I am coming out of the the saying goes LOL :)

I have decided to come out of the closet. I have joined Weight Watchers! So far in 8 weeks I have lost 2 pounds. Well it is a slow start. Exercise seems to be a problem, as the muscles just seem to get so tired. I still think it is due to the second car accident. Took 4 years to get back a lot of energy after the first. It is now 2 years from the second one and I am still sooooo tired. On the upside I did take a before photo just not sure if I want to post it anywhere or not but when I get done losing the ton of weight I need to lose. I just do not know how I became this size other than the fact that with the car accidents everything turned to flab and the weight gain followed. I think Steph likes Belly Dancing showed her my workout dvd tonight we had fun.

It was another beautiful day. Work was long. I keep thinking I should try and find another job but when I send out applications no one ever calls back. I did find out the college course I took does offer resume and career help. Maybe in the spring I will actively search again. I am doing a craft fair at a Civic Center this weekend. I am excited, this should be a good show. Now if the anxiety goes away I will have a good time.

Such a Beautiful Day

Today was such a beautiful fall day. It would be wonderful if these days would last. Cool in the morning and warm during the day.
And what about those Phillies, WTG on the Pennant.
Work was soooooooo busy today. Didn't slow down until it almost 3pm. Days fly by, almost to fast.
No quilting, no card making, just spending tooooo much time on the puter after work, seems the nights are just flying by also but the blog is taking shape. Nice music to listen to, weather, books, all fun, fun and more fun.

What a beautiful day it was here almost 50 degrees. I still have a sore tooth. Say lots of prayers am dentist phobic. I bought the Nice People Nice Things quilt from Helen at I can't wait until it comes. Work went well, anxiety is a little lower, which helps as work can get pretty tense at times.

My Focus Needs to Change

Wow I found this free software that will let me type and do what I want in my blog post and not even be on the internet so that when I do go online it will post and publish my blog. The program is and it was free. I found the program on I have had the flu since Thursday.

I am feeling a bit better but my tooth is still sore. The anxiety has just kicked in full force must be worrying over an appointment I have coming up. I guess it is going to be fine in 09. I just have to focus on that thought.

On the upside I am setting up my quilting space earlier than January because when life throws you scraps you make quilts right. I am realizing that i have just way to much stuff so i need to get rid of some things, which means I can have more room for fabric, scrapbooking, rubber stamps and books.

I have realized with the anxiety being rampant I need to start journaling more to get all this stuff that rambles around in my brain. See all the stuff we carry around with us whether it be physilcal object or worries bogs us down. There are so many others with more problems greater than what we carry. It is at that point where journaling, talking with others and having a good friend to talk to helps. As well as leaning on Jesus and His angels to carry us through the burdens we bear.

IT'S SNOWING!!!! Well big fluffy flakes and they won't last supposed to be 58 for Halloween. But it is pretty.

I also found the free software and look what it can do really will save space on the website when putting more than one pic online. I can combine them into a collage.

I must really need to talk today as look at how much I have typed.

Well you all have a great day and God Bless each and everyone of you.

Quilts I have Made

Not Feeling Well

Today I became sick on the way to work. I was going to try to stay there but...the main boss said I should just go home, so I did. I am really glad I did had a 2 hour nap, as well as going to bed fairly early tonight. One thing about being home sick one has lots of time to surf the web and find all sorts of freebies. There are tons of patterns on the internet, and lots of free ones. I love Eleanor Burns patterns.

Tomorrow it is going to rain, at least it if I am going to be sick on my day off it might as well rain.

Snow is in the forecast here, maybe Sunday or Monday.

Can't wait for January

It's time to start getting ready for January. No more taxes to do so... what ever will I do? I am going to quilt again in my spare time. First projects will be the UFO's and I saw the neatest blog on what to do with orphan blocks. I can put them all in the same quilt.
I bought this quilt kit from a shop in Silver Bay and it is my starter quilt for the New Year. I will then proceed to the ufo's. It has been 3 years since I have been able to do any quilting, I am excited.

I have discovered blog land

This is so cool. I have discovered quilting among the bloggers and lots of patterns, ideas, and swaps.
