It's Raining, It's Pouring
This is my first block, completed, of the Whig Rose quilt by Kim Diehl. I've pulled all of the fabrics for the second block except one piece. I decided to just choose fabrics for one block at a time. So, I'm almost ready to start the second block.
It's pouring the rain today. Looks like from the middle of the country to the eastern seaboard will be having some kind of 'weather' today. We have to go to the funeral home tonight, and needless to say, we are not looking forward to that. A friend and colleague died suddenly at 58--it will be a really difficult evening. He was such a dedicated husband and father that his family is just totally devastated. Add the rain and winds, and you know that I just want to curl up here in my nest.
I MADE myself go out yesterday to try to find something to wear tonight. I have about 20 extra pounds on my body right now, and I feel like a hippo waddling around. :) All of my clothes are too tight, and I'm miserable when I have to 'dress'. Yuk. But let me tell you, I HATE the styles that are out there right now!!!! If you aren't 20 and stick thin, well, forget it!! At least in my humble opinion, that is. I came home with a pair of black slacks and a black skirt but NO tops. Those nylon, stretchy things that are in the stores now are AWFUL on me. So I'll just have to pull out one of my ancient, loose-fitting dresses, and go like the Country Cousin that I am, hoping that no one will pay me the least bit of attention. Vain, I know, but I go out so seldom, and I really have gained so much weight during this mess with my thyroid, that I would just hide out at home until I get the weight off if I could. :(
I've been such a bad blogger the last couple of months. I apologize. So this is my attempt at doing better at posting. Thought if I posted on the first day of the month, maybe--just maybe--I could get back to posting at least every other day. You know, tho, there ae just some days that I truly feel like I have nothing to say that's worth sharing. :)
I've already tried posting once today and lost it...so, let's see if I can get this one up. :)
