A Little New Fabric

Mom had her doctor's appointment this morning at 10:15am. It was an hour drive so we left about 9am. I hate riding in the car that long, makes my legs hurt. But this trip was for mom so I tried not to complain, I know she was in pain too. Still don't know anything more than we did before, still waiting for them to schedule the MRI. He said he could tell more about what needed to be done after he gets that. Also her BP was 162/120!!! I could not believe that they let her walk out of that office and it that high. She is on BP medication, they said it could be from the pain but still that is just too high. She said she didn't really feel bad but I was freaking out over it.

After her appointment we stopped by The Golden Corral to eat. Let's just say we ate toooooo much. I was miserable. Right beside the the Golden Corral was Hobby Lobby! So we HOBBLED in there for a minute. Neither one of us felt like looking around much, so we just went straight to the fabric. I picked up a few pieces. These are all 1/2 yard cuts just to add to the stash, except for the Thomas The Train fabric. It is for my 2yr old nephew, thought I might try to make him a quilt with it, he likes Thomas. I have some solid red fabric that I thought I would just add a border to the train fabric and call it done. Nothing special, but didn't really want to cut up the trains since he likes them so well.
I also bought a couple of yards of this fabric! I fell in love with it when I saw it. Thought it would make a nice Christmas time throw for the kids. I will probably just add a border to it and call it done too. I really don't want to cut this up either.
So we made it back home and I went straight to bed around 2:30pm and did not get back up until 6:30pm, I was pooped and my legs were throbbing.
Not doing anything tonight, don't even feel like sewing so I will probably head back to bed in a little while...

That horse fabric should not be cut up...too many wonderful scenes in it. I agree just add border, quilt it and call it quilts.

I love the horse fabric as well. Much too pretty to cut up. I have some of the Thomas fabric and hope to make a quilt from it.

Gorgeous fabrics.
Don't stress out about your mum's blood pressure. I would kill for mine to be as low as that. My record was 235/190 one day. And yes I'm on medication too
