WIP Wednesday


I almost forgot that this was Wednesday; I've had doctor's appointments all week and haven't had time to do much. Luckily, I'm getting good news on my condition except that I've gained 10 pounds back of the 35 pounds I lost last year; so I'm back on my eat healthy and exercise regimen as soon as my ankle can stand using the machines at Curves. Why is it so hard to continue shedding weight and exercising when it makes me feel so much better? Too many years of managing my feelings with food rather than a more positive way.

Here is a photo of my work table as it looks this evening. I'm piecing another WOTB block and assembling my December Journal Quilt. This JQ is built around a block designed and sewn by Granddaughter, Mandy, from pieces out of the scrap basket; the quilting heritage passing on to the next generation. Mandy was pleased to allow me to use her block in my fabric book. I want to get this completed and posted soon so I can then concentrate on Christmas.

I've been corresponding with Debra and Beth about making one of the children's quilts for the 40 Quilt Service Project. Beth is sending some great striped sky designs fabric to make a Strippy Nine Patch quilt. I am delighted to be involved with this project to make quilts for many deserving people in 2007. Quilters have such big hearts!

I keep finding the weight I manage to lose too. Wish it weren't so easy to find!
