Burst of Energy!

Okay, so I know I haven't kept up with the blog and I'm hoping that no one is getting worried. My last visit to SCCA showed my numbers at 199. They are not moving much...just kind of hovering around 200.

Those who are around me know that I feel great! I have had this burst of energy and I feel like my old self. I have been busy, busy, busy taking advantage of every minute that I feel good. I thought I would share some of the things that I have been doing in the past few weeks.

I love making quilts but when it comes to quilting by machine I get a little intimidated. So I have accumulated a bunch of quilt tops over the years and I decided that I need to get them all quilted. I went and got backing material and batting and prepared them all for quilting. Here are pictures of ones I have completed in the last several weeks...and there are more to come!


I got side tracked when Eddie decided to get new furniture. When the furniture came I started redecorating and it snowballed and I ended up moving the piano to the front room. I always wanted it in there but the reason I didn't have it in there is because we had two very large leather chairs that ate up the whole room and there was no room left for the piano. So we sold the chairs and moved the piano in but it still didn't look right. So I removed one of the built-in book shelves, patched up the wall, painted and then decided that piano looked worn and beat up so I painted that too! :)
 The wall behind the piano had another book shelf like the one you see. Now it is gone! I like it! I should have done that years ago.

So there you go. Now you know what I have been up to.
