A Happy Sunday and pre Halloween to all! I was born two minutes to midnight on Halloween so everyone celebrates my birthday! When I was younger and the weather pattern was different, I always knew what my birthday present would be – a new winter coat! In South Texas our weather pattern used to provide a wonderful cool front on my Birthday and I loved the break in the warm South Texas summers. SO this year I am getting a great present from Mother Nature – a Cold Front – YEA! Looking forward to it!
I have been working on the corners for Brinton Hall. When I last worked on it (think in 2016) this is where I left the center medallion. There are 4 hexagon sections that I am currently working on to complete the Medallion. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I have already completed the top and bottom middle portions. After looking at it I see that on the Upper Top Left area are missing a couple of hexagons. These will be added later.
This is the lower right section. I have 2 rows sewn together and will finish the other 3 this afternoon.
This is the Upper Left Section that I will also be working on this afternoon.
How did we ever do without our cameras in our phone? I took pictures when I started this quilt, and when I prepared all the Hexagons I put it on the design board and took pictures of each section and labeled each row and Section in separate baggies. I was so glad that I took the time to be organized on this part of the quilt because it has made it so much easier to come back to the project without a lot of issues to work out. Of course the quilter made a boo boo on the first Section and had to tear those tiny tiny stitches out and redo. But it is still going to be a fun quilt to make!
I have been working on Block 8 of A Bountiful LIfe. It is coming along, but not fast enough for me! I need to really start scheduling my time better.
I finished Block 7 last week.
I have finished preparing all the hexagon flowers for Mountmellick and have 5 blue flowers completed, but they are so small (1/2” hexagons) I had to take a break from them!
I am doing very well on my food list! By eliminating all chocolate and potato chips and any other carbs a lot of the diabetic symptoms have gone away – profuse sweating and restless sleep are no more! Although I have found that I still have to have a potato each morning, or I have issues with potassium! I was losing energy and brain power this week and finally figured it out! I am much better now and will leave the potato in my diet eating it at breakfast only! My walking is back on track and the walk is so much more enjoyable with the cooler weather! I have lost almost 10 pounds since 4 October. I think the last 10 will take another month to lose. I wanted to be at a certain weight by Halloween, but may miss it by 2 or 3 pounds! We will see!
Have a wonderful week and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
