Tuesday, January 24, 2012      11 comments

We just completed a block swap on our QL team. I made extra blocks to add among the swappers. Because I was in both swaps I would get a 24 from the swap and then kept one of the extra blocks for a total of 25. Sashing has been my savior when ... Read more

In 2011 I did 414 miles down from 602 the previous year BUT - I will say having my hip replaced did factor into that decrease. I also logged 13,325 minutes that's about 1,110 minutes a month or roughly 36 minutes a day. So now onto 2... Read more
