We made it through the first week in January and now the new year restarts everything. Wish I could say things have improved here, but we are working on it. Have 3 doctor visits scheduled ( chiropractor for my back which is a mess from coughing, lung doctor for coughing with COPD and PC doctor for the rest). Gheeze, getting old with body parts failing is the pits. Oh, and dr appt for my brother's follow- up is scheduled as well. SIL has the part ordered for the clothes washer -guess things are looking better after all.
Regardless, I have some fun "likes" this week:
1.My new daily/weekly/monthly planner.
2. The photo I saw on Facebook of President Obama riding a stallion on the beach representing a real "stable genius". I can't copy the photo for you because it does not belong to me but I thought the photo and caption were priceless.
3. Amaryllis bulbs I received for Christmas.
4. My new Long Sweater for around the house.
I went to Walmart a few weeks ago to purchase sweats for around the house when we had a "cold" spell. But, this sweater caught my eye. It was only $16, fell to the knee, and is very light weight. My tv chair sits next to a window, and sometimes I need just a light cover over my regular clothes.
I have been living in it.
Besides, it's much prettier than sweats.
5. I'VE BEEN SEWING!!! I finally found time to finish a top, sandwich it and now I'm trying to hand quilt for the first time. I call this my "Haywire" quilt. All the center blocks were leftovers from a quilt I made years ago. I just sewed them together, willy, nilly to clean up just one of my UFO's. I added a blue/yellow Joanna Figueroa scrap for the borders and backing. Done in one day. Yup. I even had to scrap together some batting! Now we'll see if I can "handle" hand quilting.
Thanks for visiting my blog and please join us for more "likes" at LeeAnna'sNot Afraid of Color.
Have a great day!
