Well, as much as we ever do. Today is my birthday, but we had a lot of important appointments scheduled. So last night we had a quiet family party. Which, by the way, is how I like it!!
This was my little gift to myself. Wish you had a scratch and sniff screen. I am having a little more for breakfast right now with coffee!!
Treasure brought home this cake from a local bakery. Yum!!!! I am not a fan of store bought cakes. Treasure thinks that it is just WRONG to have to make your own birthday cake. Years ago he started buying cheesecake (love him). This year he had heard about this bakery. He, and the cake, get A+++++!
Then there was the gift... As if this isn't impressive enough, I loved hearing the story of how he came to find these. He called no less than six quilt shops looking for ...Flea Market Fancy. (Apparently he has read my blog!) When they didn't have that, he asked if they had reproduction feedsack fabrics. Overwhelmingly the answer was no. My man was not discouraged. He went to a not-so-local quilt shop. One that I have never visited. I guess the clerks were puzzled by a man in a quilt shop. When he said he was there to buy a gift for his wife, well they were just atwitter! He told me they seemed a little nervous that he was picking out fabric for me, and shouldn't he just get a gift certificate? Well, he did that too. I guess I will be visiting that shop!
The little book is something that probably never would have caught my eye. After looking through it, I wonder how I have quilted so long with out it. Click on the picture so that you can see all the stuff in there.
Oh, and the appointments got cancelled. You can see why out my kitchen window. Under all that snow is a compact layer of ice. So, Randi, I haven't gotten those skirts mailed yet.
Thanks for humoring me through such a long post. Stay warm.
