Get yourself a Karri

Treats in the post...I have been a member of the Fat Quarter Shop Jelly Roll Club for a long time now and this was the December Jelly Roll....Moda - Fig and Plum....
A few weeks back I mentioned that I was going to the Gym and doing a bit of swimming (water aerobics)...well my friends Dale and Kath have joined me and we have a personal trainer, Karri, and we have been going to Karri three times a week for the past six weeks, last night was measurement night and yes, we had all lost centimetres, off our hips, bust and our tuckshop arms....we all felt so darn good, it has been a lot of hard work but it has paid all you ladies out there who are feeling a little tired, not much energy, would like to tone up, or need a little lift in some form or other....get yourself to the gym, get yourself a personal trainer or join a group....personally this has been a huge boost for me....I have a lot more energy and I feel so much better, mentally and if you can get yourself a Karri..........


  1. Holy cow you sleep? I am amazed at the quilts you knock out, the stitcheries you are doing and working fulltime...and now you're going to the gym...are there more than 24 hours in a day in Australia? Good for you, that is wonderful! I think I need to get busy!

  2. That's GREAT! I am do proud of you! Keep up that good work.
