Can You Keep a Secret?

Sunday is my mother's 65th birthday.  She expressed some interest in having a tea party at local tea room.  I decided to up the ante.  She thinks we will be at the local tea room but....we will meet our friends in front of our local tea room and then a limo will pick us up to take us to San Francisco to have tea at the CROWN AND CRUMPET!!!  I recently read about this little jewel on the Polka Dot Pixie's blog and decided I had to try it.  All the reviews I have read are great!  I handmade a special crown for Mom and the rest of us will wear little rhinestone tiaras.  I am so excited and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all will go well.  I won't be around much this week as I will be busy planning this event but I hope to have photos for you next week.

Next week, I will be furloughed for a week for Spring Break. It will be hard not having a paycheck for that week but I look forward to spending some much-needed time with my family.  Posting will be sporadic but I'm hoping to finish Noodlebug's rag quilt and do so more work on my 39 Squares project!  I'll be checking in with all your blogs!!!
