Birthday :)

I turned 58 today and did some stash building. This is the fabric I bought at Busy Bee Quilts in Edgewood. I get a 20% discount for shopping on my birthday, but this fabric was 30% off so I bought 3 yards of each.

Then I went into Albuquerque and went to Quilt Works where I get a 25% discount when I shop on my birthday and had a $100 gift certificate from my son and daughter-in-love. I bought this lovely assortment of fabric which adds up to 26 yards... so much for stash busting, but, after all, it IS my birthday and it only comes once a year.

Since I worked at Busy Bee Quilts while the owners were at Quilt Market, I have a lovely store credit of $240... which I will spend at a later date. Too many other things going on today to be able to spend the time I needed to adequately shop till I dropped :) Received phone calls from Marilyn in Portland, my sister Pat in Sebastapol California, my brother Dan, my daughter Jess, my friend Barbara and my dad.
