I have so much to say about the craft show, but I'm going to make a separate post for that. Today I'd like to share a moment when today's events came together... and I got a sequintastic surprise.
Of course, Mr. Sequin and I told all our friends that we'd be doing our first show. Several people showed up, including my friend Audrey of Hot Pink Quilts. And she had a present for me! This amazing quilted wall hanging, made by Audrey's hot pink hands and fantastic sewing machine (whose name is Agatha, in case you were curious).

When she showed up, I have to confess that I was caught up in the excitement of the show, and I'd forgotten it was my birthday. What a beautiful reminder! I love the colors she used, especially the middle square.
(The fabric looks like pink sequins!)

Thank you, Audrey, for a wonderful present, which I will proudly display in my room!
Today there was also leftover Thai food for lunch, a trip to the IDEA store where I bought some incredible rainbow fabric and some shell-shaped sequins, and a dinner of Greek food from our favorite Greek place, courtesy of Mr. Sequin.
There were also birthday wishes from our friend Andrea and several of my beady friends, which warmed my sparkly little heart. I'm a lucky gal to have so many amazing friends!
Stay tuned for a post on the craft show. I'll start writing that tomorrow, once I've slept a dozen hours or so. Thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, and thanks for helping to make this birthday a special one!
And as always... have a sequintastic day! <3
