Happy Birthday to Me!!

Well my birthday celebration just finished up, and it was fantastic :)  I really do have a wonderful family.  I got new Gingher knife edge sewing scissors!  Yay!!  I also got a gift certificate to our local quilt store, Glacier Quilts.  I'm excited to decide what my next project will be so I can spend my gift card on some new gorgeous fabrics!  Plus since it's my birthday month I get a discount at Glacier Quilts, so my gift card will go even farther.  

Louie seems to approve of my gifts as well :)

On another note, I have been working on my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt some too.  I've been having some bad pain days due to the weather, so it's slow going.  I really like this 2nd block I finished though, it turned out great.

I think I forgot to mention in my last post that all those black threads are basting threads and are holding the paper pieces in place.  They will stay in for stability until I sew the next rows on and sew the flowers together.

So it's been a good week.  I'm working on an orange flower next.  Orange is a favorite of mine, so I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished project. :)

It would look better without the black strings ;)

Definitely, but I'm not taking that basting out until the very, very, very last second! I don't want any chance of all that hard work coming unraveled!
