quilts and fabric - good way to celebrate...

It was very nice of the young clerk at the grocery store to say happy birthday and "you don't look that old at all! Wow, 50!" (For those of you outside of Georgia grocery stores card everyone no matter how old they look...) It was a great day though. My DH surprised me with a trip up to Charlotte last night. Then this morning I got to see the show at the North Carolina Quilt Symposium then trip down to Mary Jo's (with his credit card in my hand...oh, my.)

The quilts at the show were really interesting. I loved this wall hanging with the horses...
and this one with the william morris fabrics....
and this one that got an award for wearable...I got a lot of reproduction fat quarters at M.Jo's and some yardage for backings. Since I had already shopped at the show I didn't do near as much damage as I usually do. At the show I got some Japanese fatquarters, a few books, and this very fun bag....
Now off to water the garden...it was over 95 degrees today and even the daylillies look a bit parched....

Pedicures and purple polish and pincushions and gorgeous day lilies and fabulous fabrics made into bags?! If that's 50...I will be looking forward to it! ;-) Happy (belated) Birthday wishes to you, Siobhan!

My son toyed with me by showing me the article in the Charlotte paper about the NCQS. Unfortunately I could not go this year. What did you think? Love that bag!
