Yesterday was a busy day here at Chez Nana … but then the entire week is going to be pretty busy.
I walked with my neighbors Vickie and Lois. It was cool … I had to grab a sweatshirt. After our walk, I headed to the sewing room where I finished piecing together the 2 rows of the chevron quilt and pieced together 2 more rows … now I have 9 rows almost completed. Since the quilt will have 17 rows, I’m more than halfway done … with the pieced blocks … I have a couple of borders to add as well.
I had an eye appointment yesterday afternoon. It was a case of good news and bad news. The good news is that my nearsightedness and my astigmatism is improving (who even knew that was possible??) … the bad news is that the optic nerve in my left eye is thinner than it should be. Because I’m at risk for glaucoma (my dad has it), my optometrist wanted to do a scan of my optic nerves. The nerve isn’t so thin that she is ready to make the diagnosis of glaucoma, but it’s certainly concerning enough to her to want to follow up on it regularly rather than waiting a few more years to do a scan.
My day ended with a quilt guild meeting. I made it official and paid my dues and am now a member. I have to say that I’m glad I did as I was certainly made to feel so welcomed.
Today will be another busy day … there’s a road trip to Homestead Hearth on the agenda. I’m hoping to find the fabric for T#1’s new quilt there. Here’s the inspiration for his quilt:I wish I could give credit for it, but I found it one afternoon many months ago when I was Googling log cabin quilts and failed to note the website/blog where I found this. I showed T#1 several of the quilts that I found, and he chose this one. I’m planning on using dark blues and neutrals with a red chimneystone. I hope to be able to start piecing his quilt at the retreat next month.
Tonight the Ts have their first summer swim team meet … IF the rain doesn’t interfere. Since the forecast is for thunderstorms, I won’t be surprised if the meet is postponed.
Not sure what is up with my ISP’s mail server. I’m getting duplicates … LOTS of duplicates … of emails in the last 16 hours. This morning when I checked my mail, I had 46 unread emails, only 2-3 of which were actually new/original … the rest were duplicates.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
