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.

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.

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

How are you doing, Karla? I have been pretty busy. I had been practicing for two 5k. We finally finish both of them. We have another one in December. I hope you are feeling much better. How is quilting going? What is your latest project? I haven't forgotten you. I still pray for you and your family. I hope to hear good news from you. emoticon

I just found your question on my red lily picture. Yes, you can use it for dye. Pluck the flower as it's aging and at its juiciest when crushed. put as many flowers as you can gather into fine woven cheesecloth or loose linen and tie it up with a rubber band. Boil it in a large pot...remember the less water and more flowers the darker the dye. Use it to dye 100% cotton material ...it needs to be set with either a commercial product or vinegar mix. I also use walnut hulls and shells, pokeberries, (or any vegetation that colors my fingers when I mash it). These are not stable dyes and I don't use them for anything other than artsy items that will not be used/handled on a daily basis. I have not tried them on yarn...but think that they might do better absorbing into wool than woven materials. Experiment. I still have a quilt that I made for a fiber project back in the 70's. Instructor loved it...very earthy, Have fun...Keep Sparkin'!!!
