Happy Birthday to Me!

I celebrated my birthday this weekend and had a wonderful time with my friends. I just wanted to do something low key, so a few friends came over for birthday cake, birthday pies, and fancy beer.

Birthday Stuff from Mom

My mom always sends me the best treats. I'm actually wearing all of them while talking on the phone with her in this picture. Let me tell you, the sweater came in handy, since I was battling a cold and was low on clean clothes!

My friends ignored the "no presents" request and really spoiled me. I got pretty earrings, vintage pattern books boasting nylon jumpsuits and faux-tuxedo knit jumpers, a gorgeous platter, cashmere mittens, a treat below from Purl Patchwork, watercolor brushes created for a queen, and a calendar showcasing outhouses.

Fabric from Olivia!

Thank you all for celebrating with me!
