I have to show you what I got!!

I just wanted to share with you the things I received for my 40th. My gorgeous hubby and son gave me The Quilted Crow's finishing kit for the Quilt Aid quilt "Bluebird of Hope" (It arrived today!) It was wrapped so beautifully I didn't want to open it!
They also gave me a new mobile phone, so no more battery going flat 5 minutes after it's been recharged!
My Mum and sister gave me this fabulous cutting mat that rotates 360 degrees, how great is that!

They've also bought me one of the Quilt Aid blocks but it's still in transit.

My workmate and good friend Ange gave me a beaut frame from Creative Memories (those are my feet in the middle!)

My long time friend Valerie (no blog) sent me some beautiful fabrics and scrapbooking embellishments. My classmate Helen ( hee! hee! we're doing a photoshop class together) gave me a set of her patterns for "Twas a night before Xmas" and wait for it... a jelly roll called "Authentic", it is even more scrummy in real life.and another surprise came in today's mail from my Robyn, how gorgeous is this pear! I love It!

I've never felt so spoilt in my whole life! It's a lovely feeling, thank-you everyone for making turning 40 so much fun!

I read another blogger had problems with losing her blog list. I'll have to see if she resolved it.
