Be Enough

Take each day at a time. Plan~ but don't be overwhelmed by the big picture. Take baby steps to your goals and little by little you will get to the place you want to be. Let whatever you do today be enough

Waste Not

so huge sadface. My computer is broken and I'm still trying to figure out how to post pictures and blog from my Ipad. I made another mini quilt out of scraps. Trying to use up all the fabric around my desk before I start a new project and I have 3 baby quilts to make. Lots of mini quilts to make and a fabric stash to organize. Also part of the "waste not" is shopping in the freezer and pantry to come up with a meal plan for this coming week. My challenge is finding meals that I can eat with the 21 Day Fix plan that my family will also eat. This week looks like this:
Sunday- Spinach chicken balsamic dressing
Monday- stuffed bell peppers
Tuesday- Baked potatoe soup
Wednesday- Zuchini boats
Thursday-Chicken salad in wheat pita
Friday- flank steak and salad
Saturday-Vegetable Quiche
We've also rented a U Haul to take all the boxes we've been storing from our move to open up the third bay garage for Avery's car. I  feel a little weird about this. We've kept them 3.5 years. So I hope there is not another move around the corner. The great thing about doing this is I found all kinds of wooden embroidery hoops and some more fabric. Any tips for blogging from your ipad and posting pictures? Thanks

New Sunday Prep

 Tomorrow I start the 21 day fix. I've taken my measurements, made my video, took my before picture- none of which I will be sharing with you. Trust me you don't want to see that %^&$. But I will tell you that I will be exercising EVERY day and all those fruit and veggies containers I've been making will come into play. It takes 21 days to create a new habit and my wish is to create many habits that will lead me to a more healthy lifestyle. Without our health we have nothing. So this Sunday I have prepped our food, laid out my work outfits and planned my workout times. 

Two Mini Quilts finished

 Two mini quilts finished this week. Both are heart themed. Both quilt as you go. Both a joy to make. I heart them:)

Miss this man

It's been two months since my daddy went to be with God. These last few weeks have been hard as I think it is settling in that I'm not going to see him for a long time. He was so funny. A big bear of a man that was so goofy with us girls. I guess you have to have a sense of humor when you live with all women. I love you daddy and man do I miss you.

Weekend recap and Week Prep

 It was a busy weekend here at the Wayne household. I even wore the husky out.  8 miles of walking for us. Isn't she so cute with her head on that white pillow? Not what I had in mind when I purchased said white crocheted pillow
 The scrappy log cabin quilt is growing and the original 20 blocks has now grown to 36. That will make a good lap size or end of bed quilt
 Remember those confetti mini quilts I was telling you about? Well I got one done and another one planned out.

 And now for the week prep..... I've been doing this a few weeks now and the kiddos notice. "Mom, how come you aren't prepping real food for our lunches. We want real food too"
 Normally I pack them a PB&J, chips and cookies. They have asked for veggies and a fruit too.
 That meant lots of chopping and getting all the containers out. Grapes, cantalope, carrots, cucumbers,bell peppers tangerines and apples. Along with prepping food, I've got my workouts planned out and clothes for work picked out and put aside.
"The more organized you are the more freedom you have."
 This just helps keep me on track for the week in all things. Health= mental, physical and financial 2015.

Scrappy Log Cabin Squares

 
 
   A very large scrappy stash has got me thinking of projects to make it go away. As I was working on these scrappy log cabin squares - (20 down 10 to go)-I ended up thinking of a few more projects. My list goes a little something like this:
Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt
Small Coin baby quilt
Confetti mini quilts with embroidery sayings
Mug rugs
Stain glass square quilt
 
That should keep me busy for a while. I hope it gets rid of my four containers of scraps.
