My Weight Loss Journey

Friday, May 14, 2010

Weigh-In Friday

I lost 1/2 a pound last week for a grand total of 17 pounds lost in 9 weeks....I'LL TAKE IT!!!! This week I didn't run as much. If I had, I am sure I would have seen a bigger loss for the week. So next week I have to step it up. The weather here has been sooooo crappy but that is no excuse, I can always get on the treadmill. I guess I really like running outside better but that is not always possible so I am going to have to suck it up and hop on the treadmill when the weather is rainy and cold!!!!!

I will have to admit that I have got doll making burn-out right now. I love making them and will continue but I guess I need to take a little break for a little bit and create other things. So, I have been enjoying stitching is one I just finished, I have to frame it yet but I LOVE IT!!!!

Newest Creation

I bought some old sugar sacks during one of my travels last winter. As soon as I saw them I thought they would be adorable with a stitched saying on the front and then stuffed with Sweet Annie or maybe even a doll....I will see when I get that far. But for now, I am happy with the work in progress.

I started this little beauty 2 years ago, this winter I finally finished it. I coffee stained it last week now just have to frame it up....just in time for the 4th of July.

Today, I got in the mood to sew a shirt so here it is. It is still work in progress and I have to do some tweaking to make it come out the way I want. This is my first draft and I am going to make some changes to the pattern and make it again.....I will see what happens after that.

Well, that's what I have been up to today. My husband is on his way home from work so I better get supper going. Have a BLESSED weekend everyone....Rhonda
