Success


It was my second weigh in at Slimming World last night and I lost another 2.5 pounds :) I am so pleased especially as I was so good over the weekend with everyone here. I really stuck to it. I just need to lose 1/2 a pound next week to reach my first 1/2 stone:)

Stitching wise I managed to do the next flower on my perennial garden last night as part of JA UFO night. I realised that I am turning the fabric as I stitch so the crosses down the side lie in a different direction to the ones on top LOL It means that top and bottom will match and left and right sides will match - I looked at it from a distance as if it was framed on the wall and I'm sure it will look ok - it is not filled in stitching so will not be as noticeable - I'm certainly not froggin' or changing now.

The weather has turned so nice and the spring flowers are looking beautiful. I just popped outside and took a few piccies before posting - enjoy:)
























Enjoy the sunshine - have fun.
