A new Food Challenge + cross stitch

Thursday, September 26, 2013

I read up on the new 30 day Food challenge here on SparkPeople. After fighting with the links and asking questions and reading replies, I finally got it to work. The bad part is having to disable my pop up blocker and ad blocker to display the challenge information. It looks easy enough to follow but I will have to do a LOT of substitutions.
Somehow I have left behind 5 lbs. I don't know where I left it or how but my weigh in today was surprising!

I've also been doing cross stitch a lot and I am just loving it. I started this Halloween project 2 years ago as part of a group stitch along but never did anything beyond the 1st block and part of the border. I am stitching it on 32 count hand dyed evenweave fabric with an assortment of flosses. Here is my progress as of today. You can compare it to the blog below when I first started last week. I took the picture with my iPod and I really hate the fuzzyness of the iPod pictures.

Doing what I LOVE to do

Monday, September 16, 2013

Finally sat down to do some beloved cross stitching today, it is so relaxing and I just love it when a project comes together. I'll have to post later what I am doing.



I stitched the purple bat today, 2 squares down 11 more to go

    Fall is in the air - I too feel the urge to pick-up on some handwork.

Enjoy!

Hard day for me

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

It's a sad to start with, remembering those lives lost and all those effected by the Terror attacks 12 years ago. Today would have been my parents 68th wedding anniversary but sadly my Dad passed away May 1. It hurts. I will call my mom later and let her know I am thinking of her today.
