Tonight I finished up the new Pinafore Bag by Me & My Sister Designs. using their newest fabric line called Spring Fever.
I also dug through my stash to cut some 2-1/2” strips for a quilt I’m looking to make for a friend of mine. Tomorrow I just need to grab some orange batiks and I can start sewing. (Can I just say that the color Orange is more outside of my comfort zone than Kaffe Fasset Fabrics??) I’m going to be making a pattern called Keyholes which is in Anka’s Treasures book “On A Roll Again.” It calls for a jelly roll but I decided to just cut my own from my stash. I think it’s going to turn out great.
Earlier this week I went to Urgent Care for a spider bite that occurred 2 weeks ago. I am now on gigantic antibiotics that I need to take 3 times a day for the next 10 days. Am secretly freaking out hoping like heck that I'm not allergic to them. There's very few antibiotics I can take and I've never been on this particular one. When you start to think your spider bite could possibly be a blood clot it's definitely time to go see an MD. It took less time to drive to the Urgent Care, fill out the paper work, wait and see the MD, have dinner, fill the script and drive home than it took for us to figure out where in bloody heck we could go see someone that was covered under our current crazy health insurance situation. All I've got to say is it's a good thing we've only needed to refill prescriptions in the past few months because anything more than that requires major hoop jumping. April 1st can't come soon enough - we'll finally be on Mike's health insurance...where we can actually go see our normal doctors.
And finally, happiness… Back in December I told my husband that the only thing I wanted for my Birthday was to get my wedding ring re-sized. Well, life got in the way and I first got around to dropping it off at the jeweler last week. It was surprisingly a lot less expensive than I anticipated..so double happiness! I picked it up tonight and it gave me such joy to have it back on my hand…it’s been about 3 years since I’ve worn it. =(
AND…I’m just about caught up on my Olympics watching. I think I sped through three nights worth of coverage in just a few hours tonight while I sewed.
