Another Day, Another Pound

Russ and I weighed in yesterday, another 5 lbs for him and another 10 lbs for me! We are doing so well, except Russ says he is starving to death! :):)!

I added a weight loss ticker for him...under the clock.

I am able to see my face emerging from the is a good thing.

Finally...a Finish!

I finally finished something! I made 12 postcards...six of them are already in the mail and no pictures. But here are the last six. They are my hand dyes with foiled pears. I free motioned (not well) quilted around them and then decided they were a bit flat. So added some crystals to jazz them up. The borders are again, hand dyes cut with a wavy rotary cutter blade, fused down and stitched down the middle.

I also finally got the borders on my Orange Crush quilt...nothing like being slow :)
I ran out of border fabric so had to make a design decision (fix a mess up) on the top border. I think it worked out just fine! I will post a picture when I can.

New Diet

Last night for dinner I had 1/8th cup of tuna with a tiny amount of mayo and 2 T of unsweetened applesauce with raspberry...LIFE IS GOOD!! I know it must sound as though I am focusing on food, but that really hasn't happened. I have no appetite, but have to eat something that tastes good goes a long way in keeping me eating.
