About a month ago Kelli broke into the blog and suggested to all of you that you could help me celebrate my big 50th birthday by sending me a card and quilt blocks. (Here’s a link if you missed that) Well they’ve been coming in….
Initially when I discovered what Kelli did I wasn’t really happy. I didn’t want you to be spending your quilting time on me. Then when the blocks started coming in, I’ve been loving it.
People have been sending a block…or a block and note…or a block and some doll patterns….or a block and goodies for the kiddos. My favorite thing of all is the notes that are sent to me.
One note came from a reader who lived near Pocahontas, Iowa. Well my dad was born in Pocahontas. His family moved soon after but I still have family that lives that way. I love making connections.
Another note came that said the reader so enjoyed my blog and it was the ray of sunshine she looked forward to each morning….ah..how sweet! I feel so humbled.
I say this again and again, I so wish I knew about all of you like you know about me. That’s why I so look forward to each and every opportunity to connect with a blog reader.
Other notes have encouraged me to not worry about 50 and that it’s just a number.
I’ve said that I’ve been worried about how I’d take the big 5-0. I didn’t know how I’d like being 50 because for me, it’s been one of those milestone birthdays that tell me it’s time to grow up and act my age….Getting all of the blocks and your sweet notes have been helping me LOTS.
Thanks to all who sent blocks to me. Once they all come in I promise I’ll spread them all out so that you can get a look at them….they are all so different and interesting. I have a few more days until the 14th and so far…I’m doing it thanks to the help of all of you and your great shower of cards and blocks.
