So here’s my Stash Report for this week. While I did use 3 yards, I have to say that I added 3 1/4 yards because it was my birthday. I belong to the Birthday Fat Quarter Swap at Quilts Your Way. Here’s a picture of the fabulous Batik Fat Quarters I received from all my quilty friends. Aren’t they lovely? Can’t wait to put them into a quilt.
Here are my numbers for the year to date:
2009 Fabric In 100.74
2009 Fabric Out 52.39
2009 Net Used -48.35
Yesterday was my birthday. The big 60. And, my friends are welcoming me into the 60 something club. I don’t feel any different but somehow I feel like I’ve arrived. I felt the same way when I turned 50.
My son gave me the best birthday card that says it all. Here is a direct quote from the card. It’s from Hallmark so I’ll give credit where credit is due.
60 is about feeling excited to be alive at a time when you’re free to really live.
60 is about knowing yourself, being yourself-and truly like who you’ve become.
But most of all, 60 is about celebrating the beginning of the most beautiful years of your life.
I spent the day with my grandkids yesterday and we had our usual family party last night. Today, my friends are gathering for a barbeque. My best friend’s brother-in-law was also born on the 8th (although five years before me) so we are celebrating both our birthdays today.
Happy Birthday to us, John!
