GREETINGS! I am so happy, our lives are becoming so boring and we love it. No drama for the last 5 days – almost to my goal of having 7 days of no DRAMA and NO PROBLEMS. Our 7 years of hard and stressful years must be coming to an end and life is settling back to normal for Clay and I. We are healthy and are enjoying getting back to enjoying our home and freedom from stress. A new phase of our life! We are truly blessed. I have the greatest housekeeper who is great and always shows up on time and never cancels. I really appreciate her dedication to her work.
I am keeping my goals daily. Walk once to the gate, so when the weather cools down I can be ready to do my 30 minute walk again. Then each morning I do my 30 minutes on the bike, 10 minutes with my Sun Lamp, and finally 15 minutes in the sun for more Vitamin D. Baby bananas are back in the diet for potassium, so all in all, I am happy to be able to do my “must do list” for health and then work on my UFOs.
The following UFOs are remaining from 2020 and beyond.
- Dresden Plates – Continue stitching plates to background grid
- Stonefields – Sections 7-10 – will limit blocks to 100.
- A Bountiful Life – 7 blocks to finish (16 total) plus a border
The following quilting projects are in work.
- A Quilter’s Dream – Trace quilting patterns and load in Z44
- Continue quilting Raggedy Ann and Andy (Row 1 completed) I would like to finish this one by next week for PHD 2021 – we shall see.
Completions for the week of 16-22 August 2021
I have completed 72 of the 105 Dresden Plates so I have only 33 to sew to the background grids. Feeling good about this.
On Sunday I finished sewing 10 labels to the quilts I had quilted and 2 table runners. This felt good. They now reside on the quilt rack in the Library and Den.
I have slowly plodded along in getting caught up, but believe me when I say that I am ready to make more quilt tops, Cross Stitch, Lap Hoop work, Knitting, etc. The only project that I am not sure of how many more hours to put into is A Bountiful Life. I vacillate back and forth as whether to just do a border with 9 blocks or continue on with 16 blocks. I am afraid that I am just tired of that quilt and just want it done – no matter what it looks like. (But of course, that is today’s feelings – things change so maybe I will feel better when I finish Dresden Heaven). I just miss creating something new.
Have a wonderful week of stitching, or maybe just enjoy each and every day!
