Hi friends! Thank you for your kind words and birthday wishes for Madeleine also. We had a lovely weekend. Here is the cake I made Miss Madeleine.
While our beautiful, 17 year old daughter received birthday gifts this weekend, I received pink gifts. :)
Our friend Angela sent me these beauties. Thank you Angela. I am so grateful.
Our friend Kim sent me these pretty pinks. And take a look at the lovely painting MADE BY KIM! What talent! Thank you Kim. All of these gifted, pink fabrics will be put right into my Epic Pink Tumbler Quilt. yay!
I finished reading Letters From My Father's Murderer by Laurie Coombs. An excellent read. It is a true story. A fantastic story of real forgiveness.  Thank you Julie for recommending this book.
We will head to State Fair this Friday. I may actually run to the exhibit hall to see if my two pieces are there. ;) I am very excited to see if I won a ribbon. My brother and his band, Brewgrass, are playing at the Door County Fish Boil stage. They are so very excited to be performing at the State Fair.

Thank you for stopping in today. I am so glad you did. I thanked God for YOU today. ♥

Stitching and praying,
They're sleeping now, but they wake up like clockwork when it's time for goodies
