it's been a week

I couldn't believe it when I looked at my last post and it's been a week since my last post. The weather improved and I've been doing a little gardening each day. I imagine you are tired of seeing pictures of my meager little plots, so I won't show that until the plants at least fill out.
On the weekend I went golfing with my husband and I must say I really am improving! I actually got bogies (I'm learning the terms) which is one over par on 2 holes. I tied those with Gord. Then to top it off, I out drove him on 2 holes. He teased that he wasn't giving me any more tips. I think he is just happy to have a golf partner though.This is all quite new and exciting for me. The picture below is a view from the tee of the par three.

I've been slowly putting together the cobblestone blocks of the Kaffe Fassett prints. Here are the first 4 rows. The next two are pinned together and then there is just one more after  that.
 Today, it was raining again, and so I sat and did some hand work. I got this little piece of a view of our mill that has just been torn down sewn onto the canvas. Originally, I had a zig zagged edge, but I didn't like it so I added the binding and I am happier with it now.
Tomorrow, I'm going to be feeling a teensy bit (well maybe a little more) sorry for my self, as I have made the decision to stay home form the girls quilting retreat. There would have been 13 women at the camp (it is large and very nice with even a dishwasher!). I  never know when I'll have a good or bad day and I have a very hard time to sleep anywhere else but home. When I don't sleep, I usually have a headache and feel nauseous all day. I will be thinking of my friends all day, but I'm going to try to keep busy and try to enjoy my day at  the same time. I might make rhubarb strawberry jam in the morning.

Well, I hope you manage to enjoy your day. It's a shame when our health prevents us from doing the things we love. Make the's fun and you'll feel better. I made rhubarb strawberry for the first time this year and I'm never going back to just plain strawberry. :) Congratulations on learning to golf. I've just never been able to master it. But it looks fun and the golf courses are always so beautiful!
