Why did I become an Herbalife Independent Distributor?

When my 22 year old daughter went away to work in a London hospital I got into a depression swirl.
Didn't want to work,sew, anything but eat. I put on some weight and that made me feel even more depressed.
Then, by chance I met a friend that had been taking Herbalife products for quite a while and she convinced me to try them.
That really changed my life. not only did I loose the extra weight but I also got out of that depression state. I fell more energetic, my students also noticed the difference in me.
I felt so good that I thought that I should pass on the word and help more people.

If you want an healthier way of life, Herbalife is the answer. If you have any questions or doubts just e-mail me and I will gladly give you all the information I have. ( dfelgueiras@sapo.pt).

The Best Spring of my life

 March 20th of 1996. At 15.10 my son José was born, he was my first day of Spring present.
 Today it's his 18th birthday and it's the first day of Spring...Again!!!
 I can't understand how time flew so quickly.
 It seems I had him in my lap just a while ago.

My latest little sewing projects

I've been away for many reasons. My daughter's departure really depressed me and I didn't want to do anything, not even sewing, that I love so much.
Two months have gone by, she came here and made me a surprise and slowly I'm coming back.
Firstly I made some monogram identifiers for their rooms ( my daughter and her friends).

Then I made my February swap blocks

And last but not least, a very generous friend, Linda Ruskauff, who is the owner of a great on line store , The Stitch Sanctuary read my post about my daughter leaving to London and she immediately knew how I felt for her daughter is studying very far from home too. To make me feel better she sent me some wonderful fabrics and a beautiful panel. I've already cut and sewn some of the birds, it's going to look great when it's finished. Thank you so much Linda. If you have the time don't forget to visit her store, you won't regret it ( maybe your wallet will ).

There are some more birds to cut and sew and then I have to write or stitch the name on each wing.
It's not much but this is definitely a start.

Not in my wildest dreams

Last Friday, while I was working someone rang the door bell. As usual I went to open the gate and welcome another child. Well it wasn't really a small child, It was my own child, Catarina flew from London and surprised me at work. I couldn't believe my eyes but there she was.
It was great, I have missed her so much and even thought we only had three days it was great.
In three weeks time she will be here again YEAH. Needless to say that there was no sewing at all.

Me, Catarina and my son José and Blackie, of course. He went crazy when he spotted her, he also misses her very much. He followed her like a shadow the whole week-end.

Can't wait to have her here with us again. This time for an in tire week!

A very important information...At least for me

Today I found a great post on my Facebook. To you expert quilters it might seem absolutely ridiculous but I really have some difficulties in choosing the suitable needle for my sewing.
If, like me you need that kind of help just photocopy ( I did ) this picture and keep it in your sewing drawer.
I hope it can help some you you like it helped me.

Thank you my dear friends

I have to thank all my friends that sent my lovely words of comfort. Some of you have also a daughter or a son far away and you comments gave me strength to endure this ordeal.
I'll try to get to my sewing, it might be a little help just as you said.
Thank you so much my friends.
