BIRTHDAY Fling!

TODAY was my birthday! And it was a wonderful day, too! It happened to coincide with the Lee's Summit Quilter's Guild Spring Fling. What better way to spend the day than with friends sewing and laughing?

First of all, I got an absolutely terrific surprise from Becky, who made a special birthday cake for me! Chocolate is my very favorite, too! Thanks, Becky!


Remember the snowflakes I learned how to do from my CA friend, Wendy? Today we had a short "lesson" on how to make them. At our quilt college, Donna show the Accu-cut tool, and cut all the pieces we needed to make the snowflakes. I had already bonded the fabrics together, so we were able to provide kits to the Spring Flingers to work with. This is what got produced today, and there were several more that made it to the box before I left. Aren't they gorgeous?
Thanks everyone for making the day very special!

You're going to notice a few changes to the blog in the next few days/weeks. I am adding tutorial pages of things we are making for the Guild Boutique. Hopefully, you'll find them useful, too! Just check over on the right side of the blog, under tutorials. Clicking on the title should take you to that individual page. Then when you want to come back to the main, blog, you will click "click here" line on the tutorial page. Right now, there is only one tutorial, but when I get more time, I'll get some more out there, too.

I know I haven't posted the weekend pictures from the quilt show the Babes and I attended, but that can be for tomorrow. I wanted to share my special day with you
FIRST!!

(and I am having some issues with Blogger and the size of type it chooses...it's Blogger or me - not YOUR eyes!)

Keep stitching!

Sharon,

I found your blog spot! (If you spell it out - I get it.)
You bring new meaning to so many things, such as hodge podge. I had always considered it to be all those classes that one is required to take their freshman year in college.
