Happy, happy Birthday baby.....

Another September 1st, another year, another birthday *VBS* Happy Birthday to my sweet DD#1...looking good! Busy weekend here, chores that needed doing but requiring stronger arms than mine. DD#1 and her DH came down on Saturday and "did" all that needed doing *VBS* I'm so very grateful for the help.
 My body certainly let me know ALL about the extra stuff on Sunday and I granted myself a "play day". I've been neglecting my Orphan Train bits and pieces, so I pulled them out to play with. This newly begun top will be about a "50-50" top. Half orphan blocks, both mine and dontated, and half odd squares and left over 4 patches. The top 5 or 6 rows are joined, but below that I'm still in the 'audition and adjust' process. If you've donated orphan blocks, scraps and/or leftovers, look closely, they might be in here *VBS*
AND Happy September Everyone! Are you "trying to remember, and if you remember...follow"?

I have always loved the way you use black and white. It was what attracted me to your blog to begin with.

Happy Birthday to your dd#1. Hope she has a wonderful day.

I can't wait to see the finished orphan train quilt. I'm hoping to get upstairs and work on some quilting tonight. Hugs.

Love your orphans for sure! I just am amazed that you can get it all to fit together so well, and all the blocks look like they belong.

Ahh, so glad you received so help on the day we celebrate DD's birthday as well as the day YOU worked so hard many years ago to bring this wonderful life into the world. We must celebrate that as well.

And oh, how fun this quilt is. Love the fun you're having!
