Quilty Progress & Almost time to see the Doctor!!!

This week I have stayed focused on quilting… that is until yesterday when the bottom fell out of my day and I got sad feeling for no apparent reason…

Then I ran back across this meme Bonnie Hunter made!!!! Joy is the word that caught me and what I was missing!!! Today I am still sad but feeling hopeful though because Thursday I finally get to see the Neurologist about these seizures that won’t stop! YAY 😀

I am joyful too that we are getting closer to our time to move from this home. We are not sure how that looks yet and even the closing date is not firm yet… we still are waiting on some inspections to happen… though we did pass the termite inspection already so that is good!

While we are getting closer to moving I am getting closer to taking this quilt off the frame…

I finished the row I was had just started last weekend and one more beyond that…

Here I am with my thimbles on working diligently…

And here is a photo I took this morning. Linking all this progress to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching HERE <<<

I have spent the week listening to more decluttering advice… I plan to implement as we unpack our worldly belongings at our next home.

I got creative with some left over nail strips this week too… this was quite FUN too ❤

I used strips I had leftover… I store them in a zip lock baggie in the freezer.. and that cuticle treatment is sooo nice and moisturizing… get it at Amazon easiest 😀

I have ordered some fun colored nail strips put out for Halloween by Color Street…. but atm I am letting my nails grow back out as I mentioned last week… so I moisturize my cuticles daily now and lotion my hands and arms daily with Bag Balm ointment while I wait for healthy growth to be my reward 😀

If you are interested in trying these dry nail strips please let me know below. I am NOT having my party in November due to our move and these crazy seizures aren’t yet under control either… so that will wait but I still love having beautiful fingers to quilt with !

Don’t forget if you are polishing your nails with traditional polish or strips like mine to keep up the moisturizing during all seasons!!! Also do NOT use ACETONE!! I use non Acetone polish remover and clips to remove the polish…

So this week we hope to hear when inspections will occur… we should find movers this week and a place to store the items still in our home. We have more to sift through and get rid of… mainly in Rick’s mancave outside.

I plan on quilting when we aren’t packing or thinning down. Then Thursday we go to Asheville to view the motel we think we want to stay in while house shopping and have all our doctor appointments most of all.

Keep us in prayer please and thanks for visiting 🙂

    So much hand quilting progress this week! I am so glad your doctor appointment is this week. I’m hoping the motel is a good short term fit and you find the perfect new home soon. Stay safe, be happy!

    If the termite inspection is clear then I would think everything else re the house would be smooth sailing from hereon. Gosh it is all speeding along, isn’t it. That is excellent news that you see the neurologist this week. I think in these times everyone feels sad sometimes for no apparent reason; 2020 has been a horrible year. As for your quilting, it is looking wonderful, Kathi.

    I am sure you are very anxious to see your doctor this week. I wish you all the best. I have actually been having nail troubles lately and the last 2 Color Street manicures came off after only a couple of days. Why do you store the leftover strips in the freezer? I love to see your quilting progress. Best wishes.

    Kathi I hope all goes well with your tests and home sale and search! It’s a stressful time, but if you only think about a day at a time you will get thru it! I love that we moved a lot, cause it sure does make you do the deep decluttering that sometimes doesn’t happen for years. Will add you to my prayer list

    de-cluttering and packing while waiting for a doctor appointment, finding a temporary place to live and finding movers can be a tiring time. You will feel better after all is said and done I’m sure. As soon as you know for sure when the closing date is you will be ready to move ahead with your plans

    Hand quilting is calming during your unsettling season. You are wise to stay focused on sewing and your stitches look great! Passing one inspection is one less worry. As hard as decluttering is, it’s better to do it now than pack it all. I look forward to your weekly updates. Continue to take care dear Kathi!

    Moving house is always stressful, and I do hope your medical issues can be quickly dealt with. Enjoying what we are doing is always great advice, espe ially when we get immersed in this delightful hobby of ours.

    I would be most concerned about the termite inspection, so this is excellent news. I know you are counting the days until you can see the doc, will be praying for an illuminating visit and wisdom for all decisions. Many years ago I had a very ugly season in my life, and the thing that got me through was working on memorizing Phillipians 4. I never finished the whole chapter, but working on it during those months was a life saver, and it kept me safe from so many attacks by the evil one. Stopped them cold on many occasions, improved my outlook on the others. XXOO

    I had a day last week with sad feelings and I must say going into the sewing room was a help. I’m so sorry you are still struggling with seizures and I admire your attitude. You are getting lots done in spite of them. You do have a lot on your plate right now. Your quilting stitches are so perfect, nothing like mine.
