Woven Star

I missed posting last week because there really wasn’t much to share. I haven’t been spending much time in my sewing room but I have made a little progress on the Woven Star quilt from Debby Brown’s Color Blocks challenge from November.

I decided I didn’t want to do all the sashing strips recommended in the pattern so my quilt will be smaller

Here’s a progress shot, I still need to piece all the blocks together…then I’ll decide if I want to add borders

As for the weight loss qal, I’ve still been keeping track of the blocks but I haven’t made any progress losing weight! LOL Ugh… the struggle bus is real 😦

I’m getting out of the house today to go to lunch and a show with some of the ladies in my neighborhood. I usually shy away from these things because I feel so awkward in big groups but I’m pushing myself to get out of my comfort zone. We’re going to see “Menopause the Musical”… Ha, I’m sure I’ll be able to relate LOL

I’ve been staying up late and getting up early to watch the Australian Open. Luckily when I got my new Pixel 6 I had to upgrade to a new Unlimited plan that happened to come with Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu so I’m able to watch all of the matches on ESPN streaming once they stop covering it on their regular cable channels. I’ve really been enjoying the Ladies matches this year, the matches have been very competitive.

And as far as football, I’m really happy with the teams that won yesterday! I wanted the underdog Bengals to win (I really like Burrow) and I’m ecstatic that Rodgers & the Packers have been knocked out. Today I’ve got my fingers crossed for Tampa Bay and Buffalo.

Oh and I almost forgot – I formally turned in my notice to retire this year!!! My last day will be April 1st, no joke!!! It’s so exciting but also frightening…wish me luck :-p

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That’s all for now, have a great rest of your weekend!

  1. I like your quilt. Good for you for pushing yourself to do something out of your comfort zone. That is hard to do. The weight loss is a hard struggle, but every day is a new day, or at least that is what I tell myself.. I love retirement, it has been 6 years now and great, I do have to keep myself on a schedule. Enjoy.
