Oh my! Can't believe I haven't posted in so long. It has been a busy week with meetings, doctor appointments, classes, etc.

This is birthday week at my house. Both DH and I turn a year older. We happen to be the same age. The bad part is my birthday is 5 days before his. I get to hear for 5 days how he is married to an older woman and how he is a younger man. I just tell him things are better with age!!! After those 5 days pass, ours lives settle back down for another year when the same thing happens all over again next September. Since we've been married 31+ yrs., I'm VERY accustomed to the routine.

On my birthday, I took myself out to a quilt shop in the area that I had not been to before. It was a nice little shop and I enjoyed myself. Only a couple of small items had to come home with me. I have not had time to take pictures, but try to get some and post them so you can see what I bought.

Yesterday was my applique class. We had so much fun. Most of the ladies are regulars who have been coming for a while. None of us really needed any help. We all just stitched and laughed and enjoyed one another. It was just a fun time. After class, we all do a little shopping. I found a wonder batik background to use for a future project. When there is a wonderful batik....if you don't grab it when you see it....it is usually sold within a week. Whole bolts have been known to sell during one class, so I got what I wanted yesterday since it was a new bolt. I'll try to get a picture of that too.

Just so this isn't a boring wordy post, I'll leave you with a photo of one of the botanicals I work on when I go to the applique class. This block is Wildrose.

Happy Birthday!! Just tell your DH that you are five days wiser that he will ever be! LOL

I wish I could find a class like yours. I am not much of a joiner and to be among folks who seem to be there just for the fun (and not to see who is the best, etc.) would be wonderful. It would be wonderful to learn from such ladies, Your flower is really nice.

Happy Birthday!! I too married a younger man, though I get to hear it for 8 months instead of 5 days... but he has grey hair and I don't... so the last laugh is on me.
