Tea Pot Doll Brooch

Beaded Art Dolls is a yahoo group that I am part of.  The last group project was to make a teapot doll.  I didn't want to make a very large one, so I made mine a brooch.    I love doing bead embroidery.  I prefer making it in a 3D way rather than flat.  I really enjoyed making her.  Her little face is looking through between the pot and the handle.

Next project is a beaded doll hat of sorts.  Must find a hat today or I will make another brooch.

After One Week on the SHD...

Ok...this was great !  I lost 10 pounds and Jeff lost about 4.  We are going to  continue with this for a while.  One week on, one day off with healthy eating and back on again.  The food has been very satisfying thus far.   If you love veggies than it's great.  Still have fruit and meat on certain days too, even rice or for this week we are using bulgar wheat.  I'll keep updating.

Sacred Heart Diet and Crochet

Jeff and I have decided to go on the Sacred Heart Diet for one week, to cleanse our bodies of "junk".  Soup, soup and more soup with some extras every day.  Doing this together is really a great thing, because I don't think we could ever do this individually.
We have also given up coffee for a while.  Tea without sugar...maybe honey at times and some skim milk. Or a squirt of lemon.
It will be interesting to see how the rest of the week goes and what happens after that.  There is a continuing program to follow, but the book is $15.  We'll see.
Soup all day today and tonight we have a special treat of a large baked potato with lots of butter .... LOL.  Looking forward to that for sure.

On another note...I am making crocheted bowl sets with nylon cording.  Hoping to sell some at the Church show on the 13th.  Martha and I are sharing a table.  I will be bringing my small table to display some jewelry too.  I have so many pieces, mostly bracelets, so hopefully I'll sell some of them.  Lots of scarves too and couple of hats and a bag.  $$$$ need it.  LOL  It will be a fun time.  Marty is a really nice person.  Enjoy being with her. 7 AM  to 1 PM.  Early to bed and early to rise with a wake up call at 6:30.  Oh boy.
