You've not heard from me much lately, but I've been busy
working away on my Alaska Row by Row kits!
Here are a couple I managed to get done in between
There is something to be said about getting old...
At least when your having a landmark birthday.
I hit the age where I could retire if I choose.
That's not happening soon.
There is just too much fabrics to buy yet.
I'm going to need to stay working for a little while longer.
Or a lot, if my quiltin' habits don't change!
It all started last weekend when my girlfriend of 51 years,
(yep, 51 years), came up from Albuquerque.
She brought me 35 yards of fabric.
The girl went nuts when Hancocks fabrics closed down.
I love ya Laura!
Then my Flying Quilters quilt group kept the party week going,
with a fun filled day of stitching and laughter.
These 2 girls know how to have a good time.
Joi made this layered salad that was absolutely to die for.
If you've got a special occasion or just love a great salad, check it out
We just about cleanup up the entire bowl, it was so good!
Had I really known just how fabulous it was when I was serving it up...
I would have dished up
much smaller portions to everyone else!
Just kidding girls!
This was one of my birthday gifts...
Oh those girls know me so well!
Now I am wondering...
What does it mean when your husband runs over and turns
the light on, all the time???
He sure seems to love this thing!
Hummmmm.... maybe I don't want to know.
I spent the day with an old friend yesterday.
She took me out for lunch and Margaritas.
We chatted for almost 5 hours.
Thanks RaLynn for a great afternoon.
It all wrapped up with the family taking me out, for a Sushi dinner!
Today the party is over and all there was to do, was clean up the mess!
I had such a wonderful birthday week, that I decided to share a little of the joy with one of you.
I'm hosting a post birthday give away
All you have to do is answer the question
Are you older or younger than you think I am, in the comments below.
(I gave a hint above)
I've got a nice little surprise package for one of you.
It does include some Island Batik fabric!
I'll pick the winner next Tuesday August 2nd!
OH, and I've got a question for you.
Any idea what this is?
My son and his girlfriends found it at an antique store.
They bought it for me because it was old and said Alaska on it.
A Google search of old Alaska tools, found the answer.
(How would we survive without Google)
It's an ice shaver.
Anyone want a snow cone?
Keep on Stitchin'
