Make A Million

Fabric is, and has been a hobby of mine since I learned to sew. My mom told me about a 'cause' called Make a Million Pillow Cases. You make them and then send them to a charity of your choice. Well, I went through my scraps and made a few, then bought a few pieces to go with other scraps I had, then set it up as a project for the young women at church, and then came home and made some more. Last count I had eleven completed and enough fabric for about six more.

It's kind of addicting, and it's difficult to eat and sew at the same time. They are so easy to make and I'm excited to give them away.
Of course I haven't given up the gym....or trying to eat healthy. I've lost 48 pounds, so I'm almost halfway to my goal. I know I need to 'up my game' and get more serious about my food intake habits. But, as we all know, bad habits are extremely easy to pick up and so hard to loose.

Veg Fest

Yesterday my vegan friend, Anne, and I ditched our families and headed to sunny San Fransisco for the veg fest.
If you had asked me about attending a veg fest when I was 10 yr old, I would have shrieked "EW!!!". I am now proud to say that I love my vegetables! Although that's not really what I was eating at the fest.... There was a plethora of vegan samples, all free! FREE!! Yeah I am not ashamed to admit that Anne and I made the rounds.. More than once!! Vegan chocolate, vegan yogurt, vegan sausage, crispy kale chips, chocolate coconut water, larabars, vegan potato chips, fruit snacks, etc... We also indulged in some vegan mexican food for lunch. I had the black beans and taquitos... Super yum!! We were able to attend a lecture and a couple cooking demonstrations. I wish everyday could be veg fest. Can't wait for next year!
