Thoroughly Spoilt

This past week I've been thoroughly spoilt!!

I was given "Style Stitches" by Amy Butler from my wonderful parents for my birthday. I can't wait to make some of the bags ...

.My Nana gave me a bit of money which I put towards this Bliss layer cake .....

One of my sisters Rebecca sent me this cute pink journal - the leather is so soft and aren't those little black dress cards so adorable ....

My husband suffered a trip to a quilting shop with me so I could pick up some of these Kaffe Fassett prints ......

Don't they look good with my other Kaffe prints?

I find quilts only made from Kaffe prints can sometimes be a bit too overwhelming for me, but for this quilt I am planning on there being a fair amount of neutral fabric too. I was thinking maybe this quilt pattern by Material Obsession - still deciding....

I also got some makeup from another sister Kelly and some chocolate and I'm so excited that my husband has organised for me to take a trip to Sydney in a few weeks to visit 3 of my sisters and to do some quilting with Kate ... YAY!!

I told you, thoroughly spoilt and very blessed!!


  1. So glad you were spoilt for your birthday. You deserve it. I can't wait for you to come and stay!! And I love love love that quilt by Material Obsession! I think its my favourite, along side Fractured.

  2. Great presents! Love Bliss and Kaffe, very good choices. I am hoarding my Kaffe still... I ordered the Amy book from Amazon but they say they cannot deliver till January.... sigh... oh well... that'll be just in time for my birthday then! :-)

  3. You got great stuff! I really love your fabric choices!

  4. Yes you were spoilt weren't you! I would love that book. Her bags are gorgeous and I find her patterns easy to follow. I think you've chosen the perfect pattern for your Kaffe Fassett prints. It should really make those prints stand out. Happy Birthday!
