Since mid March I was away 5 weekends and 1 week for either dance competitions or soccer tournaments. I had great visits from family members over a 6 weeks stretch. (gearing up for round 2 in 1.5 weeks.) Not too mention Mother's Day, Father's Day, anniversary, all the year end school, dance and soccer wind ups, moving our son back from university, &birthday celebrations. I now have a 19yr old, 16.5 yr old and 12 yr old. We are finally out of elementary school!!!!!
Another thing I have been busy with is exercising. I have a friend that is a marathon runner and very fit. So I bartered with her. If she got me exercising and getting fit I would make her a quilt. I wasn't after a big weight lost, but rather getting rid of the sluggishness that I always felt. So far since April I am doing fairly well. I walk about 15-20 km a week, which might not sound much to some, but great for me. I am also doing weights and a mini circuit she set me up with at home. (I don't like gyms).
I love walking along the Bow River, steps from our house!
This is her quilt top almost complete (need to take picture of completed top!!!
I started making my own bread too!! well on days it is not too hot!
Now days I am in the garden lots, trying to tackle the weeds. (think I am loosing)
Until next time,
Happy sewing or enjoying the sunshine in your backyard/patio!
