Keep Plugging Away

I’m not going to say, hey I’m back, because that seems to mean I’ll be here every week. I am going to post more, but can’t say how frequently because my neighbor, who after 19 years became a part of our family is quite ill. For the last few months we’ve been helping her. She was finally ( after 6 trips to the ER) was diagnosed with cancer that had metastasized and is an extremely fast growing cancer. In a short time she’s gone from walking to bedridden and on care and comfort. We all know how painful and difficult it is to stand by helplessly while we are losing someone. Anyway, I’ll be back and forth trying to deal with that and trying to busy my free time with things that keep my mind occupied. I have my quilting that I’ve been away from for such a long time, that I am pulling out and diving into. I also have my Succulants that never cease to amaze me with their beauty and individuality. They’re all so beautiful 😊

My dear friend Susan helped me get back on my blog, it had turned into a challenge. Lol. I thought I would try and brighten up my face page and managed to botch it up and had a terrible time getting things back to normal. Actually I didn’t get it back to normal, Susan did. 🤪. Thank you so much Susan.
I’m going to get off here for tonight and try to be back soon with some brighter news. HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone, be safe and God Bless.

This Isn’t Quilting

My fabric mess- ugh

well, I’ve tried for three days to get at least two cushions reupholstered but I’ve had the worst luck.  I injured my neck quite a few months ag when I fell backwards into the bathtub. I was out of the tub drying off and the next thing I knew I was I the tub sideways. Hit my neck and head, I think I injured my back too but haven’t had that checkey.d out.  It’s hurt since then, but gotten bad lately.  Anyway, back on the subject, I’ve been trying to get my brothers patio furniture done.  Since I hurt my neck, I can stay on the floor cutting ( that’s my cutting table lol. ) usually for an hour or two. This past week or two I haven’t been able to do it, no matterhowhard I try.  Here’s a couple of pic’s of the mess I have.

Just part of the cushions. Just part of the cushions.

Unbelievable. lol I am so grateful that God gave me my wonderful husband.  He’ll put up with this mess until it’s done.  Unfortunately for today it stays that way, I’ve got an ice pack and heating off and on, to ease the pain.  I promised Bert a Carrot Cake two days ago and one way or another I’m going to get it done.  OMG!  I got the recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction  and it’s the best carrot cake we’ve ever had! ( I’m sorry that’s not a link to her blog, I still cannot remember how to do that. Even as easy as it is.)  I will post a picture of the cake when it’s done. We don’t put the almonds in it or around it, hubby doesn’t care for them so I use walnuts in place of almonds, crushed and  pineapple in place of apple sauce yum it’s so good.
