It was a very Happy Birthday!

I was going to say last Monday was my birthday, but oops it was Monday before last...where has the time gone? Anyone? Please? I want to send a big thank you out for all the birthday wishes and cards :) And a very special thank you to my sweet friend Sharon for these awesome gifties that arrived well in advance of my big day.Here's Sarah modeling the shirt she sent me that has now become my favorite walking shirt :)Cute pumpkin candleYummy smell good potpourriMerry Halloween sign that goes sooo cute with my cat and pumpkin "sticks"LOVE these fat quartersthis is an adorable bag, it was hard to get a good picture though.Thank you so much Sharon, I love them all! And I miss you sooo much!!

Nancy and I are birthday twins and she is the good twin because she sent me this cute little card holder in time for our birthday and I still haven't sent hers, that makes me the evil twin...I don't like the sound of that. How about "bad" twin? Inside was a starbucks card--thank you so much Nancy!
My kiddos got me some great pressies too! I was very impressed with the beautiful wrapping, thanks to Hannah, Daniel's girlfriend :) So impressed I never took pictures unwrapped :(This present was from Hannah, see the straws? I have a thing about straws lol!! I had to share this Halloween picture of Sarah and her best friend dressed up as Tweedlee Dee and Tweedle Dum.I will be back soon with that tutorial for the Authentic quilt that I have been promising a few of you...I haven't forgotten.

November Charming Girl Club goals

First off I want to say thank you to Kelly who hosts Charming Girl Club. I won the October drawing for a $25 gift certificate to her store Cotton Charm Quilts
and I can't wait to go spend it!!!

Secondly I want to say sorry for not answering comments lately, my email wigged out and would crash if I typed too fast or tried to type more than one or two lines. So even the comments I did manage to answer were very short, sooo frustrating!!! I finally got a new email and it seems to be working, I'm crossing my fingers that it's not my computer.

O.k. on to my November CG goals.
1. Quilt and bind Oct. Schnibbles
2. Make November Schnibbles top3. Put borders on this Christmas top4. Make the remaining stars for this quilt (I think I need 11 more)5. Get binding on my Holly Jolly quilt6. Finish my Authentic quilt top
6. Get the blocks cut for a new quilt top with this Christmas fabric7. Do something with this jelly roll from last year (I took it apart and then stuffed it in a bin so it needs some ironing lol)8. Make a quilt from my Figgy Pudding fat quarter bundle that I have misplaced temporarily. I have also misplaced the pattern. They are together somewhere in a "very safe place".

O.k. I think that's it for now. I'm going to go check out what everyone else is up to!
Have a great weekend!!
