You're Invited!

Hey, guess what? Today's my BIRTHDAY! Woo-hooo!!!

My non-quilting friends think I'm nuts, but I'm sure you'll understand that for my birthday, I can't think of anything more fun than spending most of the day and evening sewing.

Gran usually has Friday afternoon tea and stitching at the quilt shop on the last Friday of the month, but this month, because there's a class on the last Friday, she's having tea TODAY--and we're having a birthday party theme, because not only is it MY birthday, but two of the other ladies who regularly attend have birthdays very soon too. We're going to have a white elephant gift exchange and I found something at the thrift store to bring. It's going to be fun!

After tea, I'm going to swing by one of our favorite Chinese restaurants and pick up dinner--take out. Why take out? Because it's the Friday Night Sew In!

The last two Friday Night Sew Ins that I participated in, I didn't really get to spend the WHOLE, entire evening quilting, so this will be a real treat. And you're invited, of course! We'll have a blast and we'll celebrate my birthday, okay? I'll even share my virtual cake with you--no calories, I promise!


Of course, if you want, you can have REAL cake and it's totally and completely justified but there probably WILL be calories. Anyway, I hope to see you there!
