April is gone and here we are in May 2022 and before we know it 2023 will be here.
I have now finished the last UFO that I had started in 2020. I purposely left this quilt last because I wanted to make sure I could concentrate 100% on the quilt without interruptions, and to work on it at a slow pace to prevent issues. My hat is off to the Designer as the pattern directions and visuals were perfect! it took a lot of time in fabric selection, cutting 3 1/2” strips and squares for the borders.
The quilt measures 86” x 96”and no I will not quilt it. I am hoping my quilter will be able to add it to the other 9 that are waiting in the que for her.
The quilt is too large to hang it for the picture. This picture shows how large it is.
This picture is reduced by my iPhone and shows the entire quilt!
For me scrappy is difficult, but I am very pleased with the effect that the middle row shows with my color placements in the border. If I were still entering Quilt Shows I know this one could be a winner!
I am not sure what I will start on next. I have so many quilts that I really would like to make, I just need to sit down and review all the patterns that I really might want to start on.
On the home front weather is hot and Humid so looking like it will be much of the same all summer. Clay has finished all the zero land scapping, which was very hard work. I miss working with Clay on our home projects, but not ready to go have back surgery #5! At 78 and with that new heart valve in 2020, he has really been working a lot and doing it the right way – early in the morning and stopping by noon. We decided to zero scape because of the extreme drought that we have here in South Texas.
I will be going to an Audiologist Thursday for ordering the 3rd pair of hearing aids Maybe this will be a charm! Last week I developed an eye issue. Clogged oil glands and was lucky to just send them pictures and they gave me an antibiotic to use for 2 weeks. It is getting better! Walking update! It is just so hot and humid with no breeze that I am giving in and will only do 20 minutes or until I get my mile in. This morning I did it in 21 minutes. I now wear shorts and halter top along with my blue wet towel to keep cool. Then I run and sit in front of our big fan on the Studio porch until I cool off. I would rather reduce the time and distance and still be able to do the walk as the 1.5 mile walk in 30 minutes in this horrible summer heat is just not an option at 77! I must be smart like Clay and remember I am not 50! DARN!
I have a dental appointment in June – called to get an estimate on the dental work – How about $8,000 to $9,000 for something that used to cost $4,500 to $5,000. I want to personally thank the Democrats and especially the Idiot in the WH! Inflation is so much fun and I really love it when I go fill up the vehicle’s with fuel! I am praying for the SCOTUS and that the person who leaked the document is caught and dis-barred from ever being an Attorney. The only place where we all felt that would never experience leaks on Opinions. I feel that R vs W should be overturned and turn it over to the States! OK – off my political box!!!!
Have a wonderful rest of the week and enjoy stitching!
