2.249 and tired dogs!

According to the pedometer site from Dorothy, that's how far DH and walked this evening. I am soooo out of shape! I've lost more than 1/2 of the weight I wanted (42 off, 30 to go!) but seriously need to get some of this saggy baggy stuff taken care of. D'oh! Exercise? That should be spelled with 4 letters, lol. I like exercise about as much as I enjoy a glass of water. I DID tho, decide to take the "long route" instead of the short-cut, and I DID think of a walk all on my own. Credit given where credit due. Pathetic? You betcha!

Off to the hot-tub and early bedtime. I've been to a brunch-party-thing all day and have a out-of-town Producer in for a private shoot Mon-Wed. Need to make sure everything is in order for his early arrival. Got any ideas how to keep everyone at the Studio QUIET for 3 days?

What NOT to try!

Each year our family has a gathering of the "Sisters". We bring gifts, we eat, we catch-up on the past year, we eat, we giggle and laugh....oh, and we eat.

This year was a family reunion type of gathering, sometimes it's just "the girls". I decided to make towels with the logo we've been kind of using. I had to stylize the logo a bit to make it work on the towels...and then it didn't even do that well!

First I fused the black hearts onto the dolls then went on and fused web onto the cotton doll shape then tried to fuse it onto the towel. The towel had high nap so it just wouldn't stick well. Ended up doing a buttonhole stitch around the shapes. It looks only OK, but I sure wasn't going to choose another gift!
