I received this very unique graduation gift from my friend Brenda. She is an avid chicken raiser, egg collector, and quilt pattern designer. She has a flock of Rhode Island red laying hens and I received a dozen fresh eggs from her flock in a basket with a chicken card and a chicken.
Thank you Brenda!

Today I received my final results from my College course. I received an Honours Diploma in Graphic Design. It only took 54 years to achieve this! Needless to say, I am very pleased.

This is a quilting pattern that a friend of mine designed. The pattern is called Angels Watching Over Me. I just got it and I am so looking forward to making it. The picture does not do it justice. It looks amazing in real life. The redwork in this quilt is amazing. My friend Brenda showed this at "Show and Tell" at our Quilters' Guild. Brenda is a pattern designer and has her own website. There is a link to her site on my sidebar to the left. Among Brenda's Quilts.

Last night was one of our dinner and sewing gatherings. Michelle was the host and she cooked us a wonderful meal with appetizers, a great main course and delicious turtle brownies for desert and fresh strawberries. I don't think I have ever seen strawberries that big in all my life. We enjoyed our dinner, then did a little sewing afterwards. We are all quilters and have been getting together at each other's homes every couple of months, for dinner and sewing and have been doing this for about five years. Thanks Michelle, it was wonderful :)

The other day was DH's birthday so I had this cake made special for him. I took him out to dinner to Montana's Cookhouse and we had all you can eat ribs. Needless to say, we both overate and we didn't have a piece of cake until the 11 o'clock news. The ribs were really good, but we both agreed that they were not as good as Henry's ribs. They are the best! Lots of birthday cards too from our family members. It was a great day! Happy Birthday :)
