Happy Birthday to me........

It was my birthday last week and look what came in the post for me....all the way from my BFF Diane in Canada, isn't this just so pretty, and just what I needed to bring some sunshine to France.  As usual I got lots of other little gifts too.... I am beginning to like having birthdays LOL.  Thank you so much Diane, I love it.

I know just where this is going to go.

Hubby bought me a new MP3 player, - I made a little case to keep it in.

I also got some Thornton's chocolates which I love....... oh come didn't expect to see a picture did you :o)

On the sewing front I have made a couple of birthday cards 

Very "Birthday" related post LOL, so if it's your birthday today...

Happy Birthday!!

..oh and Happy First Anniversary William and Kate!

Good Morning....

With the weather we are getting at the moment I am surprised our house hasn't floated away!!  I've never known so much rain in April before, it just isn't going away, it's a good thing I have some giveaway wins to cheer me up!!

In no particular order....

The first one is from Victoria at Bumble Beans I was her 1000 follower and she sent me this fabric.

I won this magazine from Monika at Needle and Thread Network

Actually this is more like a book than a magazine :-)

And last but definitely not least, today I have received my pressie from Melody and Michelle for my Tuesday Treasure.

How fabulous is that, so excited when it arrived as I thought it had got took quite a while to get here.  

Thank you all so much I really appreciate all my gifts. stop the hate mail again ...   ;-) .... this time I am showing you pictures of Lady, we had to search for her the other day, she decided she wanted to sleep in a different place so she squeezed through this gap

Bless.....she is very unsociable...

Yes, that's dust on the table..... ask me if I care....nope!

Hugs Linda and Lady

I've entered my Dresden runner into this weeks competition at Quilt Gallery.

I've called it Rays of Sunshine and it's near the bottom.  Go and vote for your favourite, would love you to vote for mine, but there are lots of pretty entries this week.

It's Tuesday Treasure time again...

I am linking with Melody again for Tuesday Treasures.

Today my treasure is a silver charm bracelet that belong to my Mum. 

My Dad use to buy one new charm for her on her birthday and Christmas and if they went out somewhere and she saw one she liked, he would buy it for her.

They are quite small so a little difficult to photograph

 London Bridge

These were my favourites when I was a little girl because they open....


Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard from the nursery rhyme, the door opens to show the cupboard is empty

Horse box with the horse inside 


and a couple getting married inside

I do wear it on occasions, but I am scared of losing one of them, I know my Mum lost a few, it's quite heavy and makes a noise when they all jangle together....which gets on your nerves after a while!!!!

So, there you have it, my Tuesday Treasure.

Free Fabric...

Ha bet that got you all reading my post  LOL.

Remember the free fabric I got from Art Gallery Fabrics - no? - well here is a reminder....

Nice isn't it...

Part of the deal for getting this fabric was we had to promise to make something with it and post on AGF's FB page, so here is what I made...

Noooo it's not a seat cover silly,.... it's a table runner LOL, I am going to use it for our patio table, love how it turned out - especially as the fabric was free!!

Hugs Linda xx
