Labor Day 2010

Thirty four years ago my mom went into labour with me. Ironically enough, it was Labor Day then too (09-06-76)! I wasn't born till the day after (yes tomorrow is my birfday :) !!) but my mom and I always laughed about it! So....happy Labor Day!! Hope you all had a safe weekend!! 

Just a few things to show you. :) 

My DSQ9 (Doll Quilt Swap #9) is done! I put the finishing touches on it tonight and it will be in the mail tomorrow! I hope my partner likes it! 

Here is "Little Star-lits"...

A better view of the quilting...

 Then a shot of the label.....with the name covered of course. :D

 Now I just have some cuteness for you to see.... Odyssey sleeping on my ironing board....

Odyssey still sleeping....she's out like a light!

And still sleeping....

 Isn't she the cutest?

 She finally got sick of me taking her picture and sat up.... still half sleeping...

 Then she yelled at me.....

 Twice!! LOL!!

Nah...she was only yawning...but I thought it was funny just the same!! :)

Hope you enjoyed the slideshow!

Much Love!!!


  1. Happy Birthday tomorrow! I found out that I was pregnant with my first on Labor Day. Your story is better though.

  2. Oooh, love that little quilt - great colors and beautiful quilting!! Your cat is entirely too cute - that last pic of her sleeping is frameworthy!! And, of course, happy happy birthday!!! Have a wonderful day!!

  3. Yippee Zippee!! It's your birthday!! Do you have big birthday plans?

    Your doll quilt is just great! I'm sure the recipient is going to be just thrilled!.

    Sweet kitty! Thanks for sharing her with us!

  4. Happy Birthday! Wonderful doll quilt. I'm going to pretend it is coming to me. :)

  5. Happy early Birthday! It's my daughter's Birthday today. She wasn't a labor day baby though. I think it's pretty cool that she'll always have a 3 day weekend near her Birthday!

    I LOVE your quilt. I hope I can get my points to look so good someday! Love the quilting you did on it as well.

  6. Happy birthday to you tomorrow. My DH's birthday is also tomorrow and he was born on a Labor Day. We have always chuckled about that.

    We, too, have an orange tabby that looks like yours. Unfortunately, ours is VERY old and is painfully thin these days. As long as he is content and apparently pain free we will let him have his simple pleasures.

    Love your pretty quilt. I am sure it will be appreciated.

  7. Happy birthday tomorrow! I was in labor 13 years ago today with my first...but it wasn't labor day that year.

  8. How adorable! Both kitty and quilt ;0)

    I hope you have a very wonderful birthday with lots of sweet goodness!

  9. Happy birthday! I love your quilt!

  10. Happy Birthday i hope you have a great day
    Love the quilt really nice
    Hugs Janice

  11. Happy birthday! I love the quilt, great idea. And the cat is adorable. I always say I'm coming back as a housecat next life. :)

  12. Happy Birthday! Hope it brings you all your desires.

    Love the colors of your dool quilt, very nicely done.

  13. Happy day before your birthday. I love the quilt and really like the straight line quilting you did. There can never be too many cute animal pictures in a blog as far as I'm concerned!

  14. The cutest cat ever!!! I wish DH would let me get a cat but I know that will never happen.
    Oh and do I really need to tell you that I like the DQ? Because I think you already know how I feel about your stuff. lol

  15. Happy Birthday. I hope you have a wonderful birthday!


  16. Happiest birthday wishes today and tomorrow too! How could your swap partner do anything but love your quilt?!?! You do beautiful work! And your cat .... too cute :)

  17. Happy Birthday!!
    Your quilt is so beautiful!

  18. Ooooh, KarrieLyne, I almost missed it....Happy Birthday to you! Hope you had a wonderful day full of all of your heart's desires!

    I love your kitty's name...Odyssey...such a great name for a cat. And yes, she is adorable! My boy kitties Wilson and Buster both think she is one "hot" kitty! =^..^=



  19. To Funny, 5 years ago my daughter went into labor on labor day and had a beautiful little girl on labor day! This year she went into labor on labor day and had a handsome little boy the day after! Happy Birthday to you!

  20. OHHHHHHHH my GOSHHHHHHHHH thank you so much, I LOVE my quilt, LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!

  21. Lol at all the labor day stories...7 years ago I went into labor on labor day but did not have her until the next day. Labor day that year fell on the 1st. Happy Day to you!!!

Happy Quilting!
