Hello and welcome to all of you. I'm so excited to see that I have new blogs to start reading! My Google Reader is starting to be busy. I love it!
We are having our first fall/winter storm, and I must say that I don't like it. At. All. It seems like Summer was so long in arriving and was so very short. I just am not ready for Fall.
Monday was weigh day at the gym. I only lost 1 lb. for the month of September, but lost 5 and 7/8th inches over all. My waist and hips saw the biggest reduction at 2 inches and 1 and a half inches respectively. I'm happy with that. I just need to keep going to the gym and keep trying to eat healthy.
My super long scroll rods arrived on Monday. Yippiee! Since Monday was L*K stitch along, I didn't get them out. But on Tuesday, I did get them out, rolled my fabric, and started in on Flower Power. Here's something for comparison:
Halloween Rules is on 20 inch scroll rods:
Here is Flower Power on the 36 inch scroll rods.
And I'm so excited, there isn't any sag! Well, if there is, it's very minimal and I'm not noticing it. I didn't get many stitches put in, but here they are:
The picture of the fabric on the scroll rods is a better idea of the color of the fabric. Note too that I am stitching this sideways. The top of the fabric is to the right, and the bottom is to the left. I'm off to Hobby Lobby later to get a color of floss that I'm missing for this batch of flowers. I was missing four colors and JoAnn's had three of them. Oh well... spread the wealth.
Here is my progress on Christmas ABC's for the L*K Monday SAL. I found the upper corner and got the big letters in on my three words. I think next Monday will be mostly stitching in white.
Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments. I am inspired to comment more on the blogs I visit. It really does make a persons day.
Here's a question for you... Would you like a short video on the workings of my StitchMate? I know when I was researching I had a hard time finding pictures that adequately described what it did and how it worked. I love the dumb thing. I'm still only a hand and a half stitcher, but I'm working on it!
And lastly... Don't forget my small Giveaway that ends Saturday. Details on how to enter are listed on this entry.
Hugs and Stitches,
