    Mary, are you in the midwest? That sounds like my weather forecast.
    Today was my 3rd day with a migraine. After being sick so many days last week, I just want to feel well. That doesn't seem like too much to ask. Yesterday was miserable with my DGD. She still is not feeling well and all she did was whine.

    No, Pam, I'm in upstate NY. At least it's above 0 today! Hope you're feeling better. Migraines are no fun.

    Hello to everyone,
    I haven't been online for a week and almost forgot my routine. Miss Pat, did I send a FQ for Jan?

    I lost a whole pound in December. Probably because I was still in quilt making mode until Dec 22, when I finished the last of my 9 quilts for Christmas. Thank God for my hubby who did not complain and kept me fed and clean clothes on my back.

    I love the freshness of a new year. I was so insanely busy last year, that I'm almost lost. I'll get my footing once I decide on my next project.

    Not to be left out of the cold weather, we are getting ice here in the Texas Hill Country. At least I'm home.

    My hubby took a job in Austin in 2006. We bought a house and the movers took our stuff there in January of 2007. The movers were a few days late because there was a 3 day ice storm in Austin. Pretty much everything shut down. Hubby didn't go to work for 3 days. That was pretty crazy. I learned not to drive if it ever snowed because people there don't know how to drive in it. Plus they don't have the salt and sand or snowplows to treat the roads like they do here in Wisconsin. They didn't have school here yesterday because of the -40 degree windchill.

    Pam and Mary, that weather sounds horrible!! We moved from WV a couple years ago and I hated when our temps would get that low. We're in Seattle now and I LOVE the weather. The summers rarely get too hot and the winters usually stay mild. I'm least motivated to work out when I'm cold, but I've started doing home workouts when I'm cold in order to warm up. I figured in the end I'll be warm and I'm healthier for it

    Leann, sounds like my hubby I love when I'm on a deadline and super obsessing about stuff he takes care of me I made a quilt in November for a wedding present and when I got down to the wire he'd bring me food at my sewing machine!! He even helped me bury all my threads!

    Keep warm everyone!!!!!

    Megan and Leann, sounds like you both have very supportive husbands! We had bitter cold weather last week too which you would think would make me want to exercise more to keep warm. But no, I just huddled in my sewing room with the space heater on. I did get a lot of quilting done and I lost a little weight. Must be all the shivering counts as exercise . I hope everyone else is warming back up this week.

    Heather, I'm with you - cold weather does NOT make me want to exercise! Huddling by the heater is much more my speed. Now if I could only get to the losing weight part....

    Ok, I will start with I owe a couple of huge apologies. I wrote a couple of weight losses for December on the wrong line. I declared the incorrect winner. Pete is the winner for December with a loss of 2.5 pounds. I am so, so sorry. I listed Megan as the winner, incorrectly. Megan thank you for pointing this out to me.
    I have been off for a week or so due to computer issues and I was out late the last 2 night. Again I am so sorry.

    Woo Hoo! That means I am eligible for Feb - I love purple!!! Watch out folks - I am finally on a role. Of course I will be going on a retreat for that month and as Meanmom pointed out --- good food will be available at all times. I am trying to think of snacks for me to take. I am also cleaning out my freezer fo Christmas cookies and will take those.

    Congrats Pete!
    I leave for vacation tomorrow. Will be spending a week in Florida with my mom and 2 of my sisters. I plan to walk my butt off! Hopefully my thighs and tummy will go with it!
    Hopefully I will have time to get my fq's in the mail tomorrow before I go.

    Congratulations Pete!!! I sent in a pretty amazing purple fabric I took my daughter with me to the fabric store and told her what colors I was looking for. She grabbed a purple that she liked and I fell in love with it when I saw it!!!! You'll have to work hard to find out what it is

    Heather! I forgot I had a space heater in my sewing room!! Your plan sounds much better than mine!!!! honestly I haven't been in my craft room at all since mid December except to put away my Christmas gifts and cut a piece of fabric down to a fat quarter to send to Pat!!!! Hahahaha! I don't know what's been wrong with me. And shivering definitely burns calories!!

