Well hopefully this is a good excuse

I have gotten no better at blogging and no better at starting my weight lose journey.  But I have been heavy into my quilting.  I actually have just started this so I am not very good at it....but really hope that I can improve.

This is the first one I did for my grandson from his, his mom's and my old jeans...I am thinking that I really don't like the sashing done like this so I am planning to do something different and I've found a different tutorial that shows a different way.

Next I started my survivor quilt...from old tees that my sister n law had given me because she works with our local race for the cure and my tee from CARTI plus just some old tees that had gotten some stains on them...she is also a survivor.

I had not even finished my survivor quilt when my sister wanted me to work on a jean quilt for her.  So she and I worked together on this one.

And finally, this quilt, I had to have started from old scraps well over 5 years ago and I am just glad to have it done...sadly it just looks like black hearts to me.  I am not as pleased with this one, as some of the material has probably at least 50 percent polyester and I think I would be happier trying to stick with cotton when I live you learn.  I love the jean quilts they are a bit hard to work with in places but I love the weight of them when they are done.  I don't think I will do another tee quilt again unless it is something special like maybe some of my granddaughter's tees from her dance and school functions.

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 is me the bad blogger again

Really I am just no good at this...but am feeling a need to communicate tonight.  I went into the hospital over the weekend with kidney stones and came home with a stint to allow the fluids to drain from my kidney as apparently this kidney stone is blocking and causing infection.  I have to go back for more x-rays and to have them busted up over the next two weeks.  My health has really gone down bad.  I feel like I have aged 10 years in the last two.  So now to what I am needing to get off my chest.  This trip has made me realize that I have to take my health into my own hands.  I need to lose over 100 lbs and I have to do it.  Twice while in the hospital my diabetes was bad enough that they felt that I needed insulin.  So I have to say this here and say it out loud...I need to start a journey of weight lose and healthier eating and life style.  So I am open to any comments of encouragement.

Wonder if this could make me a better blogger?

Well I am the worst blogger ever but I will not give up...trudging on.....

I did finish up my chemo and I've had pet scans and tests after tests and so far there is no signs of the cancer returning...and the tests have finally now slowed down some...don't have to go for another until October....just keep praying that God will see to it that nothing comes back

Things have finally slowed down for my parents are getting good visitation with my great nephew...and we can thank God for all these blessings...

Cannot tell you how happy I am that I can create a nice positive post here.

Some time back I ran across a very nice blog that had some angel wings that I so would love to try to recreate...not sure if the young woman that created these knows what a talent she has...but I love them...Christmas Angel Wings
