I can sew

Never thought I could actually really sew, but I did.
Here is the result, isn`t it cute??

Some friends of mine and I got together last weekend for a sewing and chatting afternoon.
We all have sewing machines, but never used them. In fact the only reason why my machine was out of the box was that I needed the box to ship something. Ha ha
So I tried to remember everything what I learned back in Middle School in home economics (Handarbeiten) and some of it actually stuck with me.
We worked after a pattern which my friend Claudia brought and surprisingly it wasn`t too difficult. I just need to remember to stay patient and work slow...
Anyways I am hooked and can`t wait to do more..hmmm but what...Pajama pants, tablerunners, bags??? Oh so many options, we will see...
Have a fabulous weekend!

Fitness 4 Life Photo Shoot

We had the unique opportunity through Fitness 4 Life to do a photoshoot with the amazing James Patrick. Reason being the successful end of our 8 week challenge.

What an experience to do a professional photoshoot! Quite nervracking (thanks to Terry and Cheryl for the drinks at 11 am to relax us), but also very exciting and a great feeling to be part of such an amazing group!

So here they are, my model pics!

Not totally at my goal yet, but definitely on my way!
