“I’m so VAIN..”

“…I bet you think this birthday’s about you…Don’t you?  Don’t you? Yes, I’m soooo vain….”

Sew…I’m reading my favourite magazine… “Primitive Quilts and Projects”…enjoying ever quilt, project and wool penny…every morsel of quilting goodness…WHEN…P1180213

Imagine my surprise…no make that SHOCK…when I get to page 35…the Title at the top of the page reads HAPPY BIRTHDAY…I wonder who famous in the quilting world is having a birthday?…P1180214

I read on…WHAT the…?P1180216Can you READ IT?  Paulette, who turns 60 years young…and in April??  Could it be possible…Is there ANOTHER PAULETTE out there, who likes quilting and turned 60 this month?  OR could this possibly be… ME??  Nahhhh…but then.. how many Paulettes do you know?  I’ve only met ONE in all my 60 years…and she didn’t quilt!!  Do you know a quilting Paulette who turned 60 this month??  Told you…so until I hear otherwise I’m singing loud and clear…

“…I bet you think this birthday’s about YOU…Don’t you?  Don’t you? Yes, I’m soooo vain….”

P1180217

HEY wait a minute!!  …Look above my name…Marie, who volunteers at Liberty Mercantile in Oregon?…is that MY Marie?  Marie is a blogging buddy…although she doesn’t blog…just lurks.  Do you think it’s her?.. and  could SHE be behind all this?  OR is this not about any of us…?  The plot thickens…OR could our mutual friend, Synthia be behind all of this birthday hi-jinx??   Synthia, did you do this??  Or am I cracking up…too vain for even the song…

So I’m am left here scratching my head…with Carly Simon’s song stuck in my brain…sheeesh!  Any thoughts out there in blogland…?

Have a Super Sleuthing Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P

either way, Happy Birthday!

Anna said...

Holy Moly!!!!!! Batman!!!! I believe that Anne B. is our Anne B!!! wonder if she noticed? Bet it will come as a wonderful surprise when she reads your blog, lol

Synthia said...

Hey! I'm innocent. Yes, that's 'our' Marie and I suspect that she's behind the whole thing. That means YOU are THE Paulette and your secret age is now public information. I notice that Marie did not mention her age. hehehehe

Pokey said...

Why of course it's you, sweet Paulette! You wear it well...boy, I want to get my hands on this book!
:-}pokey

Darlene said...

Oh it's definitely all about you - it HAS to be. Of course, it must be. You can't convince me otherwise. :-)

You are too funny. I wasn't real impressed with this issue, I tend to like the smaller projects better. A lot of people like this one better, so it is all a matter of our personal likes, hard to please everyone;)

Yep, that's me, I had a awesome birthday, party at Ladies of Liberty and another at Synthia's. I'm older than you Paulette. No, it wasn't me who put you in the magazine. Sure is fun finding your name in print.

Anne said...

Yikes. Is that me mentioned too? Mine was last week. How did I miss that? Are we both vain thinking its all about us? Too funny!

Unknown said...

Happy Birthday Paulette! Hope you have a great one! I think birthdays are all about the person whose birthday it is. Now I can't get that song out of my head.

Mary said...

Too many coincidences??? It must be you. You are right the plot thickens!! Have fun with the mystery.

Anne said...

Heartsdesire said...

I say, just go with it! Of course it's you. Who else could it be?

Tammy said...

Wowzers! Teaches you to always read the "fine print" doesn't it. That's definitely referring to YOU!!

Ulla said...

Naturally it's you! Happy birthday!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

You're so sweet, I bet this birthday wish is about you....

Anonymous said...

Hey Paulette, Let me see....how many boxes of candles will it take? Another happy birthday to you is far better than the alternative so enjoy another fun filled year of quilting and wool gathering. You inspire all your blog followers.

Happy birthday! I own Ladies of Liberty Mercantile in Independence Oregon and Marie is "my Marie" as well! She is always sending me your blog to read - always good stuff! I had my 60th in January - not to bad of a age. Once again Happy Birthday. Diane

Sue and Doug said...

got to be you!..does this make you famous or infamous?

QuiltSue said...

How intriguing. Of course it is you - who else could it possibly be? I hope you didn't have a mug of coffee in your hand when you read it?

Marie said...

Hi, Paulette, well, my name is Marie and I am a quilter but not a blogger and it was not my birthday! I know another Paulette who is a wonderful quilting teacher in Kamloops and she just could be around your age! There you go, you are in good quilting company, take care.
Marie from Kamloops

Happy Birthday - with 60, you're allowed to celebrate for as long as you want to!! I plan on starting this month in preparation of my 60th birthday in August!!

I do know one other Paulette and she's a prolific quilter in Waldport OR and so-o fun to know - just like you!
