Fat girl is back.... I just took her little badge on the left off last week since I got tired of reporting bad activity and I wasn't working at it anymore. Well now she's back and reluctantly I have to get moving on this again in a big way. Not that I really care to but I realized something bad on Saturday....my diabetes, which has been totally under control since 1998, is now raging again...B-A-D! I had suspicions, if I admit it to myself. The last hA1-C test wasn't that great and the doc asked me to start testing my blood again...which I did not do because I hate pushing that finger pricker. SO Saturday on the way home from grocery shopping I realized that I couldn't really see that well. Usually my first side effect of too high levels. So I faced facts and plucked up the courage to finally stick my finger and whoa...not good. Very not good.
So me and fatty over there will have to be back on a serious eating schedule and no more sugar. Geez, I hate having to deal with all this again. Sticking my fingers. I think I'll get one of those machines that need way less blood and save my sewing fingers. Soooo, I have lost 5 pounds since the beginning and that's where I start again.
The other day while checking blogs I went to Crazy Mom Quilts and she linked to some cool earrings that inspired the colors of her kids new quilts. SO I had to go see what inspired her and wow! The earrings are to die for. I love colorful bead earrings and these were so cute I had to order some. Don't ya just love those yellow apples?
Oh I do still sew you know. yes, quite a bit. I finished my new mini Easter kit from Jan Patek, but I hate the red border fabric so I have to find another and do the borders. I'm also sewing the border applique for the tumblers, and doing the Nine Orange Pumpkins blocks for the ABC sampler quilt
