Well...I made it!!!
I had been fretting (to put it lightly) over the past few weeks about turning 40, but I woke up on Friday with a sense of calm and accomplishment. It was akin to being pushed up to the edge of a pool that you weren't really sure was going to be a comfortable temperature, being pushed in, and realizing that all that fuss and resistance was down right silly. The sense of accompishment is still a bit harder to put into words yet;)
And yes, Katie, the hubby went out of his way to make sure I enjoyed myself that day. He put together a really nice spread for a party he pulled together. We had a few friends over the night before. Nothing like the roaring 20's parties we had back in the day, but a nice gathering nonetheless;) Then on Friday he took me on the Metro Shop Stroll, aka a shop hop;) It only had four quilt shops participating, but it was still fun;)
I picked up a few goodies on the shop hop...
You know me...finding the odd stuff;) This is a new one out by Alexander Henry. I love it! The macabre version of that stuffy toile;) Too much;)
Then the hubby spotted this and fell in love with it....
He wants this to be "his" quilt;)....here are some closer shots....
I think they are hilarious;)
But anyway, I have so much to do today....like taking a shower for one;) No really, I need to get back to work on that southwest quilt....it's driving me nuts that it is taking so long.
