It's My Birthday and I'll Quilt If I Want To!

Ok, I hope you sang along with me!  Not only is it my birthday (and I love birthdays almost as much as Christmas), it's also Thanksgiving weekend for we Canadians (yay for a long weekend!) and it's also a day that I plan to participate in the Christmas Quilt Along.   QuiltSue hosted last month, and today it is hosted by Cathi at Shakerwood Quilts.  Drop by and join the fun.  I joined a little too late in the game to do the project some of the others are working on;  instead I will share and enjoy the Christmas spirit and goodwill and spend the day sewing on my Christmas Schnibble.  You can never be too early for Christmas!

I am so spoiled...I awoke to a dozen red roses greeting me...I will pamper myself and be pampered for the whole day.  How great is that!

But before I go to my sewing room, just wanted to share my finished block 2 of the Christmas Sew Happy Sew Along.  Want to try it yourself? Click on the button to find out more and join the crew! ( If you have been reading my posts, you have probably noticed that I have been able to add some buttons, but I seem to have a problem with the size of the buttons.  They don't seem to be a standard size.  Any ideas on how to fix this? 

Here is the "Love and Kisses" block:

I downloaded the pattern for block 3 yesterday called "Dear Santa" is so cute!  Plan to get that started today as well!

I hope you all have as wonderful a day as I plan to!


  1. Happy birthday to you ...

    I finished block 2 of the SAL yesterday, and have block 3 printed out and ready to trace. In fact I might do that while I'm waiting for my cake/biscuit things to finish baking.

  2. Happy Birthday, Lesley! Sounds like you have wonderful plans!! Enjoy!

  3. Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to YOOOUUUU!!! Happy Birthday to you !! I'm so glad (I might of helped) you get roses. :):):) Have a great day!! Hugs-- Sandie
