First off, let me tell you this.
I looked at my “medical plan” sheet. Today is the 25th. On the 25th I can eat all the things I’ve missed. MILK PRODUCTS….I’m coming for you. I had not idea how much cheese and sour cream I consume….or butter for that matter. EGGS…I had no idea how many products you are actually in. More than 6 ounces of meat. I had no idea how much meat this farm girl consumes. I lived with lower doses of carbs for a long time so it seemed foreign to eat more than normal.
Also on the 25th, I CAN TAKE MY THYROID MEDS again. Yahoo!!
So the second I am awake today….I am running downstairs. I am popping a pill in my mouth and setting a timer for minutes. Then I am going to eat oatmeal WITH MILK ON IT! Kalissa works in Decorah
On the quilting front… I am going to keep working on getting quilts quilted.
I have quilts draped everywhere….. here’s the rack. As full as it looks, since I had my treatment I’ve done five quilts. The rack used to be MUCH fuller. Some of the quilts I have done are really awesome. I can’t wait to show them off. Keep checking back this week. I plan on parading lots of finished quilts.
Draped here are two baby sized quilts. These will go for donation and will be quilted sometime after Thursday when I’m cleared to work on charity quilts again.
This is next up on the frame. It’s a quilt of Kelli’s. The pattern is from Country Threads and is called Farmer’s Daughter. She needs this for a wedding present.
Here is my Jingle All the Way quilt. I need to piece a backing. Under it are three charity quilts that I can’t touch until after Thursday. What for blog posts about them coming soon. They were all bound but then got left there after I had the treatment.
Here’s what I really want to do….Wonky Wishes. Keep watching the blog. On the day I’m showing this one off I’ll be hosting a giveaway for the pattern. It will likely be a one day only giveaway….
Here is a stack of three charity quilts. These will be done after Thursday as well. These all have backs prepped and are ready to go.
In the closet are a few more charity quilts. I think four more. I’m getting closer and closer to a more manageable number. Little by little. I like having goals that I’m working towards especially when I have several days to get a chance to work on them.
Keep cheering me on….
