even when supposedly picking up money!

anywho, son and grands coming over today to celebrate my birthday.
I turned 29 (DID TOO) on Apr 5th...........
we dont usually do much anymore. hubs cant have cake, I dont like sugar free cake, and with all his issues with teeth etc we dont go out to eat anymore either.

neighbor is going to take me to breakfast one day as a treat. that will be fun!

BUT, my bloggy friend JulieRose sent me a package........
yep an ORANGE package...........

filled with goodies!

dont cha just LOVE quilting friends? they are the BEST!  thanks Julie
I cant wait to use some of these in my quilt! those glasses are fun!

                                            and the gals at work bought me flowers!

my other quilting friend that I sometimes sew with here
also gifted me on my birthday

she used two flower pots as a basket
how clever
and filled it with garden goodies
new gloves, 2 butterfly pot hangers

some moonflowers.........I have never heard of them
but cant wait to plant them and check them out!
and some morning glories    love those!

and she made me this snack bag
to carry things to work for lunch..........

and also gifted me in orange.


I think I now have enough orange for my circle quilt
and then some!

a fabric in my quilt

Happy Belated 29th! I celebrated the 30th anniversary of my 29th this year. I struggle with orange when working on my RSC blocks. It's great to have friends to fill in those voids!!!
