Greetings! We still have wonderful HOT HOT weather to deal with – last week we had 3 days of 100+ and still in the 100 range as far as I am concerned and no rain in sight! We MIGHT have a cool front in mid-October, but not looking good. If we ever get winter I am going to never wear a coat – no matter how cold I get! This has been a brutal summer since August!
On the Cataract front – after Friday we will be down to only 9 more trips to SA for eye issues – 4 November is the last one! Clay has completed both eyes. Other than the dry eye problem that the daily drops cause, he is doing great and will be completely finished with them on the 16th of October!
I will have my right eye done on 1 Oct and the left eye on 8 Oct. We have the greatest surgeon! We have been going to her for 5 years and each time she is bubbly, happy, and always lifts our spirits. She is one of the best in San Antonio. The hospital staff is also great.
I will be so glad to get through my surgeries since I now know the process. I will also have 2 weeks of no lifting or bending over. Hum, maybe I can get back to sewing quicker than I thought. And those lovely 4 times a day (8-12-4-8) eye drop are really fun as they begin to take over one’s life. But it is best to do as instructed because the alternative is not good!
I wanted to let all know that this month I have joined the Celebrating Mary Brown SAL with Karen, Cathy and Julie who have just completed Dearest Boy quilt. I am really looking forward to working with the great quilters who have signed up to participate.
Corliss Searcey has provided such an excellent pattern for this quilt and the cost of the pattern is well worth the money. Corliss is to be commended on her excellent work! I have been working on preparing 16 blocks for this project. I will be behind everyone for a few weeks but I know that I can catch up! Here are the participants and on the 30th of the month take time to visit them!
I really do miss my little quilting world but realize that I do not need to try to work on my projects with so much going on! Less stress is better for Type A idiots!
This September Karen and Cathy selected Celebrating Mary Brown as their next project and invited anyone to join in the fun! The following quilters are participating. We will be showing completed blocks on the 30th of each month! Take the time to visit them to see their completed monthly blocks! If interested let Karen know you are interested in joining the group.
