I had a really wonderful birthday. I got cards from sweet friends. I got gorgeous flowers from my thoughtful sister!
I got a sweet card and a certificate for the J-store from Karen (I do love me some J-store bargains!) and I plan to get stabilizer and maybe some Misty Fuze for some projects I'm contemplating! I also got this beautiful necklace and earrings from Karen.... Wow!
I love them! Karen has excellent taste!! :)
I got all kinds of presents from Michael! I guess it must have been because I'm Double Nickles this year (55) that I got matching gift certificates from M&Ls fabric store! Whooo hooo!
I also got this adorable piggy bank. Is he not the cutest thing? (He has a pink sister living in Karen's room!)
(Sorry, I'm sitting sideways here, admiring his paisley designs!) See the fat quarters right in front of me? I haven't stopped patting them yet!
When we finished celebrating, I went upstairs and decided to experiment with a new stabilizer that is for lighter weight fabrics, and I decorated two basic tee-shirts.
They turned out pretty well, so I plan to get more of the stabilizer and keep on decorating all the tee-shirts I found when I cleaned out my sewing room!
Then I finished up the last two five inch blocks for the Saturday Sampler this month. Here is the ten inch block and the three five inch blocks. I could have picked better contrasting materials on one of them, but I'm pleased overall.
I'm all wound down! The End!
