I'm still here!

Yes, it has been forever since the last time I blogged. Please forgive me though. I have been through job changes AND bought a house!!! Thus my sewing room was all packed up, moved across town, and re-setup. Before I could set up though kittens were born in the 'sewing room'.. That delayed things a bit more too obviously. But the kittens hav
e moved on to wonderful owners and the sewing room is in full swing. So, let me show you what I've been up to....
This is a cross stitched wedding monogram. The pattern is from the book A Rainbow of Stitches but in the book the monogram was done in all color. That would have bored me about 10 stitches in so I picked lots of colors that blended with our new living room and reminded me of our wedding (one month from our first anniversary!). So this is what took care of the 'sewing bug' while we were moving. FYI, if you like modern cross stitch you will love the Rainbow of Stitches book!

I have had many friends/coworkers that have recently had babies. Thus I have been making many baby quilts! I love making baby quilts because since they're so small it doesn't (usually) take months and months to accomplish. I love the challenge of making something that will perfectly fit into the nurseries and homes of the new little babies..

This 'stripey boy' quilt was given to my coworker for her baby James. I've made at least 6 baby quilts in the past 6 months but I don't have pictures of them all.. Oh well.
Another thing I did recently was I signed up for the Modify Tradition Swap. I had always wanted to do a block or quilt swap and decided this was the one to do first! I made a quilt for mommymae. I was inspired by summer and her favorite color is yellow. I hope she likes it!
I received a beautiful quilt from melodylynn! This picture is one she uploaded to the Modify Tradition group.
Thank you Melody!

Well, with all of this said I'm off to the sewing room to make my sister-in-law another maternity skirt! : )

Woohoo! The first one is getting good use already! Thanks again my wonderful sewing sister.

And I REALLY like that monogram - look forward to seeing it in pride of place next time we visit.

Hi there, I absolutely love your wedding monogram. I have the same pattern and didn't think of using coloured thread. Just wondering what type of embroidery thread you used and how many strands. I know this post is old but I'm hoping you still check it regularly to comment back. Thanks so much!!

So as an alternative to strolling at a continuous pace for say an hour, you'd probably change items up by alternating quick bursts of intense strolling for say a minute followed by a recovery period with slower walking just after each and every intense period. Just continue to keep alternating for 20 minutes to start out and include time when you turn out to be additional fit. You can use interval instruction with all phases on thegreen coffee bean extract to enhance your outcomes.

Also once you do any type of exercising it is strongly advised that you just drink lots of water before throughout and after to keep one's body
thoroughly hydrated.
