What a fabulous day!!

November 4th has been a special day to me for a long time. It is the Birthday of the most beautiful man, the love of my life, Lego Hair Man.
I am daily amazed, and feel so blessed to have him!

The next thing that made this day special happened 11 years ago, the birth of my 1st son. He is the calm in the storm of my children. He is my kindred spirit (as Anne of Green Gables would say).

The third moment of greatness was the opportunity to vote. It was such a rush of freedom to touch the buttons on the computer screen. I don't care who anyone voted for as long as you voted. We are blessed to live in America!
NOW!! For the new great reason to love November 4th-
It is the day I met my Fan! Trixie Belle!
(due to recent concerns about the safety of blogging, all names have been changed to protect the innocent!)
The girls at the quilt shop called to let me know that she was there to meet me.
I was so excited that I ran (me run...nah!) right over.
She is the cutest thing, and VERY talented too. She makes Applique Quilt patterns. They are the cutest things I've ever seen. Check out her website!
It is called Chitter Chatter designs, but if you look it up as chitterchatter.com you end up on a nasty site.......uhhhhh....so, don't forget the design parts!

She had made this (above) to put on a purse she is making, but she let me have it! Isn't it great!! She also had me sign a couple of pieces of fabric for her and her daughter, Marybelle Eunice, to inclued in the purses the is making.
I feel like a super star. Look at that dorkey look on my face in that picture!! It is the same look I had on my face in the pics I got with Amy B, and Anna m. Horner. When I'm giddy I don't photograph well. It's like all 3 of my chins decide that they want to be in the picture too!
Well, anyway, it has been an eventful day!
