Some Birthday Goodies

This month I celebrated a birthday, here are a few goodies I received..........

Large Candle Mat made special for me with chickens.

Inside this little bag are all the "ingredients" to make a Gee's Bend quilt, something I've been wanting to make for a while now.

Here's a photo of the fabrics.

I also received some other wonderful treats, some fat quarters of fabric, a kit to make some potholders.  Thank you to my wonderful friends for the above mentioned gifts, you know who you are and I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. 

Earlier this spring I found an ad on craigslist for a quilt kit, it was for Tonga Nature by Wing and A Prayer, the price $75, (it's a 96x106 quilt), it is certainly a great deal as this kit would sell for over $200.  I messaged the woman and after speaking with her we picked a day to meet and now I have this kit waiting patiently for it's turn.........

All the fabrics to make the quilt top.

Off to work on more of my Farmer's wife blocks, read, or maybe take a little nap!