    Congratulations Pete!

    Megan, space heater + sewing room = lots of work done! I've actually accomplished quite a bit last week although not on the exercise front. I've been doing a little better this week with exercise. However, I picked up pizza and bread sticks at Jet's Pizza on my way home from bible study this morning and I wasn't good . Will have to be extra good the next few days!

    Good Morning Everyone! I hope all are well (and not freezing to death) Here in California, it is a beautiful sunny day. I really should go outside and enjoy it
    I did not get my FQ's sent out last Friday, but they should go into today's mail
    I am on Baby watch. Grand baby #5 is due Sunday. We were really hoping that she would make a showing before now but...... I know they have their own timing. I just home she comes soon enough that I can still go to the Road to California Quilt show with my friends!
    We found out on New Years eve that #6 is in the oven. Daughter #3 has baby #1 due in August. They are just coming fast and furious! Love love love being a grand ma!!!!!
    I gained in November and December. As of this morning I have lost most of what I gained for those two months. Not quite all of it yet but hoping that I can get to at least where I was on the first of November by the end of this month. Then to lose another, say, 100 lbs! That would be good

    Well, now to find the address to send the FQ's and I will get them in the mail!
    Have a great week everyone!!!!


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    I have a friend who used to own a LQS. SHe had problems with the landlord and closed it. She says she is going to reopen elsewhere, but it has been a couple of years. She runs it out of her basement now. I am going there MOnday and Tuesday all day to work on a wall hanging. I have had most of the supplies for 2 years. It is a cityscape, bargello. I am really looking forward to making it. All the fabric there will tempt me to buy it.
    While digging to find my stuff for the wall hanging I found all kinds of fabric I didn't even know I have. I really need to either quit buying fabric or retire so I can sew more.
    Weigh in is tomorrow. It should be pretty good. I had a pretty salty lunch today, I hope it doesn't mess up my weight loss. We had Panera. I had one of their broths with chicken and soba noodles. It was really good but is has about 1300 mg of sodium. I am trying to drink extra water to get rid of the salt weight.

    OMG my body is falling apart! MY right knee is bad and bothers me off and on. My left hamstring has been a little bit sore for a couple of weeks. I pulled it yesterday. GRRR! Not sure what I did I noticed how sore it was going up the 1 step to get in the front door. My right knee hurts somewhat going down stairs and the left cheek hurts going up. I scheduled a massage for Tuesday. Hopefully that will help.

    I received 3 FQ from Megan. So pretty. I can't decide if I like the purple or the orange one the best. DOes anyone know how to get pictures from my iPhone onto here? I haven't been able to get it to work. I am down 2.5 pounds.

    Penni good luck with the surgery.

    I've cut out most of my night snacking and have lost the few pounds that I recently gained! I've been wanting dessert for the last few nights but my kids have been a great support telling me I don't need it and to get used to not having it. They've been great. I went out to dinner with girlfriends and didn't eat as much of the bread as normal and only ate half my entree (brought the rest home for another day). I'm trying to be good!

    A blessed Sunday to everyone. Apologies for not posting more - my days just evaporate, especially when my son is home. Got him back to his apartment in Austin yesterday, classes for the new semester begin on Tuesday. Hopefully he is set for a while. Still have not had my machine repaired, but it worked well enough for my son to make 6 little fabric bowls/boxes. After making so many quilts last year, I'm still catching my breath. I am however, looking at maybe starting something new from my humongous scrap piles. Being able to make something without a deadline will be a nice change.

    Congratulations Pete on your loss!

    Congratulations Gayle on precious additions to your family.

    Pat, how is the hamstring?

    I am working on getting my ducks in a row - right now focused on tax return and submitting the FAFSA. After such a hurricane of work and getting ready for Christmas, I am kinda lost.

    Hugs to my friends this day.

