I took a break from my Bella Granny Squares quilt.
Maybe, just maybe, I will love it when I pull it back out.
Thanks for your suggestions :-)
In the meantime, I pulled out the leftovers from this project
and sewed up a simple patchwork quilt for my shop.
I only have 1 quilt left in my store.
I feel like I need to hurry up and produce a bunch more!
The first time around, I really felt like these fabrics
needed a touch of black
but it just wasn't right for the photo shoot.
So I just had to make another one
so I could put that notion to rest!
I backed it in Cream Seaside
by October Afternoon
Quilted it with wavy lines.
So fun and fast!
Now it can be found in my little Etsy shop.
I'm hoping to add more this month
but with all of the added time I've been spending in my kitchen
I've had less time with my sewing machine.
Speaking of time spent in the kitchen.....
I finished my Whole 30!!!!!!
Some moments were very challenging, like the weekends.
And some moments were easy peasy.
I had a partner in the process and that is the ONLY reason
why I made it an entire 30 Days!
I have another round of blood work coming up and I'm hoping
for stellar results.
I have had small portions of things like olive oil and apples
with no adverse effects.
I will continue to slowly add these things back in permanently.
Surprisingly I lost several lbs. and quite a few inches off my waist and hips.
I wasn't expecting that!
I would totally recommend doing a Whole 30 to anyone
who is struggling with depression, anxiety, acne, PMS, joint pain,
allergies, asthma, diabetes,
etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
Here's the BUT...and it's a big one!
It doesn't take long for old habits to creep back in.
Apparently, I have not slayed my sugar dragon.
But I will continue to work on not letting my sweet tooth run the show.
Anyway, there is a little update for those of you who have asked for reports.
Feel free to let me know if you have more specific
questions or want more information.
