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!
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!
