It's my birthday!!

Todays my birthday and I'm in a celebratory mood! Last year I gave my self a birthday party, this year I'm stretching the celebration out. It started last Thursday when we went to Boise with friends. We went to the Apple Store and I bought an ipad for my birthday, it was $100 off because the ipad2's were coming out the next day. Oh I'm loving it, have downloaded some fun app's and am trying to learn all that it can do. We also went out to a great Brazilian restaurant for lunch, did some other shopping and had a great time. I also got a beautiful mango that by this morning was perfectly ripe, I devoured half and the rest of it went into a mango ,blackberry, banana smoothy. Yummo!

Since last weeks post I've entered the big leaf quilt in 2 more shows. I also have someone here in town that wants to buy it, so I'm feeling much better. I've been working on the not so big leaf quilt and yesterday I started quilting it. This is how it looked before quilting.

Today I'm also starting an online photoshop elements class. I've had the software on my computer for over a year and only use it to resize photos, so it's time to learn something new.

I'm off to celebrate my day, having lunch with a friend and then ??? I'll find something to do!
