Canuck Birthday Club

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!

Now that my new friend in Edmonton has received her gift, I can share it with you all here. IMG_9286.JPG

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!!

  2. Sheila, I left a comment on here a long time ago, but I just realized it didn’t stick! Thanks for your awesome birthday package…everything is so perfect. The mini is especially amazing…thanks!

  3. I’ve looked at lots of posts and love your colours and style. The birthday club sounds like a fun thing to do, and don’t worry about hanging out with the old ladies–we’re lots of fun!

  4. The birthday club looks like a fun group- I went back in your blog and read about your husband’s quilt- it is a terrific quilt- love the graphic design and the colors. I am sure he loved it too.
    Regards from Edmonton,
