A birthday for Hubz......

I seem to be doing a lot of posts this week... sorry... catching up.....

Hubz has a birthday at the end of March ..... I forgot it in the morning when he went to work 

(loud applause for wife of the year... thank you... thank you)

....... so I fixed up his favourite chair with a parcel....


... and even found a special tin of chocolates to go with it...
(instructions that tin is not to be thrown away)


... finally he has his very own quilt ......


... and he has made all the right comments and sighs and wrapped it around him even in the hot weather.....


... of course a very soppy label went with it.....


... let's hope he stops whinging about not having a quilt when everybody else does!!!!!!!!!

I have forgotten where I got to with my pretty birdies stitcheries each month... but I am up to date

this is March (even if Easter is in April this year)


..... and this is April .... Anzac Day


they are really cute pictures... I am loving this series

Hello Fiona,

Be-lated Happy Birthday to your hubby. That quilt you made is very manly,just perfect for him to have over his lap whilst watching man things on tv and having a home brew.
Gotta love that ANZAC stitchery.

Happy days.
Bev.

At least you remembered before the day was out - gosh, you were quick to whip up a quilt for him in just a few hours!!! Belated birthday wishes to your Hubz. I love your little stitcheries - they look very -this side of the hemisphere- relevant :-)
Oh, and your Stitch In looks like it was awesome!

Lovely quilt, happy belated birthday to Hubz! Cute little blue birds too, just imagine how much more Australian they would be if they were kookaburras?

I bet he was disappointed he missed out on the airplane one! Gorgeous quilt you made for you to admire while it keeps your loved one warm.
Enjoy the pretty stitching.

Susan said...

Happy birthday to your hubby, I'm sure he will be very happy to have a new quilt when winter rolls around. You should definitely get that tin back when it's empty (if not before!)

Susan said...

Happy Birthday Hubz. Lovely quilt for him - someday it will cool down enough to use it! Sometime you just have to buy the tin - regardless of what's in it.

Chrissie said...

I'm sure Hubz had a lovely day and great pressies too, love the quilt, lucky boy! and the tin is so sweet.

Karen said...

Great to see how wonderful his quilt looks. I am sure he had a good day. Especially now he has a quilt, too.

Cheryl said...

You make me chuckle Fiona. You certainly spoilt though and his quilt is beautiful

Heather said...

That's a very nice man quilt, he should love it.

Barb said...

Happy Birthday to the MAN!!!! Wonderful quilt!

Chris H said...

How lovely to make your hubby a quilt of his own. Now I have to sit here and wonder if Stew would like his own?
Nah, he never feels the cold!

marina said...

a belated birthday wish for hubz...
His quilt looks fantastic, you did such a wonderful job of the piecing and quilting. It's flattering that he complained that he didn't have one and wanted one.
love your little bluebird stitcheries..
