I was bound and determined to be able to take some quilting stitches on T#3’s quilt yesterday … and it happened. I had to sew on the outer border and then it was time for basting.
I would have rather had a full-on shot of the entire quilt, but DH was running errands … this was the best I could do by myself. I was able to get a few stitches in before dinner and am looking forward to getting in a few more today.
My walking partner Lois twisted her leg early last week and has taken time off from walking to allow her leg to heal. I didn’t walk last week … it was too easy to just skip it and head into the sewing room. But I can’t afford to repeat that this week … between my osteopenia and my aging metabolism, I really need to walk. DH normally goes to the Y to work out in the afternoons … I asked him if he would be willing to go in the morning instead this week. I need someone to motivate me and to hold me accountable. Thankfully he was agreeable to that … and suggested we go after dinner last night since neither one of us had gotten any exercise yet. I was thankful for his suggestion, even though exercising that late really wiped me out. I was ready for bed by 7:00 but forced myself to stay up another hour. An early bedtime = an early “get-up” … as in 3:30 this morning!
I finished up my third audiobook yesterday morning and am a fair ways through audiobook #4. Between listening while sewing, quilting and walking, it doesn’t take long to get a book “read”. I’ve discovered that narration can be purchased, often for a nominal fee, for many Kindle books at www.amazon.com, making them an audiobook for much less than purchasing the audiobook version … since I already own several Kindle books, I’m wondering if the narration could be purchased for any of those ebooks?
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
