Things in my world ususally go pretty smooth, but this week I had several challenges. The patient advocacy department for the health care system I am in did a great job of helping me out. I needed to change my doctor. Too many communication issues and foul ups including my prescription. All of this was stressing me out. So after many phone calls including three to my health insurance provider, I got lined up with a new doctor and my prescription refill showed up yesterday so now we are good. I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders! Throw in a head cold and it was a rough week. Last night I did get one of the smaller t-shirt pieces quilted.

Somehow I roped into two new projects for a woman I work with. The first project will be new placemats. She said she just couldn't find any decent placemats and brought me a very worn one that she liked. I dug thru my stash to come up with something she might like and was successful on the first try! Here are the fabrics for the placemats.

Yesterday and this morning at work I have spent some time redoing the plants. It was a lot more work than I thought! I shopped for plants and potting soil on Tuesday at one of the local greenhouses. I could have spent a lot of money there! I didn't have enough potting soil and I needed three more pots so I stopped at a big box store this morning at 6:30 am. So here is the parade of before and after pictures. People have noticed and like the refresh. Conference room entrance. These were just ratty!

I didn't get any quilting done on the Harley quilt last night. I was tired, But I have to post something on this historic day so here is what I came up with. I did get the f and e stitched on the cross stitch piece.

I stayed home all weekend and just went outside long enough to get the mail. The Harley quilt - I got two shirts quilted - the yellow ones - so I am 6% done with the quilting. Hardly enough to even bother calculating! LOL!!!

I had a hair appointment after work so by the time I got home it was almost 6:30 which didn't leave me any time to pin baste. So for today's post I will show you where I am on my cross stitch. Here is my marked up chart as of a couple days ago.

I didn't have much time to pin baste the Harley quilt last evening. I had an eye doctor appointment in the afternoon and didn't get home until a little after six. My eye doctor is where I use to live. It takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes to drive there, but I am not interested in changing. I hadn't been to the eye doctor in a very long time and I needed to get my glasses' prescription changed. On my way back, I stopped at the meat market and got some ground steak for chili. Can you believe the price of meat these days?! I did get a little bit more pin basted on the Harley quilt. Every little bit helps!

Saturday I received a big box of Harley t-shirts. There must have been 20 shirts, but only one light colored shirt. That was all I needed so I got to work. By Sunday I had the top sewn and I started to pin baste the quilt top. I circled the spot where the dark red t-shirt was and substituted the light gray shirt. Why did I make this quilt so big?! LOL!! My table is 96" x 96" and the quilt top almost covers the entire top.

I got a few more blocks out of the scraps made. They are now pressed and trimmed. The pink ones are 5 1/2" and the brown, green, tan ones are trimmed to 6 1/2". There is not enough for a quilt yet, but I still have more scraps to make into blocks.
