I want to thank all the Veterans (including Clay) for their service to this country. It must be a very difficult to be an active duty military at this time in our country, so my hat is off to them for serving a Nation that has some serious issues facing us for the next 3 1/2 years. Thank you many times over!
Now to HQAL. Well, I do not have much to show this time. I did work on a few leaves for A Bountiful Life, but not enough to show much progress. I tried Minnie Mouse (Cross Stitch) and have decided she will go away! I was working on the “white” thread, but the holes were so small and background white, I lost the thread count and could not see what I was doing. Time for another pattern and maybe different cloth!
I worked on another grid panel for Dresden Heaven and finished 5 of the 9. Slow going here.
The month flew by and very little quilting. This is mostly due to the fact that I had changed the diet (when will I ever learn?) and that impacted me a lot. Especially when I walk. I am a heavy sweater and I lost Potassium again. This time I avoided a ride in the meat wagon, but have now switched to the indoor exercise bike and eat my potatoes! It will have to do until we get to Fall. I never realized the things that low Potassium can do to a person. I was aware that if it falls below 2.2 that is meat wagon time and if it gets above 5.8 it is meat wagon time but when it falls below 3.6 you will become very tired and that is what happened to me! So I opted to be a good 76 year old idiot and stay out of the heat!
Here’s hoping that all are having a wonderful holiday weekend with your families and MASKs OFF! Enjoy!
