Middle Aged...say what?


da da da da da da da da! You say it's your Birthday!
It's my Birthday to yeah!
They say it's your Birthday!
We're gonna have a good time!

Ahhh, don't you just love the Beatles?


OK. I read somewhere that the average lifespan of a female  is aprox 82 years of age... That would mean that  I am actually middle aged...

Wow.

Before I ponder that to much, I'm boogieing out of here to have  lunch with pals... I still like a good Birthday! No matter what that OLD number is!  ;-)


Yes, It's my BIRTHDAY! WHOOP WHOOP!


So... In the spirit of BIRTHDAY GIFTS...  
I have a gift or two for you!

I was playing with some fabrics the other, ( go figure) and I whipped up another TRIANGLES GALORE, Click here or in tutorials for the download) block, and thought it would be fun to give some fabrics away, similar to what I was playing with.
So...

I'm not sure where this quilt is going yet, but of course, I like it on point....



So I said, "JACKIE at Canton Village Quiltworks, Can I get some Fat quarters to give away as Birthday gifts on MY Birthday to TWO readers?"
( the last digit of my new AGE. )
((and if you say 52 I will come straight through the computer screen and get you! ))


Here they Are!  I want to give two of you some Fat quarters to go and play with...

Leave me a comment and tell me which Birthday was the BEST YEAR(age) for you and why!

I'm loving this one... I feel I am right where I need to be!  Happy!

I'm off to eat CAKE!  wink!


This is going to go fast, I will pick the winners FRIDAY at 10am.   
be sure to visit JACKIE at Canton Village Quiltworks too!

  2. Happy Birthday to you from another March baby. Hhhm, my best birthday was probably my 40th when my husband conspired with my best friend in NY to come visit me in Seattle. Eek, that couldn't REALLY have been 14 years ago already?!?

  6. Happy Birthday! and 42 is the answer to everything (according to sci fi folks.) My best birthday was my last one -- great B blocks from all over the world, and fun in NYC! thanks again for that, and thanks for the chance to win a birthday gift from you.

  7. Happy Birthday, young lady!

    I would say that my favorite birthday was 40 because my forties have been fabulous, but that would mean admitting that I'm over 40. And I'm not. I'm 26. Just ask my 25 year old son and 21 year old daughter.

  8. Happy happy happy birthday! 32 was the best year for me because for the first time I was finally comfortable in my own skin. I was okay with being me

  9. Ugh, I hate birthdays. Okay, I like cake and presents, but I hate hate hate turning older! I am 36 now, and really the last birthday that I absolutely looked forward to was 16. Once I got my driver's license that was it! Cheers, happy birthday to you! Hope it's a good one! I love that selection of fat quarters, some lovely prints in there....!!!

  10. I think it was fifty. I worked a two-week job that took me to the other Coast and altho I met up with a few friends they didn't know.

    The next day, I was shopping and found a very pretty silver ring. Very different from anything I have ever seen and in my size ?~! HB to Me. I wear it every day in place of a wedding ring--prettier than most small rings it features a leaf shape with inlaid jasper.

  11. Not too many happy birthday memories roiling around in my brain. The best year is going to be next year, when I turn sixty. But happy birthday to you. I hope your day has been fantastic!

  13. Well Happy Birthday, my ipad says you posted this on 3/29 so it is my birthday too. But I turned 48 an hr ago. My daughter came to town last night and took us to dinner and helped her dad buy me an ipad a couple of hours ago. So this is a pretty good one.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Happy Birthday!!! I think my best birthday was when I turned 46. It was during that time when my passion for quilting ignited and brought me a really good friend.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have to say the year I turned 31 on the 31st of
    the month because I won $500.00 ...doesn't
    seem like much but at the time I was a struggling
    single parent with a 2 yr old. It was an absolute
    godsend for us, and now that he's a grown man
    he helps me out once in a while. Happy Birthday and
    many more.

  16. Happy birthday Victoria. A gondola ride in Venice on my 54th birthday stands out as one of my most memorable.

  17. My best birthday was when I turned 51. My DH tokk me on a surpriceweekend. First night we stoped at a hotel near the fjord. Next day he took me to wisit a fabric shop called Desiree, and I got his credit card. In the evening he had gatered all of my family for dinner. All this with no planning or work from my side. Lovely. No wonder I love that boy. Hugs Jofrid

  18. It's your birthday? Really? Didn't notice, LOL! Happy Birtday!

    They're all good ones, Victoria! I'd say that 40 was one of the better ones. My fifth child was still only a few months old, so it kept me feeling young. Also, I had recently gone online and joined some mailing lists, which generated a boatload of emails with birthday wishes. That was fun! As I said, they're all good!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Happy birthday, Victoria! Hah, you are just a spring chicken, I'll be 50 by the end of the month. Hope you ate lots of cace which is what I intend to do too - diabetic or not!

