I never make myself anything. The things I make are always with the thoughts of selling it or giving it to someone. So yesterday I sat down at my worktable and made myself a necklace. I have all these charms and crosses and beads that I like and have saved for a someday, and so I put it all together in a necklace for myself. The first little cross on the right is a cross I got when I was "confirmed" in the Methodist church, probably 8th grade, still have it. The tiny black beads are from a rosary I found in an antique store, the peace sign from a favorite pair of earrings, bone from my pal Laura, stick from Linville Gorge last month, sea glass from a blogger friend, rock from Maine, pearls from a junk shop, ribbon from Nina Bagley. Lots of little mementos and treasures all in one necklace. I have some other things I haven't attached yet, it's a work in progress and the fun part is that I can add to it as I get new things.
and here I am at my 10% Weight Watchers goal weight!
145 as of today, YEAH! 5 more pounds to go to get to my final goal of 140.
I started at 161 on July 5 this year, and I have literally worked my ass off to get here.
Feels really good! This belt I have on is in the last loop and it's too big, ha!
Not too shabby for a 53 year old, of course it helps that I am a 10 year old mentally :-)
