PAMPERING AND I MUST BE ILL ! !

Today I went to take advantage of a gift certificate and got a much needed pedicure. Then I decided to splurge and get a manicure too. I'd post a picture but pedicure or not-- my bunions do not make an attractive photograph. Nor do my hands...with the liver spots/age spots, popping veins...ugh!!! Both were so relaxing, my hands and feet do look much better and I do feel pampered!!!

I also had two gift certificates for my favorite hang out Nancy's Calico Patch. Nancy's is right there in the same shopping center a few doors down. Now, I normally can't pass by there without being pulled inside by the magnetic forces and never leave without a purchase. Well, today I go in with two nice gift card/certificates in tow and and I left without a single purchase! Not a spool of thread, not a yard of fabric, not fat-quarter, not even a scrap square or fat-eighth. Not a pattern. Not a book. Not a magazine. Not a blessed thing!!!!Now I tell you girlfriend...that is a SURE sign I am ILL!!!

I did bid on a couple Scrap Therapy Patterns on EBay which arrived today! Be a while before I get to them making them... They are some which I wanted to take the class when Nancy's offered it but I had conflicts with the times they were held and couldn't attend. They'll probably be offered again in late summer or early fall and I'll take them then if I haven't found time to make them yet. Heck I'll probably take them regardless as it is MY THERAPY!!! I am also thinking about taking "Blooming Steps" again...I finished the middle section of the main part of the quilt but I am thinking I'll enlarge it....have not finished to inner nor outer borders...I'm thinking another class on it would get me the time in class to finish those sections and enlarge it to fit my bed. We'll see.

So glad you were able to pamper yourself. As to not buying anything, I'm afraid I would never have been able to pass a quilting store w/o purchasing something. Now that is will power.

Hi!! :) I just found your blog! WOW, I didn't know you had one and I have enjoyed looking around! NEAT background and fun story about the spray ice cream!!! Saw your comment about the tote giveaway. Hope you win, you could use it all summer taking the girls to Nancy's! :)

I think you had to be sick too...to pass a quilting store and not to buy anything. My hubby will love that. LOL. So glad you got a good "pampering"!

Well I am glad that you were pampered! We don't need something from the quilt shop unless it really speaks to me! But beware, new things are coming ;-)

Good for you on the manicure and pedicure. I have been wanting to do that for ages.

I know the pampering felt good though, you needed it!
