Happy Birthday to ME!

It is my birthday today - turned 56. I'm in Valentine Nebraska tonight and last night with a co-worker (and good friend Sylvia) doing some staff development work at a school just across the border in SD. So - I had to work on my birthday, didn't get to sew at all - but I did get to celebrate my birthday.

When we finished work today, we stopped in a couple of local Valentine shops. I bought myself a birthday present - a skirt and sleeveless top that may be a possible wedding outfit. Sylvia mentioned my birthday and the shop owner brought out a couple of pieces of homemade banana cake she had in the back. Yum!!

Then we out to eat. These small town local restaurants often have the BEST food. We ate in a local bar, complete with big screen TV's on every wall and full of people relaxing, but not rowdy. I had the best walleye and 2 glasses of wine!! I love walleye. Whoohooo!!

I have been finishing the binding on a small project while staying here. It's nice to have some handwork to bring along on a road trip. Picture will be posted when I get home again.

It was a pretty good birthday. Both of my girls called, and so did my husband. Voicemail is better than no call at all, right? And I got the prettiest fabric as a gift from Sylvia (also a quilter - ) so I'll have a new project to start soon. Happy birthday to me!


  1. Sounds like you had a good birthday even though you were away from home! Best wishes for many more!

  2. Happy Birthday!! It's my birthday too. I had to work and didn't get any sewing done either. But my husband gave me some money to buy more fabric. Yeah!!! So I ordered some fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop. So much fun!!
