Birthday Present from Mary

Here I am at guild yesterday with my birthday present from Mary. She embroidered this pillow for me. Isn't it a great color? I love lime green and she knows it.

I had a quiet birthday today. I spent much of the day quilting on a charity quilt for Heartstrings, an internet group that makes string quilts. I practiced by doing a freehand feather overall that turned out very nice. Next step is to put on the binding and turn it over to Ronald McDonald house for a child.

This evening I taught my purse group at Tiny Stitches and they brought me a cake to celebrate. Very good cake. Bill brought me flowers and a plant. The flowers were from the dogs. My grandson called and sang happy birthday to the answering machine - pretty good for a four year old. All in all, a nice day.


  1. Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a great day. Very cute pillow.

  2. What a cute pillow. I'm branching out a little since working on a doll size crazy quilt and I actually embroidered some words on a mini quilt this week. It's kind of fun.

    How nice for us that you spent your Birthday quilting a HeartStrings quilt! Make sure you send us a photo.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
