    Birthday Wallhangings

    My friends from where I worked before retirement get together each week for breakfast and lots of coffee. I wanted to make them a "special" card and decided to do small wallhangings for their cards, each having something to do with them. I have done paper-pieced coffee cups with the center reflecting something about them. One has a picture of a Gardner which my friend Linda is my favorite gardening buddy and the 2nd whose birthday is this month is a member of the Greek Orthodox church and the praying hands reminded me of Cathy. Thank you for looking.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
