I am working on quilting a Cal. King quilt. Any hints on working with such a large quilt when quilting on a home machine? The quilt will be beautiful when I am done with it. I was thinking, and I wish I had journaled while I was working on this quilt. Many problems have been faced while working on this project. The resolution of each problem created a new design element in the quilt. I think each one has made the quilt better. Do you journal when you make your quilts? What kind of lables do you put on your quilts?
Well, Easter and a few weeks have raced by. I know I haven't lost weight (gained :( ). I don't have scales at home. I get my weight from my dr. or from my sister's scales. Pants aren't as baggy. It is amazing how much harder it is to breathe just by gaining a few pounds. My elliptical sits with dust on it.
It is time to get moving. Tomorrow I have to move some boxes and take pics of items I want to sell, My yard is blooming and needs attention. One large, cal. king, size quilt needs to be quilted. Also a jaunt to the grocery store. Time with my dogs. Hmmm...squeeze time in for the elliptical. YES! How many calories will I lose?
Does anyone keep track of calories? I think it helps in losing weight. I always believed in the diet and exercise only program. My father had a lung transplant. Prior to his lung transplant he had to lose about 30 lbs. We had to track his calories. We didn't at first. We got in trouble with his nutritionist. Then we kept track of his caloric intake. He seemed to lose weight easier when we kept track of his caloric intake.
Does anyone have a problem with portion control? I see food; I eat food. Does that have anything to do with the "...there are children in China who are starving..." comment? What does a portion look like?
I must say I will be excruciatingly happy when I finish this current quilt. I have many projects to work on. I am looking forward to each one.
