Hi friends! Want to start by reporting on the weight loss. Last week I did not even mention it because I only lost 1/2 pound and I was a bit discouraged. But yesterday I did my normal Friday morning weigh in and I lost another 2 pounds. Feeling a little better about that. So far around 8 pounds since the first of the year. Now having that out of the way last night I started sewing the four square blocks for the pillow tops I started cutting out on my snow day.
here. We got the quilting part all squared away but decided that the backing available was not quite what she wanted, so we went on a little road trip to a couple other shops and ended up with this fabric for the backing.
Daughter number two and I both like re-sale and antique shops so we stopped at a couple before heading back home. I found two vintage hot pads that I liked. I have been thinking I would like a few of these to hang above my kitchen cupboards. These are the first two I have bought so I will wait until I find a few more before starting to hang them.
