A Quilty Birthday!


Happy Birthday to Me!

I am celebrating my 66th 
and
I am officially retired today. 

This nifty quilty gifty arrived a few days ago from my BFF online quilty friend,


and I saved it to open today with my morning coffee. 

Dorian knows me so well ... that I love vintages sewing machines,
butterflies and pretty colors like these lovely hand dyes. 


This panel is sew sweet!

It features four different antique sewing machines.

It is from the 





There is a free pdf. pattern for this fabric line.


The hand dyed and butterfly fabric would be a good addition to this design.

Thank you, my dear friend, Dorian !

Pat, I just am getting around to reading my Bloglovin' digest. I hope you had a wonderful birthday and enjoy your retirement. I'm 66, also. I retired many years ago due to health and haven't done much since unfortunately. I always thought that I'd be one of those people still working and wish I were able. Happy Belated Birthday!
