Sparkpeople

Sunday, May 27, 2007 by Michelle

Where on earth have I been lately? Turns out I've been hanging out in an online FREE health and fitness support community called Sparkpeople. It's pretty great there; I've met people from all over the world who are getting fit and healthy too. Some have just started, others are midway along their journey and some have met a lot of their goals and are now setting new ones. There's information and resources, discussion forums and teams, nutrition and fitness trackers, and all kinds of good will and encouragement. If you do check it out, I'm MHOULE on the boards and you can go look for me there. You'll find me either hanging out with the shorties (5'3" & under), the rookie runners, 40 something's, tea drinkers or the iron maidens (women lifting weights to get fit - great name, eh?)... or the plethora of other teams I've joined. And yes, I do get off my duff and actually still exercise, but now I do so with lots of others cheering me on.

Fractal Quilts

I was using Stumble Upon to coast around on the internet the other day, and came across this amazing art quilt site featuring Fractal Art Quilts. I've put them in my links, and you can see her gallery at http://www.roserushbrooke.com/fractal-art-quilts-1.html. The artist really shows a fantastic intersection between mathematics and quilting.
