It’s been a long winter and I’ve spent most of my time indoors. Which means, not getting a lot of exercise and consuming more calories than I have worked off. It is time to do something about it. I know many of you have experienced the same thing. I get so involved in my projects that I forget everything else. I love “creating” and reading. I don’t enjoy working out and getting sweaty. But, I know in order to live a healthy lifestyle I must get some exercise, like it or not!
I’m not going on a diet! I eat fairly healthy already and I really don’t eat a lot. It is just that when a person gets no exercise at all they don’t burn any calories either. It is also not good on my heart to be a “couch potato” or should I say “chair potato”. So, because I want to be around a long while longer and I would like to feel better physically, I am going to spend some time during each day getting some sort of exercise. Hopefully I’ll lose a little weight too. This is my Spring Resolution.
And now back to the fun stuff! The library called and I’ve got some more books in. Guess where I am going today! I can’t wait to get started on them. The next author I will be reading is Sue Henry. This series is about Maxine “Maxie” McNab a 60 something Alaskan widow who travels the country in her Winnebago with her dog. Another cozy read. I’ve also got a couple of quilt books coming. I love just looking at and admiring other talented quilter’s work and getting new ideas.
I am also planning my next batch of projects. I have a couple of quilt block patterns in mind. I just haven’t decided which one to start on first. I really like the Spring Basket Pattern. I haven’t seen many quilts made up in this particular basket pattern. It is in the Fon’s & Porter Keepsake Quilting Block Buster. Another quilt pattern I like is Posy Chain. Again it is one I have not seen done up too often. It is one of Marcia Hohn’s patterns in the Quilter’s Cache. I would like to make this one in all different colors using up some of my stash. A couple more fabric baskets are in the planning stages, as well as some other small projects I have in mind too. I can’t wait to get started. Til next time ~ Happy reading & creating!
