I've had a couple of weeks of celebration! Having family around for my birthday recently was my dream present. At my age I have everything I need (and want!) so my stock answer when I'm asked, "What would you like for your birthday?" is always "to have family with me". Having said that, I did receive some lovely presents as well!
Last week, it was our 49th wedding anniversary. We celebrated by attending a Symphony Orchestra concert and a meal out with some friends.
I am so blessed to have spent so many years with my wonderful husband and love of my life.
And I'm celebrating finishing a quilt. It was one of my 'slow' projects, commissioned more than a year ahead, so I had plenty of time to tackle it little by little. Just a sneak peak or two for now:
I am really thrilled at how it has turned out.
Another celebration that is happening soon is the wedding of a friend's daughter. I've been asked to make a coat hanger for the bride's dress. I will be in my element with guipure lace, beads, and ribbon for this next project.
When I showed you the pincushion below a couple of months ago, there was a lot of interest in it and I promised I would make it available in my Craftsy Store.
That's happened now and the pattern is available for just $5. Check it out here.
I'm having a break from stitching this week - tell you about it next time!
