it was bound to happen eventually.....

2 days ago I found my first gray hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I've been on the lookout for a few years now, and every time I thought I'd found one I realized it was just a really blond piece.  So I wasn't worried at first when I was washing my hands in the bathroom downstairs at work - but I still grabbed the piece and ran up the stairs holding it to have Vikkie (the other receptionist) inspect it in actual day light by the window.  She confirmed that it was indeed a silver hair, and graciously ripped it out for me when I asked.  I have to admit that as far as grays go it was a pretty silvery white. 

So, the fun news of this post is:  Last night was our Christmas party (a little late since the docs were out of town most of December) and I got to wear the dress that I wanted to wear last year but was a little too tubby to do!  I ended up wearing a cardigan still because it was freezing last night!  The party was fun, food delicious and the atmosphere good.  All in all, good stuff :)

No pics, but I am almost done piecing together the flower squares for the quilt top for the vintage sheet bee.  I thought last weekend I could have been done but thought I wanted to add another row of fleurs so still stitching.  I haven't quite decided if I am going to make some tiny flowers like this one??  I thought I might do a bunch and then make it into a border - but I have a little confession, I'm kind of over making flowers.  So, might not do that.  Any suggestions?  I thought I might do a solid color border then one of my favorite sheets bordering the solid.
