    Hi all
    After you all talking about beans I'm making Burro Beans for dinner which are dressed up pinto beans with a cole slaw.
    I have been working on a new fall table topper and just need to quilt and bind and it's done. hope it will only take a day or two more because I have other things to get done for the holidays. just never seems to be enough time for all I want to do.
    Stay with the program we are heading for the home stretch .
    Hugs to all
    Gail

    I think I need to "gift" the applesauce I made last week. Just cooked the apples with the pealings, but then I added some cinnamon heart candies to give it a "pop" of color and taste. Have eaten my share of it, that's for sure.

    Finished another Xmas gift. This one will be a gift to SIL and BIL. So love the spicy swirl pattern. Has anyone used batik fabrics for one. I have some with blue/green/pink in it. I'm not even going to cut the strips just use the ruler and cut out the wedges. Will have to see how it works.

    Anyway eating has been okay. Am I loosing weight = not really. I'm trying to get those beans in more every day. Easier when DH is out of town and I can plan meals that might not appeal to him.

    Di, the Christmas SS is very pretty. I made a big mistake in the one I started this week. I cut the first strip at 3 1/2" instead of 3", so all the colors on the other end will be short. I'm going to go ahead and sew it together to see if I can save it. Right now I have its machine torn apart because I don't like the sound and the my go to piecer is set up FMQ so it will be tomorrow before I try it.

    Eating okay, weight loss, not. One of these days I will wake up to a big surprise. Right now I am in one of those up and down periods. Who knows why.

    I love the Spicy Spiral. I have made several out of batiks. I have one made of all black and white half way put together somewhere in my sewing room. I will have to hunt it down. The spirals are fairly easy and impressive looking. Here is one that I made. I can't find the other pictures.

    Another very pretty one. Green and purple are such naturals together.

    Just wanted to toss in a quick reminder. Change up your cardio every few weeks (if you can). It helps keep your body from falling into a groove, and keeps you from being bored. Also.. don't do weights and cardio in the same workout, you will make one or the other less effective.

    I applied for a job at my old company under my old manager today. Here's to hoping I get it. The last time I worked there was when I was going to the gym every night after work. I love their cafeteria and they do have a gym on site, pay is good and benes are great, plus bonuses, And it's work I can do, and I'm pretty sure they will be flexible enough for me to find a way to work my school classes in with them. So.. cross fingers for me.

    Everose - love the Spicy Swirl!!!! Great design and colors on both!!!! I'm trying to get myself back into my sewing room to work on my retreat project. Really want to see it done soon!! But I also want my house clean and since I'm playing "vacation" from work I'm trying to get caught up on things I've let go for tooo long. Hope to spend the next 3 days quilting once I get this done. Then it's back to work again....

    Oh, got my tests done for my gallbladder. Looks like my next stop is a consult with the surgeon to see when it will be coming out. Oh yeah. Really not a fan of anything surgery related, just gets me a little (lot) nervous. But, I don't like having to watch everything I eat, not that fish and chicken are bad. But I really would have liked to splurge a little while on retreat. Hopefully I get this thing out, get over it and be ready for the retreat in May. Then I can enjoy myself really good...LOL.

    Alright ladies....back to that thing I hate most.....cleaning. Have an AWESOME day!!!! Drink lots of water!!!! And love yourself!!
