Happy BirthDots 2 Me

Like me, my dolls get better with age and practice. My boy woodknot has experienced a sex change and after a few finishing details, she should be finished by Sunday. I stayed up late late last night trying to finish her so I could bring her to my doll club's show & tell this morning. But by 2 am, I accepted that she would not be finished by morning but I will definitely make it to the 10am doll meeting regardless. Nope. I slept through the snooze button and Mary's 3 phone calls and missed doll club completely. Then I remembered that today is my birthday and I'm old and mornings like this are perfectly legal.

Me and the family packed it up and headed off to Galveston for a beautiful Saturday at Moody Gardens. Because it was my birthday, I forced them stop at Quilts by the Bay. This was my husband's VERY first time physically inside a quilt shop! They were good sports and I bought some birthday Solvy stabilizer, 7 spools of Medeira and Sulky metallic threads for a $1 each, and an assortment of other necessities. Later I took the above close-up of my daughter's rainbow dippin dots because I think they're just the coolest thing.

My published commitment: I will Post a Finished Woodknotress by end of day tomorrow!
