Happy Birthday to me!

It was my birthday a week ago. My son celebrated this by announcing to the whole coffee shop we go to every Tuesday morning for a coffee and a milkshake that I was 37! Just what I wanted everyone in there to know. So having taken a week to get over the public humiliation, I decided it wasn't so bad and have now announced it to the WWW!

At the beginning of the year, the girls over at EB started a birthday swap. Basically what happens is that I send everyone on the list a FQ for their birthday and in return, on my birthday I got showered with quilty goodness. When the idea of the swap was first floated, I was in the middle of packing and moving interstate so I decided not to join. Once I moved, I regretted my decision and asked if I could join, promising to send off FQ's to the two members whose birthdays had already happened. Being the special bunch of ladies they are, they said yes so I got to join the fun! You had to nominate the style of fabric you wanted to receive: retro, a colour, prints, whatever took your fancy. I couldn't come up with anything so I asked everyone to send me one of what they had asked for. It has resulted in a lovely mixed bag of fabrics. Due to some technical difficulties (ie, husbands, conferences etc!) I'm still waiting on a few. Not that this worries me, just stretches out my birthday! So here is what I have recieved so far.1. lily, retro, 2. xena, retro, 3. joy, blue/teal, 4. emma3, B&W, 5. emma2 B&W, 6. emma B&W, 7. cylie, retro, 8. helen3, pinks, 9. helen2, pinks, 10. helen, pinks, 11. leah, brights, 12. AJ, bright, yellow and orange, 13. natalie, cute prints, retro, 14. Not available, 15. Not available, 16. cass, retro

The descriptions underneath tell you who sent me what and they style they asked for.

Helen and Emma were very naughty and sent me 3, a couple of others (and I'm sorry I can't remember who becuase I forgot to write it down!) also sent me magazines. All together you made my birthday a lovely occasion. I haven't had that many presents to open in a long time. Thank you!
