Well here in Amarillo we recieved a little over a foot of snow and I have had plenty of time to sew and stitch. Hubby has been happy getting an overdose of old westerns, currently he is watching "The Professionals" with Lee Marvin, Burt Lancaster and Claudia Cardinalie. I am busy working on my free BOM from The Raspberry Rabbits website and trying to get it finished by tomorrow because she will put out a new one on monday and the old will be gone. If you read my blog it is I love all of her stuff and she is so good to put out the free stuff. I am working on something special to send her to thank her for all my freebies.

The pillows above are two different interpretations of her free "12 days of Christmas" pillow. The redwork one was done by a blogger in Norway and mine is on the right. The original is the blue one that was done by The Raspberry Rabbits blog owner. I put hers at the top as it is the original.
I still havent started the weight loss program but plans are still the same. I did join Golds Gym and will be able to swim and exercise and will hopefully start the Weight Watchers program on wednsday. Not much else to say or show. Will hopefully post tomorrow with my finished BOM the raspberry rabbits site.

New BOM from Jenny of Elefantz - BOUQUET

Hello again, wow 2 posts in one day. I am on a roll friends but I have to share the next two BOM's with you. I followed Jenny of Elefantz all last year with her Shabby Roses BOM and she has created a new one for this year. This one is going to be as pretty as the Shabby Roses one and I can't wait to start on it. Be sure to go over and have a looksie and tell her Barbara sent you. I have posted the button on my sidebar under BOM's.


I can't believe it has been so long since I posted, but my vow for the New Year is to post at least weekly from here on in. I am hoping that everyone has had a wonderful holiday season and ready to get into the New Year with a bang. I have several things I am hoping to do with the NUMBER 1 being that I have have to lose weight. I will be joining Weight Watchers in the morning and also signing up for Curves. My goal is to lose at least 30 lbs by June which I think is a pretty measurable goal, it is only 5 # a month and if I am able to lose more than all the better.

My Goal #2 is to start saving more and spending less. I have to 6-shelf bookcases full of material and I plan to use it more and not buy as much. I have already pulled out fabrics to do 2 quilts with and have plenty of at least the material for one of my latest Quilt BOM's. In my next post I will tell you about one of them.

Every Wednsday I will post about my weight loss journey so there is my weekly post that I am naming Weight Watchers Wednsday. Take care my friends and may your journey in 2010 be the best.
