I Love Quilts!

My hobby is a sitting thing, and my job is sedentary too. I just had to take action, put in the effort, and get results that I could be proud of. I want to be healthy and strong with an enthusiasm for life that will take me anywhere I decide to go. I am happy, engaged in life and satisfied with the journey. Are we sharing this path together? Come along and let's encourage each other.

SparkPoints: 16,577

Fitness Minutes: 13,826

My Goals:
To become more healthy so I can enjoy life more. I'm swimming laps almost every day and getting stronger. Oh I just love summer I also walk and workout on the Wii and with weights. I'm sure there's benefit to all this over time : - )

My Program:
I'm working out on the treadmill when the weather is cold and I swim when it's warm outside. I'm eating healthy and watching everything I eat pretty closely. I'm also planning on staying healthy spiritually, emotionally and physically for the long haul.

Personal Information:
I live in the southeastern part of Washington state.
I'm married and have 2 grown children and 2 grandchildren that I don't see enough of because they live so far that it's not easy to get together. I''m working on making a special quilt for each member of my family. It might be a life long goal. It's been going slow because I've been hand quilting almost everything, but I'm learning to machine quilt and one by one I'll get there!

Other Information:
I love to collect things. I currently have a collection of blue & white china plates of all sizes and shapes, a teddy bear collection, a thimble collection, a collection of Dicken's Village houses, a separate collection of quilt shops, and a small collection of antique sewing machines (treadle or otherwise). And of course the quilt collection. DH says it's too much, please say it isn't so LoL.

Hi Karla. I didn't get the e mail about your comment on my page but today was looking at my friend feed. Welcome back and glad to heat that you are getting a bit better from the health issues. I've been faithfully tracking nutrition on my iPod and only gained a half pound over the holidays.We had a nive etime and all the kids enjoyed their gifts. It's been super cold( high's below zero) and we have a couple of feet of snow on the ground, so I've been walking inside. Wishing you a healthy and happy 2014. Hope to keep more in touch. Hugs, Pam

Glad to hear from you, Karla! I, too, have been a bit remiss. I try to log in and spin, glance over the friends feed, and get back to my projects. I haven't taken time to read comments, or write any for quite a while. I don't know when we "talked" last, but I have been really busy since my vacation with my Mom and sister in September. We took a bus tour to Georgia and the Carolinas. Had a great time. Then I tore into my projects for Christmas gifts, making about 100 things, some simple, doll cloths,a few ornaments, etc, but making my total for the year 171. I had all my kids and grandkids and Mom all here for Thanksgiving , some families for up to a week. Then by the time I got beds done up, and gifts wrapped, etc, Tom's kids/families showed up for a week or so. Then I had one son's family here for their Christmas on New Year's . We also celebrated our anniversary on the 30th, and my birthday yesterday. I finally fell into bed last night exhausted, and didn't wake up until 11 AM this morning. I'm getting psyched to really do the weight loss better this year.I haven't reset my ticker, but I had gained about 15 pounds back. Several relatives and I are having a weight loss contest 'til Easter. We have a total of $400. in the kitty, so we're all determined to win! LOL What health issues do you have going on now? Still related to your surgery in the spring? Gosh that must be frustrating. I hope it is not too serious.I'll keep you in my prayers, too. I hope you had a great Christmas and have a Happy New Year! Keep in touch, girl!
Pam

Thanks Karla for your sweet comment on my photo. I hope things are working out for you. I will be praying as always. Yes you can do all things through Christ which strengthens you. HE created the heavens and the earth. HE loves us and can help us work through any situation in our life. Faith is the most powerful weapon the LORD has given us. Ephesian 6. Put on the whole armor of GOD so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. You have already won the victory of what ever comes you way. Christ won victory over all things in HIS death, burial, and resurrection. HE won the victory for HIS children. Don't be afraid or have anxiety over anything. GOD is guiding you through the scary things. HE is picking you up when you stubble or fall. HE is holding you in HIS hand when you feel lonely. Embrace HIS love and mercy. HE is right there for you. emoticon

Thank you for the Spark goodie! I'm so glad to hear from you. I have been very busy sewing a few gifts and making our christmas cards. And of course taking care of my family too.

I'm sorry to hear about your ongoing health issues, it can be so draining to be sick. I will pray for you. I wish there was more I could do but Everything is possible through Him.

What are your plans for the rest of Advent? We are keeping our house decorations to a minimum for the first 3 weeks, so we can concentrate on the Jesse tree, and the empty manger. Bella is getting very excited even still. We don't watch any TV, and haven't for a few years so the commercials don't get our kids asking for a lot of Things.

I hope you have a better week, Thank you again!
Annette
