Turning a very special number...

 We have (had) a quilting group at the hospital where I work.  We were called "The Remnants".   Alas, I am the only one left working there!!  Three are retired, one is working at another place, so that one leaves little lonesome me, LOL!!  So...these girls called me to meet at a local restaurant...one was turning fifty...one sixty...and one seventy!!  I am one of those birthdays...and the birthday girls all got quilts!  This one is mine...bright, bright, pretty, and mostly batiks and bright squares.  It is so soft and just smells heavenly.  Another lady got a quilt just the same, but all reds.  She received color catchers too, LOL!
 Another view...
And the quilting!!  One of these ladies has a long arm quilting machine, and she quilted it.  I love it!!!


What a very fun surprise!  I also received a bag made all from ties, which I will show soon.  And some pink fat quarters too!  How spoiled is that??

If I don't post for a while...don't worry!!  I may be out of pocket for a bit.  I will be back soon with some fresh and fun stuff!!  and a surprise!


I hope you all have a great Monday!

Julie

Happy Birthday, whenever it is. How fun to have had a quilting group of work friends. I could never interest anyone in doing that.

Happy 50th Birthday (since that's the smallest number you gave us, I figure it is yours) :)
Couldn't have happen to a more deserving nurse/quilter. I love the quilt. They/she did an excellent job in picking the fabric; it is bright and sunny like you.
May this year be filled with good health, joy, family and friends, and plenty of sewing time, all sprinkled with happy surprises. XOXO

Happy birthday! I had one of those special birthdays this year, too. No quilt, but a tablet that I had been wanting, so all was good!

Happy Birthday, Julie! What a sweet gift and time to spend with your previous co-workers. That quilt will mean more to you all the time. I have one made by a previous manager and signed by all my co-workers where I worked in southern California. It amazes me to this day ❤️
I hope it's a great year for you!
