Sunday Stash - Birthday Edition!

It's my birthday today! Yay! :-)
38 years old :-( everyone is ribbing me about getting closer to 40!!!

I had money and vouchers to spend so off I went shopping and sod's law there wasn't anything I liked so I only came home with a £2 pair of flip flops and this fab tea towel (100% cotton of course!)


But of course The Eternal Maker isn't open on Sunday's otherwise I would have spent the lot!



My birthday loot includes;
Not 1 but 2 irons! Finally an iron with an auto shut off - I have left my iron on soooo many times! And a gorgeous antique iron and stand.  A years subscription to British Patchwork & Quilting Magazine, a set of gorgeous owl notebooks, a bamboo pointer & creaser, a Seams Right acrylic template and some handy floss bobbins & ring and other assorted goodies as pictured!

What a lucky girl I am! And I still have money burning a hole in my pocket too!

My stash this week comes in the form of some donated vintage duvet covers, my favourite is the alphabet one but come on people, who doesn't love Care Bears!



And some fabulous flannel sheets, vintage pillow cases and over a metre of Laura Ashley fabric, all from the Car Boot Sale for about £3!!




I seriously don't have room for this lot!  I might donate the animal hospital duvet cover to the charity shop and sell the Care Bear cover, they're coming back again you know - my next door neighbour who is 5 years old told me so!

Linking up with Sunday Stash being hosted by Kristy @ Quiet Play this week.  If you are a UK quilt blogger and would like to take part in The UK Fabric Stashers Blog Hop in September please take a look here and get in touch with me!



I've just realised that I forgot to do the weekly update on the Something Old Something New Challenge! I'll post that tomorrow - sorry!  You have until Midnight Friday 26 July GMT London to enter your project and be eligible to win the Vintage Sheet prize donated by Vintage Sheet Variety Shop.

Wishes for a very Happy Birthday to you! My littles are too old for Care Bears, but yes I think they are becoming popular again.

Happy Birthday! And i'm doubly pleased as I'm not 38 until next March, woohoo, but seriously, that 40 does seem to be getting a little too close for comfort! Enjoy your trip to the Eternal Maker next time it's open and you're free :o)
