Birthdays!

30 Jun

Lizze had her birthday on Monday. I won’t tell how old she is because a lady never reveals her age. We spent the day on the waterfront in Seattle. We had a wonderful seafood lunch at Anthony’s. The sun was shining and we sat outside on the deck. They serve a key lime martini so you know we had to try one. It was very tasty, but super sweet.
After our wonderful lunch, we stopped at an Irish pub to have another drink before heading down to the market to get tickets for the Toadies concert at the end of July.
My daughter is also having a birthday soon. She’s going to be 9 next week. Her name is Alice, and Alice complains very frequently that I never make her anything. She has spent the last few days in Yakima with her grandparents so while she has been gone, I’ve been working on a birthday quilt. It’s nearly done. I only have about half of the binding left to hand stitch down. I hope she loves it. After I started working on it, she said that she hates pink. Either she will be very happy with it, or you will see it listed for sale in our shop next week.

Happenings for Today

18 Jun

Today is a busy day for me. I have a quilt in the works that is almost complete and ready to list for sale. It’s the cutest camping themed fabric. It’s a small quilt, perfect for a crib or toddler bed, or even just that special blankie for your little one. I can’t wait to have it finished!

I am running low on quilt batting so I need to go get some more of that today as well. When I say low, I mean, I have about 5 yards left. If that. Talk about waiting until the last minute!

And, of course summer break is here. Does it feel like summer out there? Anyone? My kids are home all day and it’s too cold to send their little bums outside! I may go insane before month’s end. Grocery shopping is on my agenda for the day. Have you ever taken four children to a grocery store? I’d almost rather starve to death.

Lizze has a birthday coming up. I worked on her gift yesterday and got it all done. Now I just have to wait until June 28th to give it to her. I hate waiting to give people their gifts. I’m always very impatient about that sort of thing. Especially if I know it is something they will love, and I know she will love this! We also plan to go to the Seattle Waterfront that day and have lunch at one of the many wonderful seafood restaurants they have. We are still undecided as to which one we’d like to go to. Then we’ll come home, drink booze, and eat cake!

Speaking of things I am impatient about, I might be moving soon. My husband has been offered a chance (as well as a couple other managers) at running a new restaurant. He has said yes, but now we are waiting for the “big bosses” to talk amongst themselves to decide who will go. I can’t stand the waiting. Moving involves many details. First and foremost, selling my home. Which in this market, I can’t say that I’m looking forward to that. If we get the new store we will be packing our bags and moving back to Yakima. Our hometown. My beloved. I’m trying not to get my hopes up just in case it doesn’t work out, but I am failing miserably! If anyone is looking for a 1700 square foot home with a 2-car garage, 3 bedrooms, 2.25 bathrooms, with a huge yard on South Hill in Puyallup, I may have one available soon 😉 A new sewing room would be nice. And a swimming pool. They have sunshine in Yakima!
