Happy Birthday to Me and PUP Challenge!

 My guild just started putting out a plate of fabric cupcakes for us to pick from for our birthday month.  I picked this one and it is so cute I am not sure I can unwrap it and sew with it!
We did our annual PUP Challenge where we bring in three poor unfinished projects and explain what tripped us up on not finishing the projects. I brought in Circa 2016, my desert landscape quilt, and my Modern Medallion and they picked the easiest one of the three as far as I am concerned...Circa 2016. So I will be making progress on this one so it will be done by July next year.  
I am liking my new job but no time to sew at all as life is crazy.  This week is Spirit week so my extra time this weekend was spent shopping at Goodwill to get ready to be a beach bum, 80's gal, Lifeguard, Surfer girl and Disneyland Tacky Tourist.  Should be fun!
Yesterday BJ was at our end of town so we got to see her!  Last Thursday, Kathy and I went to Benihana again for our birthdays--picture is fuzzy but always fun to look back on four years of doing that.  We sit at the same table and we get the same server!  She remembers us too.  Today we went and saw the Dark Tower and had pancakes at IHop (shh!). I am up 2.8 pounds still from my lowest, but working on it!  Hope I get to sew next weekend, I miss it!

CUTE idea for your guild birthdays!! PUP challenge? That's tough when someone else chooses the project you will (should) finish. Best of luck!!

Happy birthday! I must say that I loved your medallion. If I were you, I'd quilt it and bind it. I think it is telling you that it is done (by blocking your inspiration for a next round).
