Happy Birthday To Our Girl!

Twenty six years ago today we became the very proud parents of our daughter. We had a mini birthday party with some of her friends. They met up at our house, on their way to a three day vacation in Las Vegas. Got out the old Sunbeam mixer (it was my mom's), and whipped up a cake befitting of our cupcake......a giant cupcake cake for our cupcake girl................and a girl has to do what a girl has to do :-)!!! And of course no party would be complete without tiaras!! Happy day to you. You are the best daughter ever!!

Lots going on here. We had Bailey dog for 3 days and had loads of fun with her. There was some fast running...... helping with some pool cleaning......

......and some resting in the house with her favorite giraffe toy. Boy, somebody needs to get the binding on your quilt Bailey!!!!.....and making the world famous barbecued pizza that Sharon came up with! Now that's some pizza pie...yumo, yumo, yumo!!! Bailey quite enjoyed the crusts!

I finished the top for my Summer Stash Challenge and a sweet little Mary E. Christmas hanging, and started working on another quilt using charm squares and a jelly roll..love that Mary E fabric.

So now I am only 3 months behind on my Christmas project a month challenge!No problem....the middle of next week we are off for 5 days of camping in the can, and the plan is to work on the 3 Christmas projects...hmmm, we shall see!! I just had to share this sweet butterfly quilt...Pat, who is one of our Tuesday morning group, made it. I love how the one butterfly is flying off to the right. Great job Pat and lucky is the person who will be getting it!!

Hope everyone is having a great week. The plan here is for a couple more days of sewing, an outing with a friend, and then getting ready for our trip. Well gotta RUN....see you later alligators :-)!!! PS: Just in case anyone forgot we are getting close to 5 weeks for Mr. Luke's arrival :-)!!!!!!
