Return of the Gimme Pig

As my dear friend Michelle would say - I have been a Gimme Pig today.  It's my birthday and as I shamelessly squeal - I love presents.
Here's the gorgeous gifts I opened from bloggy friends today.
Sisabelle sent gorgeous fat quarters, thread and an adorable bookmark.  Thank you so much.
From Cheryll, lovely fabric, a handmade card to send to someone else, and some of her wonderful quilt labels.  Thank you so much.
Such a beautiful needle-case card and fabric arrived from Pat.  Thank you so much.
The soap accompanying the beautiful fabric from Simone smells delightful.  Thank you so much.

Shez really spoiled me with two delightful parcels.  Gorgeous fabrics, a zippered purse and one of her lovely towels.  Thank you so much.
This absolutely gorgeous fabric is from Lyn.  I love it.  Thank you so much.
Maria chose this gorgeous fabric with an olde worlde feel and it just so me.  Thank you so much.

Barb sent such a gorgeous bundle of red deliciousness.  Divine fabric, a thread catcher, needle book and two delightful Santas.  Thank you so much.

I started the day with breakfast in bed, then Ferguson Plarre treats for lunch.  John had to work today and started at 1.30 so I indulged myself with a couple of vampire movies and a stitching afternoon.  I baked myself a batch of Jenny's buttermilk scones and Jack and I enjoyed a devonshire tea.  John has Tuesday off so my birthday celebrations will continue with a day trip to Geelong and a visit to one of my very favourite patchwork shops - A Little Different, in Packington Street and to lunch on the foreshore.  Lucky me.



Some paper craft today and isn't it gorgeous.  Visit Creative Breathing for this charming project.  Here's the LINK.
