Thank you! Saturday is Saturated with......and a hope for Oprah....

I present, present of presents, your PRESENCE.....


your presence in my life, blog, email, mailbox, and general vibes/ Godwinks are gifts that I cannot ever thank you enough for!  My gratitude meter is off the charts!!!!!


A couple of days ago dear Erin at http://vesuviusmama.blogspot.com/ started my Thursday with a phone pic on my phone of this cute WONKY "THX".... Tonyaesque, would you agree?

and with all of the love you have been sharing with me for my birthday weekend as you pedal by home in blogland....

 Love is like riding a bike, you may get rusty if you get scraped or fall, but getting back in the saddle....


Love from the Birthday Princess!


A little dream board and wrapping paper I made from Oprah's magazine CELEBRATING creativity....Your HEARTS are jewels to me! if I was a maple tree, I would have syrup everywhere!!!!!



Your birthday wishes are like "HI"s to me...Do you see the "HI" patterns in Sharon's above quilt.  It will soon be a bedspread for sweet little Babe who just a Big Boy bed....LOVE IT SIS!!!



A fussy cut kiss on mom's applique, WHIMSICAL GARDEN....and a circumpunct flower center!

Mom is the PIECE "O CAKE applique professional!!!! More leaves covered with little O's!!!!!!!!!!



"HELLO my name is"......Ms, CELEBRATING FRIENDSHIP.....would that fit on a name tag?  Love you Sharon for the wonderful gifts!!!!  I am playing with the idea of a wonky name tag quilt using this CHARM pack...HMMMMMMMMMMMMm



Roxy and I are having a wonderful time quilting/ embellishing the HAIL MARY quilt......I wish that you could see the puffy design of her Marmalade gown with the outlining of the golden designs............CELEBRATING the GLORY OF WOMEN!!!!



And more hearts.....Sis, Sharon, is having fun and termed them "Hearts A La Marian" after my mom.....

And for a fabulous showing of HEARTS....please visist http://kwiltzbystephanie.blogspot.com/ for her wonderful heart rocks, organic LOVE, swag, pizza, and just general WONDERFULNESS!!! and did you see Victoria's heart quilt that was so adorable at http://bumblebeansinc.blogspot.com/?  If you don't get your daily dose of Victoria then you may have V-emia......can easily be remedied with little dose of her blog each day!



I was so inspired by Oprah's magazine Jan or Feb. 2011 that I decided to make a dream board using fabric from my stash and ads and ditties from the magazine.....Click on the image to find a little inspiration that speaks to you.....

I have always dreamt of  being like Oprah or Ellen or other philanthropic souls who are able to give love and hope to the world one heart at a time...I sent this with a quilt inside to Oprah to thank her and it was returned....

"Harpo does not accept unsolicited gifts..."


I am sorry, Oprah, that we live in a world where safety and terrorism took away this luxury from you or that you receive too much love from admirers like me and so it is now not a novelty...I am sorry Oprah that someone else gets to decide what love you receive and what is not received...

I hope I never have to SOLICITE love...

!Love!  Em

Living in the UK and not owning a TV, I've never seen Oprah and never even heard of Ellen...but I've heard of Em! She's a great lady who works in a caring profession, caring mom and loving wife, daughter and sister, on top of this, she's a talented quilter with a quirky sense of humour and a genuine love of God. She spends her spare time(!)creating a fun blog that inspires total strangers and makes them into friends...Poor Oprah...
