The only thing I have accomplished this past week was completing 2 dishclothes.  I won't bore you with pictures of them since they are the same patterns that I have been doing in the past.

I wish I had completed more fibery goodness in the past week.  Unfortunately I was busy every night this past week and only had about one hour per evening to do any type of crafting.  Hence the reason I only got 2 dish clothes done.

Hopefully this week will be a bit slower paced but it starts out with a bang.  I need to take my youngest chi-weenie to the vet right after work on Monday for his early check up and shots.  His vet is about 20-25 minutes away from our home.  By the time I get home it will be close to 7 and that doesn't leave much time for dinner and crafting.  So lets hope the rest of the week doesn't fill up as quickly as last week did.  I really want to CRAFT!

Family day is today.  We are doing it at my house.  We are going to BBQ hamburgers/ hotdogs and I am making home made macaroni and cheese (low fat/low calorie) and I made a no bake cheesecake for desert.  Also low fat/ low calorie.  I am still doing well on my weight reduction.  To reach my goal will probably take up to 7 months.  But it took me 10 years to gain all this fat so I figure 7 months to get rid of it is not so bad.  Even my hubby said that his pants are starting to get a bit loose on him.  He is not overweight but it wouldn't hurt for him to loose a few pounds too.  My mom and Daughter are also doing well.  We use My Fitness Plan and love it.  All three of us have dumped 10 pounds a piece.  WOOHOO

Happy Crafting!


  1. Family day sounds great. Hope next week is calmer for you. Take yarn with you while you're at the vet, in case you have a wait.

  2. Sometimes its hard to find time for everything and our crafting normally bears the brunt of hectic weeks. Hope this week is slower but it certainly starts off busy.

  3. Even without the crafting it sounds like you're having a very successful week! Have fun with the family today!

  4. Hope this week has been a bit calmer for you! And 2 dishcloths are still 2 dishcloths!

  5. Much kudos to you for getting out there and devoting time to your health!
    The BBQ sounds so delicious!
