Monday, out of Quarantine


I have one car quilt top finished and am well on my way to another.  Now that quarantine is lifted I can go to Joann's for a few supplies.  This was made with the hems of jeans I cut off for customers and saved.  The flannel is remnants I pick up for .75 percent off.  I still have to buy the cotton batting and the flannel backing but will do it with a coupon.  This is for my son-in law Nathan for Christmas.  His dogs can lay on it.

I can officially say I am done with my Christmas shopping.  But my heart goes out to those that will not be shopping this year do to the financial circumstances of COVID.  I think this whole mess has just made me more grateful than ever for the things I do have.

Hubs just went out and started the snowblower to make sure it was up to snuff.  It is so old and I keep expecting it to die a natural death. Our flag lot driveway is over 100 feet long and we share the beginning with an elderly not so easy on her feet older single woman, so we are responsible to keep it clean.  But it started right up we might just get another year out of the old girl.  Snowblowers are girls? Just asking?

Lil sis is suffering from an abscessed molar, so I ran over some meds to her last night.  (class 2 or 5 ? felony according to my daughter) Her face is so swollen on that side and she was in terrible pain. She is finally on an antibiotic.  I felt terrible for her.  I think tooth pain is the worst.

Daughter  is due over with kids in an hour or two. Schmills and Kelsa always welcome.  She is such a smiley happy baby.  Oliver is doing much better, daughter is feeling a little locked down and I can't say that I can blame her.

We will sure appreciate each other a lot more after this mess is over.  At least I hope we do?

I actually got some sewing done for a client today, don't die of shock.  This hiatus I have been on must end. And I am going to start my Christmas baking this week. Also setting a quota on my sewing to force myself to do it.  If I would just do a daily quota like I used to I would be out of work in a week and then I wouldn't have to feel guilty about doing other things.  Like making caramels.

I have less than an hour to get to the bank and Jo anns before daughter gets here, so I had better get moving.


Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. I truly empathize with her tooth pain. I have been on antibiotics since Nov. 14 and have another six days to go. The minute the tooth was out, I actually felt better. Now, I have oxycodone to help with the pain.

    1. They are going to do a root canal on Friday and I think she should just have it pulled.

    2. With an abcess, the infection might not clear out and cause problems later. Root canals are only 90% to 95% effective. I will have an implant later. Safer.

  2. I'm glad to hear the baby is doing much better. I know what you mean about appreciating what you have. My son wanted ideas for his sister, snd us-I said nothing! He has had limited work, though fortunately when he works he makes decent money, but who knows when his next gig will be. Holiday bakin gwill be done, but I need to scale back so I don't have so much leftovers to eat myself.

  4. Glad you are out of quarantine, and I'm glad little Oliver is doing better.
    I love the quilt. I had thought about cutting up some of my dad's shirts to make my son a quilt from his Pop, but I couldn't bring myself to cut them up. Wish I had done the jeans though.

    1. That would be hard, I actually made a coat for a woman out of her dead husbands shirts. It was weird, but what she wanted.

  6. Tooth pain is the worst!! Glad you could help her out with some medication until she got some help of her own.

    1. Thank you and I almost feel guilty because we have not been affected. Well we have in a way as Hubs has no real work at the High School and my shop is way down, but we have enough and that is a true blessing.

    1. I know I break the law all the time it seems. Hubs family was not upset about Oliver as they think the virus is a fake way for the government to take over our lives. I am shaking my head.
