This morning is dedicated to reading a few blogs.  I am such a bad blogger... I simply don't find the time to read much any more.
But... today I am.  *smiles*

After lunch I shall get back to the block I started making last night.  It's really lovely.

The Sampler quilt I'm making was going to be in blues/greens, but after seeing so many gorgeous Kaffe Fassett fabrics at The Ribbon Rose, I've changed my colour scheme.  

Now it's going to be multi-coloured, using a Kaffe Fassett fabric in every block.
I got quite a few of the Kaffe Fassett fabrics last night:

ABOVE:  I just love these fabrics... the photo isn't a very good one... I took it late last night.  When you team these fabrics up with contrasting fabrics... you can get some gorgeous combo's...

ABOVE: This is the block I started last night in class.  Hopefully I should get to finish it this afternoon.
I just love choosing just the right fabrics to go together.  It's fun.

Getting excited about tomorrow... first weigh in after re-joining Weight Watchers.  *squeals*
I've been really good... NOT starving at all... simply following the plan, and so I do expect a healthy loss.  Of course, as it's the first week, we all know I am bound to have a really good loss ... which won't happen every week that's for sure.
Any guesses on how much?  I'm kinda expecting between 1-2 kilos.

Right, I'm off to do a couple of household jobs before doing some reading...


Good grief I just realised the time!
I have been reading and commenting on blogs all day, except for taking time out to hang out the washing (heaps of it), spending an hour or so with Russell (he came to visit) and having some lunch.

And I still have not finished.  So... back to it!

DONE.  Time to get off me butt and do something ... like get the washing in now!  Then ... get dinner sorted (roast chicken breasts with a Plum marinade), then sewing?

LOL... just remembered (in time) that I was supposed to be picking me niece up from the bus depot.  She's flying over to Australia tomorrow so she's there when her sister has her baby.  
So, I flew down to the bus depot and picked her up:

ABOVE:  Maxine.  aka Sabrina (her first name).  But she grew up being called Maxine, so she's Maxine to me.

ABOVE:  My weight Watcher clothes.  I am weighing them... and will wear the lightest one tomorrow.  YES... I am that anal.


ABOVE:  I put the oven on 'Fan Forced' instead of just 'Bake'.  This is the result.
Oooops.  We be having takeaways tonight.

The family had Pizza for dinner.  I didn't... I'm being good.

End of Day:  well apart from the chicken, it's been a good day.  Bring on TOMORROW!

    Personally I tried to wear heavier winter clothes when I first started so when I got closer to goal weight, I weighed in with thongs summer dress. As weights a lot harder to lose closer to goal, and is always good to have buffer if you need.

  7. Love the fabrics, just peel the burnt skin off!! Good girl on being good well done....
