I have been working 50-hr weeks for the past month. I am not complaining--I am super busy and time goes by fast. But I have no time during the week to do anything other than work.
So when I checked my email at 5:00 a.m. on Cyber Monday, I could not resist the 50% off + free shipping from my favorite clothing site and I clicked it just to see what was available (even though I just told you all that I was not going to buy any more clothing). Sometimes I lie :)
Can you believe I found quite a few items that I felt would work great in my current wardrobe? I know you are probably shocked,but I did indeed find all of these items:
Lots of layering pieces and one necklace.
I also decided early in the week to get my nails done as DH wanted to give that to me for an early birthday gift. It's been two years since I removed my acrylic nails and I am getting tired of short ugly stumps....so I decided to have them put back on.
Here they are against my current machine-quilting project--kind of a two for one pic :).
The quilt is one I pieced a few years ago and was going to hand quilt. I started to hand quilt it two months ago, but never returned to it. I finally decided to just use the machine for some simple straight line quilting. I don't seem to have the ambition to spend months hand quilting any more. I guess it's better just to get them done on the machine so I can use them. I hope to get it finished this weekend.
I can't believe tomorrow is Friday already. I do have to work a bit on Saturday, but after that I intend to go home and stay for the rest of the weekend. Maybe I can find a place to hang that wreath I made on Thanksgiving day.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
