Not even my birthday!

Today I got a couple of lovely surprises.....

My Mum has just returned from spending some time with my Aunt Lin who is not well.... but even while she is unwell she still thinks of me, and sent me this beautiful timber block-keeper that she had custom made with my name on the top. It is lined with felt to protect my blocks and is beautifully made!
She even threw in some nice new blades for my rotary cutter.

 Thankyou sooooo much Aunty Lin.... love you lots!

I also received some lovely goodies in the post:

  • The latest Homespun Issue with gorgeous projects from Natalie Lymer, Janelle Wind and Jodie Carleton just to name a few.

  • My third "Bagalicious Club" kit... a lovely design by Janelle Wind that I might save to make on the "Club Quilt" Retreat coming up.

  • And a new novel "The girl with the dragon tattoo".... can't wait to start this one!

So SPOILT....should keep my busy for a while!

Until next time.....
