A Very Special “Happy Birthday”

On Sunday, September 13, I was privileged to participate in the Birthday Bash for Nuts N Bolts Needle Works in Woodland Park, Colorado.  The setting for this fabulous shop is the mountains above Colorado Springs and the day was gorgeous!  In addition to the quilts, fabrics, notions, yarns, and fun gift items, we were treated to a delicious array of finger foods and birthday cake.  There were lots of giveaways and make and take classes as well.  That’s where I came in!

I taught many of the ladies in attendance to make the Button Button Dangle.  Here are a couple of the ladies enjoying themselves:


And me, talking, as usual!


Next month I will be teaching a class for the Beaded Button Bracelet at the shop.  My schedule has all of the information, if you are interested in taking this fun and easy class.

Thanks to all of the ladies at Nuts N Bolts for a wonderful day!  It was also my nephew, Kevin’s 8th birthday.  Kevin was lucky to be born on my Da’s birthday (my maternal grandfather) who passed away a couple of years ago at the ripe old age of 99.5.  After helping him to celebrate so many birthdays it seems only fitting to continue to do so in conjunction with Kevin!  So, Happy Birthday to all.  Let’s eat cake!!!
