I got busy and cut up 10" squares in solids for next weeks' guild project. I'm hoping they go with the other cake layers that I got. Those are conversation prints with "junk" food on them.
Also got out and took a short walk before it decided to snow here.

Hope all had a great day!

Lyn,
Just smile and continue to give to your d-in-l. I can't tell you how many things I made or bought for her and I know a lot of them never got used but now I can't give or make her anything as she passed this summer from a long battle with cancer. So, even though you don't think things are getting used, I'm sure she still holds them in a special place in her heart. Life is to short to worry about it. I pretty much learned to switch to things I was sure she'd use. Linda

I have been a quilting maniac with the tablecloth I am finishing for my DIL. I am stitching around each hexagon. I need to secure all the seams since it is supposed to be used, thus washed, and I cannot imagine all that hand sewing will be secure enough without additional support. I say 'supposed to be used', but who knows if she will actually use it, as much of the nice things I have made her end up set aside because they are too 'nice' to use. The whole-cloth baby quilt I made is in pristine condition.
emoticon I could just scream!

My eating is on track and no problems. Except I have to force myself to remember to eat. I have not had an appetite since Nov 10th when I had that horrible pain at night which prompted a doctor's visit. So it is working out to my favor, not being hungry helps break the sugar habit. And I now no longer eat after 7 at night, a battle I have had for decades, won in one day. Pain is a great incentive for change.

Got through Christmas without messing up on my goals real bad. A new day today.

On Wednesday I finished a table runner I had started on Sunday. This also used up another piece out of my stash! And my daughter's mother in law loved it!

Started knitting scarves for my charity donations again on Tuesday afternoon.

Most of all, get to see my son on Friday for our family Christmas on Saturday!

Hope all of you had a good Christmas!

“Last night I was re-elected as guild president for the next year. Glutton for punishment I guess but I have really enjoyed being the president this year and I already have thoughts and goals for next year. I"ve only been a member for 3 years and the second year I was vice president. And then Pres and then Pres again. Since my serving, we have moved the guild meetings to a new and bigger location, investigated non profit status from the IRS (decided against it) wrote and established by-laws which they never had, brought mbrshp up to 72, held two workshops and one sit and sew and had fun! I also established a monthly President's challenge where I gave everyone a free internet quilt pattern and fabric cut from our stash to make a block. The blocks were then put together by a volunteer for a charity quilt. We, as a guild, made 110 quilts, 134 pillowcases and 120+ stockings. We supported about 8 local charities with them. We also made and donated at least 5 Quilts of Valor. I hope to do more next year. It was an amazing year and I am looking forward to next year.

I am kind of an introvert and shy and insecure at times and thought that I would probabaly really be hurt if I wasn't re-elected. I had many ladies come up to me last night and congratulated me. One in particular whom I had a bit of a tiff with the previous year, came and apologized and we both hugged and made amends. All in all, it was a great night.”

There is a Calorie Cycling Sparkteam that I joined about a month ago. They have a link to a calculator, and it figures up for you how many calories you should eat to lose weight. Then, it breaks it down to something like 4 days of very low calories, then a high calorie day, then a low calorie day and then a medium calorie day. The whole concept is to trick your body into losing fat. Our bodies can be really stubborn sometimes and hold on to the fat like it is in starvation mode. It seem to work for most of us. I think if it doesn't work, then the person will lower their calorie intake because maybe the calculator is just a guide.

If you're interested, we'd love to have you on the team.

This Thursday we are heading to NC to see our younger son and his family and go to the FSU/Wake Forest game. We always try to go up each football season to see a game as there are three NC teams that FSU plays. We are staying with friends in Atlanta on Thursday night and yesterday I remembered I had promised her a quilt for her charity. This mroning I was throwing together the top which was a panel and 3 borders, finished it and it is now at the long armer who said she will have it ready for me to take and work on the binding in the car. Guess I'll have a quilt for her! Carol

This wasn't today, but it was a few days ago: I finally put the top and bottom borders on a fall leaf/pumpkin quilt top. I'd run out of border fabric, so I needed to piece four corner leaf blocks. It looks great, and my cat is enjoying lounging on it as I admire it. I'd quilt it soon, but I thought I'd probably better dig out the Christmas projects since Christmas is just a bit over two months away!

