Happy Birthday to me.......

Long day at work. On Mondays I am there by myself and even though I get a lot done calling delinquent accounts or insurances, it gets quite boring being there all by myself for 8 or 9 hours! I got home and there sitting on the table is this wonderful package from Leona with gifts for me for my birthday!!! I didn't get pictures of the package because I was so excited to rip it open and see what wonderful things she had made me. Wow...look at the darling tissue holder and zippered bag she made just for me. I love the delicate white flowers on the bright pink background. And the bag has a cute pink lining with a key tag. Thank you so much Leona. I love my birthday gifts. Aren't quilters the most generous people.


One thing I have found out about myself over the years is that I am not the most patient person. I gave the Uniform Wonkyness blocks to Janine to add the sashing.....she hasn't had time yet to work on it so I begged them back from her. Wednesday is my day off so I will try to get them all sewn together. So. . . . in the meantime I have been working on a few things that need to be done. I got 2 Christmas quilts back from the quilter, sewed the binding on so I can have some hand work to do in the car this weekend. My husband and I are taking a quick trip to Portland and Seaview Oregon to visit my aunt (my Dad's twin sister) and to pick up something she said I could have. I will share a picture of "IT" when we get back. I'm so excited!!!


I also got the next 2 backs and bindings made for 2 Christmas quilts so they are ready for the quilter. Remember in January when I was so gung ho about getting 8 Christmas quilts made. . . well I had 4 tops made by the end of February. But here it is October and I'm just getting the backs and quilting done. Guess 4 of the kids will get their Christmas quilts next year! I had such good intentions.........
Happy Quilting! Lynda

You are so inspiring - after work today (all 3 hours) I came home and put on a quilt and got it half quilted! My goal is to finish 5 quilts by Christmas! (not for gifts, so I can buy more projects!)

Oh, so happy a birthday I'm wishing on you, Linda! I hope your trip goes well.
I have too full a plate for the next 2 months, but we'll keep plugging along!

Well I reckon that 4 out of 8 is brilliant. Anyway, if you made them all this year what would you have to aim for next year?
