By time I got home yesterday from my doctor’s appointment and my Reclast IV treatment I was exhausted! Talk about a delay in the lab area – I don’t know if they had several out sick or on vacation or what but I have never seen it that packed before – I walked into the lab area to get my blood work done and all the seats were taken and about 15 people were lined up leaning against the walls! I handed in my paperwork and joined the people holding up the walls! After about 10 minutes I was finally able to have a seat and it was close to 20-30 minutes later ( I didn’t time it) that my name was finally called for my blood draws – yes plural always about 5 or 6 tubes! Then back to the infusion department where I had to wait about 30 minutes for a result of one of the test before they could begin my IV – I think total including the doctor appointment I was at the clinic for close to 2 and half hours – I was tired when I left and no shopping done – got something to eat and headed home – so glad this IV treatment is only done once a year – the doctor appointment was routine – nothing wrong with me – just check up routine for my auto-immune stuff and meds that I am on.
So anyhow no sewing got done until evening. It rained Sunday night and continued on throughout most of the day – but at least it was light rain not the bad stuff that you do not want to drive in.
Sunday night while we were watching two episodes of Shetland (a Scottish show) I basted a bunch of hexies for the Handful of Scraps quilt which – yes I did take a break from. I will get more thread basted and really pack that container full as I will use them all plus more most likely. Linking up to Esther’s Quilt Blog.
I got 4 stars ready – dog ears off – to make today – that will put me at 5 of 6 rows ready for Murrieta Stars.
Our daughter Melanie and her side kick Aniya – her great niece – came over Easter for a bit while Easter eggs were being hidden for this munchkin to find. First thing this little girl did jumping out of the car is run to the house with two eggs in her hands saying that she had pretty eggs for Aunt Karen and Uncle Mike – so excited – she is getting pretty used to our house over the last year or so and she includes us in her family now and we include her in ours – she is our son-in-law’s great niece.
I hope to get some work done today – the house needs cleaning and I have sewing to get done after having several lazy days in a row in that department.
Question: I finally found a sweater pattern that I think this inexperienced knitter can make!!! Looking at the directions you make a big square basically with knit, purl – I can do that – but my question for you knitters when it says knitting needles size 19 (15mm) 29” circular knitting needles does that mean it can be done on straight 19” knitting needles or does that mean 19” circular needles 29” long? I have never used the circular needles so a little confused on that. This pattern looks like an oversized shrug which is a style I love and would be great for cold nights by the fire when camping I think – maybe in a rusty color or forest green. Looks like you are wrapped up in a blanket
