Lookin Back at my weigh ins...

Back when I first started my blog, I thought I needed to lose weight. Not just me personally, but, with my fabric closet as well. We both were full to over loaded. So, instead of embarrassing myself with my scale numbers in my www face, I chose to hold up a basket containing fabric/projects I need to finish. Check out this earlier post where I hold it up and show my weight at 236 lbs. This contains fabric and flab. So, now I'm going to show you how much fabric/flab I've lost. Yep, it's down to 208! Oh I wish I could say that was all flab I lost, but, alas it's some fabric too. Then again that was the goal and motivation which I did succeed at so it is a win in my book. Yeah Julie!

As I'm sure most of you know, if you click on the labels following a post, you can bring up all those items that relate to
the current post you are reading. That is, if I'm doing my blog job well and am trying to keep these things organized. Ah the joys of using the gray

Over to the lower right you can see the 2 q
uilts I've finished that were in that pile in my basket that I started at the beginning of the year. The Country at Heart and Chelsea's Fat Quarter Quilt were in the basket. The Bloomin' Rose was another quilt I finished. I also managed to quilt a kingsize quilt for a friend and work on some embroidery also.

I love this to do list gadget. It never lets me forget what needs to be done and it also reminds me just how much I have accomplished. That's sometimes hard for me and it's nice to see that wow, I really have been busy.

I wish I had itemized the things in my ufo basket, when I first had this bright idea. But, here goes with the remainder of item "to do" in my basket.

These 2 quilt tops are complete and need to be quilted.
One is an African Coin the other is called Kitchen Roosters.

I thought I needed a patriotic quilt so I made this Old Glory quilt larger.
I've got the fabric and lots of blocks in the basket.

So here I am with my basket in hand and a couple of quilts out and done.
Sorry about the fuzzy picture, it's kinda hard to hold a basket that weighs 100 lbs and then weigh wish.

Every little bit counts - whether it's diet or fabric *s* The quilts look great to me.
