At least with Fitbit it does!
This has really been a nasty weather day, so I’ve done all I can to make sure I’m getting my 10,000 steps in.
My friend Mickey was a big help…a 45 minute conversation with her had me walking circles in my house from front hall to kitchen to dining room to living room to front hall to kitchen to dining room to living room! Wow! over 4,000 steps! This is cool….
My studio is in the basement and I’ve loaded a quilt on the long arm today ---and we know that takes a lot of steps to pin in, go from one side of the machine to the other, up and down the 12 foot long table….
Looking good so far!
I chose a design called Twirly Feathers by Hermione Agee of Lorien Quilting, Australia and am using a gold/tan thread that blends through both the dark and light fabrics just fine.
Uhoh!! No matter how hard we try, we sometimes still end up with the same fabric next to each other. Too bad…it’s staying!
I’m loving these running pigs as the backing fabric! It’s gotta go OUT of the stash and be gone!
Thinking a blue binding will finish this off nicely.
But here is the fun part.
Someone asked if I could get steps by treadling. It *IS* Exercise after all, isn’t it?
Let’s see! Fitbit clipped to shoe!!
Checked the count just to start! 7,786 steps today? Not bad!
Treadle this seam!
I am doing neutral string sashings for my Wonky Wishes blocks…at least that is the plan so far….
Check the count on the right foot…
7, 814 baby!! I just gained 28 steps by treading that seam! Whoowhoooo!
I think this Fitbit plan is a plan I can live with, don't you?
Just another 3000 treadle-steps to go and I’m good for the day----Which means...
I’ll be treadling tonight for Quilt-Cam! Come join me!
9 Pm Eastern time…see you HERE!
