Just Call Me... Beatrice

My dear friend Beatrice loves new starts and does so frequently, of course she's retired so has a lot more stitching time than I do!

Well it seems I'm taking a page out of Beatrice's book lately, I've got another new start for you! I just fell in love with Hallowscornu by Barbara Ana Designs! So of course I bought it and started it! I'm stitching it on Wichelt's 28ct Blueberry Joblean hand dyed fabric. Here's my progress since Sunday evening's start.


I had a great weigh in yesterday at Weight Watchers! I'm down another 3lbs which makes up for my 1.5lbs gain last week plus some. Unfortunately this most likely isn't enough to make my goal of 40lbs total for the first day of school as I'm now sitting at 35.5 lbs total. I've got one more WI before school starts. Of course it could be totally possible that I will make that 40lbs on the first day of school, since I have a WI that night.

Very cute, the pattern was adorable so I'm sure stitched up would be even better :-) Congrats on the lose this week, I was down 2 as well so I guess we behaved ourselves enough this weekend...

COngrats on your new weight loss: you won't reach your goal on the first day of school but you'll reach it very soon ;-)

I love that design too, I might get it for this halloween.

Congrats to the weight loss! I think you are doing so good and you should really pat yourself on the back for sticking to it for such a long time. You have lost so much weight and you will reach that 40 lbs milestone real soon!

Dani, I LOVE Barbara Ana! Her designs are so easy to stitch. This one has been on my hit list since it came out. I'm the Queen of Halloween, as my stitching buddies call me....LOL. Love the choice of fabby! Hang in there with the weight loss! My sister lost 100 lbs on WW...took her a year but she did it! You go girl.

Hi Dani,

Aw...to heck with it. Go ahead
and have some fun. After all,
it's almost the end of summer
vacation. And therefore Fall
is just around the corner.

This looks like it's going to
be a cute design and I love
the fabric that you've chosen
to stitch it on. It's lovely.

Congrats on the great weight-in.

Cheers!!

Bette said...

Congratulations on your weight loss. WW is wonderful. And with 2 weigh ins left till the start of school (I'm counting the one on the first day), I'll bet you can make your goal.

Your Biscornu is looking so cute, what a fun start. Good going on the weight loss too, you're making excellent progress with the WW program. Loved your earlier entry on the retreat, it looks like it would have been such fun. I'd have loved to see all the beautiful pieces you all were displaying.
