Welcome to my "new" diet ;) This blog will chronicle all of the crazy things I do to keep myself from diving into the pantry and devouring 8,000 calories in under 5 minutes flat! At this moment, quilting is my new "diet pill." For those of you who don't know me, I am a DIE HARD Lifetime Member of Weight Watchers and will always stand by and follow their plan. They are the BEST and they just plain ROCK!!! I have just found over time, that having a hobby really helps me battle stress (a BIG problem for me) and boredom. Now, before you can ask, "How can a woman with six children be bored?" ...it happens to the best of us. It turns out that housework and laundry just don't lure me away from the cookies like playing with pretty fabric :) So read on the see what in the world I get myself into.
While I am not new to sewing, I am new to quilting. I started quilting in mid January 2012 because my sweet hubby had to have surgery again and we were housebound for a long while. Quilting has be a wonderful thing for me.
On a more personal note, I am married to my high school sweetheart. We've been married for nearly 22 years. We've got 6 beautiful children, 3 girls and then 3 little boys. My husband and I both grew up in the Bay Area in California. We come from large families and our parents made it look so fun we thought we'd do the same :) My oldest two are in college and my baby will be starting first grade soon. Life is always an adventure around here and that is the way we like it! Oh, I am a stay at home mom, a job I'd always wanted, but was SUPER surprised at how challenging it can be ;D
I like quilting better than housework so I have rules about quilting.
#1 I have to do my chores before I can quilt!
#2 I have to shower and be dressed...real clothes, no jammies.
#3 I have to know what I am fixing for dinner.
So far they are working... the laundry still seems to get out of hand no matter what I do... but it's always been that way ;D
