Losing weight is my dream, weaving is my hobby

Hi Friends, The story behind my user name is based on the fact that I do weaving. I do some loom weaving n& own 3 looms but right now I am caught up in basket weaving & pine needle baskets, sweet grass baskets & tho it looks easy. It isn't, at least for me. I couldn't buy the sweet grass because it was SOO expensive so I grow my own & I am having fun doing it. I spent the summer working on what they call an Inkle loom. Just a small loom that makes straps. A few of us from our club who stayed here (snowbirds go north) made what we called Inkle babies for the upcoming AZ Federation Dinner in April. We made about 200 & we made their faces from a piece of stocking & added beads for the eyes. Then I made hair. Some babies have little hair, others have braids & the Grandmas have gray hair piled up in a bun. Maybe I can get a picture sometime & put it on the site.
I have always been "accused" of always smiling & happy. Thats the other part. I decided a long time ago to alwys smile because then people would wonder what I am up to. LOL. Thanks for asking.

I can see, that until I really understand all of this program, my weaving will have to take second place but that is OK because this is my priority!.

My Goals:
OK. I realize that for right now that I am going to work at making maintaining a way of life. I only needed to go another 11 lbs to attain my self imposed Goal Weight. I have had some hard knocks with my health & so have remained right at 161 for too many weeks now. So lets see how I can maintain & perhaps when I get feeling better I will tackle those last 11 lbs.


My Program:
My primary exercise is Aquaroebics & some water jogging. I do everything in water up to my neck & that way my spine can hang & it really relieves my back pain.

    That sounds like a wonderful idea. I might even be open to some volunteer work myself.

    We will probably move in toward the beginning of December. Will be selling our bigger home in Glendale, but I'm not going to stress myself out getting the stuff I can use transferred over to the Sun City home. Had enough stress already!

    Looking forward to meeting you in person! Hugs, Eve

    Thank you for your comments on my blog. I am not being ungrateful to the Spark Staff and I feel that the site serves a valuable purpose but that a lot of the people who it could really help are being frightened away by the problems caused by the changes. After all the fact is that the more members that belong to the site, the more money can be charged for advertising and the longer the site will stay free!!

    I don't want much for Christmas, I just want the person reading this to be happy ...

    Friends are the fruit cake of life- some nutty, some soaked in alcohol, some sweet, but mix them together and they're my friends.

    Merry Christmas mate !!
