Second date

Tell me how you feel about this comment on the second date. This coming from a professional, successful airline pilot of a major airlines who claims to be a "Christian".

 "Take your bra off so I can see your titty's under your shirt".

The date was over.  God help us.

Back to being a non-dating person.....

First Date

I'm dying to spill the beans that I had my official first date after my traumatic and well-deserved divorce! After a year of being alone, I met someone and yesterday we 'went out'.

Dying here,,,,,,who would think a woman my age would be giddy!  It feels just like high school, I must say.

Shall I tell you about him?

Here I am on his sailboat. What fun I had!

He's a pilot for a major airline, he is one year older than me. He is fit, he is good looking, he was fun. And the best part is that there was definitely a mutual attraction......just saying....

Make-up bag completed!

Here is my medium size make-up bag finished and in use! It is completely vinyl to stay clean from all my messy accidents while traveling.

another bag

I got a bit side-tracked because of the error the printer did. I had taken the pattern to a printer to have them enlarge it to 400%. I cut out fabric all evening and when I was putting it together I knew there was something wrong, I paid nearly  $30 for this stupid printer and I think they only enlarged it to 200%. I wasted lots of fabric and time. I decided to use the scraps for potholders. Not quite finished but here is the start with my "new-old initials". (I went back to my other name, I would like to erase the past 5 years from my life, especially anything to do with that name).

I bought all this vinyl fabric for some bags and I couldn't help but start. I have the panels for the outside and the lining finished. Next is the zipper. The lining is the houndstooth in the background. Isn't that the cutest fabric.? I'm not using it for a eyeglass case though, but I have enough fabric to do that. I plan to use it for makeup. I needed a cute bag for my cute bathroom in my very cute apartment. I think my daughter will love this bag too and I will probably have to make one for her and also my daughter-in-law. I don't why I love making these bags, but I sure do....

First Block

Here is the first block of the Drunk Love quilt. What do you think? Too bright? The pink will stay but I'm thinking of trying Kona mustard with it.

inspiration bag

Today I went to Pacific Fabrics on 4th Avenue to find me some solid Kona fabric for the Denyse Schmidt quilt.  I think I went a little crazy. I wanted bright, and I love this shopping bag I use around town.

Not sure if the colors will show up correctly but it is a orange and bright pink strap. I found some of the organic fabric in the colors that looked good next to the bag, and I went for it. Now that I am home, I am blinded by the brightness! Holy moly! They are in the wash right now, surely they will fade once I wash it a few times. The back is probably going to be a turquoise. That ought to tone it down a bit. Yeah right.

Another beautiful day in Seattle!
