Happy Birthday To Me!!

I always say that I am blessed more than I deserve and it is true.  Today marks my 55th birthday.....wow!  I can't believe that I am actually that age.

I received several new pincushions to add to my collection.  If you've not read about my pincushion collection you can read about it and see it here on my blog. Shelia's Pincushion Collection

First I received a custom made penguin pincushion from my bee friend Sue.  Isn't she precious....and of course you know I love pink!! 

Next my husband picked up some antique pincushions for me. The chicken, a settee, and the chair pincushion/thread holder.  These are great!!  I love seeing what quilters and seamstresses have used to store their pins for years. 
Happy Quilting,

My Chicks Have Arrived

Today our chicks flew in from Iowa.  They are precious little "peeps".  I can almost see them change overnight.  So cute.  Several of us at work went in together and purchased a large group of Brown Egg Layers and split the group.  As they mature hopefully I will be able to better identify them.  For now they look a lot alike and nothing like they will when mature.
Always a use for crumbs of fabric......hehehe.

Our little flock will be providing us with eggs very soon........well in about 20 weeks maybe.

Happy Quilting,
