I was going to show you what I got in New York. Not much....but I did get some gorgeous New York fabric from the City Quilter. And huge bonus, if you can't make it to the store, you can order online!!! They have their own line of NY fabric!
These are the fat quarters I got....subway fabric,
and these fabulous artsy-fartsy prints.
Someone asked what I was going to make with them, and I said MAKE??? I'm going to put them on a shelf and pet them now and then. That's it.
I also got these slippers at the
I spotted them, and by that time, my feet were so sore even walls of candy couldn't tempt me - but memory foam slippers? Couldn't get them fast enough.
A few of you asked if I was in any of the pictures. Well, yes. Yes I was. We're fortunate the camera survived. Did you ever think you looked one way, then saw a picture of yourself, and almost had to ask "who's THAT?" Ew. Well, that's me. This is why I didn't show any pics of me....
That's my back, in the red shirt. I had my hair in one of those bun clips, and thought it looked just fine. *snort* I look like I have an alien attacking my hair. It looks messy and wiry and just plain old. Trust me, the front is worse. So. Much. Worse.
So today, I cut 6 inches off my hair, got out my trusty flat iron and went to town. I'll get a pic one of these days. MUCH better.
But that's not all. In the pictures, I realized I'm growing wings. You know, that excess that some women get on their upper arms....didn't know I shouldn't be wearing sleeveless shirts, but I do now! Heaven help me I'm getting old. I also broke out the dumbbells today. Don't know if it will help but it sure can't hurt, right? Listen girls, if you're under 40, get busy. Start working out. Don't make me show you my arms. I'll be 54 next year and most of the time, I don't know it - I still think of myself as young and thin, until I see the proof. The older you get, the more your mind plays tricks on you!
I'm staying home tomorrow, I don't know how to act - such a rare occurrence anymore! I think there might be some sewing going to happen, whoopee! Have a great Friday, everyone, hope you get to sew too!
