I finally got to see my son as a waiter yesterday. Takumi is working part time at a Shabu Shabu restaurant and I was curious to see his work place and watch him in action. Embarrassed him completely by taking pictures of him as he served us. Mothers do these things.
And here we have a picture of Takumi and his girlfriend. I think she was afraid to meet me but Takumi convinced her to take the risk. Unfortunately I accidently sneaked up on her and frightened her out of her wits. Boy, did she let out a scream. Yep. Takumi has a scary mom.
Marcy and Kiana and I finished both the baby quilts we were working on and hopefully those will get delivered this weekend. I hand-stitched all around and did some leaves on one quilt but I bought a machine quilting foot and machine quilted hearts on the other quilt. One baby has already been born and named so I made some Wonky letters to make the quilt more personalized.
The day that I bought the quilting foot, Marcy and Kiana and Leiya and I found a fabric warehouse with stacks and stacks and STACKS of fabric. It was so amazing that I really couldn't see the forest through the trees! The prices were unbelievable (like $1.69 a yard for some shelves) but you couldn't get down to even see the fabric. Still, I managed to buy some nice stuff and I will take it home to work on a quilt for one of Leiya's friends. Marcy and Kiana bought fabric too and "we" will start making a couple table runners this week.
We managed to take Grandma to get Smoothies the other day, the first time she'd been out in ages. Marcy looked at this picture and said
"Well we know what Tani's going to look like in 30 years!"
Mother looked at the picture and said,
"Yuck. What happened to my hair?"
So Leiya cut Grandma's hair.
