Long Time, No Post..!!!

Well, here I am's been forever since I posted a comment or two! I guess I've just been busy with life's daily events!!! A few milestones have also come and gone since I last wrote. I finished the 169th and final centre block on my Baby Jane quilt! I'm quite pleased, that after almost three years, I can finally say they're sewn! Of course, there are still the border triangles to complete, but I do have 20 of 52 done, so I'm anticipating that they'll go together quickly...I'm just SO motivated!!! Woo hoo!!!

Speaking of milestones, on June 20th, I turned 50! It was relatively painless...not as bad as I had imagined! My husband and I had a wonderful day together...he even made me a lovely birthday cake, decorated with traditional Danish flags! I also received flowers, cards and best wishes from friends and family, including a special card made by my little grandson who is 16 months old! Thank you, Axel! All in all, it was a nice day, full of sunshine! Of course, there was also breakfast on the terrace, with strawberries and champagne.....I felt quite spoiled, I must admit!

Here is a picture of the wonderful little hand-sewn quilt, made by my friend, Rosane, for my miniature wrought-iron bed! It's just adorable! Thanks so much, Rosane!

Another good friend, Else, gave me the dearest little miniature "Madame Blå" coffee can (on the kitchen table) and matching cannisters(hanging on the wall)! Thanks again, girls! I'm so lucky to have such thoughtful friends! Thanks for helping to make my birthday so special! :o)

I've also been spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to use my new iPod! I am just loving listening to audio books while hand-stitching my Jane Stickle triangles! It's so enjoyable! I'm really looking forward to taking my iPod along on our trip to Canada this summer. I still have lots to learn regarding its operation, but I'm sure I'll soon figure it out! I can also save pictures and video on it...the possibilities are endless!! What a great technological age we live in!!!

Until next time, Happy Quilting and the best of summer to you all!!!
