Last weeks list of To-Do's didn't go so well...
1. Tie the Scrappy Quilt✔
2. Start the binding of Scrappy Quilt
3. Put the ABC quilt together and in the hoop
I didn't accomplish much last week...I was feeling pretty poorly. We have been having on again off again rain this past week which resulted in a Flood Watch for us. So everything is wet, wet, and wetter. The weather affects my health....I have COPD...
(Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, cough, mucus (sputum) production and wheezing.)
So when the humidity is up I have trouble breathing. The rainy weather also affects my Degenerative Joint Disease, which causes me to hurt when I move.
Degenerative Joint Disease, which is also referred to as osteoarthritis (OA), is a common “wear and tear” disease that occurs when the cartilage that serves as a cushion in the joints deteriorates. This condition can affect any joint but is most common in knees, hands, hips, and spine. So not a good week for moving. And on top of all this....I was putting dishes away and dropped a Cast Iron Skillet on my foot...there was lots of cursing going on, it HURT!!! Now I have a colorful looking foot.
Sorry for all the rambling about my week. I did get the Scrappy Quilt tied.
I also dug out the ABC Quilt....it is next in the hoop, but have to sandwich it.
To-Do for week of May 19th to May 26th.
1. Cut binding for Scrappy Quilt
2. Sandwich the ABC Quilt
3. Finish my book...Green Lake
4. Learn a new embroidery stitch
5. Work on Frog hanging (which may turn into a quilt)
The stitch this week for TAST is Oyster stitch. You can read all about it over at Sharon's place...Pintangle.
Here is my Oyster Stitch...
It's the red line going down a seam on a Crazy Quilt block.
As for reading....I did get a little further on the book I'm reading...Green Lake by S. K. Epperson.
The urge to hit him was overpowering, but Eris settled for slamming Lyman against the car again.
"Don't even think about selling that line...You're the one holding all the cash, not her."
Eris kicked the driver's door, making a huge dent in the side. "Sue me."
