Hi everyone, and a big welcome to my new followers! I can't believe 16 people have taken the time to check out my strange stitchy life on a regular basis! Speaking of stitching, I have some progress on Sadness of an Angel I am pretty excited to share...do you see what I see?!
That's right...something besides background! Here's a close up!
It still doesn't look like much, but I am so excited it is starting to look like SOMETHING! lol. I am now 12280/117600 stitches in, and finally to the start of her hair; I was beginning to think I was never going to get to anything before X-mas...
And also, speaking of X-mas, I did start a few small projects over the last week or so, only have the backstitching (yuck!) left on the first one, so as soon as I am done I will post a pic!
I haven't been stitching quite as much over the last little bit, I figured it was soon time for me to lose the rest of the weight I have been carrying around for the last few years, so I have begun walking again with the dogs. I am managing to get out around once a day, (since the pups are pretty busy with doggie daycare and get lots of exercise) and am hoping to build up to twice a day. When I split with the ex-hubby last October, I lost 32 pounds pretty quickly, stress and all that, but I still have not reached my target weight, I am aiming for 10 more pounds. Been gradually adjusting my diet over the last month and a half to cut down on the junk food, and try a few more healthy choices, which is going okay. My sis and I are going to Cuba in April, so I really really REALLY want to be happy enough with my body to enjoy spending time on the beach and stuff without worrying about who's looking at my spare tire...sigh...I definitely have body image issues. Right now I am around 195 pounds, and am 5'10, so I figure another 10 pounds is realistic, since I have a bigger body frame. Of course, trying to lose weight around the holidays should be interesting, wish me luck! lol
Anywho, I have an hour before bed, pups are tired, and mummy is itching to get back to stitching! Talk to you soon!
