I want a new wardrobe
Why is my AC on still?
My ovaries are screaming
I love Fall
I'm very tired today
I really want to sew something
Loved Amazing Race last night
I need some chocolate
My body is acting weird
I like to go for a walk in this weather
Can't wait for Halloween

I have steadily gaining weight since I quit smoking. Not good. I am, however, happy I quit but this is getting ridiculous!!
I need a change, I am not healthy, my self esteem is in the gutter, I cant physically do things I use to do. I. AM. FAT.
So, today I started the new Weight Watchers Points Plus plan. I'm doing it online because I don't even like to go out right now :( I'm a little leery of it since it is different than the old plan (which I know and understand) But I am committed to giving it a good effort!!!
Wish me luck!

So, I am wearing all black (my usual lol ) and adding these accessories :)
I made this awesome knit bracelet that my friend Vanessa told me about on this awesome website: V and Co.
I could only complete this bracelet after she put up the video tutorial....that says something about me lol
Once I started it was easy!
I also created these fabric flowers and slipped it on to my headband and Voila!

On to happier things:
Its my younger brothers birthday on April 9th! Happy Birthday Jordan!!
(me, Julie and Jord-being a goof of course)
Jord is an awesome guy full of spirit and spunk! He is very outdoorsy, loves to camp and fish, run and bike ride. He also doesn't 'do' the present thing for any occasion....and well, that doesn't work for me! LOL I love to give gifts, so what do you give someone who doesn't want anything???
Jord is also very health conscious so I cant even bake anything... sheesh
So, this is what he is getting......a fruit basket with organic fruit and a handmade card :)
He will love it!!!!
ps I got the basket at the thrift store for .49cents!! Jord will also love that!

To make a ruffle, you need at least twice that amount to allow for the ruffle. I didn't have 72inches of fabric so I cut 4 strips of the fabric I used. Four strips of 19inches by 3.5 inches. Then the second ruffle was four strips of 19inches by 2.5 inches.
(4 and then the next 4) and pressed down the seams.
Next, to make the ruffle, you want your machine on the longest stitch length and a higher tension (this makes it ruffle automatically)
Start sewing on the non hemmed side to start the ruffle.
Now, you want to make sure that the ruffle length is the same as the skirt bottom. You will have to tighten and pull the thread to make it work. Then you want to pin both ruffles to your skirt (this is what takes some time) You pin them right sides together and upside down, with the shorter ruffle against the skirt...does that make sense?
Next, sew it on!!
Then flip it over, the right way, press it down and then sew a top stitch over the ruffles. This isn't necessary but it looks nicer and flattens out the ruffles a bit :)
ET VOILA!! You are finished!
Next I had this striped shirt that I loved but grew out of *ahem*, anyways, I found this awesome link on youtube to make a bag out of it! So here it is:
Then with the scraps I made this ruffle scarf for Julie :)
Project # 25
More to come!!!
I am currently working on another ruffle skirt (once Julie saw Jamie's she wanted one ) I am trying to make a tutorial for it :)

I'm totally on a roll with trying new things. I love it!!
I made this fun case for Julies Ipod Touch out of felt. I don't think its thick enough though, so I probably will redo it.
And my favorite.....Project #21
