My Turn-It's All About Me! Me! Me!

Today it's my turn to show you what I created for the "It's All About Me" blog hop. This is the pattern that Amy Bradley created for us.



Before I go any further I would like to give my thanks to Mdm Samm for always creating such fun blog hops, Marlene for hosting and cheering us on this event, and Amy Bradley for providing the cute pattern.

I'm a native Californian, a Baby Boomer and lucky enough to be retired. At this time in my life it is All About Me (and my DH of course).


I am BLESSED and am grateful for every blessing in my life. My daily 'uniform" is jeans, a t shirt (or sweatshirt, sweater depending on the weather) and my sunglasses.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you take some time to look around before you go on to visit:

  26. Right along with you with being a boomer, retired and the uniform being t-shirts and jeans. I love that you dressed your "ME" that way.

    How did you create the logo on the t-shirt, I wonder?

  36. Hi Ronda-Love your version of AB It's All About Me! We wear the same uniform, jeans, T-shirt or sweatshirt-I've been wearing a turtle-neck as even here in the Bay Area it hasn't been that warm. I see you take classes at QP. My sister and I have been going on Shop Hops but they haven't included QP. We're planning on going on the Quilt Rush in April which goes through the North Central Valley down to Stockton. Last year went went in the mid-Central Valley down to Turlock, which has a great quilt store. Thanks for sharing. Rosemary

  65. Your pillow is adorable. Since I'm no longer employed outside the home, it's jeans and a tee for me and usually a hoodie - year round. I live in OK where it's usually pretty warm (of course, a snow is headed here tonight) and now I'm usually cold most of the time, hence the hoodie for comfort. I love seeing the creativity of all who have taken time from busy lives to participate, educate, and inspire. I hope you'll participate in more hops.
