Green Bay Packer Clogs

Green clogs
I wore my Green Bay Packer Clogs for the first time this season.
They didn’t work and we didn’t win.

Phone Charm

My friend Robbie Porter Payne beaded this phone charm for me.
Each side of the triangle is slightly more than an inch.

The beads are iridescent which doesn’t show on the photo.
Her beading skills are AMAZING. I am so lucky to have wonderful talented friends.

Smoke Plant Reborn

This smoke plant was about 20 feet high as it didn’t get trimmed before last winter.
It was cut right down to the ground in early spring and came back looking so pretty.
It is a fast grower and I love it’s colors.

Happy Birthday To Me Video

This is the cute short video of my grandsons and my son singing Happy Birthday to me and blowing out the candles!

More Gorgeous Birthday Flowers

My son Jeff and grandsons Cooper and Caleb came over last night with flowers, a card and a cake for my birthday.
Caleb (4) picked the color and they are gorgeous.  He also decided he had to change into some of his best clothes before they came over!

They sang Happy Birthday and I did a short video of it. I posted it on Facebook as that is the only way I know to post videos! So if you want to see if and are on FB it’s there for you.

Who Or What Just Turned 10 Years Old?

No, not me!!!!
I started my blog Quilts + Color on September 14, 2008.
I had no idea what I would be doing but wanted to share my work and create a personal diary for myself.
34 people viewed that first post! The most views I ever received on one single blog post was 13259 on Sunrise- Sunset Quilt Tutorial.

It was the first of 2342 post I have shared.
Although my main emphasis is on my quilts and color I share a wide variety of subjects unique and personal to me.
I have no plans to stop.
The benefits have been great. When I want to know when I did something, when the flowers bloomed, or anything else I can find it by finding it on a post. I have met some of you on line because you read my blog. I have also met some of my blog readers in person I didn’t know before. I’ve also found some long lost friends because they read my blog.
It’s a great way to shut down for the day as I try to schedule my blog posts for the next morning at the end of the day.

Gorgeous fall bouquet.
