Happy birthday to me! AGAIN!

Me and Kevin
Enjoying Maryland Blue Crabs!

Dinner out with a new friend....met up with Kelly from Chicago, a friend of Kevin's who he hasn't seen since high school 32 years ago.  He met up with her last year on Facebook.  Kelly seems to travel here a great deal on business so hopefully we will meet again!  We finally got to celebrate my 50th birthday by getting crabs.  We were going to get them on my actual birthday but it had to wait until now.  It was worth waiting for.  My absolute favorite meal! 

Our children Jimmy and Sarah tagged along! 
(Paul and Matt could not join us)

I have been busy hand quilting!  Here is a peak of what I have been working on.  Can't wait to show you the finished product...

the pink quilt for my Aunt Beth I blogged about here...

******Did you notice I missed last week?  Sorry, but with the loss of my mom, last week was difficult.  I am doing much better this week and starting to feel back to normal.  Missing my mom very much but knowing she is no longer suffering.  I have some of her projects she was working on that I plan on finishing sometime in the near future.  Right now I am trying to finish hand quilting the pink quilt I blogged about earlier for my Aunt Beth who just finished her radiation treatment for breast cancer.  Can't wait to surprise her with it!  I am going to sign the quilt from me and my mom since my mom gave me lots of suggestions and ideas for the quilt.  We conspired together to make it.  My Aunt will be happy the quilt came from me and her sister (my mom).  Hope to share that with you soon!

Rest in Peace Mom! Love you forever!

Me and Mom

Lost my mom today.  She was a strong and creative woman.  She had been sick with bone cancer for about 5 years.  Today she lost her battle.  We will miss her!  Much of my love of quilting comes from her teaching me how to sew at an early age.  I will carry on the tradition of quilting that she has taught me!  Love you MOM!!!!!

My mom had been on oxygen for 5 years 24/7
