Birthdayness

Last night was the birthday bash, and in true Sarah fashion, I did not take a single picture. *gasp!* Luckily, I didn't clean up last night and took a few pictures of the aftermath for you folks who weren't able to join in the fun. (yes, we are rubbing it in....NEXT year, let's make it happen.)

We made zippered pouches, mini notebooks, the obligatory 9 patch for my 31 squared birthday quilt (we are still 11 short, but that brings us to the issue of child labor....), newborn caps and covered button bobbies. I just loved having all of my fabulous friends, old and new, under one roof. I am truly blessed. The most fun part for me in the planning? Putting together presents for my guests. I chose small and simple things that I love. (Think of Oprah's list, but *way* cheaper.) Old copies of my favorite books, bottles of my favorite shades of spray paint, material...you get the idea. I enjoyed getting them altogether and I hope all of my friends will find unique ways to incorporate them into their homes.







The key to success: banishing the kids to a tent out back. There were a few infiltrations, but overall, it worked fabulously.

Put me down for next year! That looks like so much fun! And maybe I'll work on my bias tape skillz and you can put in an order...

I love the idea of banishing children. Sign me up for next year. Hopefully my life will be a little less crazy!!

It looks like a really great party. Wish I lived closer. I didn't realize how close together our birthdays are! (Mine was Friday).

Hugs!

Note: Sometimes it is good to leave messes to set a while. I woke up from a nap (turns out that 5 hours isn't enough sleep) and Autumn was sewing different projects from last night. And tonight, while dad and Rachel enjoy Tevye, we shall sew some more. We'll call it Sarah's Birthday Bash, part 2. (children invited.)
