I got a sticker :)

Yippee Yippee I have lost my first half a stone (7 pounds) at Slimming World - in just three weeks. I only lost half a pound this week but that was all I needed to get to my first half a stone. I'm finding it ok, not missing anything yet and I don't really feel as if I am on a diet. For reaching this goal I got a lovely star stitcker to go on my book, only a little thing but it does feel good even at my age to get a "star" sticker LOL.

We are going to a 40th birthday party in a couple of weeks, black tie do so I needed a new dress. I hate clothes shopping as I always feel fat and frumpy BUT last night I found a perfect dress in Debenhams. It fits perfectly, no lumps anywhere, well apart from a very nice cleavage LOL. I am so pleased because I was getting a little worried about finding something and nothing in my wardrobe fits. I'm not bothered now if I don't loose any weight for the next two weeks because the dress fits perfect as I am, I will be good though.

I have stitched another two ornaments for Miss-tree, shoes and a handbag this time, as part of JA Monthly Stitch-a-long. I think next month I will do some hats for a change.












I have been stitching but the items are secret for a few more days, sorry. I'm stitching a book mark as one of the gifts for my friend who's 40, hopefully I can share that tomorrow as it's nearly finished. I did make this welcome card for a friend and her partner who have just bought their first house.
and this was the card I made my mum for Mother's Day :)

I haven't done any work on my Perennial Garden tonight for JA UFO Night, but I might take it to bed and do half an hour. If not I will work on it tomorrow, I'm not sure which flowers are next.

I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day, happy stitching.

Having worked in schools I can safely say "Never underestimate the power of the sticker" ;D
