Thirty!!!!

As of tonight I have now officially lost 30 lbs! At this week's weigh in I was down 4lbs. Boy was I relieved, after a one pound gain then the following week at no change I was starting to worry. Silly body, its so unpredictable!

I found out today that Staci received the squares I sent her for round 7 of Fair & Square. I stitched her this blackwork design as she wanted something that reflected the stitcher's tastes. Since she did mention she wasn't a fan of fantasy designs this mean no dragons :-( so I picked a blackwork design... I love blackwork.

I had a little bit of time to work on Moonlight Guardian tonight. I finished up the castle, the cliff it sits on and I started the dragon's wings (albeit a small start)
