Happy New Year!

I'm a little late to be posting for the new year, but I guess better late than never.  It seems like I NEVER have time to blog anymore but I see that many of my fellow bloggers are having longer gaps between posts, too so I will just blog when I can.

We got to take our 3 grandsons to Silver Dollar City near Branson, MO right before Christmas.  I could write a novel (a tragic novel) about the number of times we've  attempted to go at Christmas time to see the lights.  Some would call it comical.  Well, we finally did it!

We've attempted to go so many times that our family now refers to Silver Dollar City as "that place that shall remained unmentioned".  We made it through the day and arrived back in Springfield where we were spending the night with Tim's dad and stepmom.  I immediately knew something was wrong when I noticed I was freezing and that my hands were shaking uncontrollably.  After a very long night in the bathroom, I ended up in the ER the next day with a bad case of CDif (ALL cases of CDif are bad!!). This is the third time in 10 years that I've had this colon infection.  I'm still dealing with it but feeling much better now,  just hoping and praying it stays away for good!  It's very hard to get rid of!

Anyway, I ended 2015 having reached a goal of losing 30 pounds.  I started Weight Watchers on June 30 and reached my goal weight by Dec. 1.  The CDif just helped me maintain it and lose a few more pounds.  Haha.  ( CDif is NOT a recommended weight loss plan!)

In my last blog post I told you that my big appliqué project was done and was with my quilter, Donna T. 
She started quilting it last weekend and has been sending me updates.  Today, she tells me she has all the background and borders done and is starting the quilting on the appliqué pieces.  Here's a little peek.
She told me that since my appliqué is very random she decided to do the quilting very random, too. I'm so glad I have a quilter I can trust!  I'm so happy with what she's done so far!  

Until next time........which I hope is not months from now!
