This is just about all I could squeeze in since Tuesday, but at least the top is done and I plan to do some very simple quilting and have it in the finish pile! Sadly I have to report that my Bernina decided it just doesn't want to work anymore :-( !!! I had just finished buttonholing the flower center and then there was a clunk, clunk, clunk and that was it. Very, very sad!!! I pieced this smile wall hanging Saturday and it was next to be buttonholed. I am hoping it will help to pop out some of the letters, but I guess that will have to wait till my hand dandy repair guy gets the old girl going again. The giggle and laugh wall hangings that go with smile are cut and ready to be put together and will hang in G baby's room here at our house. Lots of family time last week. Our girl was home for an overnight stay, and between her being computer support to me and playing Wii with Dad, she was here and then gone..... wonderful to have her home.
So now for the Loser Monday report.......happy to report I lost 2 pounds. Writing every single morsel down seems to be doing the trick. I have been a Weight Watcher for a long time, always thinking I was keeping track of my points in my head....WRONG!!! I have discovered, (hate to admit this), I am a points cheater. Not intentionally mind you, but it seems those tastes here and there I just don't bother to count......well that was before. Now I am trying to be accountable and write everything down. This week we were suppose to give a salad recipe. Going through all my recipes I just don't have a great salad recipe, well Weight Watcher anyway. I thought that I would pass along one of my most favorite websites ..... Dottis Weight Loss Zone. She has a wealth of information about all that is WW!!!! Message boards, recipes, inspirational writings and my favorite, a list of restaurants with points for food. No excuses about eating out!!
Happy first week of February everyone. Hope there is more quilty business happening in your neck of the woods !!!!
