Birthday Fat Quarter Swap...

When we went to Nundle to GDITC...we were all so keen to stay in touch with each other that the lovely Chookyblue organized a "Birthday Swap" amongst us....16 are participating and what we do is sent two fat quarters to the birthday girl....so this weekend is the first of the birthdays and can you believe it we have four birthdays in two days....on Saturday we have Kerry and June and on Sunday we have Dale and Helen.....these are my little gifts, I only had to send two in the post as Dale and June live in town....now how much fun is this going to be...receiving 32 fat quarters for your birthday..........enjoy your day....

  1. It is a really lovely idea - I love our swap Maree has organized and hope we do it every year with the special people we have got to know this year! Dale's from me is in the mail, so hope it reaches her by Monday at least!

  14. The war was cruel and people were forced to leave their native places. There was no doubt that they lost touch with each other. Many soldiers were killed but he tried his best to keep alive because he owed her a wedding and he promised to come back.[url=http://www.sunglassescool.com/ysl-sunglasses.html]yves saint laurent sunglasses[/url]
    Rolex watches are amazing. A gorgeous Rolex watch looks great and stylish. As we all know that Rolex watches are known for its strength and endurance, that's why Rolex watches have a good reputation for so many years. And also you will see the quality and precision reflected in each Rolex watch. So, Rolex is a name that thousands of people had dreamed of.
