Birthday and...New/Old Quilt

  Good Morning Blog world:):) I hope Everyone is having an awesome day!!! 

I will start this post by saying...It's my BIRTHDAY!!!!!
When I was in Florida last week my family had a birthday party for me....
WoW!!!! 47 years old??? really?...where has the time gone:):)
Here is a journal spread I did with sharpie markers for the Month of March:)

Well...let's move on to the New/Old quilts
I was a very good girl this week....I worked on both the New/ Old

Here is how far I am on the
NEW quilt..

                                                                  Cut my papers...
                                                                               
selected my fabrics and started cutting things out.....

                                                               and started sewing....


       .....and here is where I finished for the week....will work on it over the weekend too....

                                                        Old Quilt.... is hanging on my wall.....
                                                                                     
               Right where I wanted it....YEAH!!!!! Very glad to have one UFO done!!!!

    Now to decided what (new) Old quilt project to do......hmmm....Oh, I know...I have a hexie sewing machine cover that I never finished...and really want it done...so, I will work on that this week in between working on the NEW quilt:):)

       I got this far then moved on to something else....like we all seem to do.....
I need to add more hexie's and then line it and quilt it....I will get it done!!!!

Thanks for stopping by my tiny happy place
Please have an AWESOME day
I insist!!!!

It is my birthday wish after all:):)

Treasures Found!!!!

 My Mom, Sister and I went to an antique mall while I was in Florida...and I would say I "SCORED" big time!!!!! Here is my hall from that little trip:):) I put my foot in the pic so you could get an idea for how much stuff it was:):) ....very happy camper:) 18.00 bucks

 ...and I found lots of doilies, lace, and hankies!!!!    Jumping for joy ...again. My sister even scored before she got to me...she stopped at a garage sale.....and got a whole box for 5.00 bucks!!!! It had laces, trims, and scarfs in the box.

here are the pretty scarfs she got in the box.
I just love finding awesome stuff....
Now what to do with it all....??
