Work, work, work. When will I ever get caught up??????? Hopefully this weekend.
I pieced the back, not sure if I like it, and I have my sandwich done/pinned. I'm taking "my girl" to the humane society tomorrow then I should have my weekend free. The weather is supposed to be nice-darn! not because I don't like nice weather, but it's hard to stay in and get any sewing done when it's nice-we live in the north and need to take advantage of any sunshine. I'm hoping to finish this quilt, then start on one for charity-I'm doing a charity run (well, it's a half marathon, I'm sure I will mostly walk) in July, and I'd also like to try this same pattern in Christmas fabrics.
In other news, I'm training for a 10k in April-I have "run" (and I use the term loosely) 2.5 miles without stopping/walking three times this week! Yah for me! DH and I are taking a vaca in April and would both like to be a bit lighter by then, so far he's lost 4 lbs (in 5 days!) and I've lost about 3.5 (in 2 weeks-why is it so much easier for them?). I feel wonderful though and I'm at a weight that I haven't been at in about 4 years-yes, I've lost some prior to this, but I could never get under a certain weight, now I'm 3.5 lbs under that-woot! It sure is easier when he's on board too!
I have pictures but I'm not sure where I saved them. Perhaps I can get things uploaded this weekend.
In other, other news, we have a new baby girl due in our family any minute now. I did send a few items on her registry but I also sent these 2 receiving blankets. I can't wait to meet this newest addition!
I love making these blankets, and from everything I've heard and read, you can never have enough!
