Scrappy Quilt Inspiration

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately.  I have been super busy this holiday season.  Our 10.5 year old keeps me super busy as well.  LOVE all that kid does!  Here's a fun scrap quilt I saw on Instagram posted on allpeoplequilt by @bluenicklestudios.  LOVE all this scrappy goodness.

 
 
 
 
 
 
He was down for the count in the photo above.  At least he is nice and cozy in my tumbler quilt.
 
Here he is below celebrating his 10 and a HALF birthday.  Yeah, Owen.  You amaze me every day.

Moving it Forward Monday --Spillin' It

I used to show you what project I was working on for the week quilt wise.  I have a new passion in life... getting healthy.  I have been slowly gaining weight over the past 20 years.  My brother motivated me on Mother's day with just two sentences...

He said, "Happy Mother's Day."  "I lost 50 pounds." 

Well I can't have that!  He's not going to get all the attention during the upcoming holidays about how great he looks.  LOL.  So I started on a diet.  I lost 10 pounds.  Then I came to a standstill.  Religion has been a big part of my life these past five or so years.  I started to pray about it too.

I came across the book Eat Right 4 Your Type by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo.  The book explains what foods one should eat according to what blood type they had.  I have type A.  Yippee, skippee...  I'm supposed to eat mostly veggies, tofu, fish, no red meat, no pork...  Big changes for me.

I tried it.  Today I'm down 35 pounds!  My quest to get healthy has some fun things that I do now.  I have a lot more energy and I like to take our son on hikes.  We LOVE to swim, but winter will have its limits here in Ohio.  We will go to some indoor pools this winter for fun.

Look at my face yesterday in this pic.  Here I am in my new hat.  It was 60 cents at the local KMart that is going out of business...

Wow! look at the difference in my face!  I'm lovin' it!  I'm a much happier person!

Slow Sunday Stitching

I found another spot of yellow to do, but I moved on to the red anyways.  I'll get that yellow some other day.
