Happy Birthday to Me & You

Each time we come together for a Festival I am overwhelmed by the response!  You all are so amazing – thank you for sharing your quilts and more importantly your stories that go with them.  I’ve had comments from some of you that started quilting or blogging (or both!) due to the inspiration found in past Festivals – they mean so much to me!  Thank you for telling me – I love knowing that my vision for this blog is coming to pass. :)

Today is my birthday!  I’m 33 years young this year and looking forward to another great year, full of blessings!  To celebrate with you, I am offering 25% off the two patterns I have listed on my patterns page.  One day only :)

    I was sooo unsure about entering – it seemed like something for real quilters but I've entered and it's been really really fun – thank you so much for the time and effort and happy birthday! What a lovely time of year for a birthday. X

    I hope you have a very happy birthday and are going to do something super fun. I have to say that you are still young. I'd love to be that age again. At the age of 33 I had not learned of my health problems that I deal with daily.

    Have a great birthday. Celebrate and do things YOU want to do.

    Your label cloud in the margin of your blog made me smile today: "My kids give away quilts in progress" – I had to go and point to the words to see if they were separate labels – fortunately they were ;-)
