Workin’ girl

12 Mar

A few things I’ve been working on.  AND I actually finished!

Quilt 1

This was made for a cute little girl.  I hope she’s loving the flannel and the warm coziness!


This was made for a cute little guy.  He probably hasn’t received it yet, but hopefully he’ll enjoy it as well!

And I’ve got a couple other quilts to work on over the next couple months and some other things too.  It’s nice to have projects to do.  But also consuming.  And I tend to extend the projects when I get to the more time consuming parts.  Just think, if I did the parts that seem to take forever right away, I’d get things done 2-3 weeks quicker than usual.  What a concept!


Hey there

12 Mar

Oh, hey there, blog world.  It’s been a while!  I haven’t forgotten about you.  Just been a bit neglectful.  I’ll try to do better.

I’ve been reflecting a lot lately about things that have been happening over the past few months.  And I remember I posted this list a while ago:

1.  Lose 20 pounds by Thanksgiving (no, I won’t put it back on over the holidays!)  I didn’t quite lose the weight by Thanksgiving, but I have lost some.

2.  Finish projects that are half done

3.  Start (and finish!) projects I have the materials for

4.  Eat more fruits and vegetables

5.  Read at lease one book every two weeks

6.  Try a new recipe once a week

7.  Start figuring out and making Christmas gifts.  I’ve decided it’s going to be a homemade Christmas this year.

8.  Apply for 5 jobs every two weeks.  I’m not ready to do just any job, so 5 every couple weeks seems manageable.

9.  See a doctor about my depression

10.  Blog at least twice a week

11.  Learn ways to cut back on our spending

12.  Get involved and stay active in our church

13.  Craft, craft, craft!

This was a good list for then.  I’ve actually done some of the things on this list.  But it’s time for a new one.  There may be some similar items listed, or at least some modifications.

1.  Get moving!  The hubs and I have a gym membership, which I’m ashamed to say, we hardly ever use.

2.  Start eating a diet with more whole foods.  Get rid of most of the processed crap we eat.  We’ve gotten better, but it’s time to take it to the next level.

3.  Read more.  I love reading, but it seems I’ve forgotten that.  I’ll take suggestions!

4.  Stay involved at church.  We’ve found a great congregation to be part of, but we get in the mode of it’s-so-far-away-and-we’re-lazy-so-lets-not-go-today.  We really enjoy our excuses around here.

5.  Keep crafting.  I’ve gotten so much done over the past few months and have many more things to do over the next few.

6.  Work on the house, one room/project at a time.  There’s so much we want to do.  It’s time to get some of it done.

7.  Do devotions with my wonderful husband.  We talk about this all the time, but we actually NEED to DO it.

Sounds like a good plan.  I need to start doing these things.  I WILL start doing these things.  I should probably stop writing and starting doing.
