Presidents Day projects

Hope everyone that got the day off enjoyed doing something they liked. I got up this morning with good intentions to get all this stuff done. First I worked on a baby quilt and this is where it sits right now waiting for me to get back to it.
Because I got side tracked on the next family quilt block that is due in March. Everyone else in the family said they had already done their block so I had to do mine(cant be the last one done). It is done but not squared up, I am going to let the person getting it do that so they can match the others. You can find the tutorial here at LaineyBug Designs. It turned out rather cute. A little side note it does have a y seam.

Well I also have a crochet project I am working on and I realized that I had picked up the wrong crochet hook smaller of course, so I had to take out a whole bunch of rows.
Then I have been working on this weaving project just to try out the loom and to try and figure out how the foot pedals work and what they control. I think I loaded a couple of the strands wrong but oh well it is just practice. I don't think I should quit my day job just yet;)
I am pooped, I did some laundry, dishes, cooked two meals and took a little nap. I think I will have to go back to work to get some rest. You know how us government workers are, we just sleep all day;)
I love my days off especially the extra ones like today. Thanks for stopping by.

Oh the Places You Will Go

It has been so cold here below zero and we have had some snow so it was a perfect day to spend quilting.I finally got the quilting done on Dr. Suess. Next is to do the boy colorway for the other new grandbaby.  I did do some cleaning. I cloroxed the bathrooms and I think I got to much of the smell. I have and will smell bleach for awhile, but hey, my bathrooms are clean and disinfected.

I have had vertigo for about about a month and a half. I had seen 3 doctors and they just recommended I take some allergy medication and see if that would help. Well I went to the chiropractor on Wednesday and told him about it and low and behold he was able to fix the problem and no more vertigo. I would be dancing but he adjusted my hip and it has been hurting so no dancing for this gal but it is great to have the dizziness gone. If I had only known, I wouldn't have had to suffer for so long. Well my mamma didn't raise a fool so you know where I am headed the next time as soon as it happens.

Well I hope everyone is able to stay warm. Have a great weekend.
