Gift, Travelling Sticher and Slimming World

I had a lovely gift in the post this week- Jules (over the pond) sent over the Quaker Medallion chart, it's lovely and definately high up on my to stitch list :) I have a return something ;) to send over, hopefully I can get it inthe post Tuesday so watch out for postie Jules - it may take a few days to get to you.

Now I have finished on Tina's RR - and before the next RR arrives which should be in the next few days - I am going to work on my Travelling Stitcher. This is from Chris' SAL. This should have been finished in January oops :( but I am only managing about half an hour stitching a day and not every day so this year I am really slow and behind on my usual amount of HDs.

This week I finally managed to achieve my 2 stone award at Slimming World :) I lost 3 pounds which also meant I was given Slimmer of the Week and because I have been logging my walking with Ruby and my once a week at the gym I also achieved my Bronze Award for the Body Magic.

Life here has been very busy - nothing special just normal family life
and work.Today we went to Fenstanton again just outside Cambridge forPhilippa's dress fitting. We had a lovely lunch on the way back at a pub we found last visit - so of course we can do the same again when we go backina few weeks to fetch the finished dress :) We bought a beautiful hair clip as Philly wasn't too keen on a tiara, I just need to book her into the hairdressers at Easter for a practice on how to have it up.

Well that's all from me for today, thanks for popping by to read my news, happy blogging :)

Lovely quaker chart Clare and travelling stitcher looks good.
Congratulations on all those wonderful slimming achievements.
Sounds like you and Philippa had a lovely day out. I need to start prom dress shopping soon.

You are so very welcome for the Quaker pattern. It's a pretty simple design and fairly quick stitch. I think I managed to get it done over 2 evenings.

Congrats on the slimming achievements! Keep up the great work on that!

Travelling stitcher looks lovely. You are way more organised than me on the prom front. Eloise's is in July is Philly's sooner than that?

Philly's prom is 24th June but we are so busy I wanted it sorted. We started looking early as some schools here are much earlier so the dresses get less and less in the shops - however as you know we went much further a field in the end.
