I missed my latest weight loss deadline. No flowers for me. I set another goal, though. Hopefully I can meet the new one.
I don’t quite feel like eating today. My lack of appetite is in no way related to the weight thing. I’m just not hungry yet. I had a banana that I didn’t want for breakfast. Considering the fact that I didn’t want it, it was surprisingly good. Usually, I can’t force myself to eat when I’m not interested. Still, I needed something, and fruit seemed to be the least of all the evils in the house. I should really take a leaf out of my friend Christy’s book and get rid of all the junk.
I’m going to Michigan next month to see the Purple Lady. She just turned 91. I promise I’ll come back with pictures.
I’ve been trying to come up with new designs to embroider. I’ve already finished two stamped embroidery projects. Wait. Does that make sense? Maybe I should explain that I stamp an image on the fabric and then embroider it. Better? Yeah. So I finished this really pretty swirly pattern with hearts:
and this one showing a tree in the four different seasons:
I’m going to make a mini quilt out of the tree panels (which are only about two inches across, maybe two and a half), and I plan to make some sort of book cover (journal or photo album) out of the swirly one. I have no idea what to do next, though. I took some yellow gingham I had to church with me yesterday so I could experiment with stitching on that during church, but the results weren’t very pleasing. I need a real pattern — to color in the lines. Maybe I’ll have to draw my own designs. The ones above are from Stampin’ Up! (That’s not me being excited. The company just happens to have an exclamation point at the end of its name.)
Well, it’s not quite noon, and I really need to do something productive today. Maybe laundry. Sigh.
