Fat 1/4 birthday club.........

Hey blogland.......how is everyone today................
thanks for all your suggestions on crap day fixes..........amazing how good life is after a good night sleep.........but my naughty treats were good too.........
&&&
thanks also for my birthday wishes............I know i am a little late with this post but hey life happens..........
OMG my birthday cake...........wished I had taken a side profile...........
double story carmel mud cake with caramelised nuts and popcorn on top..........
it looked AMAZING...........and was so yummy............
&&&
this year I have been part of a fat 1/4 birthday club.........
lots of beautiful fat 1/4s' and a main present from one of the girls............
I had numerous choices as to style so mine are very varied..........
Sharon @ Lillabelle Lane
lovely civil wars........... 
Yvonne @ Yvonne W Designs
thinking of fussy cutting from this print..........
this fat 1/4 matches perfectly with one from Peg below...........
Illene @ Ret Dairy Queen
Some Bonnie and Camille....the little heart smells so devine..........
lots of bits from Peg..........that girl can't help herself.........but all very much appreciated...........
except the chocolate got demolished in the PJ day I had yesterday.........
Claire @ Claire-Bear Quilts
some more Bonnie and Camille......they go well together.........
Simone knows I love EPP........a lovely bright fabric and maybe that chocolate is on the hit list today.........maybe it would help if I didn't eat the whole bar in one day like yesterday.........
When I was in Brisbane last month Michelle actually gave me my parcel then..........
and told me "don't get to excited about the parcel it's not much"
well she is a big liar............OMG
Above are the extra bits she added in............
below are the goodies she made for me..........
about a 5 inch hexie this stitching pouch is beautiful...........Michelle designed and stitched the stitchery just for me..........it is so me...........I love it.........
and inside she has a few pockets and some thread...........
As if this wasn't enough there was more...........
This is a 3in hexie.....included a needle pad and some needles and scizzors with a little hexie scizzor fob on them.........and of course blue scizzors........
I sorted out some projects yesterday as everything was so mixed up I could not work...........so now they are off in various projects...........
thanks to all the girls in the Fat 1/4 Birthday Club...........
just one more parcel to arrive..........hope it isn't lost..........
and thanks to Dory for organising us........
Jenny @ Bird on the Border gave me this little parcel of cuteness............already used the notepad and need to think of something special for the christmas fabric.............
Finally my Mum gave me some money so I got Jenny Kingwell's new book..........
I have been eyeing it off............
OK must go...........
Catch you later.........
