MY COMPUTER IS STILL OUT AND I HAVEN'T GOTTEN A NEW ONE. SO MY BLOG IS NOT BEING UPDATED AS OFTEN. I AM TRULY SORRY. :(
Well, we woke up this morning to a government shut-down. Why do they threaten this every year? I get so tired of our elected officials not being able to pass a budget before it gets down to the last second. This year the infamous "Obamacare" stalled progress. Oh well, I am not going to get off on this. Many of you may have voted for the President, but I can assure you, I did not. I have a lot of things I could say about the way our country is being run, but for now, I will pass. I don't want to get my blood pressure rising. LOL
On the new way of eating front, I have lost 15 pounds. I have strayed a little, but am getting refired up about this new way. I still have not eaten bread, cornbread, bagels, etc. I did slip up and eat a cookie given to me yesterday, and regretted it before I finished it. It was wayyyyyyy ttooooo sweeeeet! Not again. This old girl learned her lesson in a hurry. I almost got sick from eating it. Thank you, Jesus!!! I am a new person! There are a few things that I need to tweak with what I'm eating/drinking. I'm still off my sodas. Was going to break down and drink one yesterday, but I was strong and decided not to.
On my quilting journey, I am working on a baby quilt using the disappearing nine patch pattern. Never have I made one of these before, so I'm having to be really careful in placement. Of course, I got real close and personal with my seam ripper yesterday. LOL I had sewn two rows together, then added them to the first two rows I had made. Well, I looked closer as I was pressing it and discovered that I had sewn one square to one of the rows the wrong direction, and the second row was completely wrong for where I had sewn it. So, out came the seam ripper. I fixed the one square and added it back to the first two rows. I will make another row and then add it and the row that was wrong after it. That should fix it. I am excited to see how this is going to turn out. Below is what I have done so far.
I hope the baby likes it. The grandmother ordered it to match the baby's room. Hopefully it does. I started cutting out the triangles for the Day and Night quilt I'm making and cut my left index finger pretty badly, so since that quilt has white in it, I decided to make this one and get it shipped while my finger is healing. I don't want to get blood on a quilt.
I guess I have rambled on enough for today's post. I hope I can keep it updated more often. I usually get on hubby's computer while he is cooking breakfast and not again for the rest of the day, but he had to go to town this morning, so I took this opportunity. I wish you all a blessed day. Pray for our country and for our military. God Bless you.
