First up for today... I'm nipping down to Spotlight to get a few good quality threads.
I've been using (predominantly) cheap cotton thread from Spotlight, and the Ngaire (Tutor), yesterday said I really shouldn't be using it ... because it cheapens what I'm making, and it doesn't last as long as, say, polyester.
Also, it's not good for my sewing machine. Well... that's good enough reason for me. I can't be using crap cotton thread in McDreamy!
So, I shall invest in some good polyester!
Once I've done that, I shall come home and read a few of me favourite blogs, then do a bit more prep-work for tomorrow's Patchwork Class.
Get a couple more blocks ready for sewing I think.
I'm going great on the 'diet' front too. There have been a few temptations this week, but almost every time I've felt like something sweet I've managed to not deviate from me path.
I DID have a couple of biscuits on Monday, but I was ever so good and stuck to what I had and didn't go in for more.
So... I'm really happy with myself.
I hope everyone else in our little Weight Loss Support Group is doing well? Don't forget to check in on our Facebook Group and tell us all how you are doing!
Sandra... you are the exception.. you can gain weight and grow a healthy, happy baby boy! I'm so excited for you and your hubby. Roll on December.
Talking of babies, Bex is doing well... no dreadful morning sickness, just a few queasy moments so far.
So all good here!
Well... I let me fingers do the walking, and rang around various places to find what brands of cottons they had.
JOY: No one here has Rasant threads.
So, I went to Spotlight and got a few Gutermann threads, then I went to Fabricland in Pakakura and got some Mettler threads from there.
The Mettler threads are a bit cheaper, and they have a much larger variety so I shall probably stick with Mettler threads from now on.
Time for some lunch, then some blog reading I think.
The day is going as planned. Read a few blogs and feel good about that.
It's so nice to do a bit of a catch up.
Dinner. Well I can feel myself teetering ... maybe I will have some takeaways, but be careful how much I eat. I've been EXCELLENT ALL DAY, so .... depending on what the family want, I will have some I think.
End of Day: another really good day done and dusted. Dinner was nice, but not so wonderful that I want to do it again too soon.
