A glass of wine and....

I haven't had a glass of wine in soooooooooooo long and it feels good to unwind.  Not that I have been wound tight lately.   Scary but things have been falling into the right place the last week or so...... been able to get back to my yoga class, to be a regular at the gym again and lost .4 lbs at my WW weigh in today.   Not earthshattering but not a gain either!  (And Yoga kicked my butt this week but I loved it.)

Today, I arrived home to a  *Surprise* in the mail.   I won the give-a-way on  Stitching Devotee's blog.   It is the four Erica Michael's Random Thoughts designs - Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.   I do believe I will have to put fiber and fabric on my shopping list for my retreat at Salty Yarns in October!  I wonder if buying the fabric and fiber will break my pledge not to spend a small fortune on this visit?  hmmm, to be decided....


Here's Autumn!

I also have progress on my Sew Spooky thanks to a few lunch times in my car soaking up the warmth of the sun and sitting in the customer waiting room at my Toyota dealers while I got an oil change before work this morning.    I love her hair and the photo also showed me a 'cross' I didn't finish.  So far I am happy with my progress and have been thinking of different ways to finish thanks to checking out all your blogs/neat ideas!  I am liking these smaller works.......it really has renewed that old feeling of pleasure in stitching when things were simpler.

So good that you are having a fun week! A nice glass of wine now and then and stitching - what more could you want - well, besides more time and supplies to do those things :)

Congrats on your win! I have always admired those patterns but have yet to add them to my pile. Wonder if they are still available?

Have a wonderful weekend!
