Its Home! Its Home!


Yay! Today my neighbourhood round robin came back home! I want to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful ladies who worked on my piece, I just love it and what you stitched on it! Yes, I do have two spare spaces and they will be filled by my friends Christin and Kathy.

Also on the stitching front, tonight I finished the "top secret" stitching project. So now I'll be able to switch over to ornaments (yes, more) I don't have as many as I'd like to for gifties! These ornies, I'll be able to share... Yay!

I am feeling much better now, thank you everyone for your well wishes. As I mentioned in my last post, the flu certainly can help on the weight loss front. I went and weighed in last night at a different Weight Watchers meeting (one in the next town over). I've dropped 5lbs in the last week! Eeek! So the trick is until my next weigh in, to be cautious with what I eat, be active, and so on (hard to do with my work Christmas Party tomorrow). This way I can do the least damage to my 5lbs loss. This current loss means I've hit the 50lbs milestone! While I'm happy about this I'm not swinging from the chandelier, if I can sustain this at my next weigh in then I'll truly celebrate.

CONGRATS on hitting the 50 mark!! You have worked hard and I'm proud of you! (I've been a member of ww for a few years now. When I gain more than I want, I go back on the online program. Of course it gets a lot harder the older I get...not because I can't follow it, but the metabolism is a little slower as I creep toward the big 5-0!)
Your RR is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen! It's truly incredible! Can't wait to see the last 2 blocks!!

Your RR is lovely. What a neat way to depict your neighborhood. And 40CT?? You are a far better stitcher than I. I can barely manage 32CT anymore.
