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
Happy Stitching,


  1. YaY is right! what a fun day - it has everything I love too down to the Thai - it's my favorite food to eat out.
