Just numbers... really!

Thanks to all of you for your good wishes!!!!!

Okay, so when I posted yesterday, I pondered my words for some time before I published.... why you ask?

You see, when you are still an infant, before your first birthday, you are in your first year of life... following, before you reach your second birthday, you are in your second year of life....

Soooooo.... before I reach my 48th birthday, I am in my 48th year of life and so, I am really only 47 still!!! Please don't rush me! LOL!!!

I did have a really pleasant day, although somehow Upstate NY has skipped spring all together and jumped right into summer!!!! This is what the car read at about 4 PM yesterday...
sure is hot for a late April day!
We have 5 of these Hostas out front of the house and they are bloomin' and green!!!!
green for spring!
I think, though, we are due for a return to more spring-like weather tomorrow!

I did finish another dotty Dear Jane block (my second using reverse applique) bringing the total to 16 blocks!!!! (only five million more!!!)

  3. Hi. I just came across your blog and see you are living in New York. I know this is a big state, but I wonder if you can point out any quilt shops or fabric shops in Buffalo. My friends and I are heading out from Toronto, and crossing the border on May 11th for our first, 2 day, USA shop hop. AND a big Happy Birthday!
