Unfortunately I didn't get in as much stitching time as I would have liked to this past weekend. On Friday I headed up to the family cottage with Todd, unfortunately the lighting inside the cottage wasn't good enough for BFG, even with my little task Ott-Lite. I think next time I'll be better off with my floor model. Saturday was beautiful out but windy/cool, so I couldn't sit out on the deck to stitch (as I had hoped to). Sunday was just miserable, all I wanted to do was go home, but silly me thought it would be best to be practical and take one vehicle... which was Todd's. So I was stuck there until after dinner. Note to self : next time bring my car too. I don't mind being out at the cottage when its beautiful, when I can sit out on the deck in the sun and stitch with a view of the lake.
So here's where BFG stands as of bedtime tonight.
I had a lovely surprise in the mail today! Ann of Knowledge and Needles sent me a little giftie, a copy of Teresa Wentzler's latest design, Tracery Dragons. Which anyone who knows me, knows I collect TW's patterns. Thanks Ann! I look forward to stitching them in the... near???? future.
Tomorrow is weigh in day, because I was at the cottage I don't think I did too well this week. The pants felt a little tight this morning, hopefully (???) I was imagining it, but I don't think so. My meeting leader told me I wasn't eating enough (despite consuming my daily allowance and about half of my weekly points each week)... so this week I ate every single point available to me. Every daily point, weekly point, and activity point (I was active 6/7 days) and you know what I don't really care. I'm hoping with the end of the school year (in a few more weeks) things will calm down and get back to normal for me, there's a lot of food around right now, lots of functions and a few upcoming meals out (the first of them being tomorrow at a nice Italian restaurant which is after a wine and cheese oh my!). I hate this time of year.
I'm looking forward to this weekend, Christin and I are hitting the road in my not as trusty as it used to be, but still not bad car. We're heading down to her parents outside of Kingston to host a stitching day on Sunday! I'm looking forward to seeing all of my stitching friends again!
