Well it's finally happened!
When I woke up this morning, I'm glad to say I hadn't grown an extra nose, my hair hadn't fallen out and my teeth were all there - phew!
Then this is what I came downstairs to ..............
I had told the girls the only thing they were allowed to buy me was a fat quarter or two of fabrics. So daddy took them to our LQS and this is what they choose.
The cow print is so fun and daring, just like middle daughter who choose it!
And of course, no birthday for me is complete without some of these ...............
............and some of this ..............
I'm being taken out to lunch by 2 friends today - a surprise venue and I've been told the dress code is smart casual - hmmmmm!
The main celebrations will be on Sunday, a double birthday party (my youngest is 10 on Sunday) at my sister's house. No doubt there will be more pics to bore you with.
And to finish off this 40th weekend hubby & I are spending the day in Londonderry, where I fully intend to buy more fabric in a cute wee shop up there called Quilt Cottage Studio (I'll definitely take pics of my purchases!).
So for all of you celebrating birthdays along with me this weekend, a very happy birthday to us all!
P.s. My very special quilty friend, Sarah, is poorly in hospital at the moment. Just want to say a big thank you to her for organising the gorgeous flowers, and I miss her and wish her back to complete, pain free health very soon. Love you! Jxo
