Weave in the ends of the bow tie and cut the excess yarn.
Taking the end of the yarn on the ball, wrap around the middle of the rectangle
Cut 2 ovals out of the black felt and use the black thread
to sew on the whites of the eyes. Sew the finished eyes onto the body near the
open edge of body. Taking the orange yarn, sew a triangle directly under the
eyes (this is the beak). Sew the bow tie under the beak, and stuff the body.
Sew the top together and tie off.
Is it really the end of 2012?
It seems like just yesterday i was making my New Years post. Funny how that works.
I was planning on making a huge long post with the pictures of the past year and bladdy bladdy blah... buut...
I had a different idea.
Why not focus on my resolution?
My resolution this year is to lose weight and get down to at least a size 10.
Yeah yeah yeah, I know what you're thinking.
"Lily, I hate to tell you this but, everyone makes that resolution and pretty much everyone fails at it..."
I'm really serious about it though. I will do it. I've lost 43 pound since May.
It's been a sort of an on going thing since then.
I want to continue what I'm doing and become... well... Healthy. I'm not losing weight so i can look 'prettier'. That was never my goal in the first place.
I'm not really sure how to end this. Its my resolution, but I can't find words to talk about it. You know how that is? haha
So... I guess now I'll post a few old photos from the past year (you know, the thing i said in the beginning of the post that i wasn't going to do) ;)
