Thanks for all the offers of sympathy after my bikini waxing incident. I have decided that once one reaches a certain age, a bit of hair on the upper thigh is not going to be noticed. By anyone.
And the glass of wine in the picture was for medicinal purposes AFTER I caused myself the injury. Just so you know. Mmmm hmmm.
The quilt you see in the photo above is Opening Day, a pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. A fabulous pattern, that deserves to be made more than once. I used a not-so-Christmassy looking Christmas fabric called Roman Holiday by 3 Sisters for Moda. What a dynamite combination: a Miss Rosie pattern and any fabric designed by 3 Sisters. I have another quilt in the pipeline to be quilted that is that same magic combination---Summerwind by Miss Rosie using Wuthering Heights by 3 Sisters.
The quilting on Opening Day was done by the awesome Debbie of Prairiequeens. This quilt is going on my bed for the entire month of December! Sure wish I had used my Fit to be Geese ruler by Monique of Open Gate when I made this quilt!
Sophie and I start our second week on our own in the house. Last week went just fine, with us girls striking up a rhythm of meals, exercise, sleeping, and snuggling. No more home beauty treatments for awhile though. I succumbed to eating junk food quite a bit, which has got to change this week. I plan to make a pot of some kind of yummy soup to eat in the evenings, along with a little salad. It is amazing how easy it is to resort to fast food or something pre-made instead of taking the time to thoughtfully prepare a proper meal for oneself when alone. Hey, I'm worth it!
