This blog is about my attempts at quilting and other things in life that may get in the way of those attempts

My doctor's office called about my test results for my cholestrol levels. I was not surprised how high they were but my Doctor was. She upped my dose of Lipitor but really it is not an "up" dose because I haven't been taking my Lipitor for about 2 years because I did not want to pay for them. But don't think I wouldn't spend that 45 per month on quilting.. There are heart issues every which way in my family so it was actually a stupid thing to do. Regardless, I quit smoking 4 months ago...so that will help..I am taking my Lipitor at the "upped" dose for 6 weeks and then I will get re-tested.... and since Oct 1st - four mornings a week I get to see this:
I joined the YMCA with my friend Trudy. This is usually what we see when we are LEAVING. We meet there at 6:00 am and we have started with swimming to help build our endurance and flex our muscles. This weekend I am going out to get me some cute workout clothes for the machines that we will start on next week. I am excited...Wonder how long that will last? Already I feel so much better..Who knew??
So when I am not hauling my fat ass in the pool I am working on this quilt:
I am so addicted to making these blocks. I made another 10 last night and I think I may have enough for a good size lap or twin. You can make this quilt too if you follow this tutorial http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2009/09/tutorial-double-hourglass-blocks-easy.html. She tells you to try one block first, and for me to get it to work I had to cut the square 7 5/8 x 7 5/8. But do try one..they are addicting.
