Guess what I did this weekend…
The Primitive Needle
GAST and Weeks on 40ct Ale from Picture This Plus
I am so in love with this piece. Of course, you know I substituted GAST Cinnamon for GAST Sable. And you may notice also from my photo that I restitched the stripes on the snake. I wanted them to all be that bright green. And I dealt with the crazy eyes on the sheep. I actually did stitch those in Sable. And I think they’re fine. And the yeti fabric is still absolutely impossible to photograph. Just imagine it warmer and less gray. It’s gorgeous. I will most certainly be ordering more PTP fabric in the future. I will also be stitching more of Miss Lisa’s designs – she totally rocks. I definitely took Glenna’s advice and spent most of my weekend planted firmly on the couch stitching. I decided that since I haven’t made it to see the new Harry Potter movie yet, I would amuse myself with the DVDs.
I watched the first three movies this weekend and am looking forward to time with numbers four and five soon. And although I came very very close to finishing Earth Sampler on Sunday, I had to put the final stitches in last night before class. It was a much-needed restful and wonderful weekend. And I lost 3.6 pounds at WW this week, which allowed me to hit some really good goals! Yay!! And I got a little charm for having signed up for my 5k, which was totally cool. Now all I need is to test out my feet this coming Saturday. I should have healed heels by then! Then the 5k is August 8th.
So, after much debate on what to stitch next I think I’m going to pick up BBD’s The Simple Things again. I didn’t get very far on my start on this and I think it will be another relatively quick stitch. Here’s where I left off, in case you were thinking I was kidding when I said I didn’t get very far.
So, that’s what’s going on in my little world. I finished the book I was reading for my book club and don’t really know what I want to pick back up to read. I will probably go back to reading Drums of Autumn, because I’d really like to finish that series. I’ve also started re-reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, because why not? So, you can see I’m kind of jumping around on my reading as well as jumping around on my stitching. And I’m feeling the need to do some other crafting too – like quilting or knitting sometime soon. I am all over the place!! But, I am trying to contain myself.
I am grateful for being able to breathe today. And finally seeing the doctor about my shoulder. Yes, Eric, you can say I told you so.
