I am also determined to do at least half an hour sewing each day if I can. There's a new quilt underway made with some lovely Kaffe Fassett fabrics that were a Christmas present, I just have one more block sequence to sew into a square and then I can start putting it all together into a quilt
So what is the new experience? The thing I signed up for and then instantly thought 'I'm not sure about this'? Barre Fitness. I have visions of tutus and pink tights, silk ballet shoes and me gliding around the floor like Dame Darcey Bussell but fear the reality may be more like the Dawn French episode of Vicar of Dibley.
The class is being led by the lady who takes my Zumba Gold class and I asked her to tell me honestly if it would be too much for an old girl like me but she assured me that I will be fine. Also, no leotard, footless tights or ballet shoes are required. Meet me back here this time next week and we will see how it went. There are apparently several reasons why it is good:
1. Low impact, less chance of injury
2. It is great for toned legs, trimmed arms, tightened waistlines and lifted bottoms (it'll be a miracle if that one is true!)
3. Gives you good posture and flexibility
4 You don't get sweaty
Honestly girls, you won't recognise me next week, what with all the skinny legs and arms, clothes falling off me because I've lost inches off my waist and bum. What do you mean, 'you may have to go more than once'?
