August is usually pretty hot so lets find some creative ways to exercise.Early in the morning or in the evening . So I thought a good FQ theme for August would be batiks. 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 fall 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.

Ok ladies are we ready for a new month. Last month I made a mistake and in one place I put that the theme for July was purple and in another place I put batiks. I plead temporary alzheimers!(or I was on vacation when I posted the thread) The correct theme for August is batiks but either will be fine.
SO lets all get to work on some healthy eating and exercise. We need to get in shap for all the bad things that tempt us between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Is anyone doing the row by row shop hop? I have picked up a few cute ones. I just had a friend send me one I wanted from northern Ohio. It is adorable but OMG looks like it might be a pain to make. It is a mermaid, really cute. The kit was $15 which isn't too bad. It has hand embroidery all over it and tons of beads etc. The embelishment kit for it was $90.(no that isn't a typo) I didn't get one of course. I think it might get the reward for the most difficult row of all of them. The shop is Quilters Fancy in Ohio. I will find a way to do most of it by machine.

I'm in for August!
I am not doing the row by row but I did look up the rows for WI and MN and saw so many cute ones. I'll have to check out that one from Ohio. I wonder how many embellishment kits they have sold.

I am going to join again. A year or two ago I won a month with 16 lbs in one month, but then I started gaining it back, and got so discouraged I gave up. But I am in again. No, I am not doing the row by row, but it sounds interesting.

It's simple. Just say you want to join. Then join in on the chit chat. Maybe share your favorite diet and fitness tips. If you have some favorite healthy recipes, we'd love to hear about those too. We also love pics of what you are working on.
