If I were to be graded on my blogging activity this past year it would be pretty low, near the bottom I think. But I have been busy, so busy I didn't mention what I was doing. There were two important events going on in my life, one was finishing my second book (hooray!), and the second was dieting (Methodist Weight Loss Management), a wonderful program that I can't say enough good things about! Let me tell you about the diet first, Since January 2012, I've lost 125 lbs...really, I've lost 125 lbs!!! I've lost a whole person, and I haven't reached my goal yet, but close. Sorry I don't have a more recent photo, I need to get a new one taken.
Second is my book Urban Views, by Stash Books which is available in June. Urban Views builds on City Quilts, with the addition of triangles. There is also a section called City Challenge which I hope will inspire quilters and guilds to have their own City Challenge.
In my home life there have been lots of changes as well. Melissa has moved to SLC to finish her Master's, she has a new nursing job, and is minutes from sisters Lizzy & Ashlee - awesome for all of them, a little hurty for me. My sons' family just joined him in Okinawa, again awesome for them; a little a hurty for me. I couldn't be more happy for all of them, but within the span of two weeks 5 family members left town & country. Plus Melissa took our dog Mickey, and her cat Minkee. Pinecone (my cat) and I aren't quite sure what to do with ourselves. I think I'll have to adopt a cat for her. Pinecone needs a pet!
Here's to better blogging and a great new year (it's only February - I can say that, right?)
P.S. I lost 125 lbs!!!