  20. Joyeux anniversaire, Victoria ! XXX
    No best birthday for me :(

  21. It may seem odd...but my best birthday was when I turned 65! I no longer had to pay the exorbitant medical insurance premiums...LOL

    ReplyDelete
  22. Victoria, that makes two of us that are that same middle age. My favorite years were 26 when I had my daughter, and 29 when my son was born!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Best birthday... The next one!
    Great block too!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Happy Birthday!!
    My most memorable birthday was 50th. My husband and I went away for 4 nights to an beautiful resort which we couldn't afford when we still had young children.

  26. A very happy birthday to you! I hope it's the best ever. My best had to be 16. Why? The driver's license!

  27. Happy Happy Happy birthday
    I think the best birthday ever was when I was about 10 and I got a brand new bike, I never thought I would ever get a new bike (being the youngest hand me downs was just the way it was!)
    I treasured that bike for years....

    enjoy your lunch and yes even get cupcakes for breakfast!

  28. I'd have to say 40 - my husband and I are 2 days apart and we escaped for a long weekend to Niagara Falls. I'm hoping though that this year will be the best yet since it's my "50th"! Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey you! Happy Birthday. Best birthday was last year when I was given a huge Amazon gift certificate and bought Gwen and Freddy's 2 books and Amish Abstractions. Yes! x

    ReplyDelete
  30. The best birthday party I had must have been when I turned 9 (yes, nine). I remember it very clearly, because that was Easter Sunday. My birthday is late in April, and the next time this coincidence occurs is on my 96th birthday (!), lets hope that occation will turn out as great as the first one!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Happy birthday. I hope you have a wonderful day.

  32. Happy birthday, Victoria. I think my best birthday was 38. I was the weight I wanted to be (how often does that happen?) and my kids were young so they were all home with me. Those two things have not coincided again. I am already a follower. Thanks for the chance to win some beautiful fabric.

  34. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you!! I have just become your 1000 follower woo hoo... don't think that has happened to me before! I was going to say my 50th was the best birthday but I was expecting a party for that, so I am going to say two years ago when I was 57. We went to the UK (we now live in France)for a visit. One of the nights we booked a table at a restaurant for family and friends and it was one of the best nights ever, just to be with everyone again was very special. Hugs Linda

  35. Hi Victoria... Happy Birthday.... its my son's too.... we have just finished singing "Happy Birthday".
    12 was quite good, 22 was really good, 32 was the best, 42 wasnt good. 52 was appalling :(

    ReplyDelete
  36. happy birthday Victoria, I guess my happiest birthday was my 37th when I had already lived with a live threatening medical condition and was still alive - and now 23 years later, still ticking and still eager to see each birthday alive knowing I am still here.

  39. Happy Birthday!!! My favorite year was 33. I looked good and I felt good. I am loving who I am now, at 54. I am a quilter and most quilters that I have met are wonderful people. Love the age you are, you're not going to get younger!!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hey! You say "52" like it is a bad thing - it isn't!!!!
    I always consider the last birthday to be the best. My last one was really good - I got an iPad as a present. I have used it almost every day since then.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Happy Birthday! I always think my last birthday was the best! which actually was yesterday!!!
    Have a great day!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Happy Birthday Victoria AND your blog has 1000 followers, I just noticed! My favourite birthday was 25. I had a really fun party with lots of friends and was really doing just what I wanted. I'm more than twice that now, and 50, two years ago, was really good too. I had another party, and I'd just opened my little fabric store. Next big one? 70

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think my favorite birthday was last year's because even though I hit 60, I enjoyed it whale watching, hiking and drinking wine with my husband. We went to a bed and breakfast in Fort Bragg CA and explored the areas near there and the redwood forests both north and south. No stress just joy.

  49. The FIRST ONE! I am such an optimist I just KNEW the first one was the sign that things just keep getting better. I have not been disappointed! Oh, no! That means the MOST RECENT ONE is the best until the next one comes along. Okay, I will stick with that. The most recent one is the best birthday so far.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Happy Birthday, Victoria! Wow, to be as young as you are.....any birthday up to the age of 55 I guess was good. Now I hate to see them come along.

