Or, at least offset some of the weight I’m likely to gain by sitting at a machine for too long!
I gathered up my Yo Yo supplies and found a neat stackable set of bins that was perfect. I can fit my full size scissors and lay my charm squares flat inside. Got this during Joann’s sale last week at almost no cost given the discount and coupons I had for the sale!
So, my weight loss tip is to pack a lunch and eat at my desk instead of going out for fast food or really anything that would be obtained in a restaurant. Come to think of it … Quilting helps me save MONEY too!! You can NOT beat that!
Here’s my progress on the Yo Yos in Tapestry that I’m making for the Yoyoville quilt (pattern by Bunny Hill Designs).
I love these colors!! And finally, a shot of the trays all stacked and snapped together:
Cute, huh? Will be perfect for any hexagon project I may want to tackle later, after the Yo Yos are done.
Also wanted to show a few gratuitous pictures of the kids from last weekend when we went to a combination pumpkin patch, petting farm, etc… ranch here in Houston (Halter, Inc.). They are open each weekend during October. They also have a playground area for kids, haunted trail, pony rides, pony cart rides, face painting available and sell home made goods along with snacks, drinks and hot dogs/hamburgers.
You can really tell better from this picture in the pumpkin patch that is was quite warm on this Saturday (probably in the upper 90s). And of course we were there in the middle of the afternoon. Luckily, fall weater rolled through the next day and it has been really beautiful lately!
Also received my backing fabric yesterday for my MIL Stars and Stripes quilt. It will be just right! But, I think I need to finish the baby quilt I made for a friend, since the baby is now two months old! How fast time flies when you have to work, cook, clean, bathe, take care of family, maybe sleep, commute, eat, ….
