Birthday Bash

Today, I'm 37 years old...it seems an old age but I don't feel 37 inside. (Sometimes I feel nearer 40 lolol)   I've been spoilt rotten today, My bro bought me  Shape workshop for quilters from the Fat Quarterly gang...
I sat in bed this morning, with a bucks fizz in my hand and flicked through, there are some lovely blocks in there, scrummy quilts and good tips.

My DH bought me a year's subscription to Fat Quarterly, (see he had listened to me and at least he knows where I'm going to be in June) and the naughty naughty man , gave me $150 gift certificate to Fat Quarter shop  I was really annoyed as the retreat was supposed to be my birthday present. Eventually, I accepted it with good grace and surfed their site all day :) there's a sale starting on Monday so i'm going to wait... any ideas what I should buy ???
My parents bought me a digital photo frame so I can see all my lovely photo's.

The kids got me my sizzix alphabet die, isn't it nice, all about 1inch so easy applique :)

After a rather boozy lunch at the local restaurant, I proceeded to cut with my new alphabet die and got busy doing my FQ name tag, here's the finished article, it was square before I did the binding... oh and I must just say that I used Pip, because my friends tend to call me Pip and Pippa is a very very naughty word in Italy, Greece and most of the Baltic states, so I didn't want to embarrass myself.

it sorta slipped the coding while I was sewing, I blame the alcohol :)

Please don't shout in the morning, I might have a sore head
