Happy Birthday to ME

 Before I share my Birthday prizes I wanted to post a photo of this weeks blog candy winners gift. Rhonda you are the winner of this homemade Halloween table runner!!! Rhonda send me your address so I can get your gift in the mail.
 Karsyn's BD spa wraps were completed before I could move on to my special for me gift. Sew happy to have one more thing marked off the To Do list done
 Hubby ask what I wanted for my BD this year......Want to guess what it is?
 This handsome electric pressure cooker that was on a heck of a good sale from Williams Sonoma. Regular price $189.00, sale price $99.00. I can't wait to play around with this new tool. I stink at remembering to cook beans ahead of time for recipes thus I grab a can and go. Maybe I will do better with cooking dry beans once I master this thing.
 Yesterday was D Day to finish my for me BD gift. Remember the "Cake Walk blocks" I have been working on over the past month? Well that very special quilt was being created for ME. I was short 3 blocks when I sat down yesterday morning determined to at least get the top completed. I still need to go back and work on embellishing a block or two but I wanted to move on to the borders.
 I added 5 borders! I couldn't decide on just one or two, or even three so I went for broke and added them all
I am going to send this quilt out to a free arm quilter. After adding all the borders it's just too darn big for me to FMQ on my little machine. Once it's back from the quilter I am going to cut the final border into scallops then bind it in the blue gigham. I just might let this be Nanny's traveling quilt, the Birthday boy or girl each month can have a turn with it.

It has been a FULL week and it's only Wednesday, UGH I still need to finish cleaning up dinner dishes from my family BD meal tonight as our big girls and I don't have the same level of what we consider a tidy kitchen. Sweeping and mopping will have to wait until tomorrow as I am beat.

This Birthday Girl is on her way for a good nights sleep. Congrats again Rhonda!!

  6. That is going to be a fabulous quilt and a very original design! I don't blame you keeping it for yourself. A very happy birthday for yesterday I hope you were spoilt rotten!!! I totally understand when you comment your opinion of a clean kitchen does not coincide with your girls views. I have the same argument with my daughter and she says I am just too fussy!!!
    keep well

    Amanda :-)
