Imagine 10 quilty/crafty women from all across Canada, making each other birthday gifts and showering everyone with happy mail in the month of her birth (or month after in my case as there are 2 Aprils). How amazing does this sound?! Too good to be true?! Nope! This club exists!!! It’s called the #canuckbdayclub and it is a very active, Instagram based birthday swap!
I tested this pattern from Karie and TwoKwikQuilters (awesome pattern! Super easy to follow!) and chose these colours especially for W based on some IG and Pinterest sleuthing. I included some other goodies for her to enjoy – silk bamboo yarn, charms, buttons, tea, and a cross-stitched bookmark (or ultra-mini mini to hang up at the office).
I wrapped it all up with brown paper and twine and sealed it in a Canada Post envelope…. Then realized that the card didn’t make it into the package!!
Not to worry though! My husband proudly affixed a Saskatchewan Roughriders stamp into the envelope and happily sent it on it’s way to Edmonton Eskimo country…. And he got way too big of a kick out of doing that!
I’m so happy that my new friend enjoyed her gift so much!!
Happy Birthday W!!
