October 13

This year I had birthday cheesecake!

I had a totally relaxing and craft filled birthday. I had a chance to play with my new darning foot for my sewing machine and attempted some free motion quilting. I need LOTS of practice.

Becky made dinner. Super yummy shrimp pasta and salad.

We listened to Pandora (did you know Pandora has 8 Halloween stations?) and inspired by Pinterest, we made glow stick jars, paper bag luminarias and we even carved pumpkins, thanks to $1.99 pumpkins at Aldi's.  We are all a bunch of big kids :)  I took photos, but the only one that turned out is the cheesecake photo above.

I love hanging out with my kids and I am blessed that they like hanging out with me! Makes me wish every day could be a birthday!

  9. Happy Late Birthday! Birthday Cheesecake! What a fabulous idea!!

    keep practicing, you'll be a pro in no time! Eventually, just just gotta say, "to heck with it...I'm going for it" and just quilt a quilt! You'll be surprised...it'll come to you. Just don't spend so much time "practicing" on quilt sandwiches and never quilt a quilt. Mine are never perfect and I always make mistakes. But even after they are washed, dried and used, I'll go back and try to find errors and it takes me a while and I know what to look for! My husband can never find them, so try not to stress too much!
