Reverse Stitching and A good week at WW

I had to do some reverse stitching on Alex's quilt.  It was way too busy and I'd worked out the size of the borders incorrectly so decided to undo the middle and join them up again.  It's looking better and I'm sure he'll love it.  My daughter rang last night to say they're coming to Welly on Saturday...eekk..  at the moment my bedroom is being painted so everything is EVERYWHERE.  I've got a metre square for my sewing table n the lounge/temporary bedroom... hehe.. It's such a mess!!  They came to shift a manhole from the bathroom floor into the hall cupboard.  (so they can put vinyl in the bathroom YAYAY) But then he decided the spare bedroom wardrobe would be better so that had to be cleared.... I could never take a photo of the disarray in my house right now haha...   and so everything out of the cupboard had to come out too. 

I need to find a way to the cutting board and get the top finished now.  So I can start quilting tomorrow after work. 

Oh and I lost another 1.2 at Weightwatchers this week so maybe next week I'll make it to 5kg in 3 weeks.  (PS I'd already lost 3.5 when I joined so I've lost a total of 7.2kg now.  I'm wrapped.  WW Propoints is a really good programme.  You can still have your cake and eat it too!  Now and again that is!

I am glad it's you living in a bomb site!
It would drive me nuts.. well OK... MORE NUTS.
I hope you get that quilt done in time.
Glad you are trying to make it a little bit less busy too.... you must show me when it's done again!

I have done the WW thing and it does work, thinking I need to go back on it. You are doing good
