Wow, I did something else

Sarcasm is abundant in my life.

I read about everyone working on UPO’s, so I got crazy and finished one that has been sitting around for quite a while. My daughter used to be a bookwork. Now that she is older there are things that are far more important. It will be a reminder though. I put the titles of many of the books that I found in her room on the “spines” of the books. If nothing else, it will be memories for her. It only took me about 5 years to finish. It will now go on list of things that need long armed. Hopefully I can get to that soon.

Pillowcases – This is something I can do, that does not make much time, but does get me in the sewing room. I just had 42 picked up from my house that will go to the shelter. It helps me get rid of some of my rather large stash of fabrics. Sometimes when I get some of them out, I really wonder what I was thinking about when I bought them. They do make fabulous pillow cases though.

So, I am slowly working on getting better. To add to all my other issues, I have a heart rate issue. It suddenly goes up for no good reason and it is constantly draining all my energy. Doc gave me something to slow it down which seems to be helping, and I will see a cardiologist in a couple of weeks. It seems that when one thing goes wrong a bunch of other things follow.

Since I have a three day weekend, I am hoping to get some sewing done. I would really like to get the quilt finished that has been on my long arm since my health went AWOL. It has been on there about 6 months, at least. Fingers crossed that it will happen this weekend.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

God Bless the USA

  1. I’m getting inspired again because of your posts, Lori. The bookshelf quilt is one I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and the pillowcases are a good reminder too. I made a couple of them for Christmas and found out how easy they are to make and how much nicer they are than store-bought ones. So thanks for the reminders to get cracking. Great job, by the way!

  2. Hi Lori! I’ve always wanted to make a bookcase quilt – there are oodles of us bookworms out here! My whole family reads just as often as possible, and my niece asked me to make her one like yours. That hasn’t happened yet – soon. I’m sorry you are having heart issues. It sounds like a cardiologist needs to get involved. Your stack of pillowcases look pretty and useful, too. {{Hugs}} a bunch for you. Good luck with the longarm and most of all, enjoy the long holiday weekend. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. It is good to hear that you have found your way back to the sewing room. That is a lot of pillowcases! Love the bookshelf quilt top, and I think your daughter will enjoy seeing her “old favorites” remembered on the quilt years from now. Prayers for continued healing and hoping that the medical professionals can get you sorted out. Quilty hugs

  4. Enjoy the longer weekend, rest, relax and breath. The names on the spines was a great project 🙂 In my thoughts with these health problems.
