Hey folks, sorry I haven't blogged in a few days. I came down with the flu last night, and I've still got it. So I definitely didn't make it into my Weight Watchers meeting tonight. There's one in the area tomorrow evening and if I'm well enough (aka I don't have a fever anymore) then I'll go and get weighed in. One thing in my favour, I suppose is I wasn't able to eat until late tonight, so I hadn't eaten in 24 hours. Hopefully that 2lbs gain from last week is gone??? Of course the flu is not the best way to loose weight.
I'm working on another top secret stitching project again! This time its a gift for someone who I know reads this blog so I can't share it... again! However over the weekend I did stitch up an ornament so I'd have something to share with you. I've been wanting to try out 40ct linen for awhile and I got a piece back in October. I have to say my first go at 40ct wasn't bad at all! Now I didn't even try to stitch in hand, I used q-snaps and good lighting!
Damask Ornament A
Cross Stitcher June 2007
Stitched with 1 strand Gumnut Stars #489
Stitched on 40ct Newcastle Linen
There are three more ornaments in this series and I plan on doing them all.
Oh yeah! Also, late last week I received my fair and square exchange from Stephanie. She stitched a pair of gorgeous squares for me and they will be a fantastic addition to the quilt I'm going to make down the road with them!
