B is for...

BIRTHDAY: Yesterday was my birthday. Another year older, wiser, and definitely more hip.
BUDDIES: I spoke at my guild last night, the fabulous Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild and they celebrated with me, cupcakes, singing and quilty friends. It doesn't get much better than that. I got handmade gifts...it's funny how much I love the handmade and I never get anything like that. It's great to have friends who sew!

BLOG: I was thinking last night how this blog has been such a wonderful addition to my life. I appreciate all of you who come to visit and are a part of it with me.

BOYS: The three guys in my life, my two sons and my wonderful hubby. Life is rich because of all of you.

BLESSINGS: These are too many to list or to count. Each day is a blessing.

and finally B is for BINDINGS: of which I still need to do.

Happy, happy birthday, Jacquie. You have definitely enriched my life in the past year. Thank you so much and I'm looking forward to much inspiration in the year to come.

Cathy said...

You, Melody Johnson, Crazy Mom Quilts, Robin Ferrier, Lisa Call and sooo many others are the reason I am so happy dyeing, sewing wonky and have generally so much joy in creating with my hands, heart and spirit. Thank you for enabling me to just have fun and not worry about "coloring within the lines"
You bless me!

Sharon said...

Glad you had a great day with friends, hand made goodies, and family.

Happy Birthday!! You should know that your blog has changed my life, too. I found your blog in April and I've been reading (and re-reading ever since). It was your tutorial that guided me through my first wonky quilt for my son and sparked in me a real passion for quilting. I had never heard of modern quilting but knew that I didn't want to quilt calico stars forever. Now, just 5 months later, I have completed 4 lap size quilts and I'm starting my first queen size improv one. This one is taking a little longer than using a pattern but I really enjoy creating as I go. Last month, I gave away my basic machine and bought a new Bernina and now (since my career of 19 years is in jeopardy with this economy) I've decided to open an online quilt shop. There seems to be more and more pop up so maybe I'm late to the party. Anyway, I'm following my passion. I truly have never been so inspired or fulfilled by any other hobby than modern quilting! My question is this: If you were to shop online, what kind of fabrics would you like to see available? Also, since you can shop at so many places, what would make you want to shop at one place over another? Price? Shipping? Generous cuts? Quick response? Service? I ask because I'm trying to decide how my store can stand out with so many other great shops out there. Oh, I forgot to mention, I'm a KC girl and I'll see you at the October MQG meeting as I've finally freed up my Thursday nights to attend the meetings! I can't wait!! I would so appreciate your input as I really respect your opinion. I also understand if you would rather not comment. Either way, I'm a huge fan and can't wait to learn more about quilting from you blog and the guild. THANKS!

Happy, happy birthday! Thank YOU for having your blog.

We were the lucky ones to attend your presentation at the meeting the other night. It was truly inspiring. Your heart is inside of your quilts and that makes them so special. Thanks Jacquie for all that you do.
