I finished this wallhanging and it is up on the wall. It is so beautiful! I need to add bead eyes to the hummingbirds.

I have so few finishes this year, I have been reading instead of quilting.

Diet Challenge Update

I had to do some rethinking and get back on the wagon. All that ice cream caught up with me! I was up six pounds from the lowest this year and was very distressed. But I have now lost those six pounds and am ready to continue losing this summer.

I made a list of favorite healthy dishes and went shopping for ingredients. I made oatmeal bread today, a good bread with lots of fiber.

I discovered I now weigh 10 pounds less than what is listed on my drivers license!

Total loss: 32 pounds!

Here are my quilt designs from my red white and blue sampler.  Which do you like?  These blocks have been made with the Friday Block Party group.



And a new photo of our family.

The brownish material came with the kit and I put it on, hoping it would look better than I imagined it would.  It didn't.  I put on an almost solid black and I think it is ok now.  It will look smashing when I have it quilted.

Friday Block Party





Weeks 16, 17, 18 and 19!  I did these today, I took the day off from what I need to do, what I should do, what I have to do, and only did what I WANTED to do!

Nenana Ice Classic 2009



This is a video of the ice breaking up on the Tanana River here in Nenana.  I was there!  The person leaning out over the water is me and I am talking the most in the background (I was on the phone to my mom).  It was so exciting!

Time was 8:41 p.m. May 1st, there were two winners, one from Galena, one from Juneau.  The jackpot was $283,000+.