    Jim's Gem - quit bragging about the warm weather! We are really having a long cold spell. Tell us how the road to California Quilt show was. MeanMom - we eat at Pandera's every Sunday for breakfast -- I get the steak power bowl: egg white scrambled, tomato slices, a few slices of avocado and some sliced steak ...no carbs. Hate watching everyone else at our table eating bagels, muffins, scones, etc. But, I am determined this time. Had game night last week with my GNO group - and behaved myself! I took no carbs. Brought two of the desserts home to my hubby!
    meganc731 - can't wait ro see the purple!

    Gayle- any baby news?? Congrats on #6 as well!!!

    Raggiemom- yep that worked! Space heater did equal lots of work done! I was doing the 7th mystery quilt on this board but I didn't get a chance to do the last step before I switched into wedding gift/vacation mode. I have everything almost completed!

    Pat- glad you got the FQ's! I've been eyeing that orange in my LQS for awhile was happy I got a chance to buy it! Also I used to be able to post pictures from my phone just fine but recently I can't. I can only do it from my iPad :/

    Cindy- that is the hardest part for me, nighttime snacking and desserts. Congrats for sticking with it! I went to a movie tonight and I wanted popcorn so bad but I've been at a stall and I knew it wouldn't help. I somehow powered through it but it's a good thing I liked the movie or I would have caved.

    Pete- good job sticking to it! My purple FQ will make it all worth it hehehe

    Good morning everyone!
    Yes we have a beautiful little girl
    Annabelle Noelani Grace Alvarez was born on Saturday. Weight 8 lb 5 oz, 20.5 in. I got to be there for the delivery. It went pretty fast. No time for an epidural. Daughter freaked out at that. But we survived! LOL!!!
    I am heading down there to her house shortly to help out for a few days. They should be getting out of the hospital sometime this morning. Her husband gets 3 weeks off (could you imagine that, my DH got about 3 days, my dad, none) His sister lives there at the house with them so I am not really NEEDED just wanted.
    Road to California starts on Thursday but we typically go on Friday. So I will drive there from my daughter's house on Friday morning and meet my friends. I need to use a wheel chair for shows. I can only be on my feet for a couple hours (barely) before I am in a lot of pain. So I will walk up pushing my own wheel chair (it's a transport chair) until I find my friends. Looking forward to the show.
    I mailed out my FQ's (finally) on Friday. Hopefully you will get them tomorrow.
    I don't know how well my eating will go these next couple of days. My Son in law loves bacon and I have a hard time resisting it if I'm cooking it or nearby while it's cooking.
    Looking forward to playing with my grand-sons (2 and 3.5) for a couple of days and holding little Anna.
    Hope you all stay un-frozen. It was 80 here Saturday. I think it is suppose to only be 75 today and drop to 70 on Wednesday. I suppose I should bring a couple of long sleeve shirts with me.
    Purple is my favorite. I'm going to have to starve myself to win those next month


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    I spent the day at my friends house collecting fabric for a wall hanging we both want to make. It is good that she has a LQS in her basement. We needed a progression from light to dark (8 fabrics) in 8 different colors. Plus at 4 to 8 blues for the sky. We worked on picking out the colors and cutting the fat 1/8ths that we need from 9:30 to 3:30. It calls for 72 different fabrics for a wall hanging. It is a Bargello city scape, the pieces finish to 1 1/2 x 1/2. I hope I don't go insane making it. http://www.quiltedgallery.com/patterns/p_midnight.html. DOn't know if the link will work. It is called Midnight cityscape.
    Eating has been pretty good today. I also went to my yoga class. I really enjoy it.

    Congratulations to those who lost this month. I'm just holding my own - no loss, no gain so I guess I should be happy with that. One of my problems is I can't do much exercising because of a bad knee and both hips are really giving me pain. Have an appt. with an orthopedic dr. on Wed. and can't wait to see what he says. I am really tired of always being afraid of falling, which has happened, even the dogs just running into me can knock me down. When I hear them coming I stand still and if possible brace myself by holding up the walls.

    I haven't mailed my 3 FQs in yet, will do that next week, I won 2 months so I'm not worried about winning anytime soon. But I do need to lose the weight and now that the cookie temptation is over hopefully I will get back on track.
