A bit of birthday surprises and odds and ends

Got home from dropping my mom and sister off at the airport to go back home this afternoon and look what I found when I got home! These gorgeous flowers from my friend in Canberra, Australia! Are they not just the perfect thing for sick birthday girl! Especially since it was cold and snowy/rain outside! And then to top it off, I got a phone call from her after dinner! LOVED talking to you again Jodie!

And look what I got from Wendy the other day for my birthday! Just what I needed when feeling about down from being out of sorts!


On the way home from the airport Holly and I stopped at the quilt shop to pick out fabric for her wedding quilt. I won't show her what the quilt will look like, but wanted some input to fabric colors and styles. I can't show the finished product because that would spoil her surprise since she checks in here now and then! And she loved these table runners for her new apartment when she gets married so we bought the pattern to have on hand.

And look what I did finish this week while feeling rotten! My first block for Winter Wonderland! Isn't he just too cute!
