23 months ago in Apr 2010 I had weight loss surgery, I was over 400 pounds, I had weighed 463 pounds when I was first scheduled for surgery in Aug 09 and since then I have lost nearly half my body weight
The half gallon bottle I tried was too small for 229 bamboo pieces (I used bamboo pieces from place mats and dyed them with alcohol ink I made) so this is a Gallon Jar next to a pint jar, my goal by the way is 190 not too worried about getting smaller than that just want to break 200

I made some cute crocodile stitch booties with some varigated yarn I couldn't resist buying. I hate the "camo" effect a short colour run varigated gives, but the colours were too pretty (and hard to pass up at $2 for 100g) This has a longer colour run than most camo yarns, so it's not too bad. I've started a slouchy cabled beanie to use up the leftovers (which is a lot!)

So far I made in march absolutely nothing  Cry The first few days I was just lazy, then I felt all weak and dizzy all day and could do nothing even though I wanted to. At least now I have a proper fever...I hate it when I just don't feel right and don't know what's wrong. I try to make at least some ATCs this month and a few bookmarks (the bookmark swap really got me inspired).

suereal: Love the bag. The bunny/turtle fabric is so cute
waggonswest: The quilt turned out just gorgeous!

Crafting to avoid real work.

The bag and quilt are so colorful and happy!

Love the tree quilt waggonswest!
And smashu's t-shirts are just awesome!

I have completed a couple of projects in March, but they were for swaps and I forgot to take pictures Sad
But, you can see one of them on rlynn's post of Aria's embroidery - I made the batman shirt that she is rockin'!

Hopefully my OTT hunger games partner will post some pix of what I sent that I can link to.

I am losing the battle of doing as many crafts for me & family as for swaps, but I have some personal projects planned that I hope to get to shortly!!  probably not until April, though...

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.
