Sniff, sniff, cough...Happy Birthday!

I have caught a beast of a cold for my 60th birthday and I am not too happy with it. I can work okay and do all the other things I need to do, but with a nagging cough and full head. On the brighter side, I did hear from all my family and that was wonderful.
My son and his wife just got back from visiting her parents in Japan and sent some lovely gifts! I love gifts... fabric (ooo goody!) socks with a space between the big and minor toes, a wonderful calendar (after the month is done there is a post card to cut out and send) and oodles of mystery snacks that Mr Wazoo has broken into and sampled already. I'm posting the fabric and socks, as they piqued my interest the most.
Meanwhile, back in the studio; Mr Wazoo and I have been busy quilting and making customers happy. Gotta love that! We'll be hard at work tomorrow, when 60 will be just another day.

Mr Wazoo did this, too

The embroidered label is in French! (Soft dragons)

A pretty wall hanging

My snazzy new socks

Very cool Japanese fabric

The stars are quite tiny and very well done

Simple quilting to better show off the fabrics
