I'm So Excited...

As you may know, I've been working to lose some weight. I get a reward for each 10 pounds! The first was a book, the second was a PC game. I finally reached my mini-goal of 30 pounds and I was planning on taking a quilt class. However, two weeks ago, I discovered there was a new LQS with a demo/presentation/BOM for Eleanor Burns "The Underground Railroad". It was so timely because I have been coveting the book quite a bit the last few weeks. Not to mention I find that time period so intriguing! You can read all about what is offered here...
The Quilting Barn. Anyway, it sounded so great and informative that I begged my hubby to let this be my reward... keep in mind, that means I went from one class to twelve. And from a store down the street, to one quite far away. Well, he finally said YES! He called to reserve my spot tonight and I'm so happy! It sounds like so much fun, with the re-enactment actress and everything. I can't wait! It is still over a month away, but I'm so excited I just had to share the news. However, hubby did suggest that my next reward be on the small side. :cP

I finally decided what to add to Hailey's block for the Round Robin I'm in. I hope to find time to do that this weekend. I still need to set up my bedroom for "school" before Monday though.

I'm making that slow and steady progress on Gentry's quilt... P thru Z are finished! And the cross-stitch is over half way done. I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel!

And I want to apologize to all of you wonderful ladies that I haven't been posting on your blogs lately. I do take a few moments to stop by look, just haven't had much time to reply, so please forgive me. I'll be better when things slow down a bit, I promise!

Hope you have a great time at the workshops! You will have to post about them. I also like your idea of rewarding yourself after 10 lbs. I might have to try that!

You do notice who designs the website for the Arlington Quilting Barn, don't you?
