I needed a new pair of scissors. I received two! My daughter also bought the little dish and polka dot case in one of my favorite colors.
(Quilt: Papa's Shirts, Mama's Dresses Doll Quilt Club )
Sue B. gave me some beautiful antique quilt blocks.
She has a set of blocks as well and we are going to put them together and make matching quilts : )
You may remember that my daughter gave me a little "birdie" dish last year too.
Perfect for pins.
I love pretty little ceramic dishes for my sewing bits and bobs and rings and earrings and such.
Karen gave me a mini blue and white quilt patterned after the blue and white quilt she made for her challenge -
I got a real kick out of this tiny book my son bought for me as a joke - taken from an actual book on manners for wives published in 1913.
Lots of good tips on how I can be a better wife (if he can possibly imagine a better wife, haha) -
Honestly, I NEVER tell him about or bore him with the dreadful crimes our servants have committed during the day. Wouldn't dream of it.
Where am I all the time?? The older I get, the harder it is to tell some days . . . .
My husband made me promise I would sit by the fire with him and sing to him every night. He said he would absolutely LOVE that . . . .
Julia made me a pretty blue necklace.
I got the mini Keurig I wanted.
All in all it was a good day. And, if you are rolling your eyes about now, I promise I will NOT mention my birthday ever again. Matter of fact, I might not even have one next year . . .
