Ivig drama

In May, I got my blood drawn on Monday. I didn't get the results until Wednesday. They were 53K. I got them drawn again on Thrusday. they were 34k. We decided that since they were trending down and it was Thrusday, that I would go up to ABQ that night and have IVIG at 8am on Friday.

These are my pre-meds so I don't have a reaction, or slow it down if I do.
IV and quilting the binding on the red/pink quilt.

My view....ABQ's mountains

Doctor's note for Chris. We love Dr. Quintana! I'm so glad she had me stay the night becuase its so much more comforting to know that a hosptial that can handle me in five minutes away, not 15 minutes to a helicopter ride.

We were driving up to Ruidoso to pick up Ben from the Ford dealership. Melissa texted me and said get on Pinterest for a Live pin chat. I didn't know what I was suppose to do but listened. It was easy to figure out...just answer the questions in the comments on the pins. Craftsy people then took everyone that commented and randomly picked a person....ME!!! I won $100 to Amazon!! Awesomeness! I bought quilting books, clover pins and more bobbins! Sooo fun!

Thanks Craftsy!

I have been waiting to buy these boots. They have been on backorder FOREVER! I finally bought them and LOVE them!! They are 8.5 which is weird because I usually wear 9 in regular shoes but hey, I don't care. They are wonderful.

Yup I have a monkey in my house.
Of course I was standing right now and the burn was off. I have since put a towel between the drawer and oven door so he can no longer do this!!

Pink and red quilt

This is a bunch of bee blocks I've put together. I received a class from Ann, on craftsy about free motion quilting. I got to thinking that if Ann can be brave and do it, I can too! 
So I decided to put this sampler together and try out a different design in each white part of the blocks. It was really a lot of fun and I learned lots from just trying things out. 
I will stitch in the ditch on the blocks that don't have white in them.
