Have you ever visited the Missouri Star Quilt Co? They have a blog, tutorials, videos, a quilt shop and the best yet... A DAILY DEAL... Yes, at midnight the deal changes..It could be a jelly roll or a layer cake or a notion or like today it's a charm pack of Awesome by Sandy Gervais for Moda. Click over to see the price.... I have a button on my tool bar that says "Missouri Star Quilt Co." and it's the first thing I click on when I open my computer in the morning. Day before yesterday I got there early! And found that the daily deal was a jelly roll of Arcadia by Sanae for Moda. It was, are your ready? $7.77...yes... $7.77 for a whole complete jelly roll.and they have $5 shipping no matter what you order.. and guess what!! It already has friends waiting for it to arrive.
One of the local quilt shops was going out of business and I bought a hank of yardage because i loved it so much... yes a hank... like that's a lot... and I can't wait for it to show up...

Nothing on the agenda today....except....


IT'S THE SON'S BIRTHDAY!!!

He made me update his photo over there on the sidebar a couple of days ago..

Aren't I too old to have an 18 year old???!!!

That's what I thought..

I spent yesterday having a small outpt procedure, getting his birthday present and buying an already roasted chicken for my dinner. Well, ok. I didn't really eat the whole chicken, but when the hubs is out of town I can eat roasted chicken for 4 meals and be perfectly happy with a side of veggies...

We have no plans for his birthday today. We will take him and his girlfriend out to dinner tonight and I think I will go by and get him an ice cream cake. That's what he wanted for graduation, but there were too many people invited...

Maybe I'll be able to snap a few photos...

Happy Birthday to the Son. My, my doesn't the time fly. And NO we are not too old to have 18 year olds. That's what is supposed to keep us young, remember ;-)

Happy birthday to the son. You got some great deals. I just found out recently that Missouri Quilt Company is in Hamilton, MO. That is about 50-60 miles away from me, so I may have to make a trip there some day. Have a great day. Winona
