So, I am definitely one to take on too many projects.....anyone who knows me can vouch for that.
(I also don't believe I am alone in that, am I right?)
I even called a friend yesterday to find someone to commiserate with and hopefully get some inspiration on tackling all the totes and bags full of ufo's. It can be a bit overwhelming at times.
On that note....here's my confession time.....
I have started two new hand-stitching projects....what's wrong with me??? lol
One is a Kim McLean pattern called Animal Album. I love her designs, I think this the third one of hers I am doing.
I began with this block...
....sorry, wrinkly and also a dull day for taking pictures.
Well, after almost two blocks done I can say that the background is definitely not working for me. I made the difficult decision to change my mind.
Actually, not a difficult decision. I'd rather change things up now than continue just because I've already "put so much work into it" already.
So I've brightened the quilt up with a white print for the background and started a new block this past week...
Such a dull picture, sorry....again it's a dull day. The block is much brighter in person, you'll see!
New project #2.....
That is just one block of Over The Hill by Wendy Williams. I hope to have the prep-work done for it in the next few days so I can take this one along to a quilting retreat next week.
Here is what I have done so far...
I'd like to share an update on my progress with Intermittent Fasting. I started mid-November in 2018. This has been a surprisingly easy process and it's free.
Here is a picture showing me on the right the week I began, not the best picture but I know that's when I started. The picture on the left is today...
The scale hasn't moved a whole lot. The truth-sayer is my belt, which has moved from the first notch to the fifth....and soon the sixth. I feel like a much younger version of myself.
Lol...I also think this way of life has given me the confidence to embrace my natural hair colour!
People may think that my running is what has instigated the change, but no....I was running two years before starting IF, and while I know that I grew stronger, leaner muscles and vastly improved my cardiovascular health, my fat content hadn't changed. You can't outrun a bad diet.
Today I am linking up with Confessions of A Fabric Addict for Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?.
Have a wonderful Autumn day!
