Goodies in the Mail

Every October, DH struggles with birthday gift ideas for me. This year, I asked if it was okay if I ordered a few 'things' off the web...he was very happy to let me choose my gifts and they have arrived! A little early (my birthday is the 17th) but that's more than okay with me! *VBG*

Here is what has arrived at the house:
From Cozy Quilts, two pattern books (Quick Cozy Couch Quilts and The Giving Quilt) and their striped pieced fish pattern, 1 Fish, 2 Fish. I am seriously considering attempting 'some sort of' fish quilt...

...and Bonnie Hunter's First Book! I ordered mine from her publisher, The Pickle Dish Store. If you would like a signed copy, you would need to order from Bonnie directly but since I 'don't do Paypal', I decided to order from the publisher. Plus, Bonnie is traveling to the greater Oconomowoc area in the beginning of November for a series of lectures and workshops (info here)! So I'll have her sign my copy when she is here! How cool is that?! I also order some quilt-y note cards...just because...really no good reason other than the note cards were an impulse buy. :)

Now the question is whether or not to wrap my gifts?!
