As I write this post it is cool outside and the windows are open… so refreshing!! The calendar says Autumn is due to be here on Tuesday officially 🙂
I love Autumn like I love when Spring rolls around… and I love sunshine and that is our forecast in North Carolina this weekend! Grab a cuppa something yummy and settle in for a bit…
Bonnie Hunter has been so spot on in her daily words of affirmation lately! I can finally share a few things I have stored in my photo bank! lol Are you aware of your strengths?? I am learning to focus more on these lately!
I have a seizure disorder… and until the last few months I had only had 1 in my life and that was a full blown seizure back in 2012… After that seizure I was put on daily medication as they found on exam that I have a likelihood of having seizures due to how my brain formed before birth… so now I am not so patiently waiting to see a seizure specialist… a neurologist.
So this Pooh quote has been a tall drink of water on a hot day to me… My tribe has been holding me up. It is difficult to share… but I felt I should be open with you… so what does a seizure look like for me??? They last 15 to 30 seconds and I stare off or laugh lightly or make lip licking noises. They are considered focal seizures… but I am having 10 to 20 a week at the moment. I rarely ever know I am having them though! My daughter’s visit last week was actually mostly so she could check on me… I have had these little focal seizures while walking, while sitting, while at the grocery store… so I am not sewing on a machine right now or driving or anything fun I enjoy except hand quilting and spending time on the computer. I am having issues with concentration and these seizures leave me tired a lot too. So please keep me in your prayers or thoughts right now! Thanks 😀
Our home goes on the market for sale next week. We are excited to see the pictures the photographer is able to get next week when he comes!
Part of decluttering is selling what isn’t being used … that includes my Fiona …
Fiona was my first vintage machine to get in my quilting history… and my honey built her case so magnificently. I have collected all that comes with her over the years of owning her… so it is bittersweet to have to sell but it is time as she is in a case and doesn’t get used to her potential. The new owner (it sold the day after we put it up for sale on Marketplace) will pick her up on Tuesday … and she lives near us too. So that is nice 🙂
I had two colors of nail polish strips on last week and that just about drove me nuts… so I stream lined my color and put just one color on … it is called Bordeaux Glitz… it is a violet with silver & iridescent flecks of glitter in it 🙂 It makes me happy to look at it!
I am so happy to have these photos to be able to post this week for y’all. And as I close in on the end of the hand quilting I love thinking about my son and his bride to be. I wonder what life this quilt will have. Soon I will decide if I will add some shimmery paint to the sewing lines 😊 I am linking my slow stitching progress to Kathy’s Quilts Slow Stitching Sunday post HERE.
I have also been hoarding some cool project photos I have found on the internet until I figured out how to share all the photos I wanna share with you guys 🙂
This I saw on facebook on Gail Pan’s posting from down under!
This was a long term project a mom started for her daughter then finished it up for her granddaughter (that daughter’s child)… isn’t that cool?!?!!!!
This is a free printable directions by Moda you can find online… I printed it off for after our move… in case I need more to keep me busy and out of trouble! lol
I hope you have enjoyed a relaxing visit with me today… I am happy to be back to my regular posting style … Until next week my friends…
