WIP Wednesday 15 July 2015 And Other Things

Okay, some progress with the wedding sampler. Here I was last week

And here is where I stopped on Monday.

It's hard to see all the fill in stitches inside the heart, but they are there. Still is a fair bit of back stitching to do before I can move over to the second bird.

And why wasn't I stitching last night you ask? Well, I settled down to watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy as usual and Yoda decided to join me.

And I just didn't have the heart to move him when the hour was up, so I settled for some reading instead.


There is a most generous give away opportunity at the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe blog of some beautiful looking floss. Check it out here!

IHSW is coming!!

A weekend that is totally dedicated to stitching, from Friday night to Sunday night, This lovely idea is hosted by Joysze at Random Ramblings. Click here if you want to join us, click here if you're going "Huh, what IS she talking about?".

And on a more personal note - when I turned 65 in May, I mentioned that I was working hard to shed some excess weight. Well, more honestly, a LOT of excess weight. And, as of my weekly weigh in yesterday morning, I have gotten rid of 100.5 pounds! Now THAT caused a happy dance, believe you me.  However, celebrating is over and it's back to working on the next 5 pounds.

Yoda is adorable and a cuddle with a cat is always a lovely thing (as is a good read).

Wow Bea! Getting rid of over 100 pounds is most certainly celebratory! Good for you!!

Wow, every single part of this is filled with a stitch of sorts. It will look amazing once it's done.

Super congrats on your weight loss! :D That is quite amazing~

Yoda so cute and I think he decided you needed to read. My cats sometimes do this to me although I'm much more obliging in winter haha.
