Quieter Week - Quilt Projects
Thursday, June 20, 2013
This has been a quieter week which has been nice. I have been very tired though. I am still very sore from the falls last week. I think I have a bruised tailbone and my right arm is very bruised. I have been walking on the treadmill in the morning until it stops which has been between 20-30 min. I also have been doing a couple of SP videos. I have to be careful on some exercises because of my injuries.
I feel frustrated because I am still on a plateau and I just can't seem to break it. I haven't decided what new goals to really work on. I am still continuing to exercise at least 30-60 min a day and to stay in my calorie range of 1500-1600 calories a day.
The Black Forest Fire is pretty much contained, but another fire broke out @40-50 miles west of us. Last night the smoke was very bad and we needed to keep the house shut up again. But today it was better.
Our refrigerator is still broken - they needed another part. The repairman won't be back here until next Tuesday. There is a good possibility it won't be fixable and we will get a new one.
Last week I made a baby quilt & matching pillows for a daycare client who just had a baby boy. She had given me an old train bumper pad which I took apart to make the quilt. There was no engine, so I made a new applique.
Also I made a quilt for a daycare girl. She is a first grader and wanted to learn how to make a quilt. She picked out the fabric from my stash I finished it this week. Her last day was last Friday.
Today I made a sundress and panties for my granddaughter's first birthday on Sunday.
