Before and after and a few finishes

Most of you know that I have been going to Weight Watchers since March. I love the program, and it has been working well for me. I eat plenty, and am losing weight at a nice steady pace. Thought I might show you a before and after. 38 pounds so far but I do still have about 20 pounds to go....


I made a set of the citrus coasters that I talked about. I did mine on machine though. They are so cute and bright.


And I wanted to make some mittens out of fleece to sell at the shop. I couldn't find any berber fleece (I have since ordered and received some), so I used some that I found at Hancocks.  I messed up the first pair by not adding a seam allowance, so they are a bit small, and if you notice I forgot to flip the logo, so the "N" is backwards (took me a long time to notice that, lol. ) Then I got to thinking that I might not be able to sell these because I'm not sure if the NC logo is a registered trademark, so I will finish these by putting in elastic around the band and adding buttons to the cuff, and give them to someone. They were good practice though.



I also made a few kleenex holders. These are so fun and easy. And they seem to be the best seller at the shop.


I am getting ready to go take my daily 2 mile walk, then go to my WW meeting. The rest of the day I plan to sew. I want to make some of the pumpkin coasters I made last year from a pattern at Brandie's blog.

Later,
WilmaNC

The diet is obviously agreeing with you, well done. And I love the coasters and the mittens. Logos can be a pain, best to create something yourself to decorate the mittens.
