My Birthday Celebration Giveaway!


Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.
 ~Larry Lorenzoni

Today should be a good day!  Today should be a happy day!  Why?  Today is MY birthday!!!!  Another year older and maybe a year wiser - but I can't promise the second apart.  It just seems like yesterday I was 20.  But the years have flown by and now I'm 56!  And, yes, I'm not afraid to say my age.  I have the gray hair to prove it and the proverbial crows feet.  But I've earned each and every one of those gray hairs and I hope I've earned the crows feet from smiles.  I'm happy to be celebrating another year.  What are my plans today?  Not sure.  Maybe some sewing, maybe some stitching.  I'm just going to go with the flow and see what happens.  Do you admit your age or are you the eternal 29 or 39?  Or have you started counting your birthdays backwards?  Be proud of your age and announce it to the world!

==========================

PHOTO FACTS OF THE DAY

Birthday Cake
(It's not mine - but isn't it amazing!)

The birthday cake has been an integral part of the birthday celebrations in Western cultures since the middle of the 19th century.  That's really not a long time but thank goodness it's a tradition that caught on.  Here is some interesting birthday trivia to celebrate the day:
* More people celebrate their birthdays in August than in any other month (about 9% of all people). The two other months that rate high for birthdays are July and September.
* A recent survey suggests that more people are born on October 5 in the United States than any other day. October 5 holds a not-so-surprising significance, as conception would have fallen on New Year's Eve.
* Since your last birthday 31,536,000 seconds have passed.
* The melody for the Happy Birthday song was first penned by two sisters, Mildred and Patty Hill.
* A Golden Birthday happens only once in a person's lifetime. It happens when the person's age and the date of the day they were born is the same.
* The world's largest birthday cake was created in 1989 it weighed 128,238 pounds, 8 oz. and used 16,209 pounds of icing.
* The day of the week with the least birthdays is Sunday.
* Birthday parties were originally thought to keep evil spirits away.

===============================

QUILT TOP GROWS

Yesterday I started assembling the Designer Mystery BOM quilt top.

First I had to cut out 31 red sashing pieces, 20 turquoise cornerstone pieces, and 80 white snowflake corner pieces.

And then I was able to start assembling the top.  I put the first two rows together before lunch.  So far I'm lovin' this quilt top!  Two more rows and and some border stars and sashing and I will have a completed top!!

================================

JOIN THE FUN


I don't know if you remember the post where I included the Finish The Project Challenge being hosted by Adventures In Oz.  Here's all you have to do:

1) finish a project (or 2 or 3...or more). It doesn't have to be a quilt. It can be a purse or other sewing or fiber project. It just needs to be finished.
2) send a picture of your finished project to rubyslipperz106@hotmail.com
(one picture per project please)

You could win a $30 shopping spree to Crazy Quilt Girl Fabric Shop.  But you have to be quick about it - your entries must be made by the end of the month.  For all of the information, just click on the link above or on the button on the right sidebar.  I have made a couple of entries and hope you will join me in this fun little challenge!

===================================

A LITTLE MORE BALTIMORE

The last couple of evenings I have worked on my 4th Baltimore block......

I have now added folded rose bud tips.  The instructions say not to stitch these down - but I want to be able to use this quilt and am afraid that they would get ripped off if not anchored at the tips in some way.  So I stitched around the two sides and top.  Too bad the lighting wasn't better because you can't really see how the buds are folded.  Maybe next time I should take the picture in some sunlight.  Next is the green base of the flower bud.

=================================

MY BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
Are you ready to help me celebrate my birthday?  I am!!!  Since I can't have you all over for cake and ice cream, how about we celebrate with a GIVEAWAY!  Would you like to see what I am giving away?

This is 8 one half yard cuts of a fabric line called Jasmine by Pamela Mostek for Clothworks.  That's 4 yards of beautiful, coordinated fabric!!  I bought this fabric a few years back and it's just been sitting in it's plastic bag on my shelf looking lonely.  It's time for it to go to someone else - maybe you!

Leave me one comment stating your age and the month of your birth. 
 If I were leaving the comment I would write:
"I am 56 years old and was born in May"

And, if you would like a second chance in the giveaway...
Blog about my giveaway, and then come back and leave me a second comment with a link to where you posted it. (I will check for the link and make sure it works)

Rules:
* Maximum of two entries per person

Good luck everyone!!  I think this is a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday.  I will try to respond to each and every one of  your comments but please don't get upset if you don't hear from me.

===================================
 
FINAL THOUGHT
 
May is a very expensive month in our household.  I don't care that "More people celebrate their birthdays in August than in any other month " - not so in our house.  This is how May goes in our home:  May 5th - SIL's birthday; Mother's Day is the second Sunday in May; May 20th is my birthday; May 21st is my Mother's birthday: and May 31st is DH's birthday.  It used to also include my FIL's birthday on the 15th.  And, after all that, it's quickly followed by our DGS#2's birthday on June 2; our anniversary on June 14, and then Father's Day.  When I was pregnant with DD#2, I informed the doctor that if he told me she was due in May that I would either have her early or cross my legs until June!  Luckily, she was born in the middle of April - lol!  So, as you can see, there is a celebration of one kind or another almost every weekend for almost two months.  So much to celebrate!  And so it continues :D
 
Artificial intelligence is a wonderful thing.
 I told my computer that today is my birthday,
and it said that I needed an upgrade.
~Author Unknown

Continue celebrating and have a glorious weekend!!!

