Another quilt top finished.

21 pounds lost since mid January

34 miles hiked last week

$1,695.00 raised so far for Breast Cancer research.

Thanks to those who have already made donations to help me reach my goal. To make a donation in memory of someone lost to breast cancer or in honor of someone fighting the disease please click the link below.

Uh, Mary, I think I found at least a few of those 21 pounds.

The Hourglass turned out really nice! Way to go!

Really awesome accomplishments Mary! The finished top looks wonderful, and a BIG high 5 for all those lost pounds!

I like your quilt - the triple borders are a nice touch! Good job keeping at your list of goals - you certainly are making great progress.

I am a sucker for blue and white. This is a very nice quilt. Great job on the funds raised for cancer research. Keep posting those beautiful quilts.

Mary, such a nice clear crisp look to the hour glass strings. Bet it will be awhile before you will want to work in an all blue color palette though, LOL.

Way to go on your weight loss and training miles as well!

Congratulations on your accomplishments, Mary!
My sister-in-law is doing the 3-day walk, too. We've made a donation to her, but will be thinking of you, too.

Good for you Mary! I sponsored a student of mine who is doing the same thing. You gals are great for doing that. And losing weight as a bonus? Can't go wrong with that!
