Actually I think the whole day today was kinda 'dorky'--
ever have one of them????
As it was--
It was my Anne's day to come--
she did come--but did not bring any quilting--
she was feeling a little under the weather--
so we just chatted a while and I did get one more block quilted on the Christmas quilt!!!
After she left--
I did a couple things and then played with Miss Gracie--
I wanted to her to model her "bow"--
Oh well--she is too fast for me--
she really did look cute with it on her head!!!!!
I was invited to go to a Red Hat luncheon today --
and it was at the Hotel in our back yard there--
Well--I really do not have any dress-up clothes any more--
and that was one of the reason's why I resigned as "Queen Mother" a couple years ago--
I always felt I looked like a "dork" (as Shell would say from the Raspberry Rabbit blog site)--I could not afford the pretty clothes that everyone else in the club wore--and you can not find pretty clothes in red and purple in just cotton, and that is mainly all I can wear--soooooo!!!
But I took out one of my more dressy demin jumpers today and took off--
I went in the 'back' door--one closest to our parking lot--and I seen the room where the luncheon was being held--and there was all these ladies dressed up in red and purple and with big red hats on--I did not even have a hat--!!!!
Now listen to this---
I hid behind a small wall and I looked down that hallway and there was the line--
more pretty red hats and outfits--
I stood there for a minute or two and then I ----smelled it----
lots and lots of 'perfume' and I just knew that there was no way that I could stay---
so 'chicken' that I am---dorky me slipped back out the back door and came home.
The rest of the day was kinda quite--Miss Gracie and I took a nap--
then we sat and watched some birds out the window from the apartment--
and I did alittle more embroidery on a ufo--bom--from 2010!!!!
Have you ever felt like you were a "dork" in a room full of people--
