I've been feeling rather guilty the last day or two, not commenting on some of my friends' blogs.  It's not that I don't love them, just that I really don't love their Fugly Fabric, and, well, there were threats of having some delivered if you dared to make a comment ;o)  If you fancy giving a good home to some unloved fabric, however, pop over to see the linky party that Lucy's hosting. 

Finishes This Week: 

The Double Decker iPad Cover: 

A skirt for mum (sorry, no photo, it'll be a few days until photographer, model and skirt are all in the same country!) 

Signature blocks for both Sew Bee Joyful and Piece Bee With You: 

In Progress This Week: 

Block 8 of the SHQ QAL completed, only 4 more blocks to go!

That blinking rainbow cushion... 
February's Piece Bee With You block 

To Be Worked On This Week:

Japanese x and + blocks for swap 
Finish the bag I was working on 2 weeks ago 
Start on FTLOS swap small item (as a couple of the fabrics for the main item are on back order) 

Weigh In Progress: 

Weight loss goal:  26 lbs / 11.8 kg  

Stage: 3 weeks complete

Week's loss: 2 lbs (0.9 kg)

Total loss: 13 lbs (5.9 kg)

Distance to goal: 13 lbs / 5.9 kg 

Exercise done: Running up and down the escalators at the station x 5 
                           Walking up and down the 120 stairs at work x 9 round trips, plus multiple little jaunts between the 3 floors we work on 
                           Walk to/from work:  5 @ 8 miles (12.8 km)  total and @ 2 1/2 hrs total 
                           Lunchtime walks x 2 @ 45 mins solid walking, plus 2 shorter times

Total time exercising: about 4 hours walking 

Now that things have calmed down a bit, and I have nowhere I have to be for several weekends, I'm going to break the Wii Fit out again.  Although I don't have a hard and fast target date, I'd like to have shifted the remaining 13lbs in the next 6 weeks or so in time for my trip to Ireland.  Hopefully I can keep up the 2lbs a week now that I'm in phase 2 of the diet...

  1. You go girl! Keep up the good work and that weight will come right off!

  3. Woot! Great job with your exercise! :)

  4. Glad to see you out of fugly enforced hiding... lol

  5. I think I need to say Piece!!! be with YOU with all that exercise, sewing, working and weight loss.
    Love and Hugs

  6. Stuff the patchwork, am totally in awe of that weight loss and exercise regime.

  7. you must be feeling fantastic losing neary 6K - it'll be very noticeable - well done you..

  11. Hey, well done all round. Love the fabric on that iPad cover - very very cool.

  12. I feel quite exhausted - I need some cake! I also feel very guilty - I haven't done any exercise for a fortnight - I think my circulation has come to a grinding halt.

  13. Are you Wonder Woman in disguise? No, really, are you? I promise not to tell.

    Amazing work as always. I want to be exactly like you when I grow up. :)

  14. Well done!! I'm in awe, no doubt like everyone else who knows you. Talented and able to loose weight, now, that is impressive! I've noticed the fugly fabric business and you have to wonder why people have fugly fabric in their stash. Why would a person deliberatly buy such a thing? I personally have nothing but beautiful fabric. Lots and lots of beautiful fabrics. Keep up the good work. Hugs

  15. So it's safe to comment here? I'm very impressed with the exercise 120 steps? I'm out of breath after 26!!!!

  16. That's a great loss this week! The Wii fit is a great idea, I should dig mine out of the cupboard I think!


Thank you for stopping by, it's lovely to meet you :o)
