Today – the first Saturday of the month – is our quilting day.  I messed up my block of the month – sigh.  But hopefully Trina will be able to get more more fabric soon.  In the meantime I started a quilt for my living room….here is the beginning:

photo_030709_005Colors are not 100% as this was taken with my phone.  The next steps are to find fabric for borders and backing and finish it.  Since that will take awhile, I’m back to knitting.  Almost done with JGirl’s easter sweater and making good progress on Dad’s father day socks!

Ok – I joined my Hub’s gym last week in order to keep him company and to avoid a lecture! lol  But I’m really enjoying it.

And, now that I’ve lost a bit of weight and feel really, really good…I’m considering taking this to the next level.  Watching what I eat.  But how to proceed?  There are almost too many options.  And none of them take into account that there are more non-dieters in my home than dieters.  How do you do that??

I noticed that the gym was hanging posters for Weight Watchers on the walls today.  I’ve never done weight watchers.  Mainly because I can barely get out of the house for the gym…how can I add another thing??  But I did it online once upon a time…I just can’t remember if it worked for me or not.  Stupid memory!!

Anyone else have any experience with WW online or have any other ideas for me?  BTW, I tried Sparkpeople…it’s a confusing mess of a site for me that I did not enjoy!!

If you can visit me in Ravelry – you need to do that – because I’ve finally taken photos of all of my stash! Well, the stash I’m going to admit to, anyway! I have tons more cotton and older project yarn…but I’m not going to worry about them right now! I’m Knitnmom on Ravelry if you haven’t added me as a friend yet!

In addition to buying new yarn, I’ve been knitting! I’ve just been bad about taking pictures! 🙂 So, hold onto your socks….here’s a firehose of projects! (Click on picture to make them bigger)
