Happy Sunday to all! We are getting rain. 2 inches so far and the Thunderstorms are not over. I am hoping for 5 inches! We have not had rain all winter so this is a blessing. The negative…Menieres and Vertigo but small price to pay for the blessing of rain.
Upon arriving home from Kinder last week nothing went the way I had planned! That is the price we pay for having fun! We came home with majority of our $$$$ so we decided to upgrade our Apple watches to the Series 4. They are 2mm larger than the Series 2 and really make a difference. Money well spent!
I am participating in the A Merry Christmas To You SAL with Suzan Quilts.
I have finished the 4 embroidery blocks.
I was behind everyone due to our trip but now I am getting caught up and hopefully ahead of the game before Wednesday.
There were 18 Mini Dresden Plates and I finished mine yesterday. Next step is to hand applique on the background block and I will do that in the evening. Today I will be working on 23 “Spool”blocks as I want to get ahead of things so I can get back to finishing the last 4 Star blocks for Star of Chamblie.
I am almost through with another knitted Dish Rag. For some reason I tend to get off track with this pattern each time. I do believe I see how I make that mistake! Maybe I have finally mastered the pattern.
Next on the happenings here are the two great books I finally received from Quiltmania.
I would love to make every quilt in the two books. The are so pretty!
Along with the above books I happened upon a Blogger who was making Nancy Rinks Getting to Know Hue! It was a 2016-2017 BOM. I did not want to participate because at that time one had to purchase fabric kits and I do not do kits. This is a great way to play with colors.
I purchased it from Amazon. This is another beauty that I want to make!
It is great to be home and back into a quiet routine. I have now lost 25 pounds. Working to lose weight and manage Diabetes is tricky and very difficult with my food choices but I keep on trying. I do know that too many potatoes and any fruit can play havoc with Glucose levels!
Have a wonderful week and happy sewing!
