January 2010 progress report

Well, that sounds official, doesn't it?
Just thought that I'd keep you posted on my progress,
both health-wise and craft-wise.
My head is still in the right space and I am finding it pretty easy
to exercise 4 times a week and maintain a healthy diet.
I have lost 4kg over 4 weeks
and that alone is motivating!
(For those of you who care after reading my first post about this health kick,
I am also poo-ing again
and yes, it is a necessary evil)
Craft-wise I am on the go, baby.
I have cut out 2 things to sew up,
have a dozen more patterns in my to do pile,
and have spent the last 2 days owning our dining room space.

I have been intending to redecorate a pine chest of drawers for over a year now.
I have been slowly accummulating bits and pieces
and I have finally, finally, finally
not only started but nearly finished.
It's been an intense 2 days but the results so far have been beyond what I had hoped.
Here is a sneak peak...

Can't wait to show it off but another night of stamping
then as many layers of sealer as I can manage is required
to Mae-proof it as much as possible.
My mojo is back and stuffed firmly head-first into a pillowcase
so I can keep the little bugger from going AWOL again.
