Greetings from South Texas! It appears that I have lost my desire to work on quilts since Clay’s accident on New Years Eve. I do understand that this is only a bump in the road and things will return to normal later in the year! My focus has been 100% on Clay and getting him back to where he will feel better and his hand will be working much better! He has always supported me when I went through surgeries and health issues, so I do not mind taking a break from quilting in fact, I am learning how to day each day as it comes – Good or Bad! I began helping him with his therapy yesterday – we work on his hand every 2 hours and our goal is to do it 4 to 5 times a day. Since yesterday, his wrist seems to be doing a little better as far as movement. YEA! A Blessing.
Blessing 2 – I found a great person to take over the yard work! He and his wife came by last week to give me an estimate and he ended up taking the time to mow the grass in the yard (not the outside acreage since the ‘weeds’ were not high enough! I was overcome with relief! I also found a great company to come and exterminate at a later date.
Blessing 3 – I was able to obtain enough chicken to cover me for the entire month and all other essentials and food that we needed. It took me 3 weeks to get all the groceries that I usually buy at one time at the first of each month. I ordered from Walmart, who delivers to the house, and went to the local store and pick it up at Curbside. I had to wait 9 days to get the first order – unbelievable!
Blessing 4 – 7 inches of RAIN in the last week!!! YEA
But enough of this boring stuff! Now having said all I have to say about life, here is what I have accomplished in a month – A MONTH! Would you call this a record for me? LOL
These are 2 blocks for OMIGOSH! I am using reproduction fabrics from Barbara Brackman’s Lady In Red an Richmond Reds. To make a ‘block’ it takes 2 each 5 inch (unfinished) 9 patches and 2 shoofly blocks.
Monday morning I woke up with a creative idea as what to do with old bath towels that we usually lay at the doorway to clean our shoes whenever we get rain!
This is what I started with (old towel)
I had a total of 4 towels to retrofit to inside door mats that do not slip or slide!
Well, this is all I have for the month so far! I am now relaxing and just enjoying life with no issues at this time. With all the madness in the world, we are at peace.
