gifts

Yesterday was a great day! First off, I am in a Friendship yahoo group, where we have a birthday FQ exchange... So I got all these lovely FQs from the gals in the group! I will be able to use alot of these fabrics in my pink Dear Jane quilt... :o)

The yo-yo puppy and fabric underneath it, came from my dear friend Shirley! Isn't it cute! And she's PINK! The "Stamp Basket" stamps are my gift from Jim... :o) The 3 Schnibbles patterns are from the trio and Jimmy... And the pink 1/2 yard of fabric, Lizzie picked out for me - she had her own $... :o)
Jim also ordered 2 quilting books from Amazon.com, but we chose the slow shipping to save a little, and they haven't gotten here yet! Ha! They should be here tomorrow! :o)
The only down side to the day was that we usually go to the Nascar Sprint Cup race in Brooklyn, MI in August, for our wedding anniversary... We have went 4 years in a row and have great seats, right before the start/finish line, just 6 rows up! But Jim has been sick all week (he has now been to the Doctor twice) - he has asthma, etc., and so we had to decide not to go to the race this weekend. This would have been only the 2nd time in 3-1/2 years that I would have been away from Jimmy, besides going out running errands... We could really use the alone time (well, you know, with thousands of other Nascar fans! HA!) Disappointing, but what can you do?!

Great b-day gifties! :-) Sorry your DH is sick, but maybe you can sneak away this fall? Have a happy weekend!

Awwww...sorry you had to miss the Nascar race. We have such a blast at the ones we go to. We're hoping to get to go to Richmond and Martinsville later in the fall. Weather permitting....Rick is a fair weather Nascar fan! Love your gifts!

Aw, I'm sorry you guys missed your tradition of going to the races, but I know you'll make up for it. So, you got married right around your birthday, huh? Look at you, you got so many great gifts! Your family loves you so much!

Too bad you have to miss the race. I have never been to one but would love to go sometime. I enjoy NASCAR. I am glad you had such a good birthday with lots of gifts. I sure hope you get one more and that your hubby gets better soon!
