Happy Birthday To Me!!

My morning started with an 8:30am phone call to my answering machine with my mother, the early bird, singing the birthday song to me.... Me not being a morning person, I don't normally communicate much before 10am... well, you can imagine.... 8-) Then Mom and Dad popped in at 10:30am with cake in hand.... Time for my happy face! 8-/
This afternoon DD#2 and I went to get her some good walking shoes for her Australian trip in 8 days. While shopping for her I though I might as well get the Birkenstocks that my doc suggested I get for wearing around the house. Foot problems! Oh the joy of growing older... 8-/
My mom brought over the little local paper with the article of our presentation of, the Path Through the Pines donation quilt to the school. Don't ask me about the front page with the grown men in diapers. Not a clue, and don't want to know!
Here is the fruits of my labor from yesterday. I just about had the center of the anniversary wall-quilt completely quilted, and by 9pm things were just not going right, so I pushed myself away from the sewing table to look at again today... I haven't thus far yet. This is how I left it....
And the underside of it....I am still in the learning stages of machine quilting, so it is kind of wonky, but that is OK! 8-)
DH is apparently taking me out for eats tonight, so that will be nice....

That be it for today.... I think! 8-)

Happy Birthday!
You're miles ahead of me with machine quilting! I can't even begin to manage free motion quilting.

A belated Happy Birthday, Myra. Hope you had a wonderful day. Your machine quilting looks good to me. I am still in the learning stage, but making some progress. "They" say the secret is practice. Where did you go for your birthday dinner? TTFN...........Lilly
