Pleased with my progress

Here's the wedding sampler and the little bag for the flower girl. I need to put the date and initials on the bag still  and the ribbons for the handle....I am also seeing I missed four of the darker green sttiches on one leaf......I am happy with how far I am with the sampler considering I have not had much time devoted to stitching the last 10 days.                

I joined the local Y and have been going to a Yoga class and working out in the gym three days a week. Boy after the treadmill, the elliptical and then the weights, when I finally sit down I find I am falling asleep on the sofa with needle in hand and not a stitch taken! This is the first 10 days and I know I will get my stamina up and be back to stitching more than in just the pre-dawn hours before work.  Pardon the wrinkles....I never think about pressing my pieces before I photograph and post them.....because of course I am in a head over heels hurry to post!   

As for working out at the Y, I have a dear friend as my exercise partner and it is so good to be able to spend time with her and at the same time be working towards a healthier body!

Your pieces are lovely!!! I love the softness of the colors and the pop of the beads!

Congrats on your working out! I had to put my main workout on hold now that the boys are home for the summer, but I still plan on walking and doing some things here at home.
