Saturday afternoon, the hubby took the kids sneaker shopping and to the movies while I had a spa day with some girlfriends. There were supposed to be 9 of us, but many people had things come up, so it was just 3 of us, but we had a ball, nonetheless. First, we had facials and she put some make-up on us. Hilarious, since I don't wear make-up nor know how to apply it. Yup, (nearly) 40 years old and I've had make-up on my face a sum total of about 5 times in my life. Here we are all dolled up.
I am still not a convert, but it was fun. Oh, and see that necklace I am wearing? I made it from fabric and batting scraps a few weeks ago when I was procrasting from hand quilting. I'll never make another, but it was a fun enough diversion.
Anyway, after facials, it was on to hands, and then feet.
I promise you, my feet have never been this soft since I started walking!
Sunday was the birthday party for the woman for whom I was making the Ticker Tape Quilt, so I worked on that nearly all day. This was truly a quick and easy project, and I will definitely be making another. I pulled it out of the dryer on my way out the door to the party - just in the nick of time. I like the way the back looks:
And I'm pleased with how the front turned out as well:
She seemed happy with it as well - here she is pointing out to those assembled that the colors represent the colors of the belts we earn in karate.
