Finish Up Friday is Here.

Today I will work on a project that is simple to do for a gift I need on Sunday.  So far this week I have finished up knitting baby hats for my "3rd Monday Crafting Group" I am starting on a Christmas Runner I am making at my quilting group "the Quilters at 3rd & Vine".  I started cutting out my 2 1/2" strips then cutting them into 4" segments, then I will sew them together.  I also need to quilt my other runner.  Wow I think I have planned a busy day today.  "Lovin it" :}

Can't sleep tonight!

Here it is 2am in the morning and I can't sleep.  I got some very good news from my spine specialist.  I don't need surgery at this time since my leg and back pain have improved after having the steroid shot in my back 6 weeks ago and strength has gotten better in my R leg.  I was not looking forward to surgery so close to my Shoulder replacement surgery in late August.  I am so glad I opted for the steroid shot in my back in October.  My Shoulder continues to get stronger daily and I am back to working in my Studio - quilting and sewing and organizing. 
Yesterday morning while reading an old quilting magazine, American Patchwork & Quilting,  I found a pattern for a small wall hanging that would be ideal for spring.  It is called "Nature's Beauty" by Designer Carol Armstrong.   She also has a book out that I want to read.  I think I will see if it is available in the Library downtown.

Sleep study finished

Here it is Thursday am and I am home sitting here at the computer, sleepy with my hair full of gunk and trying to decide if I am going to shower 1st and then lay down or sleep 1st & then shower....I think the 2nd option is what I will do, I am SO sleepy so I will get a small towel to lay over my pillow and crawl into my comfy bed and nap till noon or so if i want. 
Just finished up a sleep study and added another diagnosis to my long an growing list this year,  LOL, I have sleep apnea and need to get a CPAP - Oh well....I guess that will be OK - just another thing to lug around when I travel.  so I will say Nap time for now and talk to you all later. LOL - Momo

PS - I did stop at Perkins an had a good breakfast before coming home so I did not miss breakfast, Yea!
Q.-1 what would you have done in this situation?
Q -2 what are you doing today to take care of yourself?
Love to hear your thoughts.

Monday Morning

I enjoy my mornings checking out my e-mails and newletters from my favorite blogs.  I looked out my window this morning and saw a slight dusting of snow swirling around on the blacktop.  Oh, it is November after all but it has been so nice the past few days, autumn weather was enjoyable but now it has turned colder this morning. I wonder if it will snow some more.  I should check out my weather station for news.  Over the weekend I was in my Studio and finished up a mini quilt that I will share with my readers in My Studio and also Quilting & Sewing Arts.  Here is a couple of pictures Id like to share

My Christmas Star/Autumn Pumkins Mini-Quilt:

What a rainy day outside

Did you Vote yet?  I did.  Today is a dreary, cold & rainy day but sharing it with others while waiting in line to vote made it ok.  It only took me 1/2 hr to get inside then once inside I was done in about ten min.  Glad I got to vote thanks to my friends, Gwen & Bob for picking me up.  They said they had a long wait too.
