I'm detecting a theme.....

My birthday was about 2 weeks ago and I am truly blessed to have wonderful friends who showered me with goodies, but I am detecting a theme and it tickles me no end!

First there is this card.....


It is huge! When I first saw it in the envelope I thought it was a record album. You remember record albums, don't you? Yep, I know you do! Anyway I loved everything about it... it is yellow, it has a chicken and it has polka dots- a trifecta of wonderfulness! Then you open it up and.....



it plays the Chicken Dance song! OMG!! I live in an area with a strong German heritage and around here every weekend in September and October there is an Oktoberfest celebration somewhere and I don't think I've ever been to a wedding around here when this song isn't played. You can't help but smile when you hear it.
And there were presents too.....



This yellow polka dot chicken fabric is from Linda. I love it and can't believe I didn't have it in my stash. I'm thinking I'll make a mesh tote bag with this. And the yarn is from Cathy and Stephie. It is gorgeous! Its called Summer Sunset and has tones of yellow, peach and beige and it is a mix of alpaca,silk and cashmere- soooo soft. I'm thinking this should be a little shawl or scarf. And then there is this gift from Laurey.....



isn't he adorable? Another cute dotted chicken to add to my collection. He's sitting here on my Charming Chatter quilt. When you touch him he bobs up and down, his legs are on a spring. The furniture he is sitting on has a big honking computer printer on the other end and every time you print something out he bobs -- cute cute cute!

So I am one lucky lucky woman to have such great friends who find the perfect presents. Thank you Thank you Thank you!! Oh and ALL of these wonderful gifts were packaged in polka dot bags!!! I love it!

Happy stitching....
