I'm back at it.

Hi everyone, I hope you followed me from Quilting Newbie.

I had a really good weekend. Sunday I met up with T and 32.5. I made us some munchies. I'm not really much of a cook, but I am trying to change that little by little. Anyway here are some pictures of the goodies I made.









I served a ham ball (thanks mom for the recipe), a warm artichoke heart dip and a veggie pizza made on a Pilsbury cresent roll bottom.  I was not really very fond of the Pilsbury pizza, I found it a little rich for my taste.  I did however LOVE the artichoke heart dip and the ham ball.  I so hope that artichoke hearts are healthy I think I eat them everyday. 

While the three of us munched on the goodies we discussed how we would set up our upcoming quilting round robin.  There are 7 of us involved.  (HOLY SMOKES...the pressure...lol)  First we decided that we would each make 7 12.5 squares.   So basically we are making one square for each person.  We can choice any pattern we like...that way people that are new to quilting won't feel intimated with having to do a pattern that is too hard for their comfort level.  Next we decided on a theme and we went with a colour theme.  Purple and Cream.  Of course we had to name our little adventure in quilting so it is going to be called the Purple and Cream Dream.

This weekend I was not very faithful to my exercising.  Today I jumped onto the treadmill with a ton of vim and vigor.  I walked 5 minutes and then jogged (or a more accurate description is walked fast) for a minute.  I lasted 60 minutes.  I was happy with that.  My treadmill is old and has been thru many many moves so it is not very accurate anymore so I am not sure of the distance.  I will have a better idea of my distance this weekend with I get my butt kicked by Jillian 32.5.  We workout together most weekends up at the community centre.

Well, I think that is a pretty good post for new blog.  Take care.
