Started out sleeping in! Then I went next door and played cribbage and had breakfast with him. He wants me to go over and breakfast with him every day, and I can't do that. So, I need to find a way to tell him I can't do breakfast with him anymore.
After that, I had time to kill before my doctors appointment. I went downstairs, and TRIED to start the fireplace. No such luck. My gas fireplace refused to light. I am going to have Patrick deal with it this time.
I did work downstairs for about an hour and a half, till Patrick came home.
I was able to get the basting on for the basket block. Remember this is a "back basting" applique block. I was trying to figure what colors I could you on this quilt, because Katt told me NO purple or blue. Well, she's have to suck it up, because a couple of the blocks already have purple and blue. I'm making sure to "cut back" on the purples and blues. Doesn't bother me, I'll just put the blues and purples on mine! (actually happy about that!)
While I was basting - Charlie had to inspect it. She wanted my attention and wasn't going to let me get away. I had to move her bed (sitting on it) so she wouldn't be laying on my block. She wanted attention more than she wanted to "let" me work on projects. It was cold down there. Patrick will fix it so I can use it tomorrow.
There is more on the wall, so will take another photo later for you to get the idea. Three different projects are showing here.
My doctors appointment (cardiologist) went well. I don't have to go back for another year. I'm still high on cholesterol but I was a few lbs higher too. We talked about what I need to do to get my cholesterol down, and he told me I should try and get rid of all carbs. I'm not quiet there, because I slipped up with eating bread again. I will work on cutting it out as much as I did with the potatoes. This is hard, but I know I have to do it. We stopped at the store on the way home, and picked up oranges, and other things I can eat. Life changes take a lot, and temptations are out there. If I can behave and pay attention to what I'm doing, I should be even more than just Happy Quilting!
