Sweet Dreams

My sleep study went well. Coincidentally, my study was on February 3, which marked one month smoke-free for me. I dont' know if it had anything to do with it, but the pressure settings on my C-Pap machine were lowered, AND I didn't need supplemental oxygen. I've used oxygen at night for 2 years because my blood oxygen levels took a nose dive when I sleep. Apparently, they stay in the normal range now, so I'm certainly happy about that!! I also got a new mask out of the deal, which I like much better than the one I've been using!!

Haven't had much time to sew, though. All I managed to get to this week was some mending for my daughter-in-law, and I worked on the mini-quilt for the February swap for Swap Til U Drop (STUD). The theme this month is paper piecing. I've only done a little bit of paper piecing and they were simple blocks, so I chose something a little more challenging this time. It's going well, but I have to really pay attention to what I'm doing. I'm itching to get back in the sewing room. This is going to be a realy busy week with work, so I don't know how much crafting time I'll have.

On a cheery note, we had record high temperatures yesterday and are looking for more of the same today. The sun is shining, a lot of our snow has melted and my animals are enjoying being able to be outdoors for more than a few minutes. More cold weather and snow is on the way, but this has been a nice and much needed break from winter!!

Hope you all have a great day!!
