One of those days!

Posted on August 8, 2017 at 2:20pm 13 Comments

This has been one of those days when I think I should have just stayed in bed.  About 10 days ago we decided to buy a 2017 Kia Sportage.  It is candy apple red so pretty easy to see right?!  Well my husband was sitting in a valet line at University Hospital in Columbia MO waiting to have them park it as the garage was full.  I had to be there for a CT scan on my heart this morning.  This man driving a shuttle bus for a local retirement home decides he can't wait for Larry to be able to move…

Latest finish

Posted on August 2, 2017 at 3:19pm 13 Comments

I finished the binding on a 39" square wallhanging this afternoon comprised of Christmas blocks from a swap that Amanda Best hosted with the Piece Around the World group.  I am bound & determined to quilt as many of my tops as I can before the end of the year.…

Another finish

Posted on July 10, 2017 at 10:00am 11 Comments

I can't remember if it will be 2 yrs or 3 in Sept that I took a class from Bonnie Hunter, but I finally finished piecing the top that I started in that workshop.  It is called Bricks in the Barnyard from her Scraps & Shirttails II book.  Her version has a braided border, but I decided to do a piano key border…

My latest finish

Posted on June 2, 2017 at 9:07pm 7 Comments

This is a quilt that is made up of blocks I received several years ago in a swap.  I finally had it quilted a few months ago, but put off doing the binding because it is very heavy.  Once I finally decided to just get with it, I discovered that it wasn't bad at all to do. …

my latest wool project

Posted on May 15, 2017 at 2:41pm 5 Comments

I really enjoy doing wool applique'.  Wish it wasn't so darned expensive, but I just tell myself I'm worth it.  I started making this on April 26th at a meeting of like minded quilters and finished it about 10 days later.  I decided to have it framed at my local Michael's store and they did a fabulous job.  Right now it is leaning up against the wall in my office as I want to take it to show it off to my friends who belong to the same little group when we meet next week.  This is from the…

Janet, I wouldn't be surprised if they dropped the case with Bud. If they did it would be nice to have let me know. In Bud's POA Bud has me as his guardian. But the hold up was or is that his doctor maintains that Bud is capable of making his own decision on whether he wants to go with Barbara. I talked with his doctor the other day when I was visiting Bud and he had to admit Bud's mind is getting worse. This should never have happened. This Barbara had not seen him in the 20 years that he has been with me so all her motive was is to get his money. Bud said to me the other day, "why don't you call your mother and have her watch the kids, so we can go out and have a meal together" My mother has been dead for 11 years and Bud and I never had any kids together so that's and example of how his mind is.

After this last trip to the hospital, I know that the assisted living place is not healthy.  They found me to be both anemic and very malnourished, which I'm trying to turn around while I'm in rehab.  Too bad this is a nursing home...I would love to stay here.

Once a person gets Cellulitis, we are prone to get it more often than most.  As long as you know what to look for, you can catch it in the early stages.

Janet so sorry to hear about your DIL. I will be praying for her.  As we are all aware, cancer is a terrible disease and the treatments have side effects. My sister has lost her taste, and has neuropathy in her hands from it. Plus diarrhea  and a bunch of other ailments.  I will pray that she will recover from it. Many do.

As for Bud and the phone, they aren't allowed to keep it from him. But he don't call that much if he knows I'm home.  He panics when he calls and I'm not here even though I tell him where I'm going.  His dementia he can't remember half of what I tell him.  Sometimes I just shut off the answering machine. But most of the time I forget to do that.

Morning Janet,

Bud is about the same.  I took a boiled dinner over to my sister's last night and had supper with her and her caretaker. I had 25 calls on the answering machine when I got home.  Insanity runs in his mothers family and his actions indicate he inherited it.  He panic's if he can't reach me and will keep re-dialing if I don't answer.  You can hear the anger and fear in his voice when he is leaving his messages.  Even though frustrating for me it must be awful for him to be like that.

Janet tell your friend who is downsizing that you take charity. lol  I have the last load of fabric in the dryer.  I have been washing since 7:30 this morning. It is now 1:30.  My first load the washer sprung a leak.  While the men were fixing it I had to go up to the next unit.  (4 apartments to each unit) to wash.  I hung as much as I could on the line but used the dryer for the fabric.  I did bedding, my regular wash and bedroom mats.  Now I'm thinking I could have saved some for tomorrow. You know, hind sight.

Thanks Janet for the web page for the fold and stitch pattern.  I took a short peek and it looks like a great site.  I just can't resist a cute pattern.

Thank you for the spam heads up, Janet! We have removed the inappropriate posts.

Thanks, Janet!  it felt good to finish that wedding quilt - and the blue china plate quilt.  I feel like I can move on to other projects.  I've been stalled out for so long, hopefully this will motivate me to finish those other projects that are waiting patiently in bins.
