Fifty-nine years and going Strong!:)

Yep, my folks are celebrating their 59th anniversary today...
FIFTY-NINE years!!  Thank goodness that's not my age!:)
Look at them....aren't they fabulous?!:) 
We weren't able to get down to see them today but I left a little surprise in their guestroom.  A quilt for them to hang behind their flat screen TV (it sits on a credenza).
It is made with all kinds of great fabrics depicting scenes from Italy...
my pop's is half Italian too!
I quilted it with lots and lots of circles. I love that kinds of relaxing.
Fairly muted with just a few pops of color...will fill that empty space behind the tv well I think!:) When I get back down and hang it I'll take a picture.
The 'rents with my baby brothers celebrating their birthdays last month.
Love those smiles!
Also love these sweet little birdies my pop made for me...and that Kaffe ribbon!

Happy, Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad....consider yourselves virtually hugged!!:)

Can I show you Adorable?

At least these fit my criteria of Adorable!
Bitty Blocks made for my pal Kimmie who got hitched last up above...
...and down below!;)  That tractor is about 3/4" wide!!
Made this once before...the first lives in the UK...this one is for me.
Pattern  from my pal Amy at During Quiet Time here. Go check it out...there is a whole garden series....amazing stuff!
How about this shower curtain I found for $5.00 at Target....100% cotton! 
One day it will be the back of a quilt!
Rainbow stars made at Sew pattern from Ellison Lane here.  Tiny card trick blocks were a gift from a swap peep and tufted tweets from Quilt Dad!

Those are all adorable but what I really wanted you to see are my folks.
