Another Year

Yesterday was my birthday and I certainly wasn't forgotten! Margit got me in the mood for my birthday on Sunday, by buying two HEAD-patterns for me which reminded her of my cats. This one reminded her of Luna and Kruimel. It is called 'Glamour'. And this one reminded Margit of Elvis, our black tomcat. It is called Luna (!!) by Sarnat. Thank you, Margit!

Next Ineke surprised me on Monday with this brand new pattern by Châtelaine (Martina Rosenberg) called Herbularium. It is the first of four new gardens. The group is not even open yet, but Ineke will sign me up as soon as it does. Thank you again, Ineke!

And last but not least, the doorbell rang yesterday afternoon and parcel postie handed me a parcel which came from over the pond, from Michele:

Do you think Michele guessed that I like pink? ;o) She blames me for the fact that she is now also looking at pink fabrics. Anything to enable, Michele...

And here is a detail of the very sweet snowman Michele stitched for me. Isn't he cute?

Thank you again, Michele!

Other presents included a very healthy stitching and painting budget from my DH, a 24" quilting ruler from my parents and more budgets from other members of my family.


Today it feels like my birthday all over again, because postie has brought THREE BOM patterns (and for those eagerly waiting: yes, the In My Garden block 1 came too!) and a parcel with more fabrics for said pattern.

At the moment I'm working on block 2 of Night Before Christmas by Bunny Hill Designs. The first stocking of three is finished, but I'm afraid I might have to desert it in favour of In My Garden.
