Happiest of Birthdays!

May all your quilting seams be 1/4" and all your blocks end up the right size! :dave: No, no, just teasing you.

May you have health, happiness and all the fabric and thread your heart desires!

Thanks everybody! I have been having a pretty good day. Everyone was home all day due to the ice storm and lucky us we only lost power for a little bit last night. Several of my neighbors lost it for the whole night.
I am off to have my birthday cake right now!:nah:

Another birthday greeting for you.:bday: I had to wait until after you'd posted your response because I wasn't entirely sure it was you and not a different Gina.

How did you get away with your birthday not showing up down the bottom.:nc: This is what confused me and made me wait.

So now that the day has finished, the cake's been eaten, the mess cleaned up (hopefully)... What did you get?

Belated birthday greetings, Gina! Have been working on the RW&U swap like you and not actually reading all the posts. Sounds like you had a great day!

I got an ice storm!
My hubby is a procrastinator. He normally takes the kids out on my birthday or the night before to shop. That didn't happen so I got the ironing cover for my cutting table that he and I bought last weekend. My inlaws sent me money, so I took it to Walmart yesterday and bought yards and yards of fabric at 75% off. Got some for 25 cents a yard :shock:. I bought about ten yards of that.
Really the best gift that day was having everyone home and not haiving to run, run, run! We sat around playing PS2 and Board games.
Today I have to bake a cake and wrap presents for DS #1. It is crazy having birthdays two days apart. I try my hardest to keep them very separate but sometimes it seems like we just party for a week straight. He wants a triple chocolate Star Wars cake time to put away the fabric and get out the Wilton stuff! UUGH! Sometimes I hate being creative:bg:!
