Finished Book

I finished the book that I previously posted about. It was pretty good and I really like the writing style: letter/diary. There were parts that were a little uncomfortable to read but it was a good book and a nice little lesson to learn. I think I would recommend it.

Starting FRESH

I haven't been so good at eating healthy and staying on track when it comes to Weight Watchers and I have gained over 10 lbs over my goal but I am starting FRESH! Weight Watchers has a new 2010 10 week challenge and I am going to follow it(a little late). My husband is going to do this with me so that will be a great support to me. I am on week one, which is tracking. This week I will just focus on writing down what I eat. You bite it, you write it:) My non-food reward for doing this will be going to a dollar movie of my choice(Yes, New Moon is at the dollar movies now) Wish me luck:)

P.S. This book looks really good. I should see if it is at my local library.

The Super Hero Cape

This is what I have been up to lately. I have been taking a break from the quilt and made two cute little capes for some birthday parties I have coming up. Here is the link to the tutorial I used: Thelongthread They were pretty easy and turned out way cute:) My husband did the letters and I think he did an awesome job!

Sew Much Fun

I have had a lot of fun having my husband home to watch my son so I am able to sew with hardly any interruptions. It has been a blast and I have made great progress with the crib quilt I am doing. It is so not perfect, lot's of puckers, but really not too bad for my first time doing any sort of a quilt. Here are some pictures of what I have been up to lately.

The average day at our house during a snow day.

Finished the squares and then sewed the strips.

Got all the strips sewn and I didn't do too bad matching the corners.

Here I am quilting. Learning to twist the material and stuff it through the arm of my machine.

Here is a sample of my quilting. I know it isn't perfect but hopefully I will have many years to improve. I have done 9 squares now just 21 left.
