ON TIME-----

Yes--staying home does get more done--
and I am right on schedule for my SAL blocks for the week--
Here is Monday's and Tuesday's--
And here is today's--
Just one more block for the first row to do tomorrow--
then next week I want to do the embroidery on each block---
Now I do, now, realize that I do not need to have these blocks done until the end of December--
not the first of December--but plan to keep it to the first--then I have the whole month of December to just do Christmas things--soooooo!!!!!

Last night I did start this redwork project==
I did order the stenciled on pattern from Bird Brains--
it is already printed on a water soluble fabric and all you have to do is remove the backing and smooth it to the fabric and start stitching--I can handle that--wished they would print out the other Angel stocking pattern they carry--I have boughten the pattern--but it is more detailed that this one--so would be great if it was already done!!!
Now you can order this 'fabric' to trace unto yourself--but my printer did not seem to like it--sooo!!!

And today I was able to get this project planned out and prepped and even started on the applique--
can you tell what it is yet??????


And this morning I finally got all the white embroidery blocks to the Gardner's Journal quilt --
all hand quilted--
so now it is back to quilting the blocks around the embroidery blocks!!!!!!

And on Monday and Tuesday I got some new things installed in the apartment--
new drain pipes under the kitchen sink and the bathroom sinks--
and--
 a new toilet!!!
theses are the new higher ones--
(yes I need a small stool so my feet touch the floor !!!!)
but they are water saving and I mean they will probably see a big drop in the water bill here now that mine is done--my old one took forever to fill and shut off --this one is really fast--and for the elderly here they are much easier for them to get up and off of them---
so I have now 'graduated' to another 'level' of senior living!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I would chuckle to myself the whole time the guy was putting them in--
as he talked to himself and the 'pipes' or whatever the whole time--
now I know how I sound all day????????????


Welllllll---time to get back to work---
don't forget the canned gravy to have on hand next week for Turkey day--
just in case you either run out or-----???????

Hugs, Di and her silly kitty!!!!
PS--Miss Gracie "thinks" she is cooking the Turkey!!!!!
