The Party is Over!

I didn't realize that so many of you would be attending my little birthday celebration - thanks for coming! Did you have as much fun as I did? teehee!!! Thank you, thank you for all the birthday wishes and comments on my 200th post. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that you read and hopefully enjoy my blog.

Bet you thought I'd be the only one opening gifts? Well, guess what? I have gifts to share! Remember my mystery tease earlier this week? Well, they were pincushions waiting to be stuff and finished. *evil giggle* I think these are the cutest pincushions and the pattern is free here. I'd love to send a pincushion to each and everyone of you but the postage would devastate my fabric buying budget. I do try to keep my priorities in order, afterall it's all about ME - LOL! So, tomorrow morning I will post a list of 10 winners that will be receiving a pincushion from me! I have to wait till tomorrow cuz my trusty helper is sleeping. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Let me tell you about my day. I spent all morning playing in my sewing room and I finished this! This is Coventry from Comfort and Joy by Acorn Quilt and Gift Co. You might remember, I fell in love with this book when it was released in May. Yummy projects! In fact, I'll have another finished soon.

I wasn't feeling very well Wednesday night so we opted to wait a day or two to go to dinner with my DD and her family. I want to enjoy a nice meal. One of my neighbors called to tell me that a package had been delivered at their house so would I please pop over to pick it up. Well, it was all a ploy - it was a package with a gift from my boyfriend Buster (remind me to tell you about Buster another day). He attempted to order the Vintage Charm BOM project but there was something else in the box. I was excited about my gift but it was like opening a gift and you can't play with it because it's broken and must be exchanged. The box just taunts you. LOL
Tomorrow that little problem will be remedied and hopefully my BOM project will arrive next week. I can wait - no really I can! LOL

After that excitement, a friend stopped by with a quilt shop gift card, a very large cupcake and balloon to wish me a Happy Birthday!

When it was quiet we sat and watched my D'backs win a four game sweep against the Marlins. WooHoo! While I watched the game I stuffed and finished pincushions!

A very good day, indeed!
In Friendship!

Hello, Darlene! Glad to see you had a great day!

And how cute are those pincushions! Hope I'm lucky enough to winn one! *lol*

Your Coventry quilt is lovely, Darlene! I love the colours you have used! The background fabric is fab! What fabric line is it?

Best of luck sorting out the BOM!
Have a great weekend! Hugs and smiles :o)

Oh I'm glad you had a great Bday and I hope the replacement BOM will arrive soon. The new quilt turned out gorgeous of course, the background is perfect and I see what you mean but a fiddly border. I just discovered Acorn Quilt patterns and love them. Oh ya the pincushions are sweet. I like mine on my sewing table.

Floss said...

What a lovely birthday. The pincushions look so cute. Love the stripy boarder on your star quilt.