    Those fat quarters are fabulous.

  57. Definitely 22. I liked it so much I stayed there for years. So many years, in fact, that when asked my age, I couldn't really remember. Just knew I wasn't 22. Have a Happy Birthday!

  58. I'm just glad the birthdays are still coming! They are all my favorites. Happy Birthday!! I wish I was as young as you.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Happy Birthday Victoria!!! Am going to assume you are turning 22 or 32!!! 16 was a pretty great birthday because I could get my car and motorcycle licenses. 29 was an especially good one too. After dating jerks semi-professionally, on this birthday I was sitting across the table from someone pretty amazing who still graces my life many years later... Hope you have a wonderful day!!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would have to say that 20 was my favorite. Yes, a long time ago, but there was a lovely young man involved. I won't say any more here, because it may just steam up your monitor!

  65. Happy Birthday Victoria! The best birthday is the one you celebrate newly each year. The body may have some new aches and pains each year, but oh the wisdom and life experieces!

  66. No one birthday itself stands out to me, but I just loved being 27. It was, by far, my favorite age! It was also the year my first child was born so that probably has a lot to do with it.

    Happy Birthday and thanks for the chance to win!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. happy birthday dear Victoria!!! i've had a lot of really BAD birthdays as a adult. haha. as a child they were all good, my brother and i shared a summer birthday, mom always made them special. have a good day. :>)

  73. On the Today show this morning they said that a study showed that 33 is the happiest age. I wasn't terrifically happy at 33, but every age since I married my wonderful husband at 42 has been GREAT!! Kathie L in Allentown

  74. I liked turning 30... and if you need to feel young, you'll always be two years younger than me! Or you can join me in celebrating my brother's 50th! birthday on Tuesday (3/27). He always makes me feel young!

  77. Happy birthday! Every birthday is the best one when you are my age.... Live to quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Happy birthday to you! I admire anyone who can handle any age, because I can't. I hate birthdays because it reminds of the time in my life when I got dumped after I was told that I was too old after 6weeks into a relationship. Now my brain tells me that everyone treats you bad if they know how old you are so I never talk about my age. Even my dad makes fun of me and my siblings getting older - very hurtful.

  79. Turning 40 was so fun, the youth in my SS class came and rolled my yard and then came back later and cleaned it up..so funny!
    Happy B'day to you, have a great one!!

  80. Happy birthday Victoria! my best birthday was a few years back (can't remember exact age) but my kids cleaned my whole house and planned a dinner with all of them, their closest friends who had "adopted" me and our family and my friends all by themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  81. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

    I would say turning 30 was the best. I regret leaving my 20s, but I realized, I was no very stable....husband, child, home, work, and enjoying being me and doing my crafts.

    ReplyDelete
  82. the best birthday? hmm ... I've loved them all! how wonderful to be showered with love & gifts from your loved ones :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm bad at math (even simple math) and for some reason I thought I was turning 48 and my husband, reminded me that I was turning 47, it was like I'd gained a year! That was fun.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Since I'm a leap year baby - turning 15 and 60 was pretty special. Happy Birthday to you!!

  85. The two birthdays that stand out for me are my 16th spent in line at DMV to get my license and my last one, the big 5-0 spent in paradise with my siblings. Happy Birthday to YOU.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Happy birthday to you! March is a great birthday month! Turning 30, last year, was great. I got the spend the day and have dinner with my mom and sisters and then the next two days kayaking with a great group of friends. It helped me forget I was leaving my 20's behind.

  91. What a great idea and gift!!!! My best birthday was the year I met my DH - our birthdays are only one day apart - so we always 'share' our celebration at midnight!!! That first year was rather steamy - now it's more likely to be a piece of chocolate cake in bed - but both are wonderful in their own way!!

  96. Happy Birthday, Victoria. Must be 3-2, right? It is actually my son's birthday today as well (Jackie's nephew by marriage). He's 38.

    Hard to say which birthday of mine was the best. I truly appreciate each year.

  100. Happy day V! Have a glorious day! best bday, that's a tough one - bdays don't bother me - but I remember a great party when I turned 18, I think. My bday is New Year's Day, so we had the party the night before and celebrated at midnight. We went sledding on a giant hill (watertower hill, gotta love small town Minnesota), and it was something like 20 below, my eyelashes froze together! then back home and mom made us all pizza (homemade) and cocoa. Good times! all the best to you - and I know, you will be forever young!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I love birthdays! And although my 40s were full of challenges, I felt mature and equipped enough to handle them, and to not lose sight of priorities. Blessings to you!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Happy birthday! I don't really have a "favorite" birthday. Probably the typical turning 16 - driving age (even though it was a few months before I actually started driving!)

