An early Birthday....

 At least, that is how is seems :)

Yesterday, family and I went into Chico for some running around: the library and food shopping mostly. Well dh drove up to the quilt store and told me to go spend some money, how could I refuse?! LOL, he's such a sweety. This is the second time in a row he has done this, that BOTH times the quilt store was having an awesome sale. Yesterday's sale was 40-50% off the whole store!

I came home with these pretties. A few Kaufman and a few Joanna Figtree.

And then today, the mailman  called and said he had a couple of packages for me :)

The first one was from my Dear friend Pat. Some lovely Sunkissed, a few from Joel Dewberry (I think) and ...ummm...I am REALLY bad at remembering names and such...unless I've been drooling over certain fabric for awhile, I just can't remember...anyways..

The are all SO LOVELY. Thank you so much Pat :)

The second package came from my Dear Grandma, the same one I made a handbag for in this post. Sadly, Grandma says she can't do quilting anymore (she is in her late 80s) and so she asked if I wanted some of her fabric. This is a fun box of stuff! Some older, some newer, all lovely.

Thank you Grandma, I love you.

 And my birthday is still a few weeks away ;)

I hope you are having a lovely day too.

*On a side note. I was changing/adding a few things to a few of my tutorials yesterday. And one decided to move it's self up to the front of the line, LOL. So that's why I had a re-post of a tute yesterday. I'll just leave it alone, it's not harming anything there :)

Thanks for stopping by, Dorian
