I Had A Blast

I was able to take Judy Sisneros' new class Batik Blast this past Saturday with my friend Jennifer at the Manteca Quilt. I had a really good time. I was able to put my borders on my quilt today. Now to quilt it!

Sewing Again!

I am happy to be back to my sewing machine!

This week I am working on binding the last of the Cherry quilts for my client. This one is the biggest at a twin. I am hoping to have the binding finished early next week.

Earlier this summer I decided to make some clothes for me and the girls. I made me a dress already, not that I have wore it. So this week I decided to make me something else from the pile of fabric and patterns. I made a tunic top out of green printed linen. I love it! I think I am going to make another on. I am wearing the top to a birthday party tomorrow.

Yesterday I decided that I am going to start making a block a day quilt again this summer. If you remember back to last summer I joined the 9-patch a day quilt along. This year I am doing it on my own and doing a framed square block. I really need to use up my blue scraps. I will be posting more later this weekend over at Stash and Scrap Elimination Project.

I have my UFO for this month picked out too. I have a Mystery Quilt that just needs binding. So with any luck I will be able to get that done this month too.

All Over The Place

Okay this is scattered but try to say with me. Today is my first day drug free. I have to go back to work Wednesday and I can't be popping Vicodin like M&M's when I go. They have some crazy drug free policy. Go figure.

So to start today we took the girls for their check ups, they both got shots. So then we took Delaney to get Sushi and Baskin Robbins since she did a good job. I hate those screaming kids. I ordered Delaney her own roll on her own plate and the waitress looked at me like I was crazy. Then she asked "would she like a rice bowl?" I said "NO, I ordered her the sushi she wants." Really I am the mom shouldn't I know what my kid will eat more than you would?

I love this saying "You don't know how strong you are until strong is the only choice you have." Anyone know where it came from?

Tonight I could take a bath and change my bandaids. So I did. Now I am NOT a blood and guts kinda girl. Really if it were up to me I could leave the bandaids on until they deteriorate. I don't want to see under neath. Which is why I don't have a PhD in medicine, I have 2 Fashion Degrees. I changed the first 3 bandaids and was getting sick. They put some BIG ASS holes in me!!! I thought they would had a, the number one, stitch in them. HELL NO! They each have 3 stitches in them. After I did the first 3 I had to lay down before doing the last one. I finally did the one in my bellybutton. I just don't know about that one. So this comes down to I did it myself and didn't puke.

Last I found the Lone Star quilt I want to make. While recovering from the whole bandaid issue I surfed the web. I hit Minick and Simpson and found this!

This is the one I am going to make. I love it! I guess I need to finish a few projects first...

Yesterday was the BIG day. I got to have surgery! I have been looking forward to this. Now I am patiently waiting to heal and have some results. No I did not have cosmetic surgery, yet.

I had 1 surgery with 6 parts to it. Here we go:

1. Lapascopy, they filled my body with gas so they had room to work in
2. Removal of the left ovary, I have been having problems with it
3. Look for and treat endometriosis, Scott can't remember if they found any
4. DnC, to prepare me for
5. Ablation of the Uterine Lining
6. Re arranging my intestines, once inside of me they found my intestines bunched up on my left side. It is possible that this was also contributing to some of my problems

The surgery itself took just over 2 hours. It was very long. I feel really good today, all thing considering. I am taking my meds as scheduled, I don't want to feel any pain. The only bad part was the breathing tube was in for so long that my throat and mouth hurt. I also have very little voice. I am eating ice cream, cough drops and soup.

Scott came home on Monday to help take care of me and the girls.
