Shoulder surgery tomorrow. Can't eat after midnight and surgery is at 11. It's a standard surgery but still not having spent too much time in a hospital outside the delivery of my children it still makes me nervous. Results in a tension h... Read more

My Kalaidescope quilt
Tuesday, February 07, 2012      10 comments

I still have to put the final outside borders on but the top is pretty much done. I used the residuals of my stack and whack to act as borders and then made the corner blocks all the same as well. I had to get creative as I ran out of the red ... Read more

My lucky lucky day
Friday, February 03, 2012      12 comments

Today - I put in 30 min on the bike at lunch for 6 miles. Then went swimming after work and did 50 laps. Those last 4 were tough but I did 50 breast stroke. That's 140 laps this week. So why was it lucky? I got home and was sitting ... Read more

Got some biking in - but only 4 miles as I had a short lunch due to meetings. I probably should have done some more after work but wanted to get some needlepoint in. I hit 105 miles this year so far, so inching towards my goal. I did do s... Read more

Celebrating the new year - means a lot of food and family. For the most part the food choices were easy to make with fresh fish, chicken and veggies all available. But what I have seen is Chinese food tends to be high in sodium sooooo to offse... Read more

Surgery is abt 3 weeks away so before I have to limit my cardio options I figured I would try to increase it a bit in the meantime. Went to the pool today after I did 30 min on the bike (6 miles) and did 20 laps in the water. I surprised m... Read more

Talked to the surgeon - and even though I have a small rotator cuff tear and I now no longer have problems raising my arm the underlying problem still exists and may flare up in 2 days or 2 years or never. So....... Surgery scheduled for ne... Read more
What I plan to do with my swap blocks....
Tuesday, January 24, 2012      11 comments

We just completed a block swap on our QL team. I made extra blocks to add among the swappers. Because I was in both swaps I would get a 24 from the swap and then kept one of the extra blocks for a total of 25. Sashing has been my savior when ... Read more
I do enjoy uncovering the mystery
Saturday, January 21, 2012      14 comments

I think Stack and Whack quilts are fascinating. I do enjoy uncovering the mystery of what each block will look like using the same fabric. It turns into a kaleidoscope design. I have to make 16 blocks to make the quilt top and I've made 7 alr... Read more
Slow and steady

So completed basically 4 weeks where I've increased my cardio signficantly and kept within my calorie range. Jump starting these old bones after 50 seems to take more work. Although small progress - total of 2 pounds - wishing it was more. St... Read more

Husband has laid down the law - I have 3 unfinished quilts where the tops are all done but I have not completed the quilts. (one I don't think ever will be done - as I just don't like it). I hate the final stage of quilting where you sandw... Read more
2011 Exercise report
Sunday, January 01, 2012      4 comments

In 2011 I did 414 miles down from 602 the previous year BUT - I will say having my hip replaced did factor into that decrease. I also logged 13,325 minutes that's about 1,110 minutes a month or roughly 36 minutes a day. So now onto 2... Read more
