If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

It's My Birthday

Well bloggers, I made it to the sweet age of 53. Boy does it feel great. I really mean it. Life if good, retirement is really working out and I can sew and embroidery to my little heart's content. So "Happy Birthday" to me!
To celebrate my birthday, I called up a few of my wacky friends to go with me to Waxahachie, Texas. (Molly, Annie and Jerri) There we visited one of our favorite quilt shops....Common Threads. Once inside we each split up to do our own thing. My technique is to circle the floor area like a buzzard then dive in for the kill or carcass.......LOL........this is the beginning of the diving.
On to the Fat Quarters. A few years ago, I was not a fan of FQ's for this reason. I'd get started with a project and run out of that certain FQ. But recently, I've discovered applique, embroidery and sample blocks that only need alittle bit. So I dove in with both feet. The results was that I always try to buy a good amount of FQ's everywhere I go.........LOL
I know some of you are wondering what's with the Aunt Gracie's.......well remember I told you that I'm going to be a "GoGo" (Grandma) in November.....so I'm making Angie a rug to go in front of her changing table. Surely I can have that done by November! Wish me luck, will you? I think I'll need it.

Happy Birthday! My birthday was July 31st. I turned 54! I am excited about turning 54 because that means I can early retire in 1 more year and spend more time in my sewing room! Sounds like you had much more fun on your birthday than I did because I had to work. But I did get to go out to dinner with the family.

Happy Birthday - or Happy belated birthday as the case may be.

You get to be a grandma one month before I get to be a mother. That will make my MIL a firt time grandma & the shop-a-holic in her has kicked into high gear!
