Birthday Girl!...

That's me today...another year older...how did that happen!

Well, I was secretly hoping everyone would forget...as it's getting a bit closer to another big O birthday...but to be honest, it is nice to get spoilt occasionally.

A bottle of Sheridan's coffee liqueur and chocolates from my DD.....Last year my DD bought me a bottle of Sheridan's coffee liqueur ...those that know me, know that I don't drink, but I really enjoyed a small glass of this on ice occasionally , and before I knew it, it was all gone!

Joe and DIL Angie gave me a bottle of J-Lo's "Live " perfume...a lovely card and lotto ticket from my friend Jenni.....and...

From dear patchwork friend Dana (no blog)...thank you, waving to you Dana...
This Moda Fabrics Sampler box of gorgeous Charm fabrics 2 1/2 inch sq's from 12 different Moda designers...480 sq's...aren't they gorgeous!
Did you know that other period names for charm quilts are...Odd Fellows or Beggar's Quilts...
...and to top off a lovely day a phone call from Janete in Brazil...only just arriving back there during the night before...
Well after a lovely lunch with family, I'm ready to put my feet up, relax and have a glass of Sheridan's...smile !
until next time...happy stitching....♥
