When it comes to birthdays, everyone is different.
(note: the little signs say 50 Sucks, Bites & Blows…)
I personally think they’re a lot of fun.
My family in particular likes to celebrate them,
and this year, since it was a big one for me,
they really did that!
It was a surprise party for me.
I had no clue.
I didn’t want a party.
My DH turned 50 last summer, and we had a party for him, so it seemed like it would be a bit redundant.
They went all out and reserved a new tea room,
invited all my friends,
and were able to keep it a surprise up until the very moment we turned onto the street.
We were supposedly on our way to church, a typical Saturday evening for us,
but when we passed up our church and instead turned a couple of blocks later,
I knew right away what was going on then.
I have no clue how they pulled it off without anyone slipping, even a teeny bit.
My only out-of-state brother came!
My out-of-town college roommate who I’ve remained close with all these years came too!
We talked, we ate, we had a lot of fun!
I got cash, gift cards, flowers, candy, jewelry,
It’s no surprise to you I’m sure that I have quilting friends.
Two of my designer friends sent me a box,
& in that box was a fat 1/4 of red & white fabric, thread & cash to add more fabric
along with a challenge!
I have to send them a photo of a finished project by July 15, 2014.
Another designer friend sent me the tiny red, white & black 9 patches.
They go perfectly with the red & white fat 1/4 & my Vintage Play black road dashes plus she included my Vintage Play red tonal numbers in the center of each block!
Whoever said getting old is no fun?
I plan to just keep sewing…
Now you know what I’ve been doing.
I’m busy getting old!
Until next time,
