CONFESSION TIME


I honestly thought I could finish my OMG (One Monthly Goal) project "3's Company." This past weekend was too rough for me. I've been dealing with some "life changing" issues. I was diagnosed "Post Menopausal". To make things worse, I am also dealing with my thyroids. I have a hard time drinking cold water, every muscle and joint in my body aches like hell. But what's worse is I am experiencing temporary memory loss! These are all (except thyroid) the symptoms I've been experiencing. I WANT MY BODY BACK!!!

I tried working on the last few blocks. When I had to cut the pieces out, I forget to check off what I have cut. Then I would screw up by cutting the pieces "AGAIN" but with the other fabric! SO I stopped and gave up! I know I can find a piece of fabric in my stash to replace my screw up. However, I just walked away from it all for now.

These symptoms just HIT me all of a sudden and I am trying my best to deal with it. My doctor prescribed an antibiotic for my thyroids. But the darn prescription is doing nothing for me other than shortly after taking pill (horse pill), my chest hurts like someone just kicked it!

The Doctor's here in Hilo are something else! I am so used to having a good Doctor who knows exactly what I am going through! But here in Hilo, its a whole different world. I feel like I am living in the third world. LOL

Anyway, this is my story of why I cannot finish any projects this month! Yes I had my sister and her granddaughter here visiting, but they were only here for the weekend. Bless my sisters heart, she has been helping me researching through Google about Post Menopause. I too have been researching and I am not liking what I am reading!

SO life goes on Right? I will finish up my 3's Company when I come back next week. I am going to Oahu on Thursday to visit my siblings, visit my mother's grave. I also have an eye appt.! You read right! (= I am flying to get my eyes check. Oahu have better doctors. So IF I can find a Doctor that can see me while I there, I definitely will stay for that!

Moving forward, I did manage to get caught up on my Sparkling Sampler blocks. But I think I am going to not start a new project for OMG until April. In March,  I will finish my 3's Company, finish a row or two of my Dear Jane and Farmer's Wife Sampler and get caught up on 182-Day Solstice.

I will write again upon my return. Have a wonderful week. Do find some time to do what you enjoy! Until next time...

Sparkling Sampler


Its been very busy here with family coming in for a few days. Its been great having family here for a while. My sister and her granddaughter are gone now. I was behind in my Sparkling Sampler. I got two blocks done.











Now to get my OMG for February done. I am really hoping to get February challenge done by Monday. If you recall, I decided on Thimbleberries BOM 3's Company. I will reveal on Monday finished or not!

New Look


I like to change things up from time to time here at home. Whether changing furniture around or on my blog. I wanted a new look for my blog. I like the new clean & crisp look.

Off to get started on my OMG challenge. If you like to check out what others are doing, just click on the picture below. There are a lot of us taking this challenge.   I like the fact that you have exactly a month to complete your project. Since February is such a short month, I need to get going on this project.

I won't be doing much tomorrow in Studio. My DF (Dear-Father) has an eye appointment.

I wish you all

182-Day Challenge...


Its been so busy this past week. The only sewing done this past week was completing 182-Day Solstice Challenge, Block 8, Never Ending Love . If you are interested in seeing other blocks, click here. There are really pretty blocks and their version.

Here is my block. Since Valentine's day is in a few days, I thought it would be nice if I completed this block in red. The red fabric has little hearts. Click on picture. I am not a "pink" person. Pink would have been cuter but I chose a swirl pattern.




Block 8 - Never Ending Love


I really need to get caught up on my February OMG challenge. 
I am still working on 

block 1.

Off to do some sewing. Have a wonderful week everyone. Hope you find some time to do what you so enjoy!

W.I.P. (Work In Progress) update...


I didn't get any sewing done this week! My brother arrived here on Monday and its been kind of crazy here.

This week I was able to keep up with 182 days Solstice. Block six.


For this block, I used Moda Layer Cake "Serenade" by Kate Spain. I am mixing layer cake with other fabrics. It turned out nicely.

I will be busy next week playing catch up on my other projects. I really want to stay focus this year.

Have a wonderful weekend!
