Goodies...

Well I still have not decided which pattern that I will make with my scraps that I pulled yesterday. Just really haven't had much time to think about it today. I did get these goodies in the mail today. Last week I placed an order with Connecting Threads. I got these two kits that were on sale and a spool of orange thread. I needed some pumpkin color thread for a Halloween quilt that I want to quilt later. I don't have plans, as of right now, to work on either of these kits so I just put them away for later. Tomorrow I have plans to get my frame put back together. I have 2 customer quilts that I need to get quilted. But I think after I get it put back together I will quilt a very small one of mine before I do the customer quilts. I know the last time that I took the frame down and moved it, I had to do a lot of adjusting so that is why I want to do one mine so if any adjusting needs to be done it will be on mine.


Here are a few photos of Andrew and his new toy! He is so excited with his truck. As you can see in the photos it was raining and his truck was a little dirty.
Here he is taking me and Hunter for a ride.
And here, he is getting ready to take mom and Chantal for a ride too.
Oh and here is Donkey, holding down all the papers on the table! LOL! Silly cat!
I made a decision late last night to go on a diet! :( I know they are not fun but I would like to get rid of about 30lbs. I've really enjoyed taking walks the past few evenings so that will certainly help, not only with losing weight but also getting the strength back in my hip and leg. I did put on several pounds this past year after my fall because I was not able to walk. And trust me....laying flat on your back makes your butt grow!! LOL!

That orange thread will be perfect for a Halloween quilt.

Good for you on the walking! Such great exercise, I was a walker for years before I started running. I still love to go for walks! My honeyman had back surgery several years back,so he can't run with me but we do love to go for a good walk!

I do a test quilt on the machine before almost every quilt that I do. Or at least when it has been sitting for a while. It still seems to get funky so I like to test it out. Hooray for the truck!

My butt is growing like weed! It shows on the photos that Andrew is very proud of his car.
