This is pretty exciting for me!!
I reach my Goal weight today and now go on Maintenance for 6 weeks.

Even after that lovely retreat..I guess I WAS a good girl and watched my portions


My friend Christin has convinced me to work on the Nordic Angel that was in the very, very, very ,bottom of my stitching bag.

I just don't know how she ended up there....... Hmmmm maybe all of those starts got in the way.
Anyway she's back out and I put a lot of back stitching in her wings and sash.
She is back in rotation.

Have a great day and stitch with happy fingers!

What a wonderful time

I have lots of pictures to show so I won't spend a lot of time writing this down.
The one thing I must say...
Dan and Ann "THANK YOU" so much for putting this great weekend together,
Dan is a fantastic Chef and Ann is the hostess with the Mostess! OK that was 2 things!

Look at this wonderful food!!!!

Decadent dessert!

We had 4 ladies celebrating their Birthday within a couple of weeks of one another.
So I had a cake made for them!

LtoR .... Marie-Paule....Rebecca [back] ...Dani....Ann.... Happy Birthday !!!

I did a lot of stitching ,eating and catching up with stitching friends from near and far.
It was wonderful to see everyone!!



This week I will be catching up on my blogging and reading. We were without internet for 4 days and then I was away. So I will read as many as I can and comment as I catch up!
Have a great week and
Stitch with happy fingers.

The Phantom of the Opera.....

And Les Miserables.

This has been a week of absolutely NO Stitching.
It's about the singing,

I am preforming with the Command performance choir in a chorus for the production of the music from The Phantom and Les Mis.

We had a full dress rehearsal on Sunday...from 3pm until 8pm...yup a long day.
Last night was opening night and tonight we rap up with our 2nd performance. There will be a cast party after that.
We are having so much fun. This is a very professional production and it is very interesting to hear these amazing singers.

I will try and post a few more photo's later on. Today I only have these two taken at the dress rehearsal. I'm in the front row. Which is a bit nerve racking. But I'm OK with that.

This weekend at the retreat I will be back to my stitching.

I hope you all stitch with happy fingers and take care.

Weekend update.

I had a great time visiting at the Open house that Ann had at Knowledge and Needles!
It was fantastic, She had great things set up for sale from the Nashville convention . Lots of new designs.
I picked up some wonderful fabric and threads. A couple of little charts and will look again when I go back on Thursday to stitch!

It was great to see Dani and Christin.
And thanks Ann for a nice lunch!
I'm so happy you had a good weekend!

Today I had my Mom here for the day [our usual Sunday] But she and My DH watched the Curling so I got lots of stitching done. They are enjoying the Briar and There is no way I have any control of the TV while that is on!
I don't really mind!

I hope you all " stitch with happy fingers! "
