Well blog friends...my big day has arrived. Yes, today at 3:30am (my mom threatened to wake me up as I did her!) I turned fifty. My husband is a year and half older than I , so I really have nothing to fear. It has been a nice day except for one thing. Today the last F-16 jet left Luke AFB for other bases. The squadron my husband has been associated with since 1987 is being moved to Elmedorf AFB Alaska. For almost 20 years, that has been our home away from home. The members our family. I have to tell you,I cried. I guess I had it in the back of my mind that our daughter would fly there as well. That is a hard dream to give up. I know she has her own story to write and I would never tell her what to do. I have full trust in her and her ability to write that story. I do know she would like the opportunity to fly a fighter to serve her country. That is her dream. So it is mine too.
I will borrow a birthday idea from Nancy. If you are Heartstrings members, will you make a block for my birthday? Donate it whereever you would send your other blocks, use it in your quilt, it is up to you. Thanks for helping me celebrate!
I have been working on Judys Hour a Day quilt and my feathered star. Nothing to post pictures of yet..but soon. I also have houseguests who will be leaving tomorrow..so I will have more time in the studio this week.
Look who found a 'pillow' in my studio!! The scamp! He is the terrorist...I mean TERRIER. He is alot of fun and is always playing with toys or his 4-legged brother.
Here HE is playing dead dog VERY well! They make it very hard to walk around in there...:::sigh:::::
Maybe this week I will get a few dog beds made for them. I might intice them to stay in ONE place if they have a nice bed to head for! Who's coming over for birthday cake!!??
