Today is a better day!

Yesterday has come and gone. Today, Travis called to wish me a belated happy birthday, as did Lisa on Facebook.

I did go back and tried again with the bookmarks. A little organza is all they needed. I was so excited I took the picture while they were still wet.They really are quite delicate and they have a bird and flowers embroidered on them.

So, yesterday wasn't a complete bust!

Had a thought and will share more later but, think I will try an on-line 'Quilting Bee' this summer. Hope somebody is out there and interested in joining in. Love to hear from you.

Happy quilting! Sandi


Birthday plans and so what...

Today's my 65th birthday. I plan to do nothing, as are the plans of family and friends. We'll eat leftovers and a fruit smoothie for me. Looking on the brighter side, I've lost 5lbs and tomorrow is another day!

My friend Jerrie brought a card and flowers this morning. She's the best friend a gal could have.
Bill had a lovely card ready first thing this morning.We don't go out to eat, too hard with the oil free Vegan diet and I'm not cooking tonight. We'll celebrate my birthday along with Mother's Day on Sunday at Travis'.
 Yesterday, I spent an hour or so embroidering a couple pretty little bookmarks and the following is what I ended up with. OH POOH! Apparently they needed an organza base. Directions would have been nice. Maybe, I'll try again today.

Who says everyday is a productive day? I'll let you know tomorrow if mine was.

Hope your day is lovely and productive!
