Who knew!! Quilting has a built in side benefit.
You would think that making a quilt involved mostly sitting at the sewing machine. Nope. I am doing more standing and walking than I ever did making jewelry and crocheting.
I am standing when I work with my fabric. I am standing when I measure it and cut it. I am walking into the next room to press the quilt pieces. I am walking into a completely different room to place the pieces on my design wall. Back and forth.
And surprise!! Guess what happened?
I lost seven pounds.
I don’t have time to eat. I don’t want food. I want to look at delicious quilts in all different colors, shapes and designs. I want to sew them all.
If I keep up the same pace throughout the rest of this year, I can say good-bye to 21 more pounds. Wish me luck!!
