Birthday Celebrations

I have just got in the door after celebrating a special Birthday! A 7 year old's Birthday actually! Who is 7??? It is actually Calico Crossroads 7th birthday! How time flies! Pauline celebrated by holding a Quilt Expo in the hall across the road from her shop, showcasing the fine work of the Tamar Valley quilters, from both the East and West Tamar Valley region and the work, OUTSTANDING! There really is some talented quilters out there!

Lynette Anderson 'Christmas Wishes' (don't you just love this! Love the fabrics too..... which reminds me, I have a kit to make up for Xmas in this range! Looks like next Xmas!):

Girls Day out in Celebrate Spring fabrics..... looked very pretty in this range I must say!

Remember the Homespun BOM Life is a Celebration..... looks great in these fabrics!!

And, the shop had 20% store wide! So, we pottered around, had a coffee and cake (and a homemade bickie too!) and loaded up! Roseanne spotted this:

Cute hey!? I had been looking for a nice sewing box for some time, and thought I just had to have it...... But of course Roseanne wanted it too (she did spot it after all!)! I tried to con her into getting the green one, but no, she HAD to have THAT one! Geesh! So now we have the same! The joys of similar taste lol!

Happy Birthday 7th Calico Crossroads! I hope there are many MANY more!

x Sarah
