It's all about me today

Today's my birthday! I have been hanging out here for 42 years. I stopped celebrating birthdays a long time ago.  When the kids were younger it was always just another day. Now that they are (mostly) grown I've been thinking about celebrating again. Now that I am older I have this urge to celebrate (or decorate) all special days and Holidays. While wandering around the web I found something that will help me with this....


I found this on Amazon and I just had to order it! I've always loved Sunbonnet Sue and now I can enjoy her each month. That is if I ever make any. I've been wanting to make some mini quilts to decorate around the house. I love to change things out each month so these mini quilts would be perfect. Plus, the designs are just so cute.

I have no appointments today so I am hoping to spend a good part of the day in the sewing room. The boys can eat leftovers from all the Super Bowl cooking I did yesterday. I'm itching to go and do a bit of fabric shopping though. JoAnn's has all their Valentine's fabric on sale right now and my stash could use some more reds and pinks.....
