Task of the day, January 21st

On this date 25 years ago, I walked into the hospital to have my first and only child. I remember thinking (as I waddled towards the entrance) that the next time I’ll be outside I’ll be a mom and nothing will ever be the same. Tomorrow is daughter’s 25th birthday, and I am as happy to know her as I was when we first met 25 years ago. I was right, everything did change and I discovered I had superpowers.

The only thing left to do tonight is finishing her quilt by attaching this heart. I’m thinking simple whip stitches in bright pink thread.

Grandson and I have created a piece of collaborative art and a collaged card. Pictures of both will follow when the gifts have been handed over; I really don’t want to ruin the surprise in case she stops by here.

Tonight it's also time to draw the winner of my 600th post giveaway, and blah blah random blah blah the winner is
No 42, Mimi.

Congratulations, Mimi, you’ll receive an email from me. To the rest of you, thank you for playing along!

Now onto stitching the heart; have a wonderful weekend!

Oh, I almost forgot; I did take pictures of the whole Christmas table cloth before it went into the laundry as requested. Isn’t it just perfect!


  1. It's absolutely beautiful! Love the colors.

  2. Your daughter will love the quilt...and the homemade cards from you and grandson. What a gorgeous heart to add too. Congratulations to Mimi on her win.
    Love the tablecloth.

  3. Happy birthday on the birthday of your daughter!

  4. Congratulations to the giveaway winner and to your daughter!
