I had this in my retreat bag, but it was one of the projects that I didn't get to. This is a bag of Northcott Oh Canada (and Sesquicentennial) fabric scraps. My intention is to make another one of those slab block quilts that everyone made for the Ronald McDonald houses last year. It's a good mindless project to work on at a retreat. It's back in the bag for next time.

Like I said, there are so many nice runners in the book, I cut one more. I didn't have quite the right bits with me. Too many pieces of one color and missing two of another. When I got home, I cut the two missing bits.

Here is the finished top of the table runner. I just had to finish off that pieced border and add the outer one. Didn't take long. Fabrics are from Northcott Shimmer. Also an alternate for Janury for the table runner class.

I worked on my Kaleidoscope quilt. I worked hard on this thing because I really really want to get it done! The four pieced borders are now together and ready to add to the quilt. These were mostly done, but again - I was missing about 8 black squares!
|Four borders - DONE|
|Corner of Kaleidoscope - DONE|
|Four corners - DONE|

But that's not all. I started off the weekend with this project. A tote bag. The sides were done, the pockets were on, the handles were made but needed stitching. Anyway - it didn't take long and it was completed - even with the plasticore for the bottom!!!

A quick note about food. Now I know why we need sugar in our food. Because it tastes awful without it. Like the burnt steeped tea at Tim's. Honestly - try a regular tea (with the bag in) and not steeped. No need to add sugar. And oatmeal - if you eat the oatmeal on the left - you NEED sugar because it tastes - well, I don't want to write a bad work here. But try the oatmeal on the right - both cooked in the microwave. The steel cut has a much better taste and with a few berries thrown in, it's much better than the one on the left. Going to my last appointment today.

I don't think I lost any weight or body fat this week and I think that dairy or eggs are not all that good for me. While I'm not bloated, I don't feel as super slim as I did last week! And I have hardly eaten any eggs or yogurt. I'm going to play around with that a bit more in the next couple of weeks.
On that note, I've got a load of paperwork and quilting to do today, so I had better get started.
Have a great day!!!!
