This week I'm celebrating a birthday that ends in a zero. It's not so bad, I've found, when a surprise party is involved!!
My amazing daughter, Megan, (who's name should be Martha Stewart) created color coordinated party decorations in grey, yellow and black. They were hung strategically around the dining room of the historic home recently renovated by my son, Drew and his wife, Lauren.
She secretly gathered lots of pictures from my childhood and early married life to hang around the room with clothes pins and ribbon.
The room was full of some of my best friends as well as my lovely children and grandchildren.
She even had cute party favors for everyone!
To say I was surprised is an understatement!
At the urging of Megan, I began blogging on my birthday two years ago. At the time, I had no idea what an impact that decision would have on my life! The inspiration, encouragement and friendships that have come about through Lollyquiltz delight me every day. Thank you all for reading my jabbering...without you, I wouldn't have any reason to write.Your comments keep me going. To celebrate both my birthday and my blogiversary let's have a Give Away of 3 fat quarters of Sugar Hill by Tanya Whelan in a favorite color combination plus a quilt pattern designed and written by yours truly a few years ago...
If you would like to enter, leave a comment telling me your favorite color combo right now. For a second chance, leave a separate comment letting me know that you are a follower of Lollyquiltz. Be sure that I have access to your email address for a valid entry. I'll choose a winner on Friday morning. Thanks again for making this such a fun hobby!
**The give away is now closed.
