I have be fiddle faddling around with the same 10 lbs for a year now. It is annoying and I've been looking for inspiration....ANYWHERE!! S0, we all made goals for the month of June. This was all my stupid idea. I said that I wanted to lose 10 lbs for the umpteenth time. Serena and Chris-A made goals too. Aviva and Chris-S didn't. Serena held to hers and about 10 days ago asked us how we were doing. WHOOPS! I had forgotten about it!!
After discussion, Chris-A and I made a deal for our goals....little did I know he planned on sticking to it!! LOL!! He is giving me a run for my money! But....if all goes well over the next two days, I will have attained my goal!! WHOOHOO! (don't get too excited as I had gained that 10 lbs).
For July it seems we all have goals, DH not included as he is healing! My goal is 4 days a week at the gym.....Chris-A dittoed my goal.....my muscles already hurt! Aviva has a gym goal, Serena and Chris-S have the same goal.
The way I see it the month of June goes to Serena for inspiring us...uhm and making us feel bad that we weren't working towards our goals. I am hoping that the month of July will go to me and that Chris-A will poop out with the gym! It's not easy for me to go toe to toe with him...he's almost half my age!
The unknowns here though are the rest of the family....they may just surprise us and be the winners! Any way you look at it we will (hopefully) all be winners by the end of July.

The entire crew....
DH and I. I LOVE this photo as getting DH to smile is like pulling teeth. This is as close as we've ever gotten!
DH can't do anything serious and he was squeezing the stuffing out of me! I do like how it made my waist look so small though!!!
Serena and her husband
Too bad they aren't in love huh?
Aviva and her (now) husband.
The photographer was awesome! She manages to catch moments. Doesn't this look like a Calvin Klein commercial?
Love this! The guys MUST appear tough and crusty!
DH loves his girls and they love him. This picture brought tears to my eyes.
If you are so bored out of your mind and have nothing better to do, we have 50 some odd shots from this photo shoot! Have at it!!!

A little late but I'm here...
So my machine is going to the spa....for a minimum of one week. The tech said that they are running at 10 days however, I send my machine to Austin. I live almost 4 hours away. After Friday, I won't be able to pick it up for at least 3 weeks.....sigh....... Let's keep our fingers crossed he is able to finish it before I get there on Friday!
On the plus side of no machine, I have to work on other things. So...my goal of the summer is to get my fabric scraps
and drawers under control. No machine will allow me to do just that. I am working on the chuppah scraps I didn't finish. Next I'm going to attack the drawers of strips in sizes I'll never use. I'm going to take them down to the sizes I will use and then....USE them!
On a TOTALLY unrelated note....I think my heart rate monitor needs a new battery.....
or maybe I DO! LOL!!

I began this last year for DH. I had found both Cleveland Cavalier and Cleveland Browns fabric. This one is finished just in time for basketball season to be over!! LOL!! Oh well. Hopefully, I will finish the football quilt that is identical to this one, only with the Browns, before football season begins!!!

I made it totally out of T-shirts, It is a great recycle project! The bits of color among each block are the logos, pictures and wording on the T-shirts.
I am allllmost done. The problem is that I am unable to work on it for more then a few minutes at a time.
I have some serious shoulder issues that really, really flare when I work on this rug. I am determined to finish it so I do it in small bits. I find it very upsetting that I cannot locker hook any longer. Luckily I have this and this and this to enjoy. Unfortunately, I also have tons of supplies to do more rugs!!
It's so much fun to pop over to Judy's blog and see what all the bloggers are working on this week!!

I am loving working on this super easy quilt. It goes together so quickly! I have decided to make it queen or king sized. I haven't finished cutting my strip sets so the size will depend on that. I've already assembled 200 quarter blocks and 6 full blocks. For me, working this quickly is a big deal.
I don't think I'll be sewing before Dan comes home. To frivolous to sure and sew right now. Besides don't want to. I sleep just fine, for days and days on end, when he travels but can't sleep when he is literally only one mile away! Same with sewing. Soooo.... I'll suit and mark my bazillion squares and be ready to go as soon as he comes home!
