Stitching - Not much stitching going on here, or rather not much cross stitching. Stitching of another kind has been happening. My second quilting class - Yikes! - talk about precision! The teacher is great but if we are off more than 1/32 of an inch we need to start over. All the cutting, measuring, re-squaring, measuring and cutting again all before SEWING. And then the sewing can but off. Selecting fabrics was hard enough. The work is tedious but the rewards are going to be great. I am not a precise person. I am organized, neat, anal and an overachiever but not precise. Fortunately or unfortuately I have been sewing for years with the unfortunate part the potential for years of bad habits. This is going to be a challenge. But I am taking this class with two friends from work so it is all good.
And even more Stitching - I am so close on my Between the Sheets Sampler. I just need some thread and needle and linen time. Oops! It is sideways!
Last week was a series of evening classes, evening meetings and dinners out so it was collapse on the couch time and get the DVR going to catch up when I finally found my way home. Of course I was either too tired to stitch or promptly fell asleep in the upright position!
Weight Watchers - Great numbers again this week. Down 3 pounds. Unfortunately I went on a food frenzy on Wednesday-Thursday-Friday. Hopefully I am back on track today and will get in some treadmill time at some point today. Between my schedule last week and my time being stretched to the limits and Mr. Wonderful being more like Mr. Crab-cake all week I fell into the old habits that helped add those pounds I so deparately want to shed. I found a really easy reality check......when I sit at my dressing table in the morning (in you know, with next to nothing on) all I need to look to the right at the far end of the walk-in closet and see that ghastly reflection in the full length mirror and I vow - I don't want to look like and feel like that person I see in the reflection. So today, lots of water, lots of movement.
SEW SEW SEW - I am wasting precious good weather time outside ........messing about with the internet and blogville.
