It's been 30 years

It was 30 years ago that I signed up for a night school quilting course. The course was to run for 10 weeks and I figured I would probably miss the very last class since I was pregnant at the time expecting child number three. Well, she came early (the girls were early, the boys late) and so I missed the last two classes.

And here's the birthday girl with flowers that her little sister sent a day early to her work. Today, the birthday girl is taking a day off work and going for a 30 mile run around the city with her boyfriend and a friend that came all the way from Portland, Oregon just to celebrate. The temperature is supposed to be a mild 12 C (54 F) with some light rain.


  1. Congratulations to the birthday girl from a mother of a birthday boy on the same day!

  2. Happy birthday to your dear daughter!
    I missed many of your posts )o: Love the blue trees painted to the wall. They look real!
    Look forward to your napkin and what inspired you.
