Best Birthday Ever!!

Friday I celebrated my 49th birthday. On Thursday I received these beautiful flowers from my friend Colleen's dad. He is the most thoughtful man and I want him to adopt me.Friday morning I logged in to read my email and I found a gift certificate in there from my good friends for the Fat Quarter Shop. How did they know I needed to order a backing from there? Well, I hurried and placed my order. FUN!! I went and had my nails done with my mom and then we met a friend for lunch at my favorite restaurant, Wood Ranch. After that I picked up my Godson from school and we spent the afternoon together. Great day with some of my favorite people!

Saturday morning my friends Nancy and Beth came over to spend the day sewing. Look what they brought me!!! They each made blocks and put it together. Isn't that the cutest mini??

I also received these great things. A great little book of mini's, a note pad and a scissor fob. The scissor fob came in a trick or treat bag Nancy made for us. Beth and I each got one.

Isn't this bag cute???? I don't know when she found the time to make these.

Look at all the goodies inside. What fun!!!

Nancy and Beth also brought along a birthday cake. Let me tell you, it was delicious. Chocolate with strawberry inside. YUMM! I had it for breakfast today with my coffee. I cleaned house in record speed with all the caffeine and sugar. I think I will go have another piece now.

Nancy and I made our mini quilt of the month. This month it was little red houses. These measure 5" square. Nancy's houses were perfect, I wish I had a picture. My houses were in a hurricane, then a tornado, followed by an earthquake. LOL!

While Nancy and I were sewing, Beth was cross-stitching. OMG! You should see her work. I am amazed at how beautiful it is. We are going to the cross stitch store in few weeks so I can pick out a project and learn how to do this. I am so excited.
Today I met my friend Joy at the quilt shop. Look what she made me! I knew she made a Margo bag yesterday but I had no idea it would be for me. She even conquered the elusive ZIPPER. YAY for Joy and YAY for me.
She even put in a special label. I will treasure this forever.
I honestly had one of the best birthday's ever. Thank you to my friends. I have only known Joy for a few years but I know she will be in my life forever. I have only known Beth and Nancy for a few months and I feel like we have been friends for much longer. Quilting has brought me many, many friends that I treasure. I can't imagine my life without all of you.

Have a fantastic week!

Yesterday I made three more "Cotton Club" blocks to finish off part one.
I also finished block 8 of "Kitchen Fairies".
I hope you all have a great week.
