It's a new week, and I'm continuing my search for more satisfaction and less stress. I have to admit, with all honesty, that most of the stress is what I put on myself. I try to make quilts for everybody else, and make very little for myself. In an attack of selfishness, I told everyone over the weekend, that Jake will be the only one to get a quilt this year. And that will be a panel quilt for his birthday. This year, I begin to concentrate on ME. Perhaps it's too selfish, but it's what I need. I received a new book order last week, and this quilt struck my eye. I love fall, and after watching some videos on YouTube, I have decided to do freezer paper applique by hand on this one. Over the weekend I traced off the designs for the pumpkins, acorns, and the crow. And it was so beautiful yesterday, that I actually got to sit on the deck to cut them out. This morning, I will choose my fabrics and start preparation. I've never done prairie points, but may take a stab at it on this one. To fuse my freezer paper, I will get to use my new mini-iron that Rod got for me for Valentine's Day.
I continue to concentrate on my eating habits, and I am pushing myself to walk more. And this morning, my blood sugar was 131, the lowest it's been for an age. I beginning to feel like I'm getting my life back on track.
Have a good week.
