I am so Lucky!

My birthday was earlier in the month.  I celebrated with my husband and daughter on the date.  We had cupcakes and a little fancy carrot cake plus presents of course. New slippers and lip balm, a gift certificate for ebooks and ITunes, and I got a massage with a gift card from last year.   The next day I went to Quilt Expo and bought some fun things at the booths - my birthday present to myself.

This week I went to lunch with my friends and we celebrated again.  They gave me some lovely gifts --

Beautiful flowers, wine, a spoon rest, and a jar of apple curd
Doesn't that sound yummy?

This gorgeous box was filled with a lavendar neck pillow
and some lavender incense cones.  Somebody knows how to spoil me.

One of the gifts came wrapped in this fabulous tissue paper.  
The edges are all cut in hexagons.  Only a quilter
could love this and want to cut it up and make a quilt
from it. Right?

The other side.  Love those flowers.

I also received two packages in the mail.  A friend has enrolled me in a card of the month event from Stampin' Up.  The first month's package came this week.  That should be fun to try too.  

The second package was a gift from Moda and Kathy Schmitz.  I entered that giveaway on her blog last week and I was one of several chosen to receive these beautiful new fabrics that Kathy designed.  The line is called Piecemakers.  If you haven't seen these, you have to go over to Kathy's blog
 and check them out.  The fabric doesn't go on sale until January, but I can see that I am going to need some yardage when it becomes available.  The top fabric in each of these packs is covered with words and symbols about quilting.  There are two shades of tan and two shades of blue.  Just my colors.

So you can see I am one lucky duck!  But I am most grateful to have such wonderful family and friends in my life that are willing to celebrate with me and make me feel so special.
