I’ve had a busy week. Josh and I met with the counselor at the high school to plan for his senior year and look ahead at college. I can’t believe how quickly my children are growing up. Before I know it I’ll have two in college. Where does the time go? DD also had her parent teacher conference. She is doing well and enjoying school. Here is a picture she made in art.

I also had my book group this week. We discussed The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. A very fun book with a lot of play on words. And in my spare time I’ve been working on my scrappy dutchmen’s puzzle. I’m thinking one more solid border and this one is ready to quilt.

Then I had three doctor appointments ugh. One of them the dreaded yearly women’s visit. So I figured I deserved some pampering. I went and got a haircut at a fancy salon. Where they massaged my scalp and treated me very nice. It is quite short now. But I love how easy it is to do.

    Don't the kids grow up way too fast? My oldest will be driving in just a few short weeks… yikes! And then onto the college planning. Love the Dutchman's puzzle and your new do is terrific! Short is definitely easy.

    My sister and I were just talking about that book and she was saying that it was one of her favorites as a kid. I barely remember it and hope to read it again soon. I love your Dutchman's puzzle quilt. Great colors. I have always loved the look of that block. Your hair looks cute!

    I remember reading that book with the kids when they were growing up — we all loved it! And I like your hair!

  • Shari says:

    Love the new 'do' – short hair really is better unless it's like silk… I used to dream of that kind of hair when I was a kid – but mine is frizzy with just enough curl to be annoying – I can usually tame it with a blow-dryer…

    Your Dutchman's puzzle looks great – have you thought about a pieced border instead of a solid? Had to ask as my workshop teacher said we just whack on a solid border because we've had enough and just want to finish… although I generally like the framing effect of a solid border… so glad these are our quilts and we get to do what we want! LOL

    Senior year – wow. Definitely growing fast and hopefully in a good direction… Love Anna's picture – would make a great journal cover – does she show any interest in sewing?

    Haven't heard of the book – sounds interesting. Will have to check at the library to see if they have it… might be good for the summer break…

    You take care and I hope those doctors all had good news!

    Hugs – Shari

    I think that book was one that the kids in my daughter' class could choose for their class read-aloud last week.

    Doesn't it feel great to get your hair done? You definitely deserve it after all those dr appts!

    It's always so fun to be in those final border stages on a quilt! Yay!

    Yes, the kiddos grow up so quickly. Where do the years go?

    I love the scrappy quilt. You have been so busy lately. Do you feel like you are chasing yourself around?

    Love your new 'do'! You look too young to have kids in college! Kids do grow up quickly. It never ceases to amaze me how fast time flies. Your Dutchman's puzzle is fantastic. I really love that pattern.

    The new 'do is cute. Isn't it fun to shake things up a bit? I recently cut off over 10" of my hair and found myself using too much shampoo at first. Now I love my shorter hair.

  • Terri says:

    Love your quilt and love your 'do – I just went short again myself and it is very liberating, isn't it?
