Well people, that’s it. I turned 40 on Monday. I’m officially more than half way through my life, or on the boat back, as my husband would say. In fact I think I have been on the boat back for a few years already! The only good thing about this is that the lovely Andrea & I are having a party to usher in our 40s on Saturday. We’ve got a DJ with an amazing set of lights, a band and finger buffet – what’s not to love? All in a cricket club in Maidenhead!
We shared our 18th birthday together too with a party, but as we walked around Costco buying food yesterday, neither of us could remember who exactly was there and what happened! It had a theme though, it was a red party. Someone wore a tomato around their neck, I do remember that at least, and Andrea had pillar box red hair and red patent DMs. Wish I had some photos… or maybe not, goodness only knows what I was wearing 🙂
So this morning I’m having my locks dyed, thank God, as I have had to wear a hat for the last two weeks to hide my inch long grey roots and the said locks will be chopped tomorrow morning. I’m hoping this will wipe the years away in one sweep (I can dream on….).
Anyway, that’s what I have been up to, and a bit of sewing here and there… I have joined a couple of new bees, one British and one international. I’m loving Svea’s idea for a quilt for her son – ‘To Boldly Go…’ a space themed quilt. She sent me two F8s, one of which I completely ruined with a paper piecing false start, fortunately I have quite a bit of starry fabric so these are my donations to the quilt for this month.
Have a great weekend people! I’m hoping to surface somewhere around Tuesday 🙂
