In bed reading. Time to go to sleep.

Taking a BLT salad to the Church dinner tomorrow. I got to thinking, today, that there will be yummy food, and we ALL know how good the food is at Church dinners. I can only eat just a bite or two. Rats. If not for Jim, I would go to Church and leave my salad, go home after the service but before we start to line up to fill the plates. Rats.

Had to get new pjs and panties today. My pjs were literally falling off me. And, my panties just hung. I have no butt anymore. I have now lost 18 pounds and am still losing. I have gone from a 16/18 to a 12. Clothes are expensive. Am only getting a couple pair of jeans and a couple t-shirts. If I am still losing, I don't wait to fill my closet with more clothes I can't wear.

Have a good night, all.

Sukochi

Crocheted this hat while my son skated with my nieces. Then I got photo bombed by a cute boy. :) 

Okay so you can't see the hat in that picture, so here is a pic of it on my oldest niece who is now the owner of it... :)

Thanks Marie!  It touched my heart that my niece claimed it as her own without really asking permission.  Our relationship hasn't been the best (that's a really long and heart breaking story), but lately there has been a lot of healing there, so her being comfortable enough to claim something that I made as her own touched my heart. 

hehehe...I did get loads of odd looks at the skating rink while I was crocheting it.  I also had someone come up and tell me I was doing a great job and I crocheted really fast.  Funny, this is only the second hat I have ever made.  Before that my limit was three very rough rows of stitches that I got frustrated with and threw away.

It is nice when family appreciates the things that we make, your niece obviously has good taste!

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love

Sounds like a very busy morning Sukochi!

We are not going to church this morning.  Last night after I posted about my niece and the hat, I found out from her dad that they (him and the girls) are moving 6 hours away in February/March.  I told him if he on my birthday I'm going to flatten his tires so he has to stay another day.  

Then I got a call from a friend (who is also my son's godmother).  Her husband is in the hospital because he had a heart attack on Friday.  He went into the hospital last night and they are moving him to the 4th floor at 11 a.m. and she needs me to stay with their 4 kids so she can be there.

I will be taking my jersey quilt stuff with me because I need to get that finished.  My son fits right in with them and I'm not above putting a movie on and letting them just chill for a while.

Time to get the squares together.  Gideon is already awake and I want to get over to her.

Love and hugs to all. Brandy

Brandy,  that is really a neat hat that you made, and so quickly too. It is hard to believe you are a virtual beginner at this.   I can completely understand how it touched your heart to have your niece claim it.        Ginny

So happy for the healing and sad she'll be moving away.  I forgot to say great job on the hat, your niece will be taking you with her when she moves.  Sorry about your friends husband, will send up prayers for him and his family.  (((((HUGS)))))

Been busy finishing backings for a couple of quilt tops that get to take a trip today.  It's bad when the backings turn out purtier than the quilt tops!!

Barbara, don't you go cleaning house on my account!!  I won't pay any attention, I promise!  Almost have everything packed and ready to start your direction soon.  Will have to make a  few stops to let the old back rest along the way.  See ya later!

We are taking Mother Christmas shopping. It is easy for her to find lots of reasons on why she should not go, pains in strange places, not sleeping, etc, etc,etc. However..........she is going. This is not unusual for someone who has been ill for a long time, it's easier to do nothing. But today she is going to do something that in the past she loved doing. We are in hopes it will lift her spirits and get her into the holiday spirit, something else she loved. Sometimes you just have to nudge a little to get them moving, because we love her! A lot!
