My kind of birthday ....

Today is my birthday - hip hip hooray!!  Yesterday a card came through the post and I assumed it was a birthday card when in fact it was a card from the lady whose quilt I recently returned after longarming it.  This is what she had to say:
"I would like to thank you so much for the lovely quilting you have done for me on my applique quilt. In particular the additional spirals on the sunflowers and the extra detail on the leaves. I am sure ...... will be most thrilled when they receive the quilt ....."
The quilt in question can be seen over here.  What a fantastic birthday present to get!
The morning started with presents .... lots of handmade ones and my youngest daughter made us all pancakes.  It doesn't get any better than that.
I thought my daughter had bought this set but when I asked her where she had got it from she told me she had made it and just put it in an old package she had!

I am just blown away by their creativity sometimes .... and all this made in secret without me knowing about any of it!  My eldest daughter is cooking dinner tonight and I don't have to do any clearing up - bliss!!
I have also had time in my studio and am well on my way to finishing my Rainbow Mini quilt for an IG swap.  Hopefully it will be a finish tomorrow for Finish it up Friday and there will also be a giveaway announced. xx


  1. Happy birthday! They have been so creative, lovely to get such thoughtful presents!

  3. Happy Birthday! I had to smile when I saw she included a cat in your lego set!

  4. Happy Birthday. To receive a card like that would've made a great start to your birthday, and the handmade gifts fro the children are great. Whoever is the painter made a very good job of the bird. Hope you have had a great day.

  5. Happy birthday. It's my mom's birthday too. I love the very thoughtful gifts you received.

    Your quilting is fabulous on the Rainbow Mini. The design flows so beautifully.
