Happy Birthday to me!

What a fun way to spend National Quilting Day (and the day before my birthday)!  2 quilt shops, an art quilt gallery, 5 fun friends, lots of laughter, a scenic drive, some yummy food, and some fun purchases!


Between the two shops I picked up this pile of gorgeous fabric...ALL ON SALE!


I couldn't pass up this cute covered button-style magnet (bought at the Visions Art Quilt Gallery).  See the stitching on it?  And these stylish embroidery scissors.


And I thought it was about time that I bought myself a pair of machine quilting gloves.  I'm excited to give them a try!

And since it's my birthday today, I'm sharing the love with a giveaway!    IMG_8483

If you win, you can choose 2 of these fabrics and I'll send 1/2 yard of each to you!  And remember that covered button magnet and the cute pair of scissors?  They are yours too!

All you have to do to be entered into the random drawing is leave me a comment here on this post telling me which 2 fabrics you would choose.  (If you happen to have already left me a comment on my last 3 posts, I'm going to give you an extra entry for each comment!)  Make sure I have a way to reach you if you happen to get picked!  It doesn't matter where you live...if you win, I'll send it there!

Thanks for celebrating my birthday with me.


And since I love birthday festivities to last longer than one day, I'm going pick a winner on Thursday morning.

Thanks for playing!

Happy Birthday, It looked as if you had lots of fun. I love the fabrics, and if I do win, could I choose then rather than make a choice now. Enjoy all of your birthday gifts.
