I Feel Special!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes! It's been a pretty darn good birthday week so far, thanks to all my friends!

On Monday, my friend Pam brought an iced latte to embroidery class for me. The next night, Gran gave me fat quarters of every polka dot fabric Bearpaws & Hollyhocks had as well as the cutest Halloween pins. On Wednesday night, I gathered up the packages that had arrived for me in the mail, and carried them into my bedroom and opened them. Soon my bed was covered with gifts, boxes, cards, and tissue paper! Spike had a wonderful time too!


And what was in those boxes? Well, Eileen sent me two baskets, a trilogy of Nora Roberts' books, a handmade book cover, a lotion bar, and a bunch of bugs--she always sends me something to make me laugh!


Carol sent me the cutest apron (you can see a photo on her blog), a quilt pattern (one I've been looking at off and on for some time--how did she know?), and a handmade card--darling! (Both Eileen and Carol, besides being blogging friends, are members of a small, online Yahoo Thimbleberries group I belong to.)

Then, today I received a card from the always entertaining and somewhat zany Dianne WITH a Starbucks card enclosed. I think it would be so much fun to meet her in person some day! If you ever hear about the arrest of two crazy middle aged quilters wearing bunny slippers and pink flamingo slippers, you'll know we met up somewhere. (And, by the way, check out her recent posts, Boys go to Jupiter and Girls go to Mars--Boys go to Jupiter is just perfect!)

Yes, I've been treated awfully special so far, and you don't even know the HALF of it! I'll have to tell you more later. Right now, it's time to have a piece of the birthday cake Hubby picked out--YUM!

Happy Birthday to you!! Your hubby did a fantastic job on picking out that cake!! Wowzers! It looks delicious! My birthdate is just three days before Christmas and because DH knows how much I hate my birthday month he avoids cakes because they usually are decorated for the holidays!

I'm so glad that you enjoyed your Birthday week -- and that cake - OMG, I'm drooling just looking at it -- please don't tell me it's peanut butter & chocolate. It's a good thing that we are on opposite sides of the U.S., otherwise I would be knocking at your door (with a gift, of course!)
