I had a birthday a week or so ago and was totally and utterly spoiled by some of my friends and my family.
So.... in this post, I thought I would share a few of the thoughtful "primmy" gifts I received with you....
Now.....before you ask...NO..... I'm not going to tell you how old I was as I am trying to forget that part....lol.... (or maybe thats just the "ol-timer's" kickin' in....tee hee...lol).
Anyways enough of that old age natterin'......feist your eyes on these (and please feel free to pop on your spectacles, should you think you need them....who am I to judge!)
Okay.....now firstly let me tell you that I had a day out recently with a dear friend and we did what we do best....shopped for old goodies...lol. Now my dear sweet (but obviously senile husband) told me that if I saw anything I liked to grab it and he would give it to me as my birthday present.....was he game or what????
Anywhoooo.....this is what I found....
Isn't it just beautiful. It's Edwardian and is made from a voile type fine check fabric with cotton lace trim and piping.
Please take special note of the wording on the pattern below!!!
How special is that???....a quilted hanging designed especially for me by one of my favourite quilters!....with step by step instructions, the kind that only Jackie could write...lol.... Everything I need has been included and is marked as to where I should use it and explained in detail ....and even better still..... by doing this she has given me the opportunity to do something that I have wanted to do for such a long time....have a crafting day with her....one of my best mates!!
You see Jackie lives in VIC, some 8 or so hours drive away from my neck of the woods ...so a crafting day (let alone a one-on-one quilt class) is something that would never have normally happened....but look at us now!!!!
Jackie....I can't wait to get some free time to sit down with "you" and make up this little beauty....and I promise I will send photos!!! (the last step of the pattern process...lol)
Also from a couple of other long distance crafting friends I received these...
