On Vacation

Morning all! I am AWOL from quilting until the end of the month! We are in Sierra Vista Arizona enjoying a change of scenery.

Of course I missed our record breaking cold at home but there will be more coming this winter.

Today we will be heading to Tombstone, our favorite spot to people watch and play Touristo!

We are staying at the Garden Place across the entrance from Ft Huachua. Great hotel.

Today is picture taking day so I will post them later. I am ‘slightly beginning’ to think about working on my Mountmellick flowers in the evenings as things are settling in after the first couple of days.

Have a great day. Happy Stitching.

Brinton Hall on a Slow Stitching Sunday

I have been trying to finish the Center Medallion for Brinton Hall UFO.  I am down to only one corner remaining and will complete this today.  The next step is to select the next border.  I will more than likely change the pattern at this point.  My goal is to have that completed and the Medallion ready to stitch down before I began preparing for our trek to Arizona.  I am so ready to have a change of pace!

I will again admit that sitting all day long in my Studio doing had work is just not for me!  I will be working on those lovely small flowers for Mountmellick border while we are in Arizona.   Hopefully I will be able to finish them and upon return home, that border will be ready for completion and the remainder of both quilts will be piecing, along with some hand work, but not the constant hand work which I have been struggling to stay focused on.  It would be great if I could finish both quilt tops by the end of the year!

The weather will be humid for 3 days the cold front comes in just in time for the beginning of our trip!   YEA!

I am still struggling with the idea that I “am diabetic”.  My weight loss is maintained and beginning to go down again I almost saw another pound going away but those 2 ounces kept it at 10 (oh well).  I will meet my weight goal of 10-15 more pounds in the next couple of months, but my food list is down to eggs and chicken!  In case anyone out there eats cough drops and struggling with weight gain, here is a TIP!  Each cough drop contains 5 grams of SUGAR!  YUP – that was something that I did not know and when I had the flu in December last year I developed a habit of eating those puppies during the day!  My glucose levels have dropped like a rock since I quit those and potatoes!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
