First visit to a quilt shop.

My friend Frances' new grand daughter had her first visit to a quilt shop with us last Saturday. It was Amy's first day fabric shopping in Palmerston North since Georgia Rose was born and the wee girl slept through the whole experience! Never mind, we will get her trained up eventually.


As you know it was my 50th birthday last Monday. We went out to dinner on Saturday night to celebrate and Janice made this lovely cake for me. One candle for every 10 years. The cake was apple and cranberry and was very delicious. I can't remember the last time someone made a birthday cake for me and it was a lovely surprise - Thank you Janice. Quilting is taking a back seat very much at the moment. The weather is too hot and when I get home from work all I feel like doing is reading my book. Although I did write my President's piece for our next club newsletter last night and we have a meeting tomorrow night to form a committee for our next biennial exhibition in 2008. So I guess that kind of counts for quilting, doesn't it??

(I've just taken the exclamation mark off the title of this post. I have used one in the last 3 posts, way ott!!!!)

Yes, golden candles for the golden years... ha! Welome to "the club"! The cake looks great, embellished with mini marshmallows, too; what a dear friend to bestow upon you even more chocolate! (It looks like a chocolate feudge drizzle...) Yum.

Actually Mrs Goodneedle - I didn't even make it a fudge drizzle - just pure melted chocolate! And I picked all the yellow mini marshmellows out of the packet so now I've got a packet of white, green and pink marshmallows left - want some? Helen has a very nice bunch of friends, it was an excellent evening. She will enjoy being over 50, I think it gets easier as you get older to let the 'little things' go which makes for a less stressful life...

I'm looking forward to things getting easier - like easier to resist chocolate!! (yeah - right as the Tui ad says)

Happy birthday! It is good that you keep doing things that warrant an exclamation mark, so don't worry about continuing!
I think it is great that the baby slept through the shopping experience so Mom could enjoy her peaceful time.
