We are 50-something... today!

Yes, it's that time again. Fifty-something years ago today (OK, 52), my twin sister and I were born. Earlier today, mother and I drove over to sis's house, where sis had prepared a tasty birthday lunch. Sis gave me a 3 DVD set Finding Bigfoot for our birthday. So thoughtful, and much appreciated. Pictured above is the baggie holder that I made for her. There is a pocket on the apron to hold coupons and a pair of scissors (for those of us who still clip paper coupons instead of scanning with the smartphone, lol). She loves cats, so this is a perfect choice for her. Do you ever search through your many years of stashed patterns to find just one? Well, that is what happened here. Way back in my stash was this now OOP McCall's 9120 pattern. Some pattern pieces are missing, so I had to improvise a bit. Sis loves the color blue, and her kitchen is blue & yellow. It is truly so wonderful to have a twin to relate to. Twins are actually quite common, and some of you are twins or have twin sisters/brothers. How special is that?

Guess what- my daughter & granddaughter also came to visit me today! What a wonderful birthday it is! They arrived earlier this morning, and brought a cake for me. A girl could get used to being spoiled like this. There were also some birthday cards in the mail for me, so thank you to the friends & family who sent those. Being 52 really isn't going to be so bad after all. Prim blessings and thanks to you all.

  1. Happy birthday to you and your twin sister! I love knowing twins. My daughter Rebekah's beau Zach has a twin sister and they are so very different and yet so very similar. I could write a post all the twins I do know. Glad you and your sis had a good day and enjoyed the company of each other. A tasty lunch and gift exchanges. A birthday cake and family, a good day for a birthday. Take care.

  2. I didn't know or I would have mailed you a card. My Birthday is tomorrow and I get to go out for Breakfast. Then I hope to sew the rest of the day away! I'm pushing the next BIG Number, you're just a babe. 52 was a good year for me.
