Affectionately known as the "Cat Lady" Chelsey has 3 cats that keep her company in her home town.
I cross-stitched her a picture for her desk -- I found the pattern on Pinterest and adapted it for 3. The Dresden plate topper was supposed to be a mug rug but it is a little bigger. The cat silhouette quilt is also made from a picture off of Pinterest. My version is going to be black and cream with 6 cats on it. Hopefully it will be ready for quilting this afternoon. I might actually finish a quilt on time this year.
Exercise -- something that stays on the 'top burner' for me this year. I try to tell myself ,'one hour of exercise a day leaves me with 23 hours for other things. One Christmas gift that has been helping me this year is this:
We got a great black Friday deal and got family members this for Christmas - a FITBIT. It tracks steps, and miles. You can log on and track calories, water, and your friends can join and share data. Don thinks it is a gimmick - but like my Daughter-in-law says, " If it is a gimmick that motivates you -- It's good." I've been taking the long way to copiers and pushing after work with snowshoes if I haven't gotten my daily 10,000 steps. It least wearing it keeps me focused on healthy choices. A couple of friends at work even join in.
Last year's exercise record wasn't as great as I wanted, hoping for a great 2015.
P.S. I'm also documenting the days I pick up a needle and thread. A gratitude reminder for when I think I never have the time I want to sew... I look and realize I really do....
