Update and my latest FO!

Yikes, I haven't updated my blog in over a month! I have no excuse except blog neglect... Lock me up and throw away the key!

I just finished this project last weekend and love it! It's from Lion Brand's Vintage patterns for today book (the pattern on the cover) and even though it didn't turn out like the pattern called for I actually love it! I still don't have a clue what I did wrong, but it was somehow something I did when I sewed it together. So instead of a kind of vest, it turned into a kind of shrug. Oh well, I call this my "Happy Accident!"

Doug and I have been really busy with work and trying to get our foster license. I think we are getting close to the end of everything. Fingers crossed that our next visit will kind of at least tell us where we are and what else we need to do...

Weight Watchers at work ended last week and my total weight loss is 27 pounds! I was very happy to finally get past the 25 pound mark! Now I just have to keep watching what I eat and remember this is for life, not a diet and that I can do this, even without the weekly meetings!

My mother in law and I have been having lots of fun painting ceramics and my first piece should be completed this week! There is this cute little ceramic place about 20 mins away from where we live and they have classes and everything and will help you if you need it but the first thing I made was a little fishy for our bathroom. He should be all fired and I can't wait to see him! I'll post a picture once I pick him up! I just finished painting a Tweety Bird which I need to drop off and have him fired and then I'll glaze him and he'll be really cute! There wasn't a lot of detail to him so he wasn't too bad. There are a couple of really neat chess pieces that I want to do for Doug for Christmas but they involve quite a bit of detail and I need to get some kind of magnification to do it with my crappy eyes! LOL

Well, that's it from here for the moment! For my friends who have facebook, don't forget to look me up! I'm on there now!
