I can't believe I won!

I came home so tired last night and while I was eating a bite of supper I decided to make it thru a few more of the WIP entries for the week.  There are 99 now and it takes me all week to look at all the beautiful work.  Mostly because I have to keep wiping the drool off my chin.  I clicked on Meinca's site and I see my name!  I won her give-a-way.  Four fat quarters by Natalie Barnes of Beyond the Reef patterns.  The colors are awesome and of course my favorite places in the world have the word beach in them.  Can't wait to see them in person.  I never win anything so this is very exciting.  And on my birthday no less.  Go on over and check out her wonderful blog.

No sewing this week, but I had to go by my favorite quilt shop "Mama's" to see what came in while I was so busy and imagine this "I found fabric I need to buy".  Brenda is beginning to get in Christmas fabric, the latest is Jason Yenter's new fabric.  It will be a stretch but I am absolutely certain I will be able to find a corner in my sewing room to put a few yards of it.  Or on the living room couch, or coffee table, or dining room table or ..........

Well....I got to go get dressed to go to work....have a wonderful day everyone.  Sew one for me!

It's My Birthday!

Had to post today!  It's my birthday (57) if anyone's counting!  It doesn't bother me to tell my age.  I am amazed that I made it.  I don't feel that old (at least for today).  And I can't believe that one of my favorite blogs "Cat Patches" is one year old today and she is having a fabulous birthday give-a-way.  Run on over and check it out.  I have cute, cute button near the bottom of my pages.  She loves cats too!

I don't have time to feel old, too busy.  Been meeting myself going and coming at work.  No time to even touch my sewing machine in the last week and a half. 
This beautiful girl is getting married in August.  Here she is with her mother and future mother-in-law at a shower we gave her Sunday.  Not only is she beautiful on the outside, she is more beautiful on the inside.  I can't wait to see her walk down the aisle.  Congratulations Katie!

And right now in Louisiana, our beautiful crape myrtles are in bloom.  This one is right outside my favorite shopping place.  "Mama's Quilt Shop"

Everyone have a great day!
