I made some delicious homemade bread today. It has dried blueberries, cherries and apricots in it. I ate way, way too much of it. That many carbs will kill any weight loss I have going. It made a huge loaf. I am going to put some in the freezer. Hopefully my DH will continue to pig out on it so it will be gone.

I think I can smell your bread from here. My husband is the cook in our household and he likes to make cookies and very high sugar, white flour treats and then leave them laying around. Of course, I have to eat them. The freezer does not help. I can eat them frozen.

Right after that I started the Daniel Plan 10 day cleanse and lost another 5 lbs in 10 days. That's why I had such a good loss for December. As soon as I added dairy and grains back my weight loss slowed way down.
She is not the only one. I also gained and I was on a roll before it. It took me awhile to get back in the groove. I did not eat anything extra either. Maybe my body was just conserving?

Hey everyone. Lots of stress here. I either forget to eat or eat too much. Can't win.

I took a landscape quilt class a couple of months ago. The instructor was an art professor, not a seamstress. She taught the class from a different perspective than someone who sews. I really enjoyed it. I changed this a took it apart several times. I made the boat out of wood veneer and model magic. It is a half of a boat. I am really happy how it came out. Not sure why the picture is sideways.

That is really cool, Pat. I'm glad you said it was sideways because I really couldn't figure it out. LOL Did you dye the fabric or paint it or something? I love the shades of blue.

I really like it! Before you said it was side ways I already liked it. Hahahahaha I thought very artsy but now I see the boat is pretty realistic when you look at it side ways. The class sounds great too. Keep those creative juices flowing. The colors are amazing.

Very interesting, and cool. I had to tip my head and look for more than just a sec to appreciate. The background has some sort of land mass, yes? Will you have any trouble with hanging it?
