Can I whine some more? Taxes are done and sent off to the accountant, the switch from cable to internet based streaming is done including setting up a new network and having to manually change ALL the connected devices in the house … but now I also have an unexpected patient to care for – poor Keith has developed shingles on his face and there’s involvement around his eye which is completely swollen. As you can imagine he doesn’t feel very well and can’t drive with that eye shut and with everything combined, I’ve had limited time in the sewing room this week.
He was seen in the urgent care and then I drove him yesterday to see an ophthalmologist so we’re being very cautious about the eye. He’s on antiviral meds and I hope things don’t get any worse before they start to improve. I guess we’re both going to have to make time to get the shingles vaccine after we get the COIVD one.
I have managed to load and quilt one top of Mom’s and even got it trimmed, the binding on, and I hand sewed it down last night after Keith went to bed. There’s another top loaded and ready for me to start quilting it today which I hope to get done before I have to go to the dentist later today. Yep, that’s just the cherry on top of this week – a dentist appointment.
On the bright side, Mom’s package arrived with all the bags she’d made me for our family gift exchange and she also sent me two sets of Hearts for two more Log Cabin Heart quilts! I can hardly wait to start on them but I’ve got to finish up the last set of strips and strings log cabin blocks I started in January. Not only did she cut and fuse them, she appliqued them all so they’re ready to go. The hearts are all different colors and one set has scrappy backgrounds of many colors and the other has scrappy neutral backgrounds.
