. 
I have been stitching away on my Gardener's Journal quilt and today I did get some machine sewing in. I sewed the borders on my huge quilt mentioned above. I wanted to mitre the border but didn't have enough fabric so have emailed Kerry at Cottage on the Hill to see if she has some more. I was hoping to get it quilted before I go to Nundle in March but not sure if that will happen now. 
Oh well.
