Look at my pile of loot! I got this yesterday at my Birthday Block quilting group. We meet once a month for a lovely lunch and the "birthday girl" gets a requested block from each member, OR some fabric of her choice. I asked for orange and blue fabric for a quilt I have in progress. I got so much fabric that I'll be making a couple of more orange and blue quilts, I know! Great friends!
Now my birthday is not actually for another month - just so you know.... but, I was happy to celebrate it early. My birthday cake was a yummy Hummingbird Cake - oh, so good!
I leave tomorrow for the lake to host a big group of girls: a bride and her bridesmaids (one of whom is Daughter 2, who is flying home from Minnesota for the weekend). Hubby and dogs have been banned - we're making it girls only. The hair and makeup will be flying while they all get ready for the wedding Saturday. Yes, I'll take some hexies along!
I managed to fit in a hair appointment (much needed!) today. I'll be ready for Chicago next week - can't wait!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
