So, some cool news this week! There has been a weight loss challenge at work and the final weigh in was this week and I WON!! The challenge stared right after Labor Day and I lost 7.1lbs and won $125! So cool! The next challenge started Friday and will end December 21st. I have been doing lots of zumba and started a spin class last week and practicing what Jan and I call "dinnerexia" which is just not eating dinner. If I do feel hungry then I steam some veggies.
An update on the craft faire thing. I have 3 runners finished, 2 Christmas theme and one Fall. Oh, and I learned something new! It was painful. I bought the newest issue of Quilty magazine (which I love) and there was an article about binding and it closed the binding with a bias seam. Holy cow. Trying to wrap my head around that was rough. Maybe I just hadn't had enough coffee. I would sew it together and it was all twisted. I think I sewed that seam like a million times. Then I was like I gotta figure this out. I grabbed a scrap piece of binding and once I could turn it in my hands without the written directions then it clicked. It looks so much nicer than the closure I was doing. I can't find the tutorial I had used for that but it was just sewing a straight seam.
