Two CQ's (CQTeers and CQOnline)...and...birthdays

Birthday presents!
Lucky me to be the recipient of all the treasures shown above! Today was our CQTeer meeting and I got some pretty kewl prezzies from my friends! Irene knows I like cats, so she went with a cat theme - the wonderful pieced cat (which I intend to frame) and a cute little cat atc/birthday card, both of which came wrapped in the fun piece of cat fabric. Kym made me a pair of beeswax candles, the knitted poppy, and a wonderful fabric basket - along with some cute paper clips. Thank you Kym and Irene! I'm a pretty lucky girl.

ATC Swap from the CQTeers
Our theme this month was outer space. The top two are by Irene...extreme outer space. Lots of texture! Kym made the middle two, with a cartoon character outer space theme. The one I made commemorated the anniversary of man walking on the moon, which also happened this week (July 20, 1969).

Below is what came in the mail today from Mary Corbet....just feast your eyes on this haul of wonderful fibery goodness!! I was an extremely lucky winner to receive some of Mary's generosity and now I can't wait to play with my new goodies. Thank you SO much Mary!!
Finally, the new issue of CQMagOnline is up for your reading pleasure. I haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but I know that it will be great!

Looks like you had a nice birthday with the goodies I see. Happy birthday and I'm glad the soap arrived just in time, even though I didn't know it was your birthday.LOL

Now, when you consider my birthday is July 23rd, I'm now wondering which day is yours. Happy birthday and perhaps we should consider sharing the celebrations.
