On The Mend and First Finish!

Both Michael and I are feeling much better. In fact, Michael returned to work this morning, but he's taking a nap this afternoon - didn't sleep well last night, which I suspect was anxiety over returning after being away for five days.

I put the finishing stitches on Tattoo Boy's quilt last night. Gotta figure out how to work my new camera and get a photo posted for you all! Very pleased with how it turned out.

Three years ago I had a class at SewEzy and pieced a Valentine's Day lap quilt. My intentions are to have it completed this weekend - it's on the frame right now. Wouldn't it be great if I could get all the tops I have pieced done in 2009? You're probably wondering what stuff I've been smoking! LOL!

Well, we're 23 days into the new year and I'm really amazing myself by keeping up with the Bible readings and (starting this week) the meditations for the clutter class. I think spending 10-15 minutes each morning with those devotions and quiet thoughts really start my day in a great way. I'm calmer at work and able to handle stress much better.

And for those of you Daisy the dachshund followers, she gets her ear medication every night. HER stress level is not good - she HATES the ear drops. She's still shaking her head as if it'll fall off, so I'm not sure the drops are doing any good. Her recovery from medication time is swift -usually takes a chew stick to get over the trauma that I inflict on her each night after dinner.

Have a great weekend!

My aim is to get all my tops quilted this year aswell.

I'm glad Michael is on the mend. Daisy will get there eventually, trouble is you can't explain to dogs that the drops are good for them.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
