A Very Special Day!
I have been having some computer problems posting to my blog, so this is a little late. Sunday was a very special day because it was my birthday! Yay!
This is what I woke up to on Sunday morning. My dear husband decorated our family room with balloons and a banner.
Lucy was more interested in the balloons than the cards and gifts...
And of course the wrapping paper. :-)
On Saturday night we went to one of my favorite restaurants, a local Thai and Indonisian restaurant.
Yum! I always order the Lombak Tilapia. It is marinated with coriander and fennel, then grilled and served with tomato/basil/chili sweet soy chutney and accompanied with ginger yam puree. Delicious!
On Sunday afternoon my husband took me to one of my favorite quilting stores, Pennington Quilt Works. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures inside... but take my word for it , it's a phenomenal store. Plus I had a 20% off birthday discount!
This shop was featured in this recent issue of Quilt Sampler.
Later in the day I spent some time sewing something FUN. Aren't these stripey fish the cutest things? I have been wanting to make these for awhile.. so I treated myself to some fun sewing time. (Hmmm isn't all sewing fun?) More on these later! :-)
The birthday cards were the best! Do you see a common cat theme here?? You'd think Lucy picked out some of these cards! LOL
