Progress report on the DD

Well, I guess the picture says it all! This is where I am in putting together Bonnie of Quiltville's DD mystery quilt. Lots of little seams to match there, but it is going together well. Seems like I am slower than I used to be!!

Other news of note is that I went to my DS's and D to-be DIL's bridal shower...it was such fun! I got a manicure and pedicure... FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER! Pretty cool, huh? This old farm girl is just not used to all that pampering...it was really fun to do...once!

Have a happy day!!

Julie, that quilt is so pretty...looks like lots of work has gone into it...and much more to come. Who is going to be the lucky recipient?

I am like you...had my first manicure and pedicure about three weeks ago...it was my birthday present from my sweet husband. Talk about making you feel pampered...wow it did.

Coming along quite well. And you got to use stash for it. I think it looks ok with those fabrics.

Manicures and Pedicures and bridal showers... not too long till the wedding now? How stressful was it shopping for a MOG outfit?

I've caught up on your posts. Sorry to hear about your co-worker's passing.

I think we're all going to admire the DD when it's done my friend. And what a great treat for you to have some female pampering. Yeah!

Your top looks great . . . . it's going to be a whole quilt in just the blink of an eye.

I love pedicures - relaxing and something pretty to take home *s*

The quilt is looking fantastic. My motto slow and steady wins the race. They colors and pattern are great.

I have had a couple of manicures and pedicures and I have really liked them. They are a special treat for those special times. I am glad you went and also had fun too!

Your quilt is looking terrific, Julie!!! I love this color scheme! Bonnie will be tickled.

That is a fantastic idea for a bridal shower! Good for you. Hope this was a first of many pampering sessions for you and your sweet DIL to-be to share.

Hugs to you!

I have had manicures but never a pedicure. My mom keeps trying to get me to have one. Maybe this summer....
Your DD quilt is gorgeous. I love the Indigos!

Nicole said...

What a lot of wonderful piecing! Love that quilt.
I have been economizing and have given up pedicures for the winter. I give myself about two more weeks before I cave in and go get one!
