Let The Celebrating Begin...

Just look at all these beautiful faces! These are my pals at Books a Million. (Krisann was absent, and sorry for cutting you off the image, Linda!) When I arrived last night (Dolphin Island quilt in hand), they had a card and box of chocolates waiting for me.

Let the Birthday celebration
officially begin!!!

My friend, Ellen, also gifted me with her well-used, hand crafted collection of doilies and dresser scarves. She made each one of them, and they'll be treasured by me for a long, long time. Sorry I can't say the same for the chocolates!

Thank you, girls, for my gifts and your sweet card. You really surprised me! They thought they were pretty clever, remembering that I like to stretch out my partying for at least a week each year! ((My pal, Tammy, reads my blog, so she was actually the ring leader!) You're just the best, Tammy!

I finished binding Dolphin Island last night, so I can move another project from the To Do List to the Completed List. My chenille project is next. I'll share photos tomorrow.

Add me to those wishing you a Happy Birthday! One of the perks of getting older is we get to stretch our birthday celebrations to continue on through the weeks. Enjoy the attention and have a good time. I'm eager to see the chenille project. ;-)

Yes, celebrations are supposed to last much longer as we get along. We know how to embrace our age and enjoy our friends and family for the cherished memories they are. Happy birthday Miss Donna.
Chocolates and doilies??? Good thing you have two hands so the two didn't get mixed together. :o)
