    I am only using what is in my stash, so will need to see what i have that will work from within the color palete in the blocks. I was also thinking about bordering/framing each block in the black and find another color to make it wider, not too worried about the length.

    Have you tried Stevia for a sweetner? It is supposed to be plant based and better for you according to Dr. Oz. Yes the artificial sweetners are not good for you but Stevia is OK. There was a segment on Dr. Oz regarding sweetners and margarine. Good luck, hope you have a good month.

    Question about Teddy Bears

    Is there anywhere to sell Teddy Bears? My cousin had a collection of collectible Teddies and I don't know what to do with them? Any ideas?

    Good Morning ....I,m gathering up some things for Airwick to send as soon as we get her address. The gift cert. sounds like a great idea for the larger things she may need. Cindy please contact me with info when you get it, and I am keeping her in my prayers.
    I just weighed this morning and I have a reduction in my numbers of just over 2# so I am happy. Been cutting back on my portions and drinking more water. Now all I have to do is keep it up for the rest of the month.
    I have to share my JOY with you all. I am now, thanks to my dearest husband of 51 years tomorrow the proud owner of a Husqvarna Viking Ruby DeLuxe . I just keep pinching myself. Now to take the classes and have fun.
    Keep up the good work you are all doing so well. Cindy those gained pounds will come off as soon as you get regulated and can get back off the insulin. You are also in my prayers for quick improvement.
    Hugs to all

    When I get back home, some of us that swim are going to do a "Weigh In". I believe that helps keep one motivated especially if you see some progress. We do water aerobits three times a week. I find that doing the aerobics and then swimming some laps are the best workouts for me. We also "Mall Walk" at least two times a week.

    Cindy I said a prayer for you to feel better, and be able to get things under control.

    We are going to see my son and daughter in law this evening, and having dinner. This will be a challenge for me.
    We usually stay late, because after dinner we all get together for a game of either scrabble or another, and enjoy ourselves.

    I have begun a quilt top for my bed. The Trip Around the World. I am using florals in it, and will see how it turns out. I am doing it by hand so I can work on it while I am watching tv, and relaxing.
    I am also trying to finish up a wallhanging for the swap. Just finished a needle book for my sister's birthday. She needed one.

    Pam H (board or pc won't let me reply w a quote, grrr):

    I just watched the video and I know everything they are saying is true!
    I've been saying for years that some (lots) of foods cause pain and inflammation and irritability.
    This was very interesting, thank you!
    It is a blessing, to be a blessing !

    Cindy the t-shirt quilt looks good. I do not enjoy making them even though they aren't really that difficult. I could probably make them almost full time if I wanted to. I made a rock and roll one for a friend and tons of his friends would love one. I did charge my friend for fabric and my time. I don't see how I could really charge even close to what it would be worth. Even when friends want one I hesitate to do it.
    A friend from my guild has just upgraded her design wall. she is giving me the old one. I am picking it up this afternoon if the rain holds off long enough. We only have a pickup truck, nothing covered so I will have to dodge the rain. I also was going to stop and get me some peg board to hang my rulers on. I inherieted a ton of different rulers when my SIL bought a yarn store that at one time tried to be a quilt shop too. I have a bunch of the specialized creative grids rulers. Not even sure what I have. I need to play with them there are some easy cool designs to use them for.

    After I finish this t-shirt quilt, I have 2 more to make for another friend. You are right they aren't very difficult once you knnow what you are doing. They are time consuming more than anything, having to cut them apart, stablize them, frame them and pray they are all the same size. At least the other 2 I have to do, will not have the small pocket areas to be added. They are all about the same size to start with.

    I am with you I don't know that I will do them any more after these are done.

    Attended a healthy eating seminar at the chiropractors office. The offered a 28 day challenge, so I am in. No sugar for 6 days and know I will feel better soon. It really is easier to have none than alittle. Seems a little needs alittle more and a little more. On one of the days the question was What is your big Why? They said weaing a swimsuit this summer isn't big a enough why. I want to be healthy and dercrease pain and live to see my grandchildren. Another question was are you motivated by pleasure or pain? I'm a definite pleasure girl I haven't decided a big reward at goal wt or smaller goals and rewards... still pondering. Pain motivator I saw in the testimonials were running a marathon or having a friend post their WT on facebook if they didn't meet there goal... neither would work for me.

    Keep up your good work.

    Thank you sooo much for the support and prayers for my bestie airwick! She appreciates the support so much! Shes doing ok, missing her life here, which I suppose is normal. She is starting to get out a little which is good for her. She needs encouragements to sew as it will help occupy her time so it wont race at night!!
    Thank you again! Your all awesome!!:-D
