Two weeks and no sewing...

Must be some kind of record for me. I haven't been sick. Not very anyway. Just still having to lay low with the allergies, but they are improving everyday that we move away from the harvesting that has taken place around our house. I love living in the middle of farm land, but the harvest- and the spraying- are not my most favorite parts. Beautiful and kind of exciting to see the fields cleared, though.

Oh, I guess I did play some with those puzzle balls, but that's it. OK by me. I have been entertaining myself just fine. Whodathunk?

Hmm... so what have I been up to? Can't rightly recollect! I have been reading some. After two years on a particular medicine that completely scrambled my brain and made my attention span equal to that of a hyperactive flea, it feels so good to be off it and onto another one which, so far, seems much more friendly. So I have lots of reading to catch up on and I have been doing just that. Oh nothing too deep, just dime novels, but I am giddy to be able to do that! I have been cooking more(the c's- cookies, casseroles and cupcakes!) and having the children help me organize some. Months of stashing things willy nilly does catch up with you, eventually. Time to rotate and reevaluate storage. Coming up with some exciting new plans. Things must be bad when you are excited about cleaning out cupboards, huh?

The same quilt has been setting in the quilting frame for the last two weeks. I think it might be responsible for my downward spiril into allergyworld. At least the catalist. Must have been one dusty top- circa 1930. It is gorgeous and I am two passes from finishing it, just happy to see it there for now. Looking forward to showing it to you. Have a great weekend!

Harvest ends and then it gets damn cold! I do hate the cold... sigh. Laughed at your profile, I may have told you before, but we have similar interests. Movies, music. Did you want Little Big Town get interviewed on GAC? Most the time while I sew I have that channel on. I bought a kindle and so far I really like it. I read books in series usually, and it makes it SO EASY not to have to order the one you can't find. No casseroles--but I did bake cupcakes yesterday! Harvest is here too, and DH is out working on either soybeans or cussing the combine! No frantic calls to wifey for a parts run!

Hugs to you! Seems like it has been forever since we have talked. I think I may have to make time to fix that!!! Love you sis.

Two weeks off must mean a deluge coming soon ... I know neither of us will ever be cured of our addictions.

I think clean cupboards/pantries are VERY exciting. And make cooking so much more inviting.

You need to quilt with surgical masks. Just sayin'.

XOXOXOXOXOXO

I really think those are the same patchwork balls that I made. Check out the Marylandmama site to see if you think they are the same. I have been 11 days now with no sewing and I am having withdrawal sysptoms. Saw the sugeon...three more weeks until I see him again..wear the sling, don't use that arm and no driving...bummer.
