It's My Party

This weekend DH threw a birthday party for me.  My birthday wasn't until today the 26th, and it was a milestone birthday!  The MIL, Aunt Jennie, the oldest daughter and SIL and their 2 daughters, and the youngest daughter and her 4 children came to help celebrate! 

DH was forbidden from black balloons, any types of signs mentioning my age.  How did he handle this?  The birthday cake he ordered said Happy 49th Birthday +1.  Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of it before it was cut. 

I received many lovely gifts including these two mug rugs/pot holders from my mother which she made.  I know it is silly but I love home made gifts!

I also received a couple of gift certificates, a couple of quilting magazines, special cards made by the kids too.

I want to make a Swoon quilt  very girly with pinks, roses, whites, aqua.  I have been collecting bits and pieces.  I think I need some solids to match, I already have my background which is my one of my favorites a white on white polka dot.

I ordered this yummy strawberry and gingham from an Etsy shop from Japan.  Love!

I had to work a double today early morning, then an overnight. BLECH!  No date out with DH for me.  (Big sad face).  I have a couple of more crazy schedule days which translates to late night or overnight.  Before I get to have a dinner out with the love of my life which is not pizza!


  1. Happy Birthday Colette! Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday. Best wishes for a great year ahead.

    Love your strawberry gigham fabric. Can't wait to see all your fabric for the swoon quilt. Sounds beautiful!

  2. Happy birthday Colette!! Enjoy your day even if you have to work!

  3. Surely the cake was meant to say 39 + !? Happy birthday anyway.

  4. Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a wonderful celebration with family, and I'm sure you'll eventually get your night out with your DH! Love that fabric!

  5. Happy Birthday Colette! My big one is next month. Sounds like you had a great day. And you can stretch out your birthday fun for at least another week or so!

  6. Happy belated Birthday! Sounds like you had a very nice birthday.

  7. I was without internet, and just saw that I missed your birthday! Happy belated birthday, sounds like you had a great day!
