Today the only thing that is not listening to me is the little thing in my stomach that says "feed me" and she's been yelling at me all day. Tried to cut back at lunch and had it with no bread....then baked chicken for dinner along with some carrots but oh my it is trying to tell me I need another whole meal. I'm hoping that stomach voice will settle for honeydew melon. I have the worst time remembering about care giving when it comes to myself.
I did sew a lot today. Finished one row and have another one almost finished on the machine. Someone suggested I try a different method of stitching my appliques down so I tried it. It's OK but doesn't seem as finished as using the buttonhole stitch around all those things. Except I'm really bad at going around corners and curves. But this one is cute.
Of course the ice cream sundae will get a cherry button after it's quilted.
1. quiet day at home with only my own company
2. today would have been my mother's 90th birthday
3. some kids stopped to pet Buck again today
Tomorrow will be another day at home. I'm hoping I can get another 2 rows done. I have 4 finished now and need at least 8 to turn the quilt in for prizes. I wasn't going to turn one in because the only shop near me is the one I go to all the time and I turned in last years to them. I was sort of waiting for someone else to turn in one. But if no one else has by the guild meeting on the 9th I'm going to turn in this ice cream quilt. That is of course if it's done by them so I can go back to my other projects.
