Today it is official, I am officially closer to 100 than I am to 50. I don't understand how this happened so soon. It seems like such a short time ago that I was starting Kindergarten.
I can remember a time, long ago, when I thought that I would arrive at my final age ( whenever that will be) pretty much intact and not much different in appearance or ability than I ever was. I also remember when I realized that I was mistaken. Probably about the time I got my first pair of eye glasses. Now when I look in the mirror I see my mother there only she looks older than me.
I have been blessed with good health with only minor difficulties that go along with aging. I wear glasses but I can still understand what I read and I can see to sew. My hearing isn't what it used to be but I thank God for hearing aids. I have minor aches and pains but I can walk without difficulty and I go to the Y 3 or 4 times a week to exercise. I can eat whatever I want and it doesn't bother me except for what ends up on my hips. My hair has been gray/white for about 30 years and now my age finally caught up with my hair. Though my hair no longer supports the hairstyles I would like but I still have enough to have some style. I am not going to talk about the wrinkles as I don't see them in dim light without my glasses. There are a lot of things I don't care much about doing anymore but I can still do most of the things I want to do. So maybe I am not over the hill yet, maybe I am just running walking along the ridge.
Well, enough about my birthday!
I got my room cleaned up last week and I got my shopping finished.
I spent a couple of days making these. I made 9 of them and used up most of my fat quarter pack of Bliss. I love the fabric, it is a nice change from the darker fabric I had been working with.
I am going to put all my sewing stuff away now for a few days, wrap presents, and get organized for Christmas.Tthe only stitching I plan to do is some hand quilting on the BIG UFO that is still taking up floor space in my sewing room. It is still in the hoop because we didn't get the Q snap frame out of the locker and it is once again behind other stuff. Actually the hoop isn't bad and doesn't take up as much room as the frame.
