My birthday was at the end of last month, and as luck would have it, no one was around to celebrate with me. :-(
Not being one to sit home feeling sorry for myself, I decided to make my own party with a field trip, and let everyone know all along the way IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!
Quite a few asked me if it was a "BIG" birthday-- thank God, no! But I AM old enough to be in a museum.
Yes... The New England Quilt Museum!
There is my sweet little "New England Album" on display for the LAST time. (This is what I tell Mr. SFO every time he gets the ladder out to take it off our bedroom wall. But I DO think this will be the last time.)
The show was called "The Best of New England Quilt Guilds" and each guild juried one quilt from their membership. It's quite a treat to see what "real" people are doing out there, and to get away from the show quilting world.
Here are a few of my other favorites-- does anyone else read the stories behind each quilt? I love to, so I've posted them under each quilt.
After viewing the show, you were invited to vote for a favorite...
this was mine...
Just because it makes the perfect segue way into my actual birthday party, which occurred on the weekend!
My son and his girlfriend made us all a fabulous seafood-fest complete with lobster, oysters, scallops and tuna.
We live on a pond, and here they are with the "grand-dogs" trying to get a little family portrait taken.
Here we are!
I love my crazy, happy, disorganized life!