I started a paper(foundation) piecing project last night. It's not as scary as I thought it would be. The block I am doing is a star and each piece is 1/8th of the block. I'm not happy with what I did last night because of the fabric selections I made. I think I'll change one of the fabrics on the next section and see if I like it better.

Hi - I'm a newbie here.

I lost a pound today on my weigh-in. Was thrilled because I have been on a plateau for 4 months. Just kept tweaking my nutritional tracker until I came up with what works for me.

Just thought I'd say 'hi' everyone.

I got into some slacks that I wasn't able to get into for years and now they are a little snug but they finally fit. Happy, happy camper.

My daughter gave me a quilt journal a few years ago. I have the pictures of the quilts I have made on the computer. I just have to get them printed and put in the journal -- a project for the future:)

I gave a presentation at my quilt guild last night about the importance of labeling and documenting our quilts. I made sure they knew I did not always practice what I preach, but I committed to having all my future Show and Tell quilts labeled and challenged them to do the same. Then, today, I worked on my quilt journal/scrapbook and organized what I had and noted which quilts I need to photograph and label. Progress!

I am posting a link to an eBay auction that has ended. It will show you what it is like and maybe give you an idea of what you can do. cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt

So I went to Joann's to buy the amazing roll of 25 ft of batting for $99 for our guild! If you need batting, go today and get this! So while I was there, I managed to find a pattern to make an elf costume for my granddaughter for halloween, even has the hat which I didn't know how I was going to do that. I also bought a pattern for a moo moo type housecoat that I'm making for myself for Halloween. I bought a really incredible creepy fabric that I'm going to make it out of and at least I'll be able to wear it around the house later. And I bought a pattern to make an evening dress for me and a beautiful polyester metallic turquoise fabric for it. Now, mind you, I haven't made a dress for myself that I liked in 30 years so why I think I can do this I don't know. I did notice that the fabric is very ravelly so I think I will make it out of muslin first to get the fit before tackling the real thing. Don't want to ruin it and throw it out. So, I visualize wearing this amazing dress with a cowel neckline and sleeve caps with a gentle gathered skirt, flat in front. I think I am visualizing myself as a 30 year old looking amazing but maybe it will work out. I need something for New Years Eve. Can't wear the same red velvet dress I wore for the last two years! Happy sewing!

Yesterday was a red white and blue day! I worked on no less than 3 red white and blue quilts! One was the Cathedral Star ala Bonnie Hunter. One was a quilt I'm making using the Sew Simple Pineapples Pattern by Karin Hellaby and the third, well I can't remember. But I know there were three. And I sewed on the binding of my Christmas Tree Quilt for my DIL and nearly finished with the hand sewing. I was a busy girl. Okay, maybe it was only two RWB quilts but I sure have a pile of 4 squares! I did a lot of assembly line sewing! SEW much fun to not work and just sew! Carol

I tweaked my eating plan tonight to make sure I was within all my ranges. I was able to avoid the extras I "wanted" by telling myself I was eating for good health and more energy. It worked!

For the last two days at work my coworkers and drug reps. (I work for doctors) have been bringing in donuts, chips, candy and McDonald's smoothies. I touched NOTHING! emoticon This is huge for me!

The best thing is that with my new mindset it didn't bother me to refuse. Then I get home last night and my DH had bought ice cream. I had a mini Hershey's dark chocolate instead and was quite satisfied. emoticon

I had the brainy idea to set up a scrapathon challenge here at Guild using one of Bonnie Hunter's pattern. See the Challenges forum. I posted in error under intro yourself so ignore that one but join me in making the Cathedral Star quilt from Bonnie's free patterns our of our scraps! Carol

Since going gluten free, I feel oh, so much better. The dr. was pleased and reduced some of my blood pressure and changed my thyroid. So far, since March, I have lost 24 lbs.
