Thanks to everyone who wrote and wished me a happy birthday! It's been a very nice day even though I've spent it alone and to make it even better, I just got an email from Keith saying he should be home by 7PM and he'll take me to dinner. So lots of whining all week about nothing!
I did manage to get out to the Four Seasons Quilt Shop in Plymouth, MN - Jeanne recommended I visit it. I've been a good little stashbuster for most of the year but I was running low on some of my staples...backgrounds, blues, and reds....the woman at the shop commented that I must be doing patriotic quilts but no...I've just found that blues and reds are my favorites for borders and bindings on my scrap quilts and they work well with our HeartStrings quilts too. I've also wanted to try Mary Ellen's Best Press so I picked up some of that too.
When I got home I found this massive gift basket from Keith - filled to the brim with all kinds of bath goodies...have I mentioned how much I love taking a bath with a glass of wine and a good book? Thanks Keith!
And one other gift was waiting to be opened too from my Mom. I'd mentioned that I'd been wanting to try some of the new silicone bakeware and now I have an entire set. Thanks Mom!
