Good Day Sunshine!

It is Glorious to be back at our home away! Even if for just 5 days. Quick trip down and back is giving us some relief from the cold at home, and a chance to rejuvenate.

As for me, since starting a steroid cream on my joints I am feeling much better. Swelling is down and lumps are receding. Most important, the severe pain is going away. Tylenol and this cream are my best friends right now! Just wish I had answers to why/how/when this Osteoarthritis decided to choose me. Hopefully this is a one off and it will visit no more!

Knitting happened on the 2 hour flight down. And it just might be happening right now. You can only play games on your phone, sun bathe, puzzle play, or read, so much in a 24 hour day.

Afghan Square #10 started. It is a repeat of this pattern. 

Hope all is well at your end. May your day be blessed!

Bag It #20

I am playing along with Elm Street Quilts Bag It 2017. This is bag 20/23.


I used the same fabrics when I made this Open Wide Bag for Diva Girl. I didn’t have any of the teal left so grabbed some aqua to use for the zipper facings. Just needed a pop of color since the inside, outside, and binding used the same color of fabric. Of course I added a contrast snap for another pop of color!

The end is near!! 3 more bags and I am done. Even though I already have ideas for more bags to come, I am not pushing for them to be Christmas present once I get the last items sewn for gift giving. It will just be a sew when the whim takes me. I have a Christmas wallhanging I want to get to!! And maybe a table runner for winter. Plus a Christmas wallhanging I just need to bind and it will be done already.
