I have been a Bad Blogger

OK OK so I am sorry I admit it I have been a bad blogger!!!

I have been so busy over the last couple of weeks that I have barely had time to breathe but I am here now and have tons to share!

First of all, my birthday give aways were a blast, thank you all who participated!

I did have a wonderful birthday, spent the day (two actually) shopping with Morgen, she got me at least 50 fat quarters, all of them wonderful!

I had a very nice dinner with Morgen and Hubby, at one of the nicest places in town, with a steak to die for. My only compliant about dinner was when they tried to wedge my fat back side into the little chair with wooden arms, OUCH, I ask to be moved to a booth, there was no way I could manage a couple of house with those arms digging into my thighs!

I took a ton of photos of the most beautiful quilts, we have a lot of very talented quilters in our area.

I will post a slide show at the bottom of this post, look for the picture of Torrie's Bento Box quilt, with the huge ribbon, Yep, she won first place in the juniors division!

And I got to spend time with Art and Sue from the Suzy Q Quilt Frames booth, stay tuned because I will be doing an entire post about Art and Sue, two of the nicest folks in the quilting world!

So, I did not take pictures of all of the quilting goodness that Morgen got me, I will just say that I am now a Fat Quarter Queen, I spent almost the entire week I had off from work in my sewing room, no not quilting, but cleaning and putting things in order and folding fabric, my poor little room had gotten to be quite the mess, so yes mom I cleaned my room!

I am happy it did though, I managed to dig out my quilt frame and play with some of the templates that I got for myself on my birthday, I will talk a bit more about those in my Suzy Q post!

So since I know you guys are just dying to see, here are some of the pictures from the show....





Well, I hope you enjoyed the quilts as much as I did, I promise to be a better blogger this next week!
Till then, have a great day,
Ginny

Ginny, it sounds like you had a wonderful birthday.
Thank you for a wonderful slide show. It is so much fun to see Torrie so proud next to her blue ribbon quilt. Congratulations on her huge ribbon.
Please do not feel bad and think that you are a bad blogger. The slide show, which I have watched twice, make up for all the posts that you have missed.

Hi Ginny, Missed you, glad you're back and that the birthday was extra special and love all the pictures from the quilt show - I was such a dunce and didn't take my camera along and there were many that had me just wishing I was that talented.

I do believe I recognize those toes and PJs holding up Torrie's quilt at the top of the page!!!

Yep, you should recognize those little toes as they belong to one of your little ones! She was kind enough to hold one side while Ry held the other since it was to big to hang on the shower like I normally do!
The funny bit, you are the second person to mention the cute little toes!
Hey, how did you find my blog?!? Did I show you? Crud, I don't remember if I did or not gosh getting old sucks!