And thank you for the lovely giveaway!

Mary Lou Casada said...

Linda said...

I'm 61 and I was born in January! I always tell my age because if I don't, I'm afraid they'll think I'm OLDER than I really am!!
Happy Birthday!!!I hope your day is "full of sunshine and smiles" as you always say!

Leslie's Itchin to be Stitchin said...

Anne said...

I am 50 and celebrate my birthday in October (but not on the 5th).

Happy Birthday, Linda! Enjoy your very special day!

Wendy said...

Being a math teacher, when I turned 50 I told everyone I was 49.99999..... (repeating). But I'm not really afraid to tell my age. Most people don't believe I'm as old as I am, which is kind of nice.

Anyway, hope you have a great birthday!

I am 51 and I was born in January.

Megan Harmeyer said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!! I hope you enjoy the day. I don't know that there are more people born in August...I only know a few people! Love the Baltimore block. <3

Brita said...

Happy, happy, actual birthday! Mine was on Wednesday, so we're nearly twins. Except that I'm now 67 :-/ Oops, I was supposed to say I'm 67 and my birthday is in May :-)
Hope it's the best ever, with even greater ones to come. Love that birthday cake, such create people. And I really, really heart that fabric -- swoon! I'm having lunch with buds today, but maybe I can pull myself together to blog for ya.

Oh, and as for admitting my age, I do, but maybe we should say we're ten years older, so people can say we look younger. But what if they don't!!!

Needled Mom said...

Happy birthday, Linda!!! I have you beat by a few years. I'll be 64 in October. It is almost time for Medicare!!! Oh dear, how did that happen?

Our May is the same way - eight birthdays (3 on the 11th), Mother's Day, son #1 and our anniversary and son #3,s birthday on June 2nd. I am always glad when May is over. Meanwhile we only have 3 birthdays and one anniversary in August.

I had to think about that golden birthday. Guess that means it always happens before the age of 31. I will have to pay attention for the grands golden birthdays.

Your Christmas quilt looks fabulous. You are really going to enjoy it when it is finished.

Quiet Quilter said...

I Really like those fabrics!! So,,,I am 71 and my birthday is in October...

Kathryn said...

I am 59 years old and I was born in July, so you know what that means for me this summer!! But never fear, my husband always sees me as his young bride since he turns 71 (a young 71) in a few weeks. I used the pink/green/blue colorway of this fabric to make a granddaughter's HS graduation quilt two years ago. I'm sure I can find something to make with the more reddish one. Thanks for the giveaway. Kathie L in Allentown

I love your Baltimore block and your Birthday facts. I love that you are proud of your age. I am 35 and my Birthday is in June. I laugh because I have a relative who has been "turning 34" every year that I've known her which has been at least 6 years now. Its pretty funny that now I'm older than she is.

Hope you have a great, wonderful, fantastic, enjoyable day!!

Linda, I am 54 and my birthday is November. I think each day is a gift- sometimes it challenges and other day's it surprises one but it remains a gift to be treasured. May
the next year be one full of special gifts to be savored and enjoyed. Happy Happy Birthday !
Warmest regards,
Anna

I am 61 and born in September. I hope you have had an amazing day. I always admit how old I am and think it is silly not to. If you look it people know and if you don't, It is fun to find out what they think.

Enjoy the rest of your birthday month!!!

Sue Bone said...

WEll happy Birthday to you!!! May is a busy month for us too now that I've added inlaws and grandchildren to the mix. I'm not afraid of stating my age either...I didn't freak out at turning 30 like some people...it is just an age and I don't get the depression some people get...anyhoo I turned the BIG 50 in March! I told the kids NO PARTIES...I do not like the spot light; they gave a big shindig for my hubby when he turned 50.

Enjoy your day and make it last all week!

I'm 42 and my birthday is in February.


Your house sounds alot like mine. My daughter turned 20 on May 21st. My son will be 23 on June 2nd. My youngest turned 12 on April 8th. We have someone with a birthday every month with most months having 2 or more. Add in holidays and anniversaries....too many. I have to have a chart to keep track of everything.

Happy Happy Birthday!!

soren2go said...

Deborah in Atlanta said...

I am 58 years old and was born in May. I just celebrated my birthday on the 9th of this month. And I also don't know where all the years went. How can I be old and fat with grey hair when I feel so young inside?

Kim D. said...

Happy Birthday Linda!! Congrats on winning the Go Cutter! Whoo Hoo!! Please don't enter me in your contest, I have so much fabric I won't be able to stitch it up in this lifetime. LOL Love the way your BOM quilt is coming along.

Crystal said...

I'm 56 and I just celebrated my birthday in April! I love those bold colors and prints. I think these would look beautiful in one of those quilts with big squares and the solid colored sashing. Thanks for sharing!

Vesuviusmama said...

I am 39 and was born in September. I travel for work, so am usually away from home for my birthday, but this year I'll be at a conference in New Orleans for my birthday, so I am hoping to convince either my hubby (and kids) to join me, or failing that, my twin sister. I'm very excited to be turning 40. My 30s were infinitely better than my 20s, so I'm just expecting that trend to continue. Hooray for stating your true age!!!

Leanne said...

I♥ tulips! Thank you for the generous giveaway and INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING!! :)

I'm 63 and my birthday is in March. I was 29 for a long time but then I decided what the heck and aged about 10 years in one jump. When I reached 50 I started going backwards but that was took hard on my grandchildren. I'm way old now, according to them but I still feel 29.
