Considering I was gone for half the day with a trip to Little Rock for my quarterly check up it is not surprising I didn’t get much if any sewing done. While in Little Rock we went out for lunch of course and then over to Sam’s before we headed home. Mike was going to work on getting the outside Christmas lights up and got it almost done and I decorated the tree and did get it done and the boxes cleared out of the living room – mark one thing off the list – well two one was the doctor visit. That was just routine – I see my rheumatologist every 3-4 months and have blood drawn for checks on levels because of medication – same old stuff for almost 30 years now!!
Mike working on lights – 66 degrees at the time – 20 degrees lower today! I’ll show outside lights when he gets down – Aniya will be passing the house last night on the way home from from her Great Granny’s house with her mom and will check them out. She and Melanie will be over on Saturday to make Christmas cookies and to get her Christmas present because I probably won’t see her again before Christmas. I think sometime next week Melanie and I will have a Christmas shopping day – right before the rush but there you go she won’t have time before then and said she didn’t have time to make gifts this year.
One wool applique egg done other than the decorative stitches – doesn’t really look Christmassy in my opinion other than the sides being red and green. Three more to go – applique is already done – not to self – in the future stick with Christmas colors (this was done Sunday afternoon) I think these might be saved for next year at this rate and will I ever get some made for Easter?
Quilting from Sunday night
I rolled down the frame and sat down to work last night on the quilt about 7 PM and will sit and work on this for about 1-2 hours depending on my hands are. I put my hand braces out and have to get used to using them – I don’t find them comfortable but the joints at the base of the thumbs (close by the wrist) are bothering me more and several other finger joints and Doc says get used to them and called in a prescription of Voltrane Gel (I’m not sure on the spelling I will pick it up later today) and anti-inflammatory ointment – Anyone use this ointment and have luck with it? (I actually find it harder to open jars and hold a cup of coffee then put thimbles on my finger tips and quilt!!)
