Blogmas Day 4-6

 


Days 4, 5 and 6

It’s been somewhat hectic and stressful these past few days….

Nothing new!

I’ve been focused on cleaning the house and wanted to get most of it done by Monday because I wasn’t sure how I would be after my appointment at the Breast Center yesterday.

You see I had my annual mammogram a couple weeks ago and they found an area of calcification in one breast. So I had an appointment for further screenings to see if was something or not. The last thing you want to hear is that it could be cancer.

 It was 2 years ago this month that I was in the middle of chemo treatments. 

Well I didn’t quite hear that but was told I needed to have a biopsy to determine whether or not it is cancer this time.

So needless to say I haven’t been thinking much of what to write about until today. Figure I would just be honest with myself and you. 

Now I have to wait until next week to get an answer. 

But it will not stop me like it did last time. I was so fearful and frozen I was unable to function properly. It was like being in a fog all the time. 

I refuse to go there again, I have plans for Christmas and a life to live. 

I continued opening my advents, doing so makes me happy to have something to open each day. 

So here are the past 3 days 










This what Scabiosa looks like, never have grown these myself 




I’m loving all the gifts. 

Amy has been sharing seeds from her beautiful garden and I plan on planting them this next year.  


I did finish another hat 

And I forgot to share the pattern name. It is a paid for pattern. 


Called the Savante Beanie 

Yarn is bulky Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick


And they are quick and easy. 

I found the pattern on Raverly, if you don’t go on raverly I'm not sure where to get it.

I have also been spending a little time on a project I started back years ago.

A Snowman wallhanging  

Going to be so cute when I finish 


That’s about all for now. 

I plan on finishing another hat tomorrow and maybe take a trip to Tulsa to a garden center to look for some Christmas plants and decor.

I’ll take pictures to show you what I find.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.

How to Make a Portable Design Wall

I had wanted to get a portable design wall to take to retreats but did not want to pay the price. Looked at various pins on pinterest and took ideas from more than one to come up with my verison. It worked out great and only cost a fraction of the price. The PVC pipes, joints and 2 yards of felt cost under $22.00 My design wall is 4' x 4' which stands approximately 5 1/5' tall. For this size need 2 - 10ft length of 3/4" PVC pipe for the frame and 4ft of 1" PVC pipe for the feet Cut the 3/4" PVC into 4 - 4' section                                                                                       2 - 1' section              Cut the 1"  PVC into 4 - 1' section          The joints you'll need will be 2 - 3/4" elbows 2 - 3/4" T's 2 - 3/4" to 1" T (this will be the base of the Feet) 4 - 1" elbow Also need pipe cutters (this cost me almost as much

My Sunflower Quilt

  Yea it's done. It has been a few years since I started this quilt. It was a BOM at Sager Creek Quilt Shop . Pam's (the owner) friend Marilyn McSpadden designed this quilt and Pam quilted it. Marilyn  used a lot of different techniques in appliqued designs.I just loved the weaving of fabric in the center of this blocks.   What beautiful quilting she did. I favor hand quilting but for machine quilting this is top notch.  As you can see Marilyn had design some of the blocks in 3 dimensional    And the rouging in the center of this sunflower was fun. Love the details in the quilting. This quilt measures 64 x 82 and was a fun challenge. This quilt will go in my dining room. 

Yarn Along 2/20/13 Spoon Pin Doily

It's snowing here and I know some of you are tired of snow but here we will take the moisture any way we can get it. Plus it just gives me a reason to stay in and work on some of my projects. In this picture I'm not sure if you can make it out but in the background there are some wild turkeys that hang around the house sometime, just  chilling This project I'm working on is Spool Pin Doilies.   I had never heard of them before until Bonnie Hunter had mentioned it on her blog . She a had a viewer send her one for her sewing machine along with a pattern. I did not like the pattern but loved the idea so I decided to make up my own version. I wanted a more simple, smaller and fuller doily. So I tried different thread sizes to get one that I like. (From left to right) I tried sock yarn, which I'll redo because I think I like that look. Heavy weight crochet thread, nope too big Bamboo yarn, I like it. Looks good on my Kenmore. Pearl cott
