Thank you all for the thoughtful birthday wishes and sweet notes. I've taken them all into my heart where they will live on forever. I am truly grateful for my family and friends, old and new, and those I've made through this blog. I want to thank Diane at Persnickety Quilts for the darling Birthday Tribute too! The fall quilt (she made in 1994) is a stunner, as all of her quilts are.
She's also shared her method for organizing quilt information which I think is brilliant. Check it out if you need a little more organization in your quilt life.
Well, I must say it's been a wonderful birthday week for me. Downtime, fun quilt-sewing, a walk in the woods, dining out and dining in. The girls baked me the best cake I've ever had, hands down. They worked on it most of the day. I was told to cover my eyes and stay out of the kitchen. I'm always so touched by how hard they try, all the effort they put in.
It's the gifts of the heart that mean the most.
