Okay. Enough of being ill. I’ve thrown the ball for Ozzie, taken him for a walk, I’ve had chicken soup for brunch, and I’m headed back upstairs to quilt. I originally didn’t have anything scheduled until late in this week, so I’d best get my act together and finish off my backlog so I can be caught up when the next quilts arrive. I’m expecting three at least, along with the possibility of some miniatures for a friend. I discovered that part of the reason I was so tired yesterday is that I had forgotten to take my medications. I have a metabolic disorder that is helped by taking phentermine each day, and it’s amazing how quickly I seem to run out of gas without it. I’m trying to get myself some more natural remedies (vitamins, herbs, etc.) so I don’t have to rely on taking these obnoxious substances much longer. It feels good to be headed back to the quilting machine. I managed this little piece of sewing over the last few days, just to get my fingers limbered up again. I think I’m good to go.
Just a simple folded hot pad that was more pressing than sewing really, that still requires a binding and, next time, a more contrasting fabric for the middle. Oh – I forgot to say this is a pattern from PlumEasy patterns and it was plum easy. It does, however require quite chunk of fabric, but I’ve already devised a method for remedying that. I’ll test it out later when I’ve had some quilting time under my belt.
