Sewing Day

Yesterday i got in the mood to sew....why...i dont know...lol....so i went to WalMart and bought some yellow and white checked fabby....and made curtins for the kitchen....Then i decided that while i was in the sewing mood...i might as well make curtins for the living room as well...lol...I picked this pretty rose pattern fabby for the living room.
I think my new curtins turned out really nice....and look nice too...lol.
The next time i get in the sewing mood i need to make curtins for the bedroom....

Wishing everyone a Very Happy and safe New Year and weekend...

Hugs to all.

Some updates

First off...i have started a new stitching project...Magic Dragon by
Joan Elliott...I am stitching it on 14 count Gold Sparkle fabbie. I started it on Dec 21,2011....a thursday....i havent gotten much stitched yet,but off to a good start.










I have also been doing a lot of reading...i have read The Scarecrow,Echo Park, and The Last
Coyote by Michael Connelly.

Then i read Hour Game by David Baldacci.
Then The Christmas Thief by Mary Higgins Clark.
Next i read The Christmas Wife by Helen Norris....not a very good read.
Sharon let me borrow 2 of her books to read...Achesapeake Shores Christmas by Sherryl
Woods. And Driftwood Cottage by Sherryl Woods.

I have returned Sharon's books back to her...and gave her the other books of mine that i read.
And told her she can pass them around.

We had a green Christmas...and that was fine with me...
I have been walking everyday weather permitting....sometimes i get 1 mile in...other times
almost a mile walked.

I really enjoy living in town,where i can walk to the store,etc..about the only time i drive is on
fridays....

I am still on page 6 of my Cheetah SAL...i need to get it finished....lol

Update on me

Hello all my friends.Its been awhile that i updated my blog.The 2 months that we stayed with Tom and Sharon was great.Sharon got me into eating better.And back into walking.
I am now in our own place again.woohoo.Its on the 2nd floor..so i still have stairs to climb like at Sharon's.And i still eat better,woohoo,,lol...I still have my protein drinks for breakfast and i still eat salads and fresh fruits.
Now that i live in town,i walk almost everywhere. The other day i walked my first mile...wooohoooo...I love it.
I used to weight 235 pounds...i am now 212...woohoo.
I used to wear size large slacks...not anymore.
I finally had to get new slacks,a size medium...as large is just to baggy ....lol.
With shopping at the thrift store and clearance rack at Kmart,i was able to get a few new medium slacks.And
ALL of my "fat" slacks are now gone...lol.

Also a lot of the gals in the ESC group have shared a list of their favorite reads....so i logged into my local library and now i can check out the books on my laptop and read the ebooks...Thanks gals for all the help and support...

Hugs to all...
