Saturday and Sunday I spent a little time in the studio.
Saturday I finished my block 4 of the Carol Doak Mystery BOM. If I say I am really excited about how these fabrics are looking with these blocks, will it sound like boasting? I think this is going to be a really classy quilt. However, Carol is one month ahead of herself (this is September’s block) so I may have to find something else to work on next month.
I have also started work on one of my Christmas quilts. What you can see here is the center with three rows sewn together. I would have gotten them done but DH came in and invited me out to dinner so there goes my sewing time for today. However, an invitation to the Mellow Mushroom is not to be turned down! Tomorrow I hope to finish the rows and put a red stop border on before turning to other projects.
And I have to add a picture of my new iPhone cover. I found this in Books-a-Million this week and was so excited I didn’t even get upset when the clerk and customer ahead of me talked for 10 minutes. What you can’t see is that this is 3-D. Isn’t this just me?
Now, to the change………
This has been a very busy and eventful week. I did get some sewing done on Monday but Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were all devoted to Weight Watchers. And all through the week I began to feel tired and wiped out. I do have a heart condition, rapid heart beat, and it got triggered Tuesday and I couldn’t get it under control until late Wednesday with some slight flair-ups on Thursday and Friday. And I found that during this time my ability to deal with job or home irritations was limited. So as of Friday I am no longer working for Weight Watchers.
I can’t tell you how sad I am about this change but I also know that this is really the best thing for me. I am a retired person but have been working for WW, more and more, for the past 3 years, and really need to get back to a more peaceful way of life. And both my puppies and the studio are very glad that I will be home more.
So today part of my time will be spent working on setting up a new, not too busy, daily schedule: wish me luck.
