Disapointment and a Birthday Angel

For the last few years I have been a member of Cherylls Birthday fat 1/4 swap
This swap required us to send a fat 1/4 to members in a colour of their choice on their birthday
A bit of fun
We were also required to send a special gift to one special person
Not to hard really
I never received my special gift in the 2015 swap
I was so disappointed
I had  a message from my special person to say my gift would be late Life gets in the way sometimes We all appreciate that
Any way my gift never ever did come
Last Wednesday when I came home from hospital after my knee surgery there was a parcel waiting for me
On opening I found this draw string bag I love it and the thought fullness of my Birthday angel who decided to make up for my special person
Made my day
Thankyou my Birthday Angel and a BIG thankyou to the lovely Cheryll
Restored my faith in swaps
You are a beautiful person Cheryll and  there should not have been a need for my Birthday angel to step in

Last FNWF for 2016 and a little visitor

Over the years we seem to have had a little turtle pass through every year
 Not sure if it is the same one
Thunder was not impressed with our visitor

I had a whole day sewing when I joined Cheryll and lots of friends for our last FNWF for the year
Where has the time gone?
Iam sure it was just Christmas yesterday
A pack of charm squares, a few spare hours and I came up with this lap quilt
My last present completed
I have to be organized this year as my knee surgery is on Monday
Hoping it will be as successful as my last one, though now I have a painful varicose vein in that leg
Cannot take  a trick
