Skipping the Gym....

I've skipped the gym for the past 2 days. Instead I've been coming home and working on this:
This is the 2nd project that I've quilted. The first was a small table runner for my mother. She loved it by the way! I typically don't sew during the week but once I got started, I wanted to get the free motion quilting on this finished! I found myself enjoying it. I have a lot to learn but the only way I'm going to learn it is to just do it!

I don't feel guilty at all for missing a couple of workouts!

FMQ is good exercise -- just think, you are building arm and shoulder strength! ;-)

Visiting the gym or sewing ... I'd rather be sewing anyday.

How are you feeling about the quilt now that it's quilted? Do you like it any better?

I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt now. Do you like it any better now you can see it with quilting on?

Good for you! Your table runner is quite lovely, btw.

Machine quilting is always hard for me to start doing, but once I start, it goes better than I feared it would.

I don't blame you, I'd be skipping the gym to work on that quilting project, too.
