A few projects and update
I've been busy sewing lately ~ made this piece for my journal quilt group. The word was spring and there was no technique so I made this. It's a take off from Charley Harper's art, which I adore. It's also all freehand cut and appliqued on with the machine. Really love how it turned out. I'll be doing some quilting on it and then make it into a pillow for my bed.
This next project is rather a large one. A friend and I are doing it together and I'm enjoying how it's turning out! It's the Single Girl quilt and I just happened to have a bunch of fat quarters of Denyse Schmidts! Really like it quite a lot. It's going to be huge! Each block is about 18" and there's 16 of them. Very grateful that my friend Kathie is doing this with me, she's a fabulous quilter and knows what she's doing!
Now on to the weight thing.
I've been exercising everyday and managed to get to the gym on Friday. My daughter-in-law and son went with me for support (they exercised too) and I also went on Saturday and today! I've also been doing a video by Jillian Michaels everyday. It's amazing how just a little exercise can make you feel so much better.
I've also changed what I'm eating and how much water I'm drinking. I've noticed a few changes, but know that I've got a ways to go. The thing is, I'm doing something about it instead of just lying on the couch feeling sorry for myself.
Hope all are having a glorious day (the sun is shining here!) and that you are doing what you love!
