This is my friend Harriett and her quilt. I put the feathers in the border for her. She had quilted all the rest of the quilt.

Diet Challenge on Vacation

I got to go on a ten day Alaska roadtrip! We left from Nenana, went to Glennallen, Valdez, Tok and Anchorage. Although I did eat out five times, twice at Fast Eddy's in Tok, Fu Kung in Valdez, Bombay Deluxe in Anchorage and Golden Corral, I also got some great exercise!

I climbed up a moutain beside a glacier!

I went out in a paddle boat for about 40 minutes!

I hiked another hill!

WOW! I even worked out at a gym five times!

Weight update: Lost .5 pounds.

Total loss 2009: 18.6 pounds.

Since summer has rolled around, I haven't been doing much sewing or quilting. But my daughter and I made this bear for her. She might call it Polar.


I also quilted some feathery borders on a quilt for a friend. I might get a photo of that and post it later.

Diet Challenge Update

This is the mid year update.

My goal was to lose 40 pounds this year, 20 pounds every six months.

I have lost 18.2 pounds for the first six months of 2009!

Yippeeeeeee for me!
