Reconnecting after all this time

It has been over 20 years and I thought about my friends all the time - where they were at, do they have families, how were they doing. It hurt my heart that I lost touch with them - we were so close. Now we are connected again and I feel whole. It will be great to catch up with them and have them part of my life once more - as adults as friends again. Mary, Lori & Dee - missed you so much and won't lose touch again now that I have it back.

Tomorrow is the big day

Big day for what you ask? Week 6 of maintenance on Weight Watchers - if I am within 2 lbs of goal I officially become a lifetime member!!! 2+ years in the making. I cannot believe it. So, of course, who is STRESS EATING today??? Me :( Cross your fingers.

The Vest...

One trip to the mall with a 13 year old can get you into trouble - sewing trouble. Hence, the vest!! Seemed like a simple project and quick but it was more challenging than I thought. However, it is done and I did most of it on my own (with a little help from Linda at Sew It All and prep work from Mackenzie). I even had Mark try and help to interpret some of the directions.

Pink, purple and green. Stripes. I love the pink lining.

I got to use fusible web for the stripes (which was cool) and practice my hidden stitch (I cannot hand sew worth a damn).

So here it is and will be shipped out this weekend.

It has been so long since I have updated my blog. Well, for 2010, I will be doing more blogging with the focus on my sewing and scrapping projects.

Wishing everyone a great 2010!