    ReplyDelete
  103. Happy birthday Victoria! Being middle aged isn't too bad. Old enough to know better, yet still young enough not to care what others think. (wink).

    Really, any birthday is good one. Life is what you make it.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Happy Birthday Victoria! And of course I wasn't going to say 52! Sheesh. :) I was thinking 32, right? My best birthday. Hmmm all are great!Most memorable. Probably 21 and that was a long time ago but I remember having a cake with the numbers 21 in candles and a red/white/blue peace sign hand (don't know why THAT was on there but it was in the 70s so....) And it was also my sister's birthday and she had her on cake and we had friends and family there and had a great time. Hope yours is wonderful too! And I love these fabrics and your quilt block! Amazing!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Happy Birthday Victoria :)
    I don't know if I had a favorite birthday, but I enjoyed turning 30. I felt like I finally fit in with the older group and still fit in with the younger one at the same time!

    Such a beautiful block you made.

    I have to say my best birthday was actually this year when I turned 47. My husband took me out quilt shop hopping all day. It was so relaxing, and so yummy to see all the cool fabrics.

    I hope you have a wonderful day!

  107. Happy birthday Victoria. Hope you have a wonderful day.
    My best birthday was my 25th. I got married the next day to the love of my life. That was almost 22 years ago and we're still happily together.

  109. Happy Birthday!
    I would say that 25 was lots of fun. I am not a fan of my birthday as it comes when my husband is busyiest at work, and the kids are writing exams. Maybe I should change the date. lol

  112. Happy Happy birthday to you! I keep turning 25 every year but I believe that the 8th time was the best- I got a new nephew for my birthday (he was two days late but he still was my favorite gift!) I keep asking my sister how she's gonna top that but she refuses to have twins :) AC will be four this year and he loves to tell people that he is my Present!

  113. HAPPY BDAY!! Age is just a number, we can be as young as we wish! =0) My fave Bday was 39, it was the year I birthed my one & only child, a daughter. If I'd known children were so fun I'd started a lot sooner and had more! I LOVE your block in this post, so awesome!

  114. I used to say 30. I felt like I had a handle on life, that I grew up in my 20's. Now, after the big C diagnosis, EVERY birthday is a great day! Have a wonderful week. My friends and I take a whole week for our birthday, it allows room for a few more celebrations! Whoohoo to you, eat cake and enjoy!

  120. I guess considering the alternative (dead) all birthdays are pretty good;>) Certainly the anticipation and excitement was much higher when I was little, so maybe those were favorites. Am a follower; thanks for chance to win! And Happy Birthday! (marshudson at comcast dot net)

  127. We aren't big birthday celebrators around here. This year wasn't bad though, my granddaughter made her entrance into this world. She's now 3 weeks old. Congrats on a March birthday. Have a happy day.

  128. Happy Victoria's Day!

    Every birthday is my best one! I love them, always take the day off (helps to be self-employed!), treat myself very well, eat cake, and ignore how the years are adding up.

  130. My best birthday year was when I was 53 because we got to talking numbers and I realized 53 was a prime number......which meant I was in my prime. Granted, there were other years with prime numbers but I wasn't paying attention to my age then. LOL! I thought turning 40 was pretty good, too. Took a different job and made some fantastic friends that year. I am planning an outdoor quilt show for when I turn 64 in 2013. My husband is "on board" and I am already humming the Beatles....."When I get old and gray in my hair.........I will share my quilts......." hee hee! A sense of humor really helps in life. :-)

  131. I can't really say. Perhaps the birthday I will always remember was turning 45. My sister passed away two days before, and it was such a blessing, for she had suffered for many many years with Multiple Sclerosis. The whole year I rejoiced that she was in heaven!

  134. I have to say one of the best birthdays I ever had was my 53- it was a fun day full of nice surprises. Often my birthday fall on when I have student led conferences( that is how I spent my 50th birthday) I can't even tell you what was special about that milestone birthday.
    Love the fun fat quarters and love Jackie's site.
    Thanks for sharing your special day.

  137. Happy Birthday to you!!!! My favorite birthday was 50. Yes the big 5-0. My friends at work had a BIG, I mean BIG sign, like 4'x8', sign in front of our office (did I mention we are on a very busy street) Nifty, Nifty Diane's fifty with a big (over the hill)hill and a buzzard sitting in a tree. So cute and funny. My desk was all decorated and they had a big cake with black icing.

