Stitching & Wii Fit

My rotation is going really well. I have finished the centre white stitches on the Just Nan piece. I can now start the speciality ones. I'm not really keen on stitching in white as the stitches sometimes look a bit uneven, but they do look better when the surrounding stitches have been done.
I have finished an made up my bookmark for the private exchange I organised. Opening day is 1st October so I must send it off soon. I'm going to start the JA Monthly Challenge piece this weekend and I must start the autumn and winter exchanges pieces. I'm not sure yet as to what to stitch but thhat's part of the fun.

DH managed to get me a piece of glass today for the ornate frame I have. We have a matching mirror in the hall which was my grandmothers. I had never seen one anywhere else but one Mother's Day we went to Ironbridge. There in a charity shop I found this matching frame, it had a silver dish in it but I have used it to frame a round robin I did a while back. It's looks great with grandma's mirror.

Everyday I've managed to do 30 minutes on the Wii Fit and in the first 4 days lost 3lb - but I've put 2lb back on hee hee! I'm not worried as really it's a weekly not daily weight change that matters and fingers crossed that should show a loss if only 1lb. I'm really enjoying doing it and so far it doesn't feel like a chore - time will tell.

Still no news on DS's work experience but we keep sending off the letters. I do hope we can find him a place soon.

DD has had her science module result back - this is a third of her final GCSE in triple science - and she achieved a grade A*. Fingers crossed she can do the same in the next two modules. She is predicted some very good grades in all her subjects.

    The frame looks fantastic with your RR. I would never have thought of using something like that to frame stitching but it looks fabulous. :0)
