Monday, Monday

Yes it's Monday. And you know what that means. Time to report to the Diet Master over at the Red Geranium. Still no big loss to report, but at least no gain again and the 1/2 pound lost last week is still gone. A weekend of cooking for family, including baking some of those valentine sugar cookies, did nothing for the scale but we had a great weekend. Just look at the last post to see why!

Thanks to Lori and Suzi, those classes at Total Fitness may finally be paying off as I do believe my jeans are definitely looser as well as my favorite exercise pants. By the way, I'll put a plug in for the best exercise pants at Lucy. They are sort of pricey, but worth every penny if you spend a lot of time trying to get in shape. They are super comfy, keep their shape and look good enough for the errand running after class. Plus, they come in a shorter length if you are vertically challenged like me:)

On to quilty things. I finished my January BOM for Among Friends today. This year the BOM quilt features the Perfect Patchwork Templates from Marti Mitchell. They seemed to work pretty good so far. At least this block looks good and it was fun to try something new. This year I'll be using the Spring Serenade collection by Sue Zipkin for Clothworks. Pretty, isn't it?

Back to my purse project addiction. This is the latest one. I'd have to go dig out the pattern downstairs to tell you what it is, but if anyone is interested, let me know. Just being lazy right now.

And for a hint at a little nursery project that is coming soon - check these out. I hope to start on some of this this week, so check back again to see how much progress I'm making. Grandbaby #2 will be here before we know it! Excitement is building!!!

Yes, I would like to know what the purse pattern is.

Thanks for asking about the purse. It is "A Tote-All Purse-O-Nality" #106. The web site is www.palmharborpatterns.com. I imagine you can order direct from there. Good Luck, ytsmom!

I love your purses. I gotta do one of those someday.

Oh my those baby fabrics are darling... Can't wait to see how they are used.

P.S. 2/19 a.m. -- your home page does not display the current journal. I had to click on Feb to get to it. Maybe you are working on it -- but in case not wanted you to know..

Love those baby fabrics!! I can feel the excitement rising...

The purse is great, too. I did the same BOM with those MM templates a few years ago and they turned out very well.
