I had a birthday this week! Turned 49! And I got spoiled by my family and friends! lol I'm not complaining though, I'm feeling very blessed!
It started Thursday with an evening out with my quilt girls at Pizza Delight. What beautiful quilting gifts they gave me, oh my! And what a time we had, actually a table nearby made a comment about how many drinks we had had, but we were only drinking water!!!! And then the next day, a cake at work, flowers delivered from a past co-worker, lunch with my mom and aunt. Then chinese buffet with my hubby and kids later. All in all, it was lovely!
Like I said, beautiful gifts. Thought you'd enjoy seeing all of the quilty things and apparently there are more to come. Love it!
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
