See that, Kate gets me! She saw the symbolism of the rising sun on the world! If I had a prize, you would have won!
I now have lost 15.6 lbs and am halfway to goal!
So I worked on this today and got it to the top stage. This one was fun. Caroline is pretty staid so I wanted modern improv, but controlled modern improv. I like it.
Here are all the Plus Blocks, I guess these are crosses, huh.
Here they are spread out. Getting a feel for how many sashing strips I need.
With the sashing in, it spreads out the crosses. They look good.
It looked even better with everything all trimmed and proper.
At the last minute I decided to make it not square. You have heard me complain before that I just don't like square quilts. So I made this one not square. This makes it 41 wide and about 52 long.
I would have added more of the background to the top and bottom......but I used EVERY LAST inch of that fabric! This is all I had left.
I can still take it off. What do you think?
My back felt better, that shot worked pretty fast. Now I need to make the appointment with the spine doctor. I still feel the tightness and the muscles up the side of the spine were sending spasms to my right shoulder. What's up with that? I think it was Suzette who recommended the bungee chair as a replacement in my sewing room. And it is a really a comfortable chair. I tend to sit further back in it. Which makes my posture better and my back hurt less.
Hopefully the steroids will clear up my sinuses and stop this incessant ringing in my ears. Little chance of that though, I think the ringing is a fixture. Must be from the years I toured in that rock band!
You know, I have a lot of problems. None of them are going to kill me though. They will just make me miserable until something else does!
