Well actually the round robin returned the weekend I met up with my stitching buds in Kingston, two weekends ago. I was kinda holding onto the picture of it for a blog entry when I didn't have a lot of progress on my own projects to show. I did work a bit more on Todd's Stocking between several naps on Sunday. So there's not as much progress to share as I hoped, we'll save a progress picture on that for another day. Since Todd and I had an evening at home last night I was able to work on Mirabilia's Art Deco Spirits. Boy, what a lovely piece, I'll save progress on that for another day too.
Without further ado, here's my Neighbourhood Round Robin complete, and home to stay! Once the official round robin was over I passed it onto my good friends Kathy and Beatrice to fill in the last two spaces. I just LOVE how this turned out! Thank you to everyone for working on it! Its truly a unique neighbourhood.
Onto some more good news! The SCALE was kind again!!! I've lost another pound this week. Which means all the bad I did at the beginning of June has been fixed. The 2.5lbs I put on during the first two weeks have been eradicated. Fingers crossed my body has shifted back to loosing and I'll be able to shed my LAST 8 POUNDS.
Some even more good news, well at Taekwon-Do tonight, I unofficially ended up teaching the class. I started out doing the warm-up when the instructor for the night wanted to work one on one with a WTF TKD student trying out ITF TKD. So he asked me to take over the class. Its amazing how rusty skills just kicked back in. I led the class in patterns, reviewed the 9 (sometimes 8) training secrets, and critiqued some patterns. It felt good to be at the front of the class again.
Final item on the good news agenda, well good news for me. After e-mailing back and forth with Claire's Mom and phone call/cry from Claire... it was so good to hear from Claire. It's been decided and its booked. I'll be going back down to Jacksonville, Florida July 24-Aug 2nd to give my best friend the biggest hug ever. I feel so much better knowing that I'm going down to see her in a few weeks. So strange, this March was my first trip to Florida ever, and here I am going back within the same year. But I need to see Claire.
