Hi guys,

Well I have built up the courage to do some quilting………this is completely new to me. My hubby got me a subscription to the Art of Quilting mag so after receiving 16 issues I thought it was time to have a go…….so with issue 1 I did the below:


I have just released the bottom right corner is the wrong way…….OH NANAS!!!!! It gives it character!!!

So I could not stop there I had to have a go at issue 2:


I still have a lot of practicing to do but I think this will come when I do the last square trusting my luck….LOL!!!!!

So I looked at the next issue and thought this was a bit hard but I have managed to do it and it looks like the picture in the mag…….well after a few pints but I am proud of it……….


So I have done my first 3 squares what do you think??????

Hubby made the below as the recipe says they are slow releasing…………..we have done well this first week for watching what we eat and the personal trainer…….


Fruit flapjacks. I have lost 3lb this week and I have found I have muscles I never knew existed!!!!! I think I will have to try the fourth square tomorrow.

Luv Jane XX
