Happy Birthday, Ellen!

I have to hurry and get this posted before midnight, as today is my beautiful daughter Ellen's birthday. Isn't she cute! She will not be happy with this picture, but it was taken on her 21st birthday and I think it is so cute.

Happy Birthday, Ellen, I love you!

What have I been doing? Working mostly and some play. I have been putting together a pizza box round robin that starts at then end of this month. Here is my center block. I am doing this with some friends at work (Carol, Cheryl, Katie and Katie)

I have also been working on the Noah's Ark BOM - just two more blocks to do. How are you all coming Cathi, Cheryl and Carol???? (Hmmm...these pictures are not exactly in the same scale.)

And I recieved this oh so cute prize in the mail from Cherri over at Cherry House Quilts . Thank you very much !

If you notice on my right side bar, I have added a list of blog reading schedule. I find that I just can't keep up with my blog reading, so I have put myself on a schedule. This will be about 18 to 20 blogs a day (if everyone posts every week - highly unlikely), which is manageable and will keep me in touch with everyone at least once a week. Sundays will be my post day, and hopefully posting once a week will keep you all interested and coming a back to say hi.
Happy Stitchin!

No, I haven't gotten anywhere with my Noah's Ark, thanks for asking! But I've come up with a new plan for it. I think it will have to wait for January, though!

HB to Ellen. We really have to get her and Ben together.

Love your Noah's Ark BOM and I think your blog reading schedule is a very clever idea!
You go girl!

Yes....she is a cutie patootie!!

Looks like you have been busy...I love that you shared your blogging
schedule...I have considered some sort of schedule myself...I have often wondered how others seem to leave comments on EVERY blog and still get as much
done as they post on their blogs!
