Oh Happy Day!

Can't believe I haven't posted anything all week - this has been a crazy week with not enough time as usual! Friday I met Sharon for lunch at our favorite yummy eatery to celebrate my birthday!!! Hey, wait a minute, I know I keep forgetting things, but did I forget it's my birthday???? Look at the goodies she brought me.
She knows what I like! LOVE those Cath Kidston bags! And I don't know why but I seem to be obsessed with cupcakes. The cupcake book is WONDERFUL! Look at the yummy flower cookie - good thing I have a picture, cause that thing is history now!

How cute is this crocheted tape measure! The picture doesn't really show all the great detail. Cute as cute can be!!
Thanks Sharon for the great birthday stuff ----oh, now I remember it really isn't my birthday yet. Think I like this pre-birthday celebrating. What ? There's another bag???? Now I'm being spoiled! This one is chocked full of Fall goodies! A wonderful Susan Branch book, dried Fall pods and berries, and a cute witches wand sucker! And I love how that bag is decorated.

Here's an outside view of the sweet Fall bowl. Can't wait to make the famous ball of cheese to go in it!
And did you notice I got one of the cute Fall Purses that Sharon is giving away over on her blog!!! You can have one too - just go sign up! Also, she's hosting a chocolate swap over there - Red Geranium Cottage, and I know we all love chocolate! Thanks Sharon for all the wonderful goodies and for the great day!

I'm still concentrating on finishing up what I have. here's a quilt I started a number of years ago. There are 3 other sections just like this one. I have all the blocks and triangles, done just need to put them together. Love the blocks. The handles are appliqued, and you can't beat civil war reproduction fabrics! Here's a shop project that I'm going to be working on.

I love Cotton Way patterns.This is made with charms and jellyrolls. I just can't seem to get enough of them, and the projects work up so fast!

Today I will be doing the happy dance - I'm spending the day with my daughter, which means lots of shopping and of course going out to lunch. See you later alligators!
