Life is always better with chocolate, and fabric!

I feel like today is my birthday or something. My mother in law texted this morning to see if the kids wanted to come play at her house and on her playground for a bit this morning. Yes please. And, she made lunch for me for when I came to pick them up. YUM. And, my in laws are planning to take my kids to see the new Monsters University movie tonight.

It is always great to live near family.

The icing on the cake is that this was in my mailbox today:

It’s my swap fabric from the rainbow swap I did. Seeing a package in the mailbox is always fun!

Maybe everyone is celebrating my un-birthday today… Oh YEA!

Now I just need some chocolate cake and the day will be made.

This is my second go round with this swap, so I have lots of squares. There are a few quilts I would love to make with all this wonderful color, but I keep getting the itch to design something new.

We shall see.

Here’s what I’ve had my eye on lately:

Oh Pinterest, How I Love Thee

No, I am not working for Pinterest.

But, seriously, if you are a visual person, and happen to love organization as well as the internet, then you will LOVE pinterest.

I am officially addicted.

Here is a link to my pinterest, there is also a link added to my bar up there.

Say goodbye to your every growing favorite/bookmark/tag list (that doesn’t have photos), and welcome the eye candy!

PS: There’s a new pattern coming soon! I know, I finally got some ‘free time’.
