Life, the universe and Diet Monday...!

Well it's that time of the week again and as you know, I do not own a scale. Therefore, there's really no way for me to report the weight I have lost, if any that is!

If it's any consolation, my jeans are loose on me. Of course that could be because I haven't washed them in weeks for fear of not fitting back into them....! Just kidding! lol

Over the weekend Penelope and I had a major play date. I've been busy machine quilting for a couple of good causes.

I barely finished machine quilting Butterfly Kisses a BOM designed by Nancy Murty of Bee Creative Design . The colours are delicious!

This quilt was made by a group of wonderful ladies and is being donated to help raise funds for the Glenwood Cemetery, a local non denominational cemetery in our village.

Such a kind and thoughtful gesture on their part, I just had to be a part of it myself! ;o)

This one was made by my friend Holly.

The quilt will be raffled to raise money for an Irish Dancing Association. I bet you couldn't tell that it was remotely Irish! lol

Well, that's it for me! Not much to report on my own quilting process. I haven't worked on any of my own personal projects for over a week. I think I'm going through withdrawal! lol

Keep well everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Must be hard sometimes to let a quilt go after you done the quilting. Both good causes for these quilts though. The kitty in your previous post always makes me smile!

The very best way to keep track of weight loss in my opinion is how our clothes are fitting. Gratz! and keep up the good work.

Yay!!!! Loose jeans! You go girl!!! I am proud of you and yet jealous at the same time. I just can't seem to stay with it for more than a couple of days at a time.

Love the quilts! Did you use pantos? If so, which ones? You know I always have to ask that. :~) You pick such pretty ones. Your quilting is spectacular!
