Surprise! We’ve been delayed again!
Maybe we'll get out of here later in the week? Definitely not tomorrow or Tuesday. But Jim is off tomorrow at least.
I woke up this morning with the compelling urge to make, of all things, a scrappy granny square afghan. Remember those? So seventies looking! But suddenly I think one would look absolutely charming! But I want it in lots of bright colors, which I don't have scraps of, so perhaps today I'll go do some shopping. I'll probably just make this one out of cheap yarn like RedHeart or Caron or something to that effect, mostly likely RedHeart because it's somewhat stiff and indestructible and granny squares really need the support.
I saw a picture of a sunburst granny square and really liked it, so that's probably what I'll do. I think I'm taken with the idea of having all those little miniature “projects” to work on, easy to take with me as I'll probably start packing up my sewing rooms at the house soon… leaving out just what I need to finish the monster quilt, then the machines too will probably go into storage.
I just can't decide… white or black background?
I'm down 8.8 lbs as of this morning! I've made a very sad discovery though. It seems bread may be a trigger food for me. Twice while here I had exactly TWO ounces of bread with a meal, and the following day after both times, I gained TWO entire pounds! It was gone again by the third day of eating Paleo/Primal, but my intent was only to eat this way until I'd lost all the weight I wanted, then gradually introduce (in limited amounts) my regular foods back into my daily meals.
I will definitely be testing that theory more once I've reached my goal, but no more until then! Set backs are not good motivation!
