You've not passed out have you? No, Oh good!
This last week or so has seen two birthday's within the ladies of the Kitchen Guild and one of those was mine = yippee!!
So last Thursday we had a little meet up at Katy's house for coffee, cake and presents of course. Not all members were present but we had a majority attendance with Lauli, Trudi, Mandy, Katy & Myself and a jolly good time was had.
Naturally I had to make a birthday gift for Trudi and as she's been helping me with the Wonky Star QAL for Simply Solids I felt that Wonky Stars would be more than fitting.
After a quick hunt online I found this awesome tutorial for a Wonky Star Block and a quick dig in my scraps and a few hours later I ended up with this:
How Cute is that teeny tiny star?? I used Moda Cross Weave in grey for the background and the pillow is bound in Sketch Denim.
For the back of the pillow I used more of the cross weave and a sewing themed fabric I received in a swap ages ago.
You are not going to believe the haul of awesome I received as pressies!!! Ready?
|Amazing pillow from Lynne. I've been eyeing this one up for ages!!|
|Fab pouch & notebook from Lauli featuring one of my fave Liberty prints ever!|
|Gorgeous pouch & coin purse from Mandy = perfect!|
|Fab book & essential matching tea mug from Katy|
|Mini size weekender bag from Trudi!!|
All in all I've had a perfect birthday weekend spent with great friends, giving and receiving great presents, a fab day shopping with my hubs and a great night out last night with some of my bestest friends.
Watch out for another post soon as lots to tell you this week.....
