It didn't bother me too much to see the "Bionic Woman" doing mattress commercials. However, I just saw the Bionic Man doing a hearing aid commercial. What kind of commentary is that on time flying by? I guess we, well some of us, are just getting OLD!! My older daughter use to watch those "bionic" shows and had posters in her room of those heroes. And Farrah Fawcett as well. Grab every day cause it sure goes by fast!

Ballerinas and BOM's

I took my little princess ballerina granddaughter to her dance class Saturday. It was kind of a costume fitting, directive on the up coming dress rehearsals and recital, and a run through of the routine for the first time with all of their costume accessories. The routine lasts about under 2 minutes, but the prep, the cost, the gas, etc. - Wow! But it is all worth it and she is so darn cute! The recital is in June and will be at Chrysler Hall in downtown Norfolk. It is quite a production and very professional. Both of my daughters took dance when they were young from the same studio, Golden Slippers. I can't wait for the big night!

I did manage to cut out more of my Civil War Crossings quilt. And finished up a BOM from the Aunt Pitty Pat quilt (bom from What's Your Stitch & Stuff Shop). It is a Civil War reproduction sampler quilt. Kind of a mystery quilt since we don't know what the final thing will look like. It is a lecture class, then you go home and sew the block.

Sunday I picked up a baby quilt I made for Princess from the quilter. This is the first top I have ever had quilted and I am sooo excited. Now for the binding - never done that before either. I am going to work on that tonight. I am skipping WW again and going directly home from work.
