This is the back of the Minions quilt - hope you can see the goggles pattern - was cute to stitch!
I also cut more fabrics while I was in the basement this morning.  I have a lot more to cut before next Thursday, so I may be spending a lot of time in the basement the rest of this week and first of next.
I ran a couple of errands this afternoon and then took my happy butt over to Baumann Park in Cherry Valley and walked the path around the lake.  I tend to walk fairly fast, so it was a good workout for me - and yes, I needed that!
I've been traveling in De-Nile for awhile and finally decided to face facts - I've gone from pre-diabetic to full blown diabetes and I need to get my numbers back down to normal.  So, there will be more walking going on here and I am counting my carbs again, like I should have been all along.  Hopefully along with the 30 pounds I need to lose, I'll also lose the higher blood sugar numbers.
Until next time...blessings.

Hi Joanne, I've gone from the pre-diabetic stage to the full blown as well. I've not been walking this summer as it's been soo hot so that will start up very soon and should help. I'm wondering by your statement of "counting carbs" you are actually keeping a number in mind to not exceed. I've been told no more than 45 carbs per meal, with 15 carb snacks in between. Is this anywhere near your goal? (I think that is from the American Diabetic Assoc.)
