Weekend walk and finish!


This has not been my best week, and I am sure there will be more of them, but I could use a break;) With everything that has been happening, I am just being for now and working on small projects and getting through the tougher moments, but I also have put things on the back burner.

I finally got my hair cut and she messed it up, it is all puffy, so I either have to go back and have her fix it or find a new hair cutting place. It seems every time I find someone who can do a decent hair cut, they disappear. I also have a broken tooth that I was supposed to get capped, but I put that on hold as well as making an appointment with a foot specialist since I broke my toe for the third time. And to top it off, I seem to have broken my index finger. No Idea how I did that, but the bone is sticking up, so guess I need to have that X-Rayed but I am using it and I cannot sew with a splint on it, so for now, it will have to wait, working on something for a birthday present for our choir director and want to finish it for Sunday. Hopefully I won't break anything else this week, lol.

And last but not least, Bean chewed my power cord in half. Luckily my old one works on this computer, so I can use that until I get a new one.

Saturday we went for a ride to the light house. I needed to get out and it was the perfect day to walk around and enjoy the fresh salt air.

Looking down towards the lighthouse.


Looking out to the ocean side, wonderful place to walk and relax while we enjoy the views.


Then we went to the other end of the island, to the old forts. There were lots of sailboats out, with the racing boats still in the harbor. You can see one of the Newport mansions behind the boats.


I also finished my second block from Theodora Cleave's free patterns. I am enjoying doing them, fun designs and they just make me happy to look at. I am still not sure wether I will make little quilts with each one, or a larger quilt, that I can decide on, later.

Oh my gosh, you've had quite a time of it lately! I'm glad you got outside and had some fun. You certainly deserve it (especially after our never-ending New England winter this year!). Hope you're feeling better in record time...

Your hair doesn't look poofy in the picture. Looks good.

Do I need to send you some bubble wrap? something to protect you from breaking more bones...I always have trouble with hair cuts...love the little block you've stitched...they make me smile too

Please be careful. I know your brain probably has not adapted to all the recent changes. I know that oh too well. And I know about having trouble finding and keeping your favorite stylist. Must be a universal problem. Hang in there, girlfriend !!

Debbie, that's why I started cutting my own hair, lol. EVERY single gal I liked moved. I can't believe that you've broken a tooth, a toe and a finger - I agree with Kelley, we need to send you some bubble wrap!

Glad you got Bean out for a lovely walk, sounds like he needed it too - naughty puppy chewing your cord! Love your stitchery!

What a run of bad luck this week. Maybe you just popped your finger out of joint.

Louise SS said...

Hang in there! Pretty stitchery! And a Swedish flag on the sail boat! :)
