April showers bring May flowers. So I thought a good FQ theme for April would be flowers so we are ready for May. So I think it is the month we should try to renew our commitment to weight loss and our health We need to get ready for swimsuit season. We are all so used to doing for others.Remember sometimes it is ok to put yourself first. So lets see how we can play with some your choice of FQ's. Please send quality fabric that you would want to receive in return. As always if you don't have the theme, send what you have. If you don't have a FQ, then send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the running for the prize, please send your FQ to the hostess by the 15th of the month. As the winner has worked hard for her prize.

Eat healthy, exercise, make wise choices and lose weight but most of all have fun!!!

Sign up deadline to be a part of the PRIZE adventure April 4th at 9 pm cst. You are encourage to contribute to the thread even if you are not in for the prize.

To let me know you are participating post on the thread and then send a PM for the mailing address. Our FQ theme for April is floral.

Welcome everyone and good luck. We often post the FQ theme 3 months at a time, it saves on postage to send 3 at a time. Our FQ theme for the next 3 months is April, floral, May bright, June, blenders.

I'm in again, too.

Same here, Penni! :p

I rode the stationary bike this morning, 15 mins only, but that's a start, right?

Thanks for starting the new thread, Pat.

I own no scale so I can't participate here right now but my DD's put an app on my phone from loseit.com and 3 of us are trying to loose weight. Even with no scale my clothes will tell me if I am on the right track. Unfortunately I just spend a good amount of $ on some clothes that are roomy.

Are there any particular diets or programs for support that you are following? Unfortunately I did not see quilting under exercise. I do a lot of quilting but I do feel that us quilters are a happy round bunch overall.

If I plan to buy a scale any tips on getting a good one? Brand? I am tired of scales that read different every time you step on them. I mean like a minute apart because they are not accurate.

meanmom 03-31-2015 03:08 PM

Anna welcome. If quilting was exercise I would be nothing but skin and bones. I have a Weight Watchers brand scale. It wasn't too expensive. I have had it about 5 years and it is pretty accurate.

Thank you meanmom! Hmmm I know. I think my hobby doesn't help in the weight loss department. Pitty!

I think I would like to give this a try. New to this so how many fat qts do we send you?
