March Already.....

Well, I have been getting myself organised....
Unfortunately I haven't been able to fit in computer time until now. The good thing is part of my getting organised was to make time for myself and get fit and healthy. I can report that I am succeeding better than I expected. I signed up for the Michelle Bridges 12 week body transformation and in 6 weeks I have lost 7.5kg and a whole dress size....yippee !!!! I am in it for the long haul. I have about 25kg more to lose. I have made a life change for myself and my family. We all have tons more energy and we are happy....
 
Quilting has become more enjoyable too. Because I am stronger, my back doesn't ache as much and I am able to stand all day with no problem. So last week I made this cute quilt. a jelly roll race quilt with giant applique flowers. I topped it of with custom quilting to enhance the quilt....
 
 
 
 
 
My niece Annalee came to visit with us for a couple of days last week. What else would you do when visiting your crazy quilt obsessed Aunt....make a quilt of course. She is so clever. This is the first time she has ever sewn. I'm so proud.

Photo: Quilted and bound ready to head to Perth. I had a great time helping my niece Annalee make this cute little lap quilt.  She had never sewn before. I think she did a fabulous job ...I think I may have corrupted her...oops...lol  #longarmquilting  #patchwork #charmsquares
 
 
Happy Quilting
Leanne xo
