Last Saturday I slept most of the afternoon and just felt yucky all day Sunday… no fever or sniffles… just yucky… at my besties urging I left a note here that I was under the weather and not posting… thanks to soooo many of you that posted well wishes too 😊
We have great neighbors in this community we live in…no one is too close in proximity but we are close as friends… One neighbor even gifted us 4 house plants from her “stash” … here are 3! And some autumn silk flowers my honey picked out for our bud vase 😀
The back porch is our main place to hang out so last week and this week we have been organizing and added blinds for the afternoon sun that blares in… and 2 matching ceiling fans… we got 1 on marketplace (same place we found the 2 sun shades) and 1 on eBay… both together though cost less that 1 at Home Depot!!! YAY 🙂 We love them and they adjust with a chain or can turn them both on/ off with a switch just inside the door going into the cabin!
We also found a big clock on marketplace with accurate time, temp and humidity on it that matches our cabin exterior colors….
We are pulling out our limited fall decor items….
Look at our cabin!!!! Those ferns and that begonia are looking sooo nice and the hosta by the front entry have really been hardy this year… we have a neighbor who doesn’t believe in leashing his dog so the pet comes and pees on our plants for fun! It is very frustrating and we have told him so… Now lately we haven’t seen his dog… so maybe he has leashed it… time will tell… and autumn will let all these hardy plants slowly wither so I am glad I snapped this shot as we were leaving for errands one day this week 😀
I am down to only 8 blocks… top and bottom borders… and binding on this “Get Well Soon Quilt” … slow and steady finishes the job though… I just do not adore machine quilting like I do hand quilting! lol
I have gotten lots done on the hand quilting front… I finished what I shared 2 weeks ago…
And marked the left side and quilted it about 2/3 of the way up… which is as far as I can reach! lol
Then I marked the cross hatch of the heart with my pounce pad and Allary chalk cartridge pen…. And got it quilted yesterday 😀 YIPPEE!
Next up is marking and quilting 2/3 up on the right side of the hart and I can roll and get the top 1/3 all the way across. Can I get that done for next week’s show??? I hope so!!!
This is my focus today 🙂 Linking this hand quilting fun to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitchers…. HERE <<<< Come see what everyone is doing by hand… there is crochet, knitting and of course some hand quilting and embroidery too!
My knee replacement surgery #1 is scheduled for end of October due to Covid… it had been scheduled for end of September but rates are just too high for the ortho surgeon to do in patient surgeries like mine will be.
I continue to lose weight and am at 50 pounds gone so far !!!! You can see my saggy neck in this photo I tried to capture a happy photo of me and Molly…
You can see my CPAP mask strap indention on my face too LOL… didn’t realize that until now! I made Molly a fresh bandana but she will need one soon for autumn too ❤ I love spring and autumn… esp in these mountains!
I got a new iron this week too… Amazon had it a bit less that Walmart but last I looked Walmart is now less expensive and in stock at the big stores…
So far I like it better than my previous black and decker that all the rubber on it for easy ironing came off! Also it started spitting water … this one is made in Germany so I am hoping it holds up better… it has a ceramic soleplate too!
Now check out my honey’s latest adventure… wood barn quilts! This one is 12″ square and we will be selling them in various colors but I loved this combo of the friendship star! It has a hanging claw on the back or it could stand up like we did for this photo!
Hope you each have a great week now and thanks for visiting… please leave a comment so I know you were here 😀
