Hello and Welcome! As my honey is a veteran I have learned a LOT about this weekend in the USA… and it really isn’t meant for family get togethers as it has become here it seems…. more people flying here this weekend than since the pandemic began…. but as a memorial weekend to remember all those who lost their lives fighting for our freedoms!
This was a busy and stressful week for me… but I am glad to say we made it through!!!
I saw a surgeon in Chattanooga that will be doing my knees in a few months time… once I get some other check offs done through my Primary doctor. He plans to do then 6 to 8 weeks apart so as not to do them together ….
Weight loss has slowed down this week but is still coming off and I have not changed any of my eating ways we have been discovering 😀 Keto is awesome for sure for healthy weight loss when nothing else has worked… there are LOTS of great videos on YouTube explaining ketosis and how you body actually prefers and works better with fat for fuel instead of carbs.
I have picked up my redwork again…. as we have been enjoying the cooler weather this weekend….
So while I stitched here and there on the red work bowl…. I took time to remove my old polish….
And put on some fresh polish after a nice mani to massage all my nails beds 🙂
And I sat down my redwork last night with this much done….
QUESTION FOR Y’ALL!!!!!
Would you add some words to the bowl … such as “Flour” or “Cookies” ??? Something Else??? This will be part of a kitchen wall hanging I am making… Please leave me a comment with your thoughts.
I did do some stitching on the wholecloth… but this seems to be the only photo I have and I have more accomplished than this…
When I finish this area photographed I may move right a bit more…. stay tuned for next weeks post to see which way I move it and to see a full photo of what is done on this 😀 I am excited to see it myself!
Meanwhile… our grass in those round spots out front is growing in….
We had lots of hot days early in the week then lots of rain at the end of the week so everything is feeling happy in our yard at the moment…. my honey has worked hard… all those blocks that made those round circles that needed grass seed you ask???
All stacked neatly under the deck for now but once we have good grass we hope to make a fire pit out back with these for autumn 🙂
Above you can see everything is still living that we planted and looking happy too… we love driving into our driveway to see the less cluttered front yard. We are hoping to find a vintage yard implement in the near future to add a bit of whimsy to our front yard center like an old wagon or wheelbarrow we can use as a flower holder of sorts. We will see what we find 🙂
Here is a photo I took of our kitchen…
Thanks for stopping by… I am linking all my handwork shared in this post to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching HERE <<<< Come see what she made this week and how much binding she stitched down too! IMPRESSIVE!!!!
I hope to get that other cushion altered this week now that that doctor’s appointment is behind me… and focus on finishing that small section of the whole cloth and getting some photos 🙂 Also hope to make progress on the redwork bowl & rolling pin with your 2 cents added for what I should add to the bowl… maybe just some swirls???? We shall see>>> Next weekend 😀 Have a blessed week ahead and remember those that fought for the freedom we currently enjoy in America. Memorial Day 2021!
