Birthday Present for ... Me!

Yes, I turned 43 this weekend... not particularly happy about it, but hey! Can't really avoid getting older can we? I did have a wonderful birthday however... lunch with my mom, sister, brother and all of the kiddies. Found out I was going to be an auntie again! :-) Very exciting stuff.

Then for dinner Saturday night, we had friends over at the cottage, ordered pizza, had cake and just chilled for most of the evening. I was turning 43 after all... I'm way past the all-night parties!

Over the weekend, I also finished quilting Girly Squares and yes - this one I'm keeping for myself and calling it my birthday present.

Girly Squares - made with 1/2 Jelly Roll of Giddy by Sandy Gervais

I quilted Girly Squares with straight-line stitching across all of the blocks (there are a few puckers in there, but who cares - this one was for me!  I got a little lazy with the pin basting I think...)

I can't help adding another picture - I love this quilt!  :-)

Oh and here's me blowing out the candle we had to "recycle" from my 8 year-old's birthday party last week... I guess my sweetie forgot to get candles!  :-)

The cake was delicious!

Linking up at Sew Many Ways for So Darn Crafty!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
