My Faves ~ July 2015
|and Great Looking! lol|
We did it together...
|Pedicures... she went back for a mani before leaving too! lol|
|A pic I worked on as a sweet memory of her short beach time this trip|
Birthday Memories...Yep, I am a firecracker! Born on the 4th of July :) So we celebrated and had dessert..
|Such a yummy dessert we got for our birthday celebration at a local restaurant :)|
|It didn't last long.. there were 4 of us celebrating birthdays in July! lol|
|My dd made me red velvet brownies too! Yummm :)|
My honey really spoiled me this year though!
|I got my fave chocolates.. in mini size!!|
And this pattern on the left is a BOM style pattern of a quilt I want to make.. I will share more on that later... and the fat quarter bundle on the right is the fabric to make it with that I had already picked out!!!!
I can't believe how generous he has been to me for a birthday too!
Now what to do for him!!??? His birthday is coming on the 20th
I also got a host of cards and other gifts... Connie had given me a wall hanging to quilt, and the matching t-shirts to wear during her visit! My favorite card was from my grandmother who is 96 years young and never forgets my birthday or to send me a card on my day :) That means sooo much!
I certainly feel loved this year for sure on my special day. Do you enjoy your special day each year??
Quilting Accomplishments...I am so excited about this part of my week I am linking with Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday on Sunday morning... that is my fave spot to read on Sunday's and my fave thing to do!!! lol Today she shows her hand embroidery and talks about how good closure on a project feels!
So come on now and check out how well my week has gone...
|Got this quilt layered and pin basted ready for hand quilting...|
|Close up of the center block :)|
My friend Wendy suggested something like this and I LOVE this more interpretive quilting idea...
And in the meantime I have been working on my Bulls Eye wall hanging...
And finally choosing which of those luscious fabrics from the fat quarter bundle and which from my own stash to put together for the pattern I received for my birthday...
So that is what is up with me... hope you enjoyed the ride today!
Thanks for visiting :)
