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!

Isn't it funny how some pieces get to the bottom of the pile. She is stunning. I love this set of Angels.
Congratulations on reaching your goal weight.

Hi Beatrice,

Congrats on reaching your goal
weight!!! That is fantastic!!
As someone who is just tentatively
embarking down that long and
intimidating road I can surely
appreciate the challenges and the
will power required to achieve
that success.

How lovely to see Nordic Angel
back and getting some loving
and attention. She is a beauty
and really deserves to be
finished and shown off.

The stitching retreat looks
like it was a blast. And the
food!!!! Oh my. Your pictures
had me drooling on my keyboard,
and on the cat sleeping in my
arms...she didn't appreciate
that I'm afraid. Lol! Someday
I will get to one of those
things....but it's a long trip
to Brighton from here.

Oh Beatrice!! How I would have
loved to have attended one of
the performances at the Empire
Theatre that you participated
in a few weeks ago. I love the
music of both Phantom and Les
Miserables and would have so
enjoyed that show. And lucky
you to get to sing all that
incredible music. I sing it
too, but only when safely within
the confines of my own home,
and without witnesses save for
the cats, who have the good
grace not to laugh...or cry
while I'm warbling away!

Hope you had a great weekend.
Saturday was gorgeous and sunny
here. Today, not so much.

Congratulations on reaching goal, that's fantastic. Good luck with the maintence program, you've done so good I'm sure you'll do fine with that as well. Angel is looking so pretty, glad to see she's out and being worked on. Fun earlier pictures of the retreat too, looks like a wonderful time.
