Twenty Eight


There’s something about getting older – birthdays just aren’t as exciting as they used to be when you’re a kid.  You wake up and meh, it’s just another day.  Nonetheless, I had a nice birthday, actually “week” last week!  Lots of coworkers wished me happy birthday at our sales meeting, I got a big birthday cookie from my manager, and Chris and I went out to dinner last night to a steak and sushi place I wanted to try – we got free ice cream on the house, too!

The above are gifts I got from my parents when I was home a few weeks ago (heck, it’s been a birthday month!!).  I think every birthday/Christmas in the past three years have all been sewing/knitting/crafting related – hey, it’s what I’m in to (however, Chris did give me a beautiful onyx jewelry set).  I got a giant rotary cutting mat for my cutting table, and now I can cover the entire surface with another mat I own and rotary cut out entire projects – score!!  David Coffin’s Shirtmaking book has been on my list for a while since I started sewing button-down shirts, and I’m excited to use the DVD to actually see the techniques in action.  And lastly, a new pair of Gingher snips – so much nicer than my little Fiskers.

Here’s to another year full of sewing goodness!

    Happy birthday/week/month! I'm 27 in July and am totally on the same page with your "meh"-ness. At least there's fun gifts to look forward to. 🙂 I usually also buy something(s) for myself as a little happy-birthday-to-me!
