So thankful

Three things to be happy about:
(1) birthday wishes
(2) birthday wishes
(3) birthday wishes!

I want to thank you all so much for all the birthday wishes, they made my day even greater!  They all went directly to this little ole lady's heart  *sniff*  It's quilty friends like you who make blogging such a great experience!

I was gifted a lovely piece of Jinny Beyer fabric that she designed for the November 2012 Quilters Quest.  It's almost too pretty to cut up!  I also got a Fons & Porter Klutz glove - NEED IT!!  Did you notice it's in both pictures?  That's because on two occasions when I was rotary cutting the blade jumped the edge of my ruler... it didn't come too-too  close to my hand but it might have!  Both times I said to myself  "I really should get a pair of those Fons & Porter gloves"... but I never did.  Now I have a pair - thanks Renea!

Then yesterday evening while I was sewing there came a tap-tap-tap at my door - it was my neighbors Rachel, Isaiah and Matt from across the street with birthday wishes!  They are such sweet neighbors!  Matt had shoveled the snow from my walk and steps on Thursday morning... while I was still sleeping, LOL. 

You can't see her but of course their dog Mia came; she knows wherever her mom and dad go, she can go too.

They presented me with this delicious tart (torte?) along with a birthday hat and a candle to wish on ... how thoughtful is that??

They could only stay half-a-second because Rachel was packing to catch an evening flight overseas, and that makes it even more thoughtful that they came over in the snow to wish me happy birthday!

Besides family and friends, I also got birthday wishes from: (1) my dentist "...we're thinking of you on this special day" - yeah, right, I'm due back in there in March! (2) my Honda salesman "Dear Linda, All business aside... I just wanted to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" - he wants to sell me another car (3) Total Rewards casinos "May this year be the best ever. Happy Birthday from Total Rewards" - they just want more of my money! (4) the orthodontist who did my root canal "Happy Birthday Mary! We hope you have many reasons to smile today!"  Anybody who calls me "Mary" doesn't know me because everyone who knows me knows I don't like my first name.  So much for that nonsense.

Well, today is Bee day ... will I go?  We got snow yesterday and they're promising it will be clearing up but I'm not a fan of driving on slickery streets if I don't really have to.  Stay tuned to learn my earth-shaking decision - sew forth and sew on...


  1. Linda, I hate slickery streets too. You are the best. Glad your day was a fun one.

  2. I am so glad to hear that you had a good birthday. Have fun at the Bee too. Hey, why not celebrate all weekend?

  3. Belated happy birthday wishes! Wonderful neighbors too! I was so tickled to see the work 'slickery'. It brought back some childhood memories.

  4. Oh what wonderful neighbors! And look at those cheeks on that baby. He's too adorable.

  5. I'm so glad you had a wonderful birthday! Have fun at your meeting!
