Beautiful Birthday Gifts

I was very spoilt by Sylvia for my birthday with this beautiful little needle case from a design by Anni Downs .....


Anything that combines my favourite Liberty fabrics and linen is always going to be a hit and I just love the simplicity of this design .....   the inside is just beautiful too and the Liberty binding is gorgeous !



She also made a pack of some lovely fabrics together with Natalie Bird's new stitchery designs on a linen panel .... I will be very busy stitching these beautiful pieces .....



Also in the mail in the past week was the new Natalie Bird Block of the Month called Willowbrook Market Garden .... as you may have seen in a previous post, Natalie had the original quilt on display at the Sydney Quilt Show and it was lovely ..... I always love a design that incorporates embroidery and patchwork together so I am looking forward to making a start on this quilt too ....




The lovely fabrics and bits and pieces in the Block of the Month kit which I have purchased through Sarah at Patchwork Plus in Tasmania ..... Sarah also offers a beautiful quilting service too if you are interested !!



And our Wednesday crafty days with the boys continued yesterday .... they are really into painting and creating at the moment and the concentration on their faces was amazing ....



Such special days .... but never enough time to fit everything into our days .... off to Sydney again today for some special birthday celebrations for my niece who is turning 30, and our gorgeous Malia who is having her 1st birthday celebrations !!
