Swoon Doll Quilts

I finally pieced these things and now they are sitting in the spare bedroom with the basting spray drying. Note I realized after basting the second one that I had forgotten to add a border to it. sigh I’ll have to figure out a way to make it more special…but I have no idea what. Anyway, here’re these two beauties and I’m going to start cutting out my Tilly Swoon in a minute! Yippee!

Bestill my beating heart…

Isn’t it beautiful?!? Oh, it’s so very nice. Woot. Makes ironing not so bad. Okay, okay, so what if it’s just a new ironing board cover? It’s on my ironing board and I love it! It’s the little things…

No more running

Well, not ever, but at least until I get to the doctor and get a handle on what’s happening with me. Sam says I’m just getting old (slap), but I don’t think it’s quite that simple. First anemia for 3rd month in a row and now low blood sugar. Yuck. Either alone would be doable, but combined, they make me a bit nervous about running alone. Since I don’t have a running partner, I’m going to stay inside until the doctor. *pout*

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood!

I went out for a run today…I’ve been a bit nervous about going out along after my stalker last week, but I got brave and did W4D1 of C210K today. I also took a new route, so it wouldn’t be boring. My runtastic app is about to kill me. It measures really well for the first 1-2 miles, but after that, I start getting 1/2-mi updates every 2 or 3 minutes…no matter whether I’m walking or running. All of a sudden, my 3-mi is miraculously 5-mi! Wow! I’m so fast I didn’t even know I was running! [sarcasm alert] Anyway, I managed to get in a nice 4.5-mi run and it felt great.
