Forming a Plan Here

I spent a little while up in the stash room last night just kind of looking around.

The first thing that's bugging the bejeebers out of me are the odd fat quarters that are everywhere. I'm going to be pulling some patterns from the pattern "stash" and from the book "stash" and will be using up as many of those odd fat quarters as I can here very shortly. Whatever doesn't get used will get cut into strips. I want those things out of my life!

Tonight I stopped by Ginger's to get a Jane fix, and found the cutest pattern in there. You already know I love BOMs, and here's a pattern I can pull from the stash and do a row a month!! My own BOM!!

The pattern is "Seasons in a Row" by Sandy Brawner of Quilt Country. I had already put it on the counter when Jane told me she saw the quilt at market and it was just adorable.

On the health front, I'm feeling so much better. I had a visit with my new family physician yesterday and I really like him. The hospital doctor was kind enough to find a new doctor for me since mine retired last month, and then called him and filled him in on what I was going through. Before my appointment yesterday, my new doctor had pulled the hospital records and was all ready for me. We had a few good laughs and I think it's a good fit. He told me he wanted me to wait two weeks after I finish the antibiotics before resuming my dental work. Well, today the endodontist called to check on me, and he disagreed with that. He wants to do the work now while I'm still full of antibiotics. I'm going to let those two battle it out! They're supposed to talk tomorrow. I don't think in my whole life I've had so many doctors communicating about me. Geez, I feel special! ROFLOL Oh, as an aside, I lost 11 pounds on the liquid diet, but it's certainly not a diet I'd recommend! LOL

This week has seemed really long to me, I think because I was so sick last week and slept away most of it. One more day to get through.

Jane and I are going to see the Nutcracker Ballet in the middle of December. We're both really excited about that! I can't wait. I danced in the Nutcracker for maybe 10 years when I was a kid. I always thought it was magical!

What else? Oh, yeah, the garage. This weekend I start weeding it out. I'm NOT looking forward to that!

And did all of you go to to check out Miss Emma crawling? I can't believe she's already old enough to do that! Totally adorable! I tried to 'dibby' her, but Kimberly wouldn't let me!! :) :)

And those two BOMs I blogged about last time, they don't start until next year. So if I get a running start on stashing busting before those start .... I'm just saying ....

That's it for tonight. A blog about a whole lot of nothing, with a little lagniappe thrown in for good measure!


~ Getting well
~ Excitement about stash busting
~ Getting in the mood for Christmas
~ Crawling babies!

I have got to get over to Gingers. I hear such good things about that shop. Plus it has OUR Jane there!! I was so excited to run into her at JoAnns.
Glad your feeling better. And did I read you lost 11 pounds?? I'm going in for dental work asap!!!!

So glad to hear that you're feeling better and have a plan for making some headway with the stash. Glad the doctors will get together and make a decision on what's best for you. Take care of yourself!

I'm glad you're feeling better, and an 11 pound weight loss to boot! Wow! I am going to have to remember to tell my bosses I need to leave early next week so I can make it to the applique group by 6:00, and we'll finally get to meet up! Is Jane going to be there too?

That's funny. I wish I only had FQs. I only have a few larger cuts of fabric and THOSE are the ones I am always trying to get rid of! ;) Everyone's different! I've vowed to only buy FQs if I am just buying it for stash enhancement.

Glad you are better. And if you were saying...the boms at the Fat Quarter Shop don't start until next year, and if you were saying...that's a long time from now and surely you'll time to do them by then, if you were saying, lol.

I am SO glad to hear you are feeling better - I've been wondering how you are. I don't know about the liquid diet, but you gotta do what you gotta do, and losing weight instead of gaining this time of year is really something.
That pattern is so cute, and such a great pattern for using stash! Good for you!!
Emma is adorable, isn't she?
