and the birthday beat goes on...

 If this is what its like to turn forty I cant wait to be fifty!!
My celebrations are at an end (for now)
I've been away and seen wonderful things...
but first I must share with you the lovely gifts from 
my dear friend Mary
I often feel like Im skirting round the edge of the quilting community
Mary has a way of reeling me in when I'm about to slip away.
 Any way here are just some of the treats she sent me...
needless to say those sweets did not last long!!
 turquoise pompom
 diagonal stripe binding
 Perfect in everyway!!
Thank you Mary

  4. Dear child, don't slip away you would be so missed! I enjoy your gentle projects as a contrast to all that busyness out there. There are many lurkers like me out there, may be we should express ourselves more often to let you know we do appreciate your blog and quilts and chat. Please stay and talk a little while longer.

  5. Happy birthday from one July birthday celebrater to another! Take care, Pam
