Wow, its been days and days since I last blogged! I had every intention to blog frequently this year, maybe not daily but several times a week. My last entry was well before the weekend. I had a lovely weekend out at Ann and Dan's, but then it aways is a lovely weekend when I'm visiting my good friends. I'm not sure why I hadn't blogged in so long, just didn't feel like it I suppose.
I arrived Friday night (it was cold!) to warm lights and a roaring fire. Of course it wasn't long before the stitching was pulled out! I worked away on my exchange piece, and Ann worked on her Fairies in the Garden. Saturday it started to warm up outside but Ann and I didn't venture far! We settled in front of the wood stove to stitch! In the afternoon Beatrice joined us for short while, it was so nice to see her! Sunday morning we woke up to big, fluffy snowflakes falling pretty heavily and it kept doing so until mid-afternoon, where it changed to a lighter snow. At lunch time we were joined by a lovely group for lunch and stitching. I got to see Beatrice, Adriana, Sharon and Sharon, and Judie... we received regrets from Barb and Wendy they just couldn't make it out due to the road conditions. Lunch was delicious and it so wonderful to see the ladies!!! I am so looking forward to my next visit which will be the weekend of March 7th for Ann's Nashville Open house.
After I finished my exchange piece on Sunday morning, I pulled out Blackstone Fantasy Garden for my Sunday on this piece for the month. It was such a joy to work on this all day and wish I didn't have to put it away. I've worked a little bit on Paradigm Lost since then but not enough to show it off tonight.
Now onto the moving, finally tonight the scale moved for me tonight! Even better, the scale moved down! The last time the scale budged was on December 30th, and I was starting to despair when for the last few weeks the scale hadn't moved for me. It was to the point where I would of been happy to see even an upwards move, just to see the darned thing change!
