A Start is a Start

My dieting hit a very, very stubborn plateau. I've not been gaining BUT the weight loss stopped weeks and weeks ago. So today I tried something different. I'm adding walking.

These are a few of the sights I saw at Under the Oaks, a lovely local park on the Bay, on my morning stroll.

I am out of practice and in lousy shape. The quarter mile track at the park took me 20 minutes and included several rest stops. Yet, I must remember A Start is a Start!

A Start is a Start!

Plans are meant to be changed or a Start is a Start! I'm "planning" a medallion wall-hanging featuring the old Methodist Church at Rocky Springs (on the Natchez Trace). I intended to use the Church from Lynn Lister's America the Beautiful; however, I wanted the center to be larger and my attempts were not giving my the look of the real Church.

Here is a picture of my "blotched" door, Not only did I get the proportions incorrect, I am not pleased with the dark brown as the Church building. Something lighter would be more my style. And, the real Church is more rustic - simple shapes like squares and rectangles.

So I have decided to try my hand at recreating the Church. I am rather pleased with the look of the building graphed out. The steeple is still out to committee (lol!)

I'm thinking I will stitch the building together and then work on designing the steeple. I am planning on using the darker brown fabric for the window shutters. I am linking to Barbara at Cat Patches for the NewFO Challenge. She did say all I had to do was START.
