I've finally hit the 45 lb mark! Yee Ha! It is such slow going but at least it's going! Yesterday my exercise consisted of yard work. ICK! I had to mow and trim because DH is out of town. I HATE mowing and trimming. I don't know how those yard guys can stand their own hands after a day of working with a trimmer. I think my hands vibrated for hours afterwards. Plus smelling like gasoline and being covered with favorite! Good thing I managed to work my way through the jungle yesterday because it's raining again for a change. I don't think it's rained this frequently in the entire 13 years I 've lived in Texas!

I ordered some fabric from e-bay and it's been nearly a month and NO FABRIC! I am so irritated. I am making an anniversary quilt for Mrs. S and Mr. Fancypants. I am using the same focus fabric as I used in their chuppah. Because the fabric is no longer made, I needed to buy it from e-bay. Today I plan on cutting all the rest of the parts and if it doesn't arrive, just go out and buy something else. Then complain like nobodies business to ebay and the seller.

I decided to post an oldie. I don't know if I've posted it before or not. I made this a few years ago for my niece. It's the only cat she could have at the time. It came out so fun and colorful. I really need to get busy at the sewing machine so I can post some new quilty pictures!

Great on the weight loss. I've turned myself over to WW. Have you emailed the eBay vendor? This has happened to me on a book. I emailed the vendor and told s/he that I would leave very negative feedback if my purchase did not arrive soon. Especially since s/he had already been paid via PayPal. Good luck. The fabric looks vaguely like the "Bizarre Spice" fabric I used in a Stack-N-Whack

You absolutely MUST give yourself a giant hand of applause! 45 lbs! And, do you think you might post a before and after photo? Might help some of .... others .... (not me of course) to gather strength for a similar goal.

Hoooorayyyy for you!
