Good afternoon! To-Do Tuesday has come and gone but I am going to do this one anyway! Today I am FREE! I have quit my Insurance Billing Position with BAMC (turned over to Senator Cruz), Medicare (last appeal) and the Secondary Insurance (first and last appeal)! Now I will sit back and see what they all do with the 2 Final Appeals and the request for assistance from the Senator on all the problems that I have experienced. Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) will get whatever comes out of my hard work trying to get our problems resolved correctly (doubtful). After BCBS it will be over with 100%, as I no longer in the business! If we take a financial hit – so be it. I have everything in order and filed now – just waiting to send BCBS their package.
The thick folder in front is the last package that will go to BCBS. I am DONE!
I will say that I have hit the jackpot on my house cleaner! What a jewel. Hope it stays this way for a long time. She did an excellent job – the best that I have ever hired.
My goals for next Tuesday are to finish OMIGOSH and work on Indian summer (hand quilting project). I have not had time for a month to even think about where I was in mid-February, much less look at the next list of things to do with quilting. But today has been a fantastic day! I have been working on OMIGOSH and really getting things done. I had cut out the 16 remaining blocks I believe in late January or early February. I did finish 8 of the 16 and now I am making the 4 patches, 9 patches, and HSTs for the next 8. To challenge myself and break up the monotony I am sewing all 4 and 9 patches for the blocks, then do the Square in a Square blocks and THEN put all 8 blocks together at the same time. GOAL: To have them completed by Tuesday!
This is the status for the end of today:
And I am all set to sew the 9 patches for this group tomorrow:
I have made some small progress on Indian summer.
I have been studying the orange, blues, and beige as to how to quilt them. I tried doing some cross hatching like the middle border, but it just did not go well. So I will continue on with following the curve lines 1/4″ apart and maybe I can make headway quicker. Not sure on the borders, I will wait until I get there!
I signed up for Kaye England Medallion Master and had planned to start in February! That did not happen but I have downloaded the pattern and will have access to Kaye for a Year!
Piecing the Past Quilts has a new BOM coming called Redwork Baskets. Baskets were on my to do list somewhere in space. This setting really caught my attention.
Well, it is time to shut down the Studio and enjoy my relaxing evening that is ahead. I will say that I detest DST, but you know – we can shut the blinds and pretend we are still on Standard Time. I am hoping Texas is successful in removing it from our Constitution and also approving Casino’s in Texas.
Today I did a great walk and just have to brag! I am trying to lose the 8 pounds from this last year so I have to increase the speed in which I walk. Today I really hit a great goal. Hope I can repeat it tomorrow. I was walking a 20 minute mile, this one was done has exceeded my 20 minute mile!
Hoping every is having a great week, I am just getting a slow start. I had a great Face Time with Kathy today – so much fun to be able to sit and sew and chat for an hour or so!
