I'm back!!!!!

I'M BACK!!!!!

Wow! It has been 16 days since my computer died! I finally got it back 16 days and $135 later I am back in business! I have missed you all so much! I have been lost too death! So I will have lots to talk about in the next few days so expect several posts!

First off, Andrew's doctor's appointment got rescheduled until April 18th. As a mother, I will just worry until I find something out with him. Hunter will have his surgery on the 24th!

So I guess this post will be about my birthday! In my last post that I posted from my mom's I mentioned a few gifts. Here is a photo of a beautiful card from Amelia! And Maureen sent me a wonderful card, a bag of Dove chocolates (that didn't last very long!), and a charm pack of paisley fabrics! I love paisleys, they are my favorite fabric designs! I just love all of them!


Then a few days later I recieved a gift from Jen! Another beautiful card and fabric! And the best part about it is the charm squares that Maureen sent has the same fabrics in them! I can't wait to use them!


It means so much to have friends like you all! You have become very special to me! I so enjoy reading everyone's blogs!

I am constantly asking my sister, Chantal when she is going to quilt with me. I always get a "I don't know, maybe someday" So on my birthday I spent the whole day with family and had lots of fun, so that evening Chantal called and said she was bringing something out. I asked what it was because they had already gave me gifts. She said, "I made you a quilt" I was shocked! I couldn't wait to see it! So here she came, knocking on my door with this!

She had baked me a cake and tried to decorate it like a quilt! Now, how sweet is that?? It brought tears to my eyes that she would even think to do that! I loved it!

I had a wonderful birthday! Thank you all so much for the gifts and birthday wishes!

Oh by the way! I have Hunter trained! You can ask him how old his mommy is and he says... "26" Richard laughs at me, but we won't tell anyone that I really turned 36! :)

Welcome back! I was so glad to see something besides "My Computer Died" when I got to your site on the Prolific Quilters Blog Ring. I can't imagine how you must have felt these past couple of weeks. Did you get a lot of quilting done?
