To Do Tuesday (Wednesday) – 2 June 2021

Well, Happy Tuesday (Wednesday for me) everyone! A new month! Just think, in 8 months it will 2 January 2022! Maybe the next 7 months will be full of rain and a cool Fall for 2021! I have changed my exercise program to the indoor exercise bike – just too humid and warm for this 76 year old! I do miss the walk, but not the hot and humid weather of which we have more earlier this year with the rain! Absolutely no complaints on the rain. We have had close to 11.5 inches in the last month, so we are very pleased with having some beautiful green grass again!

It has been a year today that Clay had his Aorta Valve replaced. It is a great day in the neighborhood here and much to be thankful for! Although, Clay and I wish our country was not in such a downward spiral!

I have not felt well in May (my fault for trying new foods and problems with Polyethylene Glycol and low Potassium). So I am back on track and beginning to feel better by not losing potassium sweating my posterior off each morning! My glucose is also much lower so still not going to have to take medication for Pre-Diabetics. June is looking good for us.

New and Old Goals for 31 May through 7 June 2021:

  • Be happy for all that we have and forget about the bad!
  • Sew the binding for Autumn Jubilee
  • Load and quilt another quilt (May be my Red, White and Blue Log Cabin)
  • Work on Dresden Plates (Applique)
  • Work on A Bountiful Life (Applique)
  • Stay on my special diet!

I did get Autumn Jubilee quilt quilted but mistakes were made in the cutting of the backing and I had to load the quilt different and will never do that again! You can see the mess on the lower left corner! Grrr! It still is a pretty quilt and no one will know the difference when keeping warm under it!

Autumn Jubilee – Mistakes and all!

I have finished a few more of the Dresden Plates, but not going fast enough so am leaning toward spending the next couple of days doing only had work. If I really work hard at it I could get this project done a lot quicker! I am going to start cutting out the circles for this group and the first group that are completed and sew them on. Then it won’t be so overwhelming doing 105 at one time.

I was planning on getting this post out yesterday as I only had an appointment in the morning in Seguin to drop off my hearing aids for cleaning. Clay hurt his knee on Friday and I was able to get him in with the knee doctor in the afternoon in San Antonio. Dr Heckman gave him a steroid shot in the knee and on the 16th of June Radiology will take care of the Baker’s Cyst.

It was a good day as we checked off 2 appointments and 2 errands that required our attention and a no cooking supper topped it off! Clay had sausage from Bill Miller with Potato Salad and I fixed tuna and had some of his Potato Salad! But at 9PM we were headed for the bed! I mentioned to Clay that we could have gone to the coast for the day with the mileage I drove! LOL

I am not going to add anything new to my weekly goal as I want to get something finished instead of staying overwhelmed with the things that I want to do and what I call “need” to finish! We shall see – our calendar is empty until the 14th of June. I will enjoy the free time.

Please keep Susan in your prayers while she goes through her changes now in her journey of life. Thank you!

Have a wonderful week and enjoy stitching and life!

Hugs, Nanette

  1. I love your autumn quilt–and yes, no one will notice. When mistakes happen, I just say live and learn and go on. Also like your Dresden! When I first got into quilting (90’s), I never thought I’d make a Dresden but they started growing on me recently and once I made one (a couple years ago), well, now I LOVE them so that is on my to-do list yet this year!

    1. This one was the 2nd one I had made – but the first was like the original plates – not pointed one. I like Susan’s patterns. My eyes seem to travel to my boo boo’s! LOL. Hugs


    1. Thank you Frederique! Oh if I could just have about 10 days without interruptions I could get it done sooner. I think that when I finish the 2020 projects that could not be done, I will go back to starting on one project and completing it! No more UFOs. (wanna bet on that one? – LOL). Hugs


  2. Autumn Jubilee turned out nicely. Done is better than perfect. I had to look closely to see the issues. We’ve lucked out in northern OK, it’s been a very cool and wet spring so far. Though I think that is changing. Happy stitching time.

  3. Read all your recent posts with my coffee this morning. Hot and muggy here too and mosquitoes are bad this year.
    What a perfect way to mark your special anniversary with those beautiful rings. I enjoyed reading your story. I’m glad you have a good security system for peace of mind. You two have faced down serious health challenges together and come through with flying colours. I love how you are focusing on the good and positive in your lives together. Very much like me in my marriage as well. Take care of yourself now and here loving your stitching which goes without saying almost! Your Dresdens are making me want to make them too. Eeek!
