Happy Memorial Day

A few days early but the weekend is here.

We went camping last weekend...another baseball tournament.  But guess what no pictures.  Spent the majority of the weekend walking.  My daughters and myself have fitbits and they keep challenging me.  I always loose but my step count keep rising.

I have a few things to show you.

I finished 2 of the 4 1857 Sampler blocks for May...2 to go and the month is almost over.

This is the May block for the Sugar Club BOM.  Paper pieced.

Last months Westering Women block.  I'm hoping to get the current block done this weekend.

I don't know about where you are but here it is soooo hot.  When we were camping Sunday was so cold we had to put the furnace on in the camper to take the chill off.  We came home Monday and the temps were the complete opposite.

Speaking of sugar levels had been in the 300's so I went to the doctors.  They gave me a few explanations.  One was that I was walking so much that my body was breaking down fat which released sugar into my system.  The second reason is I wasn't eating correctly.  I now am eating every 2 hours.  Smaller meals and 3 snacks a day.  And guess is working.  My sugar levels are now under 200 and getting lower everyday.  I also lost 3 lbs.  Bonus!!!

I have finished my Gweenie Inspired Medallion center block.  I can't wait to show it to everyone.  If you look in the upper right had side of my blog you will see a button that Lori designed for us.  If you are joining in on the fun go to her Blog - Humble Quilts and grab the button.  Soon the center blocks and the design for the next round will be revealed.  

I also joined in one the "Front Porch"  quilt sew along with Lori.  Finished my block while camping.  Hope you are joining in too.

Thanks for stopping by and have a safe and happy Memorial Day.

Hugs, Cathy

The Sugar Club block does not look particularly easy to put together. Yours looks very well done.
I have my block done for the Gwennie inspired sew-along. It will be interesting to see what everyone starts with.

Gorgeous blocks! The weather, this spring, has been wacky everywhere, it seems.

Good luck on getting your blood sugar back to where it needs to be.

Great blocks for all of you current projects. Also who would have thought walking would cause issues. Hahaha. Glad you got it figured out.

Was the May Sugar Club block difficult? Looks tricky to me.
Can't believe all of the SALs and BOMs you keep up on. That would raise my blood sugar! : )
Congrats on getting that under control and losing weight in the process.
