I made good progress on Mountain Flowers. Today I want to finish the bottom half. That is only 3 1/2 more diamonds.
I made more caramel corn yesterday and some more fudge. For some reason I can't seem to get the fudge just right. I cooked it just a bit too long and it is a little crumbly but it tastes great. I am trying to resist it.
I signed up on My Fitness Pal to track my eating and I can already see that it is the snacks and candy that put me over. It is recommending a 1200 calorie diet - to help me meet my dietary goals. Not a lot of leeway there. I have to behave myself. I threw away a whole bin of gumdrops. I know, there is more stuff I need to throw away. One step at a time. I also put a lot less sugar in my coffee today.
Here is a picture of the Christmas tree and also one of my mini tree. I am the Queen of Excess. I like a tree with way too much stuff on it. After 40 years, I have way too many Christmas ornaments.
I dusted off my pleater and put the pleating in the baby dress so I can smock it.
I'll get back to the tour of the Unfinished Drawer tomorrow.
