Another Birthday!

 Yikes, my birthday is here ... AGAIN!

There seems to be less time between them with every passing year.  It seems as though I had just begun my 50th year.  Can hardly believe this day is the beginning of my 70th.

I like this greeting sent to me by my niece, Sarah.


I count myself to be luckier than Elvis, who'll be missing his 76th birthday this coming Saturday.  I'm lucky, and thankful, to be fairly healthy and to have the time and energy to create art.

Happy Birthday, Nellie. I have been following you for about a year now. I found your blog while researching fabric postcards and have enjoyed all your posts since. I have always noticed, by what you post, that you deliberately enjoy life and share that joy with others. I pray that this year embraces you with as much vigor and joy as you exhibit to all around you. Enjoy your birthday!

Darcey, thank you for those kind words. Part of what keeps me current and going "at it" is sharing it with all of you "out there".

Happy birthday, Nellie, and "amen" to being lucky. I feel the same way.

That Elvis over your shoulder is creepily lifelike!

A very happy birthday, Nellie- one filled with family, friends, love and good cheer. I've loved getting to know you better over the past year, and look forward to more of your amazing art in the years to come.

And I want to be just like you when I grow up!! :)

Hope you've had a fun day--Love your picture--(is there anybody else in line behind you after Elvis? People have been looking for him for years you know) Couldn't believe you turned 70, then realized 60 is zooming toward me..I'm now surprised about both of us! Even though I do it in pieces and spurts, following you has been such a good experience. In gratitude for your wonderful work and your kind and inspiring attitude.

Happy Belated Birthday Nellie! Lots and lots of creative endeavors are ahead for you, no doubt in my mind.

I am with you on time going way too fast the older you get.

Still kicking quilts and looking great! It is beyond my powers of comprehension that you are in your 7th decade!

All the best!!!

Oh Nellie, many happy returns of the day! You are such an amazing artist and an inspiration worldwide. I wish you tons of health and great days! With deep admiration.

70 today is not what 70 was to our parents and grandparents. And for that I am thankful. Hope you had a very happy birthday.
