2nd rag quilt




Here is the rag quilt I have made for my sister-in-law's grandbaby. I have two finished now and I am in the process of trying to find a box to mail them in. They live in Nevada. I still have two more to make. She is being blessed with 4 grandbabies this year. Two boys and two girls. These are all flannel and so soft. I am currently cutting the fabric for the third one.




I am trying to eat right and not have any between meal snacks. It's hard to do since I have been getting hungry between lunch and dinner each day. If I keep busy maybe I won't go looking for something to eat. And if I am really hungry I need to find something healthy to eat rather than crackers or pita chips. I always look for something quick and satisfying. Since I have no fluid in my band for 8 months now I am finding I am slipping back into old habits. So I am trying to only go for something that will nourish me and hold me over until my next meal. What are you all planning for the Memorial Weekend? We don't have any plans this weekend. The forecast is that it will rain all weekend except Sunday. We've lived here in Oregon for almost 9 years now and this has been the longest winter/rainy season so far. I am so ready ( being a Southern California girl) for sunshine and warm weather. But you can't beat the green here in Oregon. I love it.


I also want to thank everyone for their nice comments about my lapband troubles. It makes me feel so good to know I have friends out there in cyberspace.

I love that quilt! I love how the pink w/brown squares are diagonal one direction and then pure pink the other diagonal. Keep up the great work!

I love the quilt. How nice and cuddly for a new baby. You are keeping very busy! I eat more in the bad weather months when I have to be inside more. Hopefully now that Memorial day is here we'll finally get some nicer days. I'm at my camper and hoping for a sunny weekend.

I'm trying to control snacking as well. I do fine all day long but I struggle after dinner. Going online and chatting with bandsters or reading blogs is the only thing that seems to change my mind.
