You all know how I (as most people) value my weekends :) It's a time I need for me, my family and my stitching and quilting. This weekend I did hardly any quilting and stitching and yet I had a great weekend!
First of all, there was this motorcycle tour organized by colleagues. And I had the opportunity to join them! As it was my first time I didn't own any appropriate clothing, but lucky me, I could borrow the right suit and helmet. So off we went on Saturday for a tour of 150 km.
Second, I had a long birthday party on Sunday. Some visitors came in on Saturday evening, the whole bunch of friends visited us on Sunday. I have been spoiled with some great gifts, but there are only two of them I mention here.
A week ago DH and children asked what I wanted as a birthday present and I told them it was a quilt hoop stand. And they gave me permission to order ond LOL. It arrived some days before it was my birthday, do I had to control my curiosity.
Another gift was a very special one, as it came from eldest DD. She didn't know what to buy for me and she didn't want to ask because I would say I needed nothing and I like everything she comes up with.
So she visited my blog and scrolled through the blogposts and that's were she discovered the link to my favorite quiltshop. She took a picture of me with her to that quiltshop and showed it to the owner, telling her: this is my mother, do you know what kind of fabric she likes?
And yes, the owner does! So I was surprised by a perfect FQ and a gift certificate. Isn't that a great benefit of having a blog?
Now, at the end of this story I have to show another finished block of My Tweets. That's all I did this week.
