I am 30. And I am now OK with saying that. For awhile I wasn't... but that's a long story and not one I want to get into right now.

30, flirty and thriving!

I wish I was as awesome as these women that are the same or close to my age but I'm not. Something to aspire to!
Elizabeth at
Christina at
Ryan at (I know, not a woman but he does amazing things at 29!)
Rachel at (only 27!) I am following her pinwheel sampler quilt along but I am very behind
There were a couple more that I wanted to include but my brain is telling me that it's Friday, it's been a long week and it time to stop thinking!

Anyway, there are some amazing people out in blogland. I love seeing what they create. It makes me wish that I had more time to pursue my crafty endeavors. This weekend, I am going to be sewing up a storm. I have a lighter load of homework and I have already scheduled a date with my sewing machine for the second I get home from work today! (shhhh, don't tell my boss I am blogging at work)

I wanted to share a couple of things from my birthday with you. My parents listened and got me some Heather Ross gnomes from Spoonflower!!! And tickets to see Glee in Phoenix!

This book was made by my mom for me when I was little. I asked her about the pattern and she said she created most of the pictures herself and worked on this when I was napping. I included some of my favorite pages.

The cat and the tree are corduory. I remember playing with this as a kid and Crafty Momma found this in a box somewhere recently. I noticed that part of the photos are cut off so to see the whole thing, click on the picture. Otherwise, you will be looking at the picture saying "What tree is she talking about?"

Also, I saw this article recently and thought you might like to read it too. It's about long-haul truckers that quilt (and knit) during their downtime IN their trucks!
