Quilt With Us

Wow, so much is going on today! First and foremost - we're celebrating Laraine's 50th birthday! Her actual day is over the holiday weekend, so we picked today for potluck and general mayhem.
Here's Laraine with her mourning veil :)

Then it was the re-launch of Mari's Gifty Galore Quilt Along. If you haven't seen her FREE pattern yet, then hop on over to her group - it's an adorable peppermint pincushion.

Finally, it seems to be baby day here! We have a sister catalog, KnitPicks, that often has baby sweaters that require adorable models. In they came! On the left is Melissa with Alice and next to her is Jenna with baby Ella. Aren't they adorable?

Thanks everyone. The veil was my idea...sorta poking fun at the whole thing. Doesn't bother me at all to be turning 50. I said I was "mourning" my mis-spent youth!

Diane--yeah, my DH is a keeper (he's MUCH older than me--7yrs) He made the fruit kabobs pictured and brought them in special and this weekend we are working on converting the "junk" room into my sewing studio as my present. Can't wait.

How cute!!! I wonder why we pick 50 for black balloons ...veils etc....half way there if you live to be a 100...fun fifty...feisty fifty....free fifty....just think of the wisdom you have that you did not have last year...(smile!!!) all a matter of the mind....wait when you hit 60 and then 70....the amazing thing is that our mind does not change....I think I am younger except than when I catch a pic of myself in a mirror it tells a different stroy....enjoy your weekend having fun!!!

I agree BJ - we are very lucky to work in such a fun environment! Here's some more fun from Laraine's potluck!
Here's my hot dish (not warmed up yet).
The birthday girl with her DH, and the little bear with a scythe.

I think you have about the best work environment there is. How fun. It has to be wonderful to looking forward to going to work. Not all are blessed with that.
