Blessed to be…..



The lovely Linda of LIVING THE DREAM  has done it again.  I just celebrated a ‘fifty something’ birthday and was blown away not only by her beautifully handmade gift and card (and other goodies) but by the blessing of her friendship.    Thank you, my dear friend.  The saying on this red work hanger couldn’t be more perfect.



I also received this package of treats from Leona for my birthday.  Please pay a visit to her wonderful blog.


AND not only that!  I was lucky enough to win Leona’s giveaway!

Blog Giveaway 1 

Being a big fan of Jennifer’s books I can’t wait to read this one.

Blog Giveaway 2 

Just started on March 1st Temecula Quilt Co.  is having another free quilt along called Blessings.    I will be able to use this Civil War charm pack and try out this beautiful variegated Superior King Tut thread.   Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Leona.


Also to help me celebrate my niece and SIL brought over this amazing cheesecake.  Let’s just say I’ll be on the exercise bike until my next birthday after eating most of this.



I have been sewing (honest).   A birthday gift is now done and on it’s way and a baby quilt is ready to be quilted.  Also this HST top is ready to be layered.    So it hasn’t all been presents and cake.


Thanks for stopping by on this windy and snowy (for us) Saturday.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all those effected by the tornadoes in the United States.

God bless,

Happy birthday, Diane! What wonderful gifts you received for your special day--and won a book besides! That cheesecake looks deadly (and delicious).
I'm going to check out Temecula's quilt along and see if I feel up to it!
Lovely quilt top of HSTs.
Fun post!

I have this new book also but haven't read it yet. I'm currently reading The Wedding Quilt. I'm having a hard time finishing it for some reason. Your post photos are eye candy!
