    Very pretty fabrics, Late Happy Birthday. I prefer to buy my own gifts. I always buy what I like, for my birthdays or any other day.

    Thank you all for the good wishes. I really did have a very nice birthday besided what my MIL gave me.

    Really CarolinePaj? "hoard"?lol Oh, you know me too well!!rotfl

    Actually my MIL found a pic in one of the books of Sunbonnet Sue. She went on and on about a baby quilt her mother had made for her when her first was born. she doesn't know what happened to the quilt but my DH and I thought it would be nice if I made her a new Sue for Christmas. Not sure how I want to applique it so I started another thread on that.

Yes, that was more than the $40 but hey, it's my birthday and Mother's day so, who's counting!
    YOU GO GIRL!!! Happy Birthday.