  139. Happy Birthday & so glad you feel you're right where you need to be. What else could be more perfect!

    My fav birthday was the year I thought all year I was a year older than I actually was & the next b'day meant turning the big 50. As it got closer to my b'day, I finally realized I was only 48 & would be turning 49 instead of 50!

    Guess I did enough dreading that year, cause the next year was fine.

    ReplyDelete
  140. 50! I had just met the love of my life, now my husband. As far as I can tell, things just get better and better!

  141. Happy birthday to you, hope the cake was good! My best age was probably 22, newly married and anything seemed possible, that now seems like a very long time ago! thanks for the chance to win

  142. Happy birthday!

    Best birthday ever? When I turned 20. That year my big brother gave me the sister I always wanted. They got married on my birthday.

    Best compliment ever? When same brother told me that his new wife reminded him of me.

  145. My favorite birthday would have to have been my 35th birthday. My wonderful man got me flowers and candy and took me to dinner and waited on me all evening. He even got me jewelry. Happy birthday to you.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I think turning 18 was my best one of the early birthdays I remember. And now, EACH YEAR's birthday is the best one because I am still here on the earth with my wonderful hubby and family. Being a grandma is wonderful and I am enjoying quilting again after many years, as well as writing, gardening, birding and anything else I want to do!! OLDER is BETTER. ha

  148. 40 was a great birthday for me. We had just moved to the country, fulfilling a lifelong dream, and I was still wrapped in love from the friends back home.

    I hope this is the start of a wonderful year for you, Victoria!

  153. Happy Birthday! I would have to say my favorite birthday was when I was 10. I got to have a "party" in the back yard with cake and ice cream with the neighbor kids. Other birthdays were just cake with family.

    Enjoy your day!

  156. Happy Birthday, Victoria. I loved turning 40 because I finished my master's degree that year. It was a good year all around. I liked 50 too, however. My husband threw a party for me. We didn't ask for RSVP's and SO MANY people came . . . people I hadn't seen for ages. It was like attending the best of reunions. Now I'm pushing 60. Oy.

  157. Happy Birthday! My best birthday is usually the last one I had - and ages are no longer mentioned. Last year it was on my brother's pre-Halloween party cookout night - with all the littles going on a hayride and having fun. I think the oldest child was 7 or 8 years old. Most were ages 2-4. It's so much fun to be with littles having fun. So, have fun! Thanks for the giveaway to celebrate.

  159. Happy Birthday!!! My favorite one was my 40th. My kids made it special by loving on me all day and letting me do whatever I wanted. They also did no fighting that day.

  160. Happy Birthday!!
    I've had so many birthdays, it's hard to pick a favorite. I'd have to say my 11th birthday--I got a softball glove (I'd been drafted to play on the boys' 4-H softball team.)

  167. Strangely enough, this year was one of the best I have ever had and I have many!!lol I turned 45 (ouch!) The great part was this year my birthday was during the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. I was on cloud nine, I took a quilting class with Robbi Joy Eklow and went to a lecture given by Tammi Bowser. The morning of my actual birthday, I walked through the all the quilts, took pictures and was in awe of all the beauty. I was so inspired.
    My family took me for lunch at my favorite German Restaurant near my house. I received roses from my son and his wife, well wishes from friends and family.
    **I think we all need a special day to be reminded that we are wonderfully made and worthy of love. I definitely felt that this year.

  168. My 55th. I'd just retired, and I was on mt dream trip in the Yukon.

  169. Happy birthday! I will turn 52 next week and my birthday present to myself was my first-ever quilt retreat this weekend, so I would say this birthday is a pretty good one. I can't wait to quilt all weekend and get to know some people from my quilt guild.

    ReplyDelete
  170. I Think I would have to say 39 was a good year for me. The perfect age. Settled in life, but not the dreaded 40. Of course now that I am in my 50's, I am hoping 59 is better, LOL

    ReplyDelete
  171. Happy birthday! 34 was a pretty good one for me - young, in love, living in Paris.

  177. My best birthday was when I was 26 - I became a MOM for the first time and that has been the most life changing and wonderful experience ever! Happy Birthday again my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Best birthdays were always when I was a kid. You get better presents then and no one asks you how old you are. I did laugh when I turned 40 my wife decorated my desk at work all in black. What fun life can be.
