Wednesday weigh-iin

Not a good week only 1 pound! But that equals 30 pounds gone!!! I know why only 1 pound because of girlie week, but i will take week will be a whole other story.

Anyhoo check out what my mother made for me!!!! Who knew that when my mom volunteered to teach me to crochet that she would jump back into it with a vengeance. She is kicking out crochet projects left and right, If you want to see what she's made go and visit her site. I saw this shawl on a free pattern at JoAnn's and really like it, mom suprised me with it just the other day..

Meanwhile I am still working on my daughters afghan...Not my fault, I had to wait a couple days for some more yarn. I did manage to make another hat for a neighbor's grandson and I totally forgot to take a picture of it. I will get one. I also made a hat for my Aunt that turned out wonderful in a puff stitch pattern...I can't believe that i didn't get a pic of that either...I was kinda proud of that hat. Yeh, I know I suck!! Anyways I have one more skein of the color amber picked out and then border it with some dark blue and her afghan will be finished!!! I am kinda proud of this project, can't wait to show you all when I am done!
Now go over to my mom's site and check out the toys and stuff she has made!!

Hey, 30 pounds is great! And, one lb, or none at all, is good because that means you haven't gained any back. I'm on my way to losing weight, too. I will NEVER weight 105 lbs again, haha, but I need to be healthier.

About your mother: The Lord bless her heart! What a beautiful gift!

A shawl is what I believe Paula made you and it is lovely. I can believe that dealing with Amber Illness can drive you crazy but eventually Your doctors will get to the bottom of it. Just hang in there and send my best wishes to Amber.
