I weighed in this morning, because I forgot to yesterday morning. I'm up 200g! I think that's around half a pound. Does that mean I have to rip apart two of my blue and cream blocks?? *lol* I don't think I'll be doing that, but I'll be taking the WW points more seriously this week. I haven't been that good, I'll be the first to admit it.
Here's a picture of where I got to yesterday with the Winnie the Pooh quilt. You can see where I'm heading with the borders now. I actually ran out of the navy fabric. I'm not sure if I have any more in the stash boxes, so I'll have a look for it this morning, if not, I'll get some at the quilt store tomorrow. No guilt about that now we're off the fabric diet.
I didn't really pay much attention to the dimensions of this quilt before I started working on it again, and it's actually quite large. Well, it's long actually. It's going to finish up over 100 inches long, and I can't remember how wide. It's going to be a challenge to quilt on the domestic machine, but I'm looking forward to it.
Thinking about the fabric diet, I have been getting some great hints from you all, I really like the sound of the Stashbusters philosophy ... that the three B's are legal buys ... Backing, Borders and Batting. I think that's a fabulous idea. I don't have a lot of big yardage that can be used for borders and backs. I'm always happy to piece backs like our good friend Bonnie Hunter, but borders are another issue for me.
Now I just wouldn't be Aussie if I didn't mention how sad I am about the passing of Steve Irwin. He was a man who lived life to the full, was a wonderful ambassador for Australia, and for all wildlife. I feel so much compassion for his very young children, and for his wife, that incredible and enthusiastic man was their world. Australia will miss him terribly.
