Good Morning my fellow bloggers!!! Well its been a few days since I have blogged..just too busy I guess and it will get busier as I need to buckle down and get some crafting done and not be on this computer so much..but I sooooo looovvvee reading your blogs that it is tough..so may be reading more and blogging less for a while till after my show is done..yeah we'll see if that sticks..it just might be once or twice a week instead of my 4 or more days..so bear with me on this..I am sure alot of you are in the same boat..well on to the shopping portion.. on tuesday I had to go grocery shopping and I decided to hit our quilt store to see what wool fabric they had..I love this store and if you spend so much they give you a $25.00 credit to use towards anything..so this book above is what I got for free..(only had to pay the tax)..I can't wait to make the projects in this one..I don't have alot of "thanksgivingish type items..has anyone heard of these folks? they have a great christmas one..but I loved!! this one..
can't wait to make that pilgrim man..he is soooo prim...
and I love the turkey wool felt wall hanging..
I purchased this gyspy quilter..you attach it to your big ruler..makes it so you can keep a good grip on the ruler so you get a straighter cut...they use it as the quilt store when they cut my wool..;)
Yummy yummy wool for sale..I love it..
and I got this really neat panel of chickens to make pillows or hot pads out of..there are 16 to make..I love the colors..they are so french..wee-wee..;)
yesterday after my annual pap smear appt..(oh how I hate those things)..every bit of it..but the great news because I have been exercising and losing weight I am off of one of my high blood pressure meds..SWEET!!!!! that was so good to hear..my blood pressure was about 94 over 52..that was awesome..so there are pluses to being healthier for sure..so after that I went to wally world and I found this cute little resin pumpkin..its in my bathroom...
and I got my candy and treat bags..
and they are all in my pumpkin longaberger basket..
I love making trick or treat bags for the kids that come around..so they will be getting this and candy..you are all welcome to stop at my home for a bag..
did the last of my halloween tweaking yesterday too..I put my halloween poem up on the chalkboard..
I added the sign, the two pumpkins(the one lights up with a flame inside (fake of course) but cool.. and the eearry face..that when you push the button a childs voice is sreaming for you to help her..I love it..wonder how many kids will push it to see what it does..
I added my trusty crow to watch over the broom rides..
I put these flowers in an apple basket..looks much more festive...
and last but not least..Cindy does this look familiar? It was hanging on my craftroom door so now its on my front door..
I have finished up 2 more scarves with another orange one in the works..and a christmas penny rug that is almost done..but i needed white wool felt for the background..(hence the shopping trip)..will share that one when its done..
I am having fun stitching these out and trying to make them all different..they are sooo warm and cozy..one might be staying with me..or at the very least modeling it when I do my show..well today is the day..I am mailing off everyones packages..so sorry this has taken so long in getting to my winners..but it will be worth the wait I promise..
Oh I almost forgot.I have been on a plateau of sorts and going up and down a pound for a while now..well I watched Dr. Oz the other day and he had on Chris powell for america's biggest loser and he talked about losing weight..well I was all ears cause these last 26 have been a bugger so far..he said to do high carb one day and low carb the next day..well I am on my 3rd day and still exercising..in fact on monday I did 70 minutes, which is 4 miles and 700 calories burned..and nothing..so I started this high/low carb thing and I am down 59 pounds today (hoping its not a fluke)..I weighed myself 3 times to be sure)..so now I have 23 to lose..I am syked..I have worked hard to lose this weight and feel better then I ever have..and hubby is down 24 pounds and we both look and feel so much better..so if you haven't started..what are you waiting for..just do it..I can't begin to tell you how much better I feel mentally..I am a much happier person now..and I can move around better..and I love getting dressed up again..clothes shopping is fun..cause I know I can go anywhere to get clothes and not just the two stores they offer..(you all know what I am talking about)..okay off my soap box..I hope you all have a wonderful thursday..I am off to pack boxes up..tomorrow or saturday I am putting down more bark..then I am done with that for the season..just waiting for the leaves to fall so I can blow them out of here..the weather looks nice for the next couple of days..so might get the last load of gravel put down..it will be a freebie...You gotta love FREE!!!Thanks for stopping by and saying hey..I love when you stop and leave me a comment..;)
