So now I finally know what it feels like to be 45! LOL! It's a fact that Father Time has slowly been creeping up on me for quite some time now. For several years I've been paying my hair dresser to cover the gray in my hair and for at least five years I've been wearing reading glasses. During the past couple of years my vision has become so bad that I can't even read a price tag or see who's calling me on my cell phone. I'm not taking this "age thing" like a sissy, though. As a matter of fact, I'm fighting back! Next week I'm having LASIK eye surgery to help correct my vision so that I will at least be able to look at fabric and patterns in the quilt shops. I'll still pretend that I can't see the prices on the ends of the bolts as they go higher and higher!!!
So far it's been a pretty nice day. My friends and I went on our twice weekly bagel excursion to Einstein Bros. They gave me nice gifts like jewelry, peanut M&Ms and a gift certificate to a LQS. They're the greatest!!! Afterward, I stopped and had my nails done. They were starting to look pretty shabby, so this was a much needed (and much deserved, I might add) treat.
I just got a text message from College Girl telling me that she's heading home in less than an hour. I'm so excited to see her. She was last here over Labor Day weekend so it's been a while. This is her fall break, so she'll be here through Monday. Since I'm pretty sure that College Girl won't be reading my blog before she leaves it's probably safe to show you the quilt that I've been secretly making for her.
A few weeks back I got a text from her saying that she was freezing and needed a quilt. I guess a good mother would never have sent her DD off to college without a quilt, but what can I say...I'm somewhat of a slacker, I guess. So now when she arrives home this evening she'll have her own quilt to take back to her dorm.
This Turning Twenty quilt is made mostly from Fresh Cut fabrics by Heather Bailey (chek out her blog). I simply love the colors and designs. And I know that College Girl will love her new, very own quilt in which she can snuggle all winter long!!!
Tonight, after all the kids get home, we're heading out to dinner at our favorite tepanyaki steak house. It's been a long time since we've been there so I'm really looking forward to it.
Now I'm off to pick up the girls from school. Have a great day!!!
