 I walked 376 miles and rode my exercise bike 3785 miles this last year.
I also lost 5 lbs and most of all how happy I am I lost 3/4 inch in my belly
and 1 inch in hips and 1/2 inch in ankles.The rest stayed the same. I have
been keeping records of my exercise since 1983 and my measurements
since 1997.

Poky Dot Material

A friend gave me  a layer cake of beautiful Poky Dot Material
I made wallets to keep  credit cards  in. 
Click on pictures to see how nice the dots look.

I also decided to make some tissue covers  to keep in  your purse.
Next I want to make some small zipper bags for make up.
These will make nice gifts for my friends.

Sewing at Round Lake Retreat

On my table was a kit to make a draw string bag. I said I have lots of patterns 
but never made any. A friend said Lucille you make it right now. And look it is
beautiful and I even put fancy stitching at the top

 This is the next thing. I sewed with 5 gold fish appliqued on took me all day to sew it together.
Those green and yellow corner stones  16 of them.

  I had bought this kit at Fields Fabric in Kalamazoo, Mi. to make Fishy Fishy Runner for my son who is a great fisherman and he has gold fish in his 2 ponds in his yard.
 Now I just have to layer and quilt it so he can enjoy it.

One day I quilted all these pot holders
and the next day was spent putting on the binding

I had a wonderful time sewing and meeting new  and old  friends.
The food and fellowship was great no dishes or cooking to do for me.
