Well, I can finally say I'm feeling much better. Went to Chiro and got my back fixed and went to lung doctor and got an antibiotic for the bronchitis. Now just have the primary doctor to see Friday. Hopefully I'll get my haircut today and a pedicure Saturday and I'll be a new woman. Whew.
As you can imagine I have a few likes for our weekly group. here they are:
1. My lung doctor. She is a funny intelligent woman and so down to earth. She's been my lung doctor about 6 months after I was diagnosed with COPD about 5 years ago. At that time I was on oxygen at home during the night. Her tests and the right prescriptions have enabled me to stop the oxygen at least 3 years ago and keep my COPD at bay. What helps so much is her approach to my health. For instance when she sent the antibiotic prescription to my pharmacy online while I was sitting there in her office, she handed me a written prescription for a drug in case I got a yeast infection from the meds. Only a female doctor would do that in advance. Just sayin.
2. A new quilt for my second great granddaughter. We had an addition to our family Jan 8th. She is so sweet. Here's the quilt I sent to her family:
I made this small quilt ( about 50 inches square) when I found out my granddaughter was having a girl and then just waited till she was born to add a label with her new name-Kynslee. This quilt was made from a scrap bag I purchased at my LQS! I think it's from a line at Me and My Sister. Love the color combo.
3. My new Valentine quilt. I didn't realize I didn't have one for the living room. I was at Walmart to purchase an embroidery hoop and saw their FQ bundles for $5.75 for 5! I don't normally purchase fabric there. I washed the fat quarters, pressed them and got started cutting. I cut the fat quarters into charm squares and they made 60! I added some white 1.5 inch sashing I had in my stash.
I just bordered each charm making 8 to a row with 7 rows and the rest of the top to make a top 39 x 46. I did this in 2 days!
I didn't have a backing I liked in my stash so went to Joanns big sale and got a Valentine backing for $14. Score. So, here we go again with the back almost prettier than the top. Oh well. I like the choices.
Yesterday, I tried sandwiching on my smaller table (about 2' x 4') next to my bed. Usually, I put 2 tables together but then I can't get in the closet so I left one of them put away and did this:
It was a little difficult but not impossible plus I didn't have to wreck my back getting out the other table and of course put it away when done!
Hopefully, I will quilt this cutie tomorrow. 😉
Thanks for coming along on this journey today and please join us at LeeAnna's "likes" post Not Afraid of Color for more fun.
Have a blessed day.
