I'm still alive

Christmas really burned out my craftiness. I took on entirely too much. I haven't made anything since the day before Christmas. I've cut up a few things but they're just sitting on my sewing table. I've got some things to share, but no pictures. I just lost all interest. I do want to share what my stepdad made me for Christmas- a gorgeous mahogany wood thread rack and a quilt rack. My mom made me a darling wreath for my sewing room. Once I actually put that room back together I'll post pix! Here's Kaytlin's Christmas dress, I made it. I love the way it turned out. It was a challenge, ruffling all of that fabric... two layers of tulle net, thick taffeta, and the lining.

I had my surgery. You can find me at obesityhelp.com... my user name is kaytiebugs. I'm six days out. I haven't had solid foods in three weeks. I've lost 21 pounds and it's only getting better. I think for now my primary focus needs to be my health, not obsessive crafting and hoarding.

Love,
Amanda

Nice story as for me. I'd like to read something more concerning that matter. Thanks for sharing that data.

Hello dear. I do love your blog and your projects. I wanted to comment on this post because my mother had gastric bypass surgery almost a year ago. Just wondering if you ever needed someone to talk to, she is a very nice woman and would be willing to help you with anything, discuss your fears, feeling or just talk.

My mom weighed in at a little over 300lbs before she went in for surgery.

I think she has lost over 90lbs in less than a year now.


Let me know.

xoxo to you and yours.
