My Birthday....

Tuesday was my birthday.... A great day---a great week.  I've said before... In our house we have birth festivals lasting an entire week, not just a birth day.  This a a birthday card from a friend, pretty appropriate and all with the covered porch--- a friend since I was in the fourth grade.  Phones calls, Letters and emails have filled the week. Birthdays are a really big deal where I work now, lots of fun.  My birthday money didn't burn a hole in my pocket, I used it to purchase backing material for My Garden Quilt.  I also got free fat quarters for my birthday.

The Spring quilt is progressing--- don't give up on it, more pictures to come.

Here's the view from the porch of the snow as it fell last Saturday.  A reminder that winter is still trying to hang on.  Today It got up to 57--- in defiance, I refused to wear a jacket. On the docket for this weekend, Friends over for dinner and a ton of quilting....

Gratitudes

Glad you had such a good birthday - just goes to show you are well loved! I can't believe you still have snow. It's in the lower eighties here.

Happy belated Birthday for Tuesday 15, Melanie... I hope the weather is being kinder to you this week. We are having impossibly hot weather here and expect another storm again tonight.

Glad to see you had a happy Birth Week! I like that idea. Jealous of the Ipad. We have snow falling right now. supposed to get 3-6 inches overnight.

Winter is a terrible houseguest, it doesn't know when to LEAVE!!

Happy Belated Bday!
