Do you spend your B-day in Stitches?

It's only 8:53AM and my B-day couldn't get any better. Today is my birthday (No I will not be sharing my actual age, but I love that the little guy told his class I am going to be 26. I heart him). I came downstairs to the kids singing happy B-day to me and got some really FABULOUS homemade card from the kids (The big guys was just as great, just store bought), a huge list of HB's on Facebook, a massage and pedicure (can't wait!) and some serious stash!

It got me thinking how I was going to spend the day. Gracie's end of the year school pageant is tonight and we are so excited to see her sing her song she's been rehearsing for weeks in secret in her room at night and do her thing on stage. Emma has playgroup and I still have to bake cookies for tonight. Besides going to the post office, get some office work done and possibly throw in some laundry at some point is this different than any other day?

I feel the need to celebrate in stitches. Sound crazy? Not really, right (: Every year I pick a small project to accomplish on my B-day. A few years ago it was a Merry Cox piece that I just LOVED and I actually did the finishing (please note ~ it was my first try, probably should have left it up to Ronnie, but I am glad I tried at least this one time.) Today I am starting the Stitching Treasure Box with Sheep Waxer by Homespun Elegance. I heart it and it is the perfect quick to stitch project to commemorate this FABULOUS year I am about to embark on!

So how do you commemorate your B-day? Do you do it in stitches?


  1. What a great idea. There is no better way to celebrate your birthday than to stitch on it. I stitch almost every day, but to do a little one to finish that day is a good idea. I will try it on my next BD. Happy Birthday

  2. I can't think of a better way to spend your birthday than to sit and stitch. That's what Birthday's are for to us stitchers. Mine is on Monday and since it's the holiday, I'm hoping that I can stitch and sew to my hearts content. HOPE YOUR WHOLE DAY IS FILLED WITH STITCHING FUN!!
