    Goodies galore!!!

    Last Friday (Nov.2nd) was my b-day.......I turned 50 .......looks around..*whispers* hubby thinks I am 29.

    Well he spoiled me once again. And I am not ashamed to say so, he does this often.
    Anyways, we went to the computer store to have his computer built. He surprised me by telling the tech to build me one too! So now I have a new custom built computer coming on Friday. We stopped at Hancock's on Saturday and he savagely threw me into the store with my visa card tied to my finger. I swear!!! And I was instructed to buy fabric...oh the horror of it all, surrounded by hundreds of bolts of fabric. And I was expected to choose some of it to take home !!!
    After managed to drag myself out of the store, we were off to the Olive Garden for a b-day dinner. And being the practical one (between the cat and i) I got a new vacuum also. I don't expect Kola to use it anytime soon. She would rather lay on the back of the recliner and stare at it until her eyelids got to heavy.

    Now for the pictures of my shopping ordeal. The 3rd picture shows my favorite fabric choices. I am thinking maybe a churn and dash and a 9 patch combo.

    p.s.
    I would have posted sooner but the internet was out all weekend. They just finished working on it around 10 this evening. They were in and out the door for 6 hours!!

    What a wonderful birthday you must have had! Your fabrics are delicious! Can't wait to see what beautiful things you make from them! My birthday is a week from Wednesday and I am being whisked off for a day of fabric and antique shopping in Shipshewanna. I didn't get to choose this expedition, it was chosen for me; however, I will not have to be dragged, kicking and screaming!!!

    I know, what a way to be treated. I have to go through this on a monthly basis....getting thrown into a fabric store, taken to dinner. New computers come around every 4 to 5 years.....lol

    oh and the vacuum.....Kola says no comment........haha

    Oh you really made me miss my dh he has been gone now for almost 6 years and I miss him everyday. He alsways treated me like a queen and supported my expensive hobbies, funny whem he was alive I never quilted my sister in law did and he always said why don't you start quilting. Saturday was my bd I took myself to a beed show and bought way to much then out to eat followed by a fabric shopping spree. Don't really have the money but how often do you have a bd anyway that was my therapy for turning 67. Things will be pretty tight for a month or so but I did enjoy myself. Sure do miss dh

    I love hearing about your birthdays - I recall that your husband has spoiled you in the past with grand birthdays filled with shopping for fabric and or sewing machines and such. What a great hubby to spoil you so - Happy 29th (wink, wink) - I have been celebrating my 25th Birthday for the last 22 years - and I am lucky to have a hubby that spoils me too.
    Sounds like you had the perfect birthday again.
