WIP Wednesday

So I am writing this on the weekend. Am I the only one who was trying to do posts on Tuesday night? The light was bad, I did not have everything out, scrambling. I am such a bad forward thinker.

Enter the new me!!! Wonder how long it will last?

The baby quilt is quilted and the binding sewn on. I have never sewn so badly in my entire life. I did not tape my quilt back down thinking I could get away with smoothing and more smoothing. Not so! I have puckers in the back, the sides are not even, and I kept going. I kept telling myself a baby quilt that is finished is WAY better than one thrown in the corner in disgust. Besides now I get to do my favourite part, hand sewing the binding! Yeah!!!

No I am not showing a picture of the back!

Placemats - no movement

9 square blocks - nothing

On a personal note. I have been to my naturopath. And have been told, no more wheat. Now this is not a new thing, I have been gluten free and dairy free for years. No big deal. However, with grief came HUGE CRAVINGS for McDonalds Egg McMuffins! Yummy!!! Bad for me on so many levels, the wheat, the cheese, the nitrates and nitrites. Now I knew this was coming, I have swelling of the feet and lower legs, pitting edema actually, swelling in the knee, that makes yoga a real challenge, pain in my hip so I can'g lie on that side, and pain in my neck. The only bonus is I can still hold a needle. When I started down this wheat free path my hands were so sore I could not hold a pencil.

Ahh, to concentrate on the little things. Isn't life grand.


  1. I know that 'just get it done' feeling. Hand sewing the binding is one of my favorite parts too. I hope you feel better soon and don't beat yourself up too much.

  2. So sorry you have such health problems. I myself was diagnosed with celiac disease more than 20 years ago, and had been so sick that thankfully cheating was never an issue. Hang in there, you will feel better.
