"It says Don't Open Til Your B-day" He has that special way of looking over his glasses, sorta encouraging me cuz he is dying to know, yet at the same time ready to judge me if I do open it. I left it on the table, and went up to my sewing room for 1 1/2 hrs. Came down and it was still sitting there waiting, taunting me, so I picked it up and gave it a little shake, it is kinda heavy! Sigh! I sat it back down and went to bed. Sigh! All the way to Saturday???. . .Big Sigh!! Oh what could it be?
This morning, the box was still sitting right there on the table waiting for me, I just smiled and thought isn’t she something? Who would know? Boy, I'd better wait. So I picked it up and shook it, just a little, one more time, and boy it does have some weight to it. I then headed out to the kitchen counter with it where I have my utility scissors (just in case). Instead, I found my camera and took a picture to post so the rest of you can wait with me. So now we will all wait until Saturday. Hurts don't it? I will check back tomorrow to show you what's inside.
My Secret Angel is a big teaser!!! Isn't she fun? I agree, there is a lot of love being sent around here. Thank you so much Sweet Angel for the fun surprise. And after you just sent me that wonderful anniversary present a couple of weeks ago. I am so lucky to have you thinking of me.
‘til tomorrow. . .

I got the neatest package from my SQA. Thank you so much.
So many really unique things. Just in time to make some fun gifts for the great grands and adult children. I will use the little hearts on some quickie Valentine dolls. The marking pen will come in handy for the nautical flags I am making for our son's sailboat, it a birthday present for his 45th birthday on the 27th. The pretty note pad will help me keep organized, I like the way it has a stand and the pretty Valentine material is darling and going to be part of either a quilt or doll clothes. I am going to use the heart buttons on some kitchen towels for both of my daughters' birthday presents also this month (50th and 51st).
Boy it is hard to believe that my kids will soon become senior citizens. I remember teasing my MIL when she turned 55 and qualified to get a discount at a restruant we used to eat at.
Thank you again, SQA, You are the BEST!

I opened my birthday box this morning, but I wasn't able to post a message w/picture until now. OMG!!! My Angel is so generous. I just wanted to call her up and say thank you for all the great quilty stuff that she put in the box. It was sooooo worth the wait!!! Inside I found a great quilting magazine, sets of home made cards for me to use, absolutely love that idea; there was a very cool steno note pad with a sort of card on the front with a great pen; a beautiful Moda jellyroll, along with a wonderful book Layer Cake, Jelly Roll, and Charm Quilts by Pam & Nicky Lintott. Wow! I was giddy with surpise and excitment when I was opening all of the gifts. DH and best friend sat and watch in amazement as I opened one thing after another.
Dear Angel: I was so taken aback by your thoughtfulness and your generosity. I find it so hard to imagine that a complete stranger would go out of her way so much to bless me. I just want you to know that the end of the year seems very far away, but I do look forward to finding out your identity at that time so I can personally thank you. Also, it is like you somehow know things, I'm not sure how, but the Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm book is the book that I need for the retreat that I am going to on Feb 19-21, I had planned to just buy the book there, but now I get a sneak preview. I will also be using the jelly roll to make the quilt on that weekend. I will post a picture of my progress when I return. Thank you again.
Linda
