Today the Monday Textile Group met again after their Easter break - and the project was a retreat bag. Since I was early, I took the opportunity to run up another toiletry bag for the stash.
However Wendy had come prepared and was able to nearly finish it - whilst Carine was busy cutting and prepping.
Meanwhile Linda was busy choosing her fabrics and starting the prep.
Home, for a few minutes, and it was time to book my tickets for The Festival Of Quilts - sadly the two workshops that I wanted were fully booked but I will look again to see if anything else takes my fancy! Then it was round to the church to see the gardener, before popping into Mum and Dad's for a catch up - and then onto Tesco's for the weekly shop. Phew - I was glad to get to Slimming World - if only for a sit down!
So - did I achieve my goal? After just over a year - did I get my 5 stone award? Of course I did!! Did you ever doubt it? Not only that but, with a weight loss of 4lbs, I was slimmer of the week - so that was two shiny certificates for the wall! With two weigh in's before I go on holiday (and put some of it back on! ) I would like to reach the 5 1/2 stone award (6 in total) but that would mean losing another 5 1/2lbs. A tough ask - but let's go for it!!
