Birthday Gifts

Last Saturday, the 10th, was my birthday.  I celebrated by having a sewing bee with all my girlfriends and sewing the day away.  A lot of us stayed from 9am to 11pm. 

Though I wasn’t expecting anyone to bring me gifts, a lot of the gals did (and my lunch (Thanks Joan!) and dinner (Thanks Noelle) were bought by others).  It was the best birthday ever.  My husband was a bit miffed that I wanted to spend the day out, but it was exactly what I wanted to do on that day – sew the day away.

Gift from Kristin 

This gift was from Kristin.  Isn’t it the most darling thing ever??  I absolutely love the pins in it. 

Lila's Gift 

I got some glo-line from Lila.  I had asked everyone the day before if someone could loan me about 5” of it for a project because I couldn’t find my three rolls that I had- so she got me some.

Serena's Gift

This came from Serena, a fat quarter set and a candy lei.  She also brought a YUMMY cake that was beautiful that I forgot to take a photo of.


This came from Linda S.  Some very pretty batiks in a Jelly roll!  I think I am going to make a Pineapple Blossom with it.


Isn’t this the cutest card ever???  Susan gave it to me and said she had it for a while and then never could figure out who to give it to until she started calling me “The Queen Bee” since I host a monthly quilting bee.

Susan's Gift

Susan also gave me some green charm squares in the cutest bag.


Susan also made me a cake.  With HOMEMADE chocolate icing.  I have never had that before and oh my it was yummy!


Ellen handed these to me and said “oh this is nothing special.  Well, Ellen, I broke a needle not an hour later and didn’t bring any with me.  So yes, it was a perfect gift!  Love the box it came in!



Tahmi gave me some cute green fabs knowing that my favorite color is green.

Connie brought me this paper lei.  Oh my goodness it is beautiful! 

I forgot to take a photo of the cute little coin purse Roxy made.  I love it because my money floated around my purse and now I can keep it corralled.


This wasn’t a birthday gift, but a “thank you” gift from Carrol for helping her with a digital graphic.  Isn’t these just darling?

Lastly,  my husband got me the large one of these "(6’ x 6’):


It was just ordered today and may take a while to get here (the slow boat to Hawaii, ya know).  But I am excited about it.

Hope you have a great day!
