Staying On Task

When I’m working on big projects, I will either obsess and work on it until it’s done – ignoring everything… or I’ll lose interest in the project and not finish at all.  Something I’ve been working on is starting projects and following through while keeping life on a normal schedule.   The squid quilt is  going to be one of those projects.  Luckily I can make the little hexagons anywhere, and they are starting to add up!

Even with a busy summer work-wise,  I think I’m close to having half of all the blues made, and I have a good chunk of peachy colors done for the squid itself.  I’m looking forward to having them all made so I can lay them out and start playing with color and placement.  They are like fun game pieces or something… for now, I just need to keep making these little guys. 

I had a great doctors visit this week too ~ seems my triglycerides went WAY down, fasting blood sugar when down, vitamin B levels are back to normal, iron levels went up, and my candida count went from 4+ to 2!  So my diet is definitely making a difference, at least in some aspects, and that makes me feel really good!!  There are a few other issues we’ll be working on and testing…  but for now, what I am doing is making things better instead of worse ~ and that’s enough to make me feel good.

So I will continue with the food journey and continue avoiding gluten, while staying on task with my sewing project… and keep up with work!  Speaking of which, I have a huge pile of accounting to do… better get to it ~

What A Week!

I have been so busy this week that I haven’t spent much time sewing… but I did get in some time to make a bunch of hexies for my newest quilt project: 

It’s eventually going to be a squid in water!  These are some of the “water” hexies.  They are 3/4″ big, and my first big hexagon quilt in general.  I figure it will take me about a month to make all the pieces, depending on how much time I can spend on it… and how my hands hold up.

Speaking of aquatic life, my daughter was in town this week and today we all went to the fish store and bought some new tetras and 2 plecos for our fish tank, and had a fantastic lunch at Ya Hala before she had to get on the train to go home.  We had a lot of fun this whole week while she was here.  Since she moved to Seattle last year, I find I really miss her energy in the house and really look forward to her short visits.  This is also part of the reason I did not have much time to sew… but I’m not complaining!
