I have not yet realized the full potential of the Butt and Thigh Max. It seemed too easy and I'm not exactly super-buff. But tonight I will make sure there's more tension.

No crafting to speak of, I think after this show I'll chill with the quilting and concentrate on the new biz for the rest of the year. I just can't control the lethargy.

My Butt and Thigh Max came today!!! I haven't used it yet but tonight's the night. Oh, and my kitten's a boy, the first vet was wrong. I'm just glad they figured that out before the neutering procedure.

I started working on Staceyjoy's Olive Bobbles Hat. I'm on the fourth row of bobbles: bobbles are a bitch. I'm doing mine in the Lamb's Pride Aubergine.

I have such a yearning to make something like Ms. Burns' fancy jacket at chicknits. But alas, I've never made anything that fit, so I'm going to have to control myself.

Here is my first attempt at putting an image on my blog. She's the baby that will be mine in a couple of weeks when she grows up and opens her eyes.

She'll be the newest little member of the badcat family.

Today cleaning made me feel better.

On Friday I purchased a piece of fitness paraphenalia off of the TV. The commercial was very compelling plus I waited two weeks after I saw the commercial to purchase it, sort of a cooling off period. I'm really excited, I believe this will solve my cellulite problem, the only thing keeping me from ultra-hotness!

Quilting: The sashing is completed on the polka dot quilt. I'm at an impasse in that the next steps on both quilt require more fabric that I don't have. So I ordered more from equilter last night, I love that place!

Now I have to finish my CA taxes.

Worked on the black polka dot sashing last night. I'm thinking about a mostly white plain border with a couple of the left over blocks in the corners. I'll do the flowering vine maching quilting on the borders in contrasting thread and on the sashing, so cute! It'll be like the quilt equivalent of an ice cream shop in the fifties!

This weekend I took the very exciting step of actually working on two quilts! Made some extremely crappy blocks (that will still be used) for the swap quilt I'm doing with my Mom. The combination of gold tissue lame and stiff transfer images made the blocks turn out pretty bad, but not so bad that the magic of a finished quilt won't overcome it eventually. I also started sewing sashing (switched to a black and white polka dot) onto the 30s print curve blocks. Oh, and I forgot, I put fringe on the turquoise scarf I made for my mom. I was so productive this weekend!

Coincidentally, I also had two detested family dinners this weekend. Could one have anything to do with the other?

I will not be able to do anything else stupid or demeaning at work.
