UPDATE

Ya know a person can lay around so much before they start to vegetate lol...well today i am forcing myself to keep going through the arthritis pain.....

i look around and see all the quilty things i want to work on and havent felt like it since my health problem and i start to worry if i will get them done....

well i think its best to work on them instead of worrying about it...so i am going to do my best to do just that....

i am out of pics to show ya what i been up to but of late not been up to too much so bear with me on that note....i could take pics of the stack of gfg blocks ready for setting but that isn't interesting...much more interesting to show quilt after i get row 8 done on both...which i will start very soon....its really rolling along...

i guess that is it for me catching you up on what is going on here....so now i gotta go to the kitchen and deal with the food and the salt and the cholesterol....such a life!.....more later....

PROGRESS IS MADE ON MODERN MAZE QUILT

Back when i was making the pastel 'maze' quilts i thought somewhere in time i would make one that was made with batiks with the same principle....so about a year ago i started drawing up a new pattern for one....you have seen the block in earlier posts and i have been working on it now and then....

i am almost done with the top...
i have been putting together sections in 9 square blocks (3x3) and have 2 more sections to go....i think i have enough 6 inch blocks to finish...then decide if it will be another row of 3 wider and longer....
here is a closeup of a 9 square section.

before i do that though i want to work on my grandsons quilt i started before my health problem....i have the back, gotta wash/iron it yet then sandwich and i can quilt....i hope i can do a good job on it on my little machine....then also quilt those pinwheel runners too....

yesterday i mostly spent in the kitchen trying to cook things that didn't have salt...that is one losing battle...i have doc appointment next wednesday so i thought cook reg but watch the salt very carefully and see if i am doing ok at the docs....i havent cooked with salt for years...my down fall is eating out!...i will have to get used to using unsalted products as i find them....i keep forgetting i can season them later with salt substitute....

a very good salt substitute is called "no salt"....i swear by it!

time for lunch so gotta run...more later....

ANOTHER PINWHEEL RUNNER

Before i got sick i had pictures to post so here is one of another pinwheel runner
 i hope to machine quilt soon....i am aiming to feel like it by next week...i have been resting as much as possible and its doing good except for the arthritis without meds....that is what is bugging me...hurts too much to do a lot...when i go back to doc i hope he can give me some....

i feel like i have gotten behind in quilting right now....the quilt ladies are meeting tomorrow but i am not going this time...i need a little more time....i tried going to store close by other night for cereal and thought i would never get back home...i was just all wore out.....

well off to the shower and then will be time to think about good night....hope yu all have a great week....more later....
