It's not my birthday....

It's not my birthday..... but it sure feels like it is!
Today the mailwoman delivered a nice brown envelope on my doormat. In it was this beautiful pattern. I won this wedding star pattern at a drawing held at Patti's blog. Isn't she lovely...I'm so happy, thanks!


The second gift I received today is one my mother made for me. She knitted this so colourful scarf. I love it! Thanks mom!

And for all the Quilt bloggers among us... see this post. She recently start blogging and it gave her so much inspiration, she just can't stop!
Have a very nice weekend everyone!

Wow that certainly is a happy mail day - two soft squishies in the mail. The pattern looks great - and a soft colorful scarf to keep you warm. Very sweet.

My very first record I bought had a song Happy Unbirthday, I think it was Mickey Mouse - so a very Happy Unbirthday to you.

I love your scarf...and even better...the photos of What's in the box? My boxes don't look near as interesting as yours do. I am just learning how to follow a knitting pattern....but all of my South African friends are prolific knitters...scarves,fingerless gloves..socks and jerseys. They are amazing ladies. I am so enjoying learning from the. Thanks for sharing you knitting and quilting photos. Colleen
