Back from the Quilter
looksie last night.
Konda Lukau (Moose on the Porch Quilts), my quilter ;), told me that some time away from it would do me good. She was right. I am still not in love with the colors and would do many things WAY differently now, but this was my second quilt and it has a special place in my heart. It is for my oldest daughters 20th birthday in a few weeks. She will love it. It's so big and heavy, I am not sure how I am going to wash it. It fits our California king bed PERFECTLY, so her queen bed will be really well covered. I hope she likes it. I post more after I get it bound. It will take me several evenings to get this bad boy done ;) I am binding it in a dark blue and tan gingham.
PS- I have lost .6# this week :) I am WAY happy about that! I haven't been as good as I should be with the eating and exercise so down ROCKS! A weird thing has happened, I would rather sew than get on the elliptical. ;)
PPS- I have been doing a lot of talking to myself about getting a grip about exercise. I am still sad that running has not come back into my life like I'd hoped after the accident. I am focusing on losing the weight with the elliptical, but I have an itch to run. I think I'll get some lubricant for the treadmill and start walking a few days a weeks too. Oh the things life likes to throw in our path...
PPPS- Konda told me that they are starting a quilt guilt down here, actually right up the street from my house!!!! I am SO excited! I joined the modern quilt guild at Broadbent's in Lehi yesterday, and now I'll have one close to home!!!! It is even during the day, 10-2 :) I am SO excited!!!!
