Two of my larger Art Quilts have been added to my Etsy shop. A Centered Life features vintage and designer fabrics. Dogs & Dots is a whimsical medallion quilt. The SHOP can be reached by clicking on the quilt bottom in the sidebar. Check out Off the Wall Friday. More quilts to come as I keep on stitching. Happy Quilting!
Three new mini quilts are now it my Etsy shop. Just click the SHOP button on the side bar and I keep stitching. I will have two more Art Quilts going in this weekend. Stitching is really helping with the weight loss. I have lost 7 pounds. This is getting exciting. Hope you have a great Labor Day Holiday and Happy Quilting!

I may have discovered the secret to weight loss. Quilting!!! I was talking with a friend the other day and she was telling me she lost 40 pounds. Wow, I was impressed-I could stand to do that. Her secret is eating less than 50 carbs a day. Well, I thought I could do that. Yes, but I love sweets and especially in the evening while watching TV. Then I discovered a box of Halloween fabrics. Maybe the answer. I started quilting some novelty prints. Made a couple of Snack Mats. Hand quilting while watching TV has helped greatly. I finished two little mats and decided to add them to my etsy shop. The reopening of the Familypatchworks shop is underway. The shop has been empty for a few months. Were does the time go? I'm getting into the routine of quilting in the evening and I've decided it was time to concentrate on the shop offerings. I've added some past items and plan to add more mini quilts that can be used as gifts, table toppers, wall hangings, mug, snack or candle mats. I, also, have some Halloween fabrics.
You can get to the shop by clicking on the SHOP quilts in the sidebar.
Oh, I stared the "50 carbs or Less A Day" on Sunday 8/23/2020. Lost 3 pounds to date.

Short Stuff is now in the 1st Grade and he will begin school on Thursday August 27th. He is in the BB group. Yes, his school has an AA group (last names A-M), BB group (last names N-Z). Two days in school 3 days home. Wednesdays are clean the school day for the Thursday-Friday group. The 3 days home will be on-line learning with Wednesday a teacher guided on-line learning day. This will be a challenge for everyone. Lunch will be served in the classroom with orders taken in the morning. Parents will not be allowed in the classroom--I guess that means no class parties this year. A very unusual year ahead.
I have been working with our little 1st grader all summer. That has been a challenge too. He is ready for school. I hope he is not disappointed with the new system. He has normally been a bus rider, but this year we decided to drop off and pick up.
