Hello everyone. I took an extended break from my blog. I have been dealing with some health issues and just needed to concentrate on that. I haven't even done a lot of quilting. I went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and things are looking better. I did not want to go on any medications, but just could not get my blood pressure down. I am now taking a BP pill once a day and 2 diabetes pills daily. I am doing better, but still have a ways to go. I go back to the doctor in a couple of weeks for a complete blood workup. I am hoping my healthy eating and exercising for the past couple of months will help with the results. I have also lost about 13 lbs. I'm just taking things one day at a time. Well, enough of that.
I did manage to get a couple of projects completed. First I finished the Spring Flowers table topper. I think it turned out pretty good and was made completely from scraps. (Most sent to me from Cyndi.)
I have also been working in the yard and the garden. We have 5 rows of potatoes and a row of onions all looking very good. They like the cold wet spring we have been having. This past weekend I planted 8 cabbage plants. They looked good this morning when I checked on them. I got the whole garden hoed earlier. I also have 3 rows of green beans planted, but not up yet. I have my tomato, eggplant, and pepper plants, but decided to wait to plant them. We had frost warnings out for the past couple of nights. I am hoping to get them planted this weekend.
I put this Thimbleberries mini quilt together very quickly. I will quilt it when I can get it sandwiched.
