I have had very little time in the sewing room...There has been a lot going on around here...
I turned fifty on Monday..What do I think about it? Well, it is so new, I haven't figured it out yet but when I do, I will let you know. I may have a lot to say about it. Not sure if it will be good or bad but right now, I just think that fifty is better than dead.
My grandson Daniel has been staying with me for the last three weeks and we have been busy. After work, I take him swimming, we went and saw Cowboys and Aliens at the movies, and we have went camping twice. I take him to Boise to meet my oldest daughter Stacie halfway on Sunday. We are getting a hotel and both going our separate ways again on Monday. I haven't seen her in two and a half years and I am sure it will be a sob fest for a while. I am packing the commercial size of tissues for our reunion. I miss her a lot, but we are so close that I always feel her with me and that makes it easier.I am really excited about seeing her and also my little Olivia, who is coming with her! What is nice for Olivia is I can bring her all the little things that she forgot at her maga's house!
I have made a few things for the enchanted mermaid swap. I was so late I feel bad. I did let my partner know....but this is the first time I have been really late for anything so I hope she will forgive me!
I made her some mermaid cards from my painting and Daniel made her a journal while I sewed a fish and a sea star ornament.
Also a sewn mermaid ornament....I sewed then painted the face and she got a little murky, but I figure she could be swimming in murky water so hey, it works for me.
Then I whipped out a little mug rug....My first one and these are fun and fast! I fee motioned the mermaid and it was so small I had to wear my super duper high power reading glasses! you know, cause I am fifty... remember? I was worried I wouldnt be able to make it look like a mermaid, but it worked!
Anyway all, Happy Summer from this newly fifty year old person, where in my world it is summer every day, every season, every hour thanks to hot flashes.....Cause you know I am fifty now........sigh.
