Happy Birthday!!!

Well today is the day another year older and non the wiser. I had lunch with my mom and husband then went and had my hair cut and highlighted in hopes to hide the few gray hairs that seem to be showing up. 35 what a very scary number, but it does not mean I'm over the hill or close to death.

I got a Ott-light for the dark corner of my sewing area, quilt kit, and a new Teflon pressing sheet. The most awesome pumpkin pie body lotion and sugar & spice from Bath and body works. All in all it was a good day. But really looking forward to my annual trip to Lincoln to spend my birthday money at the quilt stores there. My husband and I have been doing this trip for several years. It is great to get to the big city.

On the quilty front. I managed to finish my corn for the Farmers Market quilt. I found Angelina hair the fuses to itself then can be stitched down it made excellent silk for the corn. I also put together the bumble bee block for Times Remembered.
I have been working on a 5" charm quilt using the Scardy Cat line from Moda. I hope to find tomorrow what I want to use for the borders, then I will be able to finish the top.

Tomorrow also starts another class. Tough to believe that the two weeks I took off from class is already gone and I seemed to not get everything done that I wanted to do. But at least I had a chance to recoup and am now ready to study some more. Not really I could use a couple more weeks vacation, but then I would probably decide a permanent vacation from school was in order so I'll just go to class in the morning or evening (whenever I have time to get to class). Got to love class online, can go when you feel like it and is convenient for you.

I love your corn and the "silk" is wonderful. I could not enlarge the other pic, but it looks great!!
