Happy Birthday to me!

This morning I was woken up by my kids letting me know it was my birthday! Now of course I knew that, but the kids enthusiasm is so cute, so I played along. Last week while we were shopping at the plaza, I had showed the kids a present I'd like, so in good form, I received it this morning. Some of you will say ewwwww ... but I had a cute gold toe ring which snapped during the year, and I missed it so much, especially with sandal season upon us, so I chose a new one. Let me know if you want to see it and I'll share ... or not :-)

I'm having lunch with Renee today, and coffee with my Mum after she finishes work, so it will be a fun and busy day. I also have some work I need to do before I head to the quilt store tomorrow.

For show and tell today, I have a picture of the holly table runner. This is from the Susan Murphy class I did recently. I just have to sew the binding down on the back. I will also sew some clusters of little red beads among the holly leaves. Susan had beads on the demonstration piece and it looked wonderful. This will be a Christmas gift for Cam's day care lady. Well, she's actually Amy's after school care lady too. Christine is very special to us.

I've shown a close up of the quilting too, cuz I'm just so thrilled with it! Now that I've put the picture in place, I can see that the quilting doesn't show really well, but you can see the applique. Mary mentioned the other day that she doesn't care too much for the machine applique, and I have to confess that it's not my favourite thing either. My particular favourite is needleturn, but I don't think I could face needleturning this project.

Well, that's it for me, have a great day everyone, I know I will!

Oh I am so jealous of the day care lady! Maybe I'll come and do day care for you!!!! :)

I think toe rings are so cute, if you have cute toes. I for one have ugly, ugly toes from years of being smashed in toe shoes! So I can't pull it off, but my girls look adorable with them!

Really cute table runner Tazzie! The machine applique is great. That's what we pay the big bucks for, right? I must look for the magazine with your quilt in it--that is so neat! Hope your birthday is great!

That's one of the prettiest holly applique designs I've seen. You did a nice job on it! I wouldn't have wanted to needleturn that either.

Happy Birthday!
