Day 45 of Easter challenge

Friday, March 29, 2013

"Bootcamp: 7-Minute Arm Shaper with Dumbbells" emoticon Day 3 Week 2 of Bootcamp

With Good Friday - and me at my parents for the day - Cheese Pizza was on the menu - not the best nutrition wise but a little spoil once in awhile is not a bad thing.

Hit the grocery store so I can pick up the ingredients for Easter Sunday family dinner. Ended up buying macaroons - not a good thing as that became my dinner.

So today's nutrition score was not high. Although I stayed overall within my calories it was not with good choices.

Got my long awaited fabric for my One Block wonder quilt. The challenge of buying fabric over the internet is sometimes a gamble. Usually it pays off for me as I've been happy with my choices. But every once in awhile - not so good. It's very pretty fabric but does not match as well as I would like so I will put it aside and hit the fabric stores hoping for a better match. When you put so much time into making a quilt top - if it doesn't work - don't force it. No worries I'm sure I'll find a good use for it in the future.

Working on my paper piece project - and I don't make too many paper piece projects. Its very time intensive. I forgot how many tiny pieces of cuttings are generated. I laugh at my quilting room floor - I think the vaccuum will be tested during the duration of this project.

I have to finish up my taxes this week - The kids were finished last week and I just have to do the finishing touches on ours. Not sure why I'm procrastinating. I know - I'd rather be quilting. emoticon

DH has Argo on the plan for the evening.

One more day for the Easter challenge. I am psyched to have stuck with it. I am definitely feeling my biceps and triceps improving and its probably directly related to all the videos I've been doing.

    I saw a PBS program where the sewer saved all the 'cuttings, threads, and trimmings' from a bunch of projects, laid them out on a foundation cloth as flat as she could get them (but overlapped), put a piece of material over the whole thing that would dissolve if dampened and then started freestyle sewing with fancy thread.the result was a block that could be framed...or saved to put with other similar blocks to make a wall hanging or eventually a full quilt. Have fun
