Winter Days

Hello All, 

I always 
seem to get so much done in the winter. I am not really sure why. What about you?

This week I had to turn my attention away a bit from the bloom quilt. I needed to get done block #4 of Purrfectly Pieced BOM. Block of the month. The next one, and final one #5 was in the mail to me. 
Somehow I finished #4 all in one day on Monday. Mainly I finished it because my husband had the day off, which actually worked out good for me. I was able to get some much needed alone time. No cooking, cleaning. 
So just as I finished block #4, my husband comes in with the mail. In the mail was the last block and finishing kit, all the buttons for the kitties eyes, border and backing fabric. 
Today I finished block #5. All the blocks are complete. 
I can start sewing the blocks together now and the kitties shall get their eyes.
it's adorable..just as I thought it would be.
Time to stitch it up and quilt it.
This is all the progress I have on the bloom quilt. Only two unfinished flower blocks. Tomorrow is another day!
This is the old couch I am trying to bring some life to and into this room with this quilt.
the couch is in excellent condition, it's just old. I love the real wood on it. I hope the bloom quilt will help this room. Also the cute pillow I made is from a pattern in Lori Holts 2016 Calendar, the cozy house pillow. I will need to make another cute pillow for the other side. 
Sweet, very sweet. 
I didn't even make the table runner on the coffee table, but it has all the colors in my quilt!
Well next time I blog, hopefully there will be a lot more progress on the bloom quilt . 
On to healthy eating and the 21 day fix. I am maintaining my weight loss. But I need to stick to the clean eating. It is hard, esp with your 83 year old mom, who eats whatever she wants and the hubs a junk food junkie.
Thankfully I have never been over weight, but I had an extra 10 lbs I did not need or want. I exercise almost every single day. I can really see how my body is getting toned. I love it. 

This was dinner, salmon and salad for mom and I. For the hubs who hates fish, I gave him leftover homemade soup with turkey from thanksgiving. Yummy!

Have a great Thursday! God Bless!

  1. Your kitty quilt is just adorable, very sweet!! Love the blooms quilt too, you are really going to town on these quilts, can't wait to see them finished.. I am not a lover of fish either, I am a very picky eater in fact, I have lost 5 pounds since the beginning of the year since I got back on my diet but I have had a few things I shouldn't have, so I am not sticking to it as well


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
