Thanks everyone for your birthday greetings. I had a good day.
My m-i-l decided to give me one of her sergers !!!!!!! I've been wanting one of my own for years. Now I can sew away on all the flannel I have for some service projects. Britain has been having postal strikes so my mother told me yesterday I will have to wait a while for their gift :)
I now have two new quilt books to drool over. "Next Steps in Altered Photo Artistry" by Beth Wheeler and "Dream Landscapes, Artful Quilts With Fast -Piece Applique" by Rose Hughes.
