A Little Birthday Shopping

Yesterday I met a friend who shares my birthday at our local quilt shop, and we did a little stash enhancement to celebrate our special day. 


 I bought the Blackbird Designs book, Tending the Garden, and a few pieces of fabric for different projects that I either have planned or are already in the works.  When you shop on your birthday, you get half of your age discounted from your total purchase.  This is about the only time I can think that there is an advantage to being older.   The weather was beautiful, and it was a nice way to start a fun birthday.  

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!!!!

Pretty fabrics! And sweet birthday wishes to you.
An age discount, you say? First time being 70 doesn't make me feel blue:o)

Have a very fun celebration!

Well, Happy Birthday! I love your "fabric enhancements." It's our duty to help each other justify our fabric purchases. Fabric and a book with a friend sounds like my perfect birthday, too. Missed you at the Dear Jane Retreat this time...
