Got a manicure today!

I went to get a manicure this afternoon. Instead of nail polish she uses a shellac.  It is thicker than regular polish, helps to protect the nail and it lasts a couple of weeks.  I had her cut down my nails because they were getting too long.  I can not believe I can grow my nails. I bit them for 50 years.  I quit  biting them when I retired.  My job must have been more stressful than I am willing to admit.
Aren't they pretty?    

I did not realize my fingers were so swollen.  They are like this pretty much all the time. oh well, such is life!

Here is something a little less boring.....

I did a little sewing.  I finished quilting this quilt top.  I made this using a layer cake.  I used the disappearing 9 patch for the layout.   Here is a picture of the front.  (still need to finish the binding)   

Here is the back...I just did a simple fish scale pattern.

Over the next week or so I am going to be quilting several quilt tops I have had for a while.  I have about 10 more to do.  I am determined to finish all of them before I begin anything new.... LOL...not sure I will be able to do that! but I will try...
I hope to post them once they get done.....I hope you come by again to see them.   

And now we are watching Big Bang Theory....gotta love that Sheldon!  and Leonard and Howard and Raj and Penny.

  1. Nice quilt. I love that fabric and have a little collection of it, but haven't figured out what to do with it yet.
