been gone for a bit.. but been very busy... we decided to re-finance the house and have been working on doing a bit of changes in it... just had the carpet taken out of the living room and our bedroom and replace it with a wood-look tile... it's gorgeous!!... i love it... but.. what a mess and it took 3 full days to do.. so needless to say my poor house was torn apart for more than a week..

was doing really great with my walking till.... i pulled my Achilles tendon on my left foot... OUCH!!.. that took a week to get back to normal but then the heat these last few weeks has been unbearable...  i mean hot.. like already over 80 at 7 in the morning with heat indexes approaching 90... i just can't do it then... i am sooooo looking forward to a bit of cooler weather so i can start walking again... i'm actually very surprized that i miss it.. lol..

however... my dr. was extremely pleased with my numbers this visit... i'm down 10 pounds and my A1C dropped from 7.2 to 6.4!!... woot woot!!..  now i just need to keep up the good work and see if i can get them a bit lower..

quilting wise... i'm doing ok.. i'm a bit ahead of the I Believe in Snowmen quilt.. (which is a good thing since our Vegas trip is coming up quick (like next week)..  and then a cruise with mom and my sister in October.. (mom was comped the room.. so we just couldn't pass it up!!... ).. 7 day cruise .. Eastern Caribbean..   i finally finished all the blocks for my swoon quilt.. just need to put the top together and find a border for it... and i've finished the top for my Thanksgiving table runner.. now to get up the courage to machine quilt it... :\ ..  and i'm finally getting the binding on my Tropical Skies quilt..

cross stitch wise... nothing... still no mojo... *sigh*..

anyway.. time for me to finish up my chores so i can get back to doing something fun..

happy stitching..
