Happy Birthday and March is Machine Quilting Month, Too

Today is my birthday. ARG - 42. I don't know why, but that number just seems way tooooo high. I know it's not, it's just me being crazy. I will get a call from my dad tonight wishing me Happy Birthday. In his mind, I'm still 7. To him, I haven't progressed in age at all. (High school & college graduations along with a marriage and birth of a child were rather difficult for him to fathom). A happy medium between the two numbers would be good. Oh well, it's better than the alternatives.

Grace was very excited this morning to tell everyone that today was my birthday. It was very entertaining to have 8 little kids running around me SCREAMING happy birthday Gracie's Mommy (because I have no first name other than Gracie's mommy). I'm good with that though.

To celebrate tonight, I think we will partake of some Sheridan's custard cake. For those of you not in the KC area, you don't know what you are missing. It's the BOMB baby! The Weight Watchers program will start tomorrow. :-)

On the quilting front, I've decided that March will be declared machine quilting month just like I did for February. I managed to get some quilts done and out of the box of UFOs, but I don't feel like I put a big enough dent in the pile. So, I'm hoping to get about 4 or 5 more tops completed. Hopefully by the end of the weekend, I can provide some photos.

Hmmm, what am I thinking???? Saturday is my 17th Anniversary. That's another crazy number. Funny how when you get married, you think it will be all wine and roses and then you hit the first bump in the road... Well I'm happy to say we have had some bumps, dips and HUGE potholes, but we have managed to weather them all and learn from each. In this day and age where the divorce rate is out this world, I'm happy to say that we have made it to year number 17.

I would much rather be at home sewing today, but I must get busy! Have a good day!!!
