It’s been a while ….

My goodness it has been a long time since I have posted on here! But it hasn’t been a long time since I have been sewing and cooking and knitting and such. I thought I should change the look of this blog too…… sooooo…… how do you like it?

What have I been up to???

Sewing …. I have been sewing so much and loving every minute of it. I took a break for a while when school started back, but now I am back in the swing of things and currently working on my littlest’s birthday dress … it will be so cute, if I do say so myself.

Knitting … I taught myself to knit a couple of years ago, but over the past couple of weeks I have learned more about knitting and have made scarves for gifts and I am about to venture into making hats for my girls. It is so much easier to knit than you might think. Check out knittinghelp.com for free online videos and the best DVD I have seen on the subject is I Can’t Believe I’m Knitting – I got this at my library and it is very well made IMHO (much better than their book by the same name).

Cooking … I’ve been really watching what I have been eating lately and have lost weight! My secret – counting calories. Yes, the old fashioned calories in/calories out “technique” still works wonders. That and exercising :) Eating Well magazine is excellent, as is their book The Essential Eating Well Cookbook — I highly recommend them!

So that is what I have been up to … I will try and post more often than I have been ….

Blessings!

  2. Heather, so great to see you back, blogging! I’m sewing my very first quilt ever, a rag quilt! Nothing fancy, but just the fact that I am using my sewing machine is a big deal. :)

  3. Heather,
    Love the new look of the blog. Great to see you back. I can “almost” call myself a knitter, and now you’ve inspired me to get it going on again:) I’d like to see what you’re knitting these days.
    BTW, I have made several of your twirly skirts and loove that pattern. Thanks!!
