Getting on Track

I'm happy with the amount I've got done this week:

"Official Crazy Cat Lady" by Raise the Roof
...and this is my RR piece before I posted it this morning:

"Hearts Full of Love" by Jeremiah Junction
I'm now eagerly waiting for Gillie's RR to arrive from the US, so I can start stitching on it!

It has been a good week - Sammy went back to Uni last Sunday evening, so we have a pretty quiet house again! I lost 5lb in my first week of my diet, and also increased my exercise.  I'm going to start going to the gym again in the next week or two...I've let that slide over the last few months, too!  I think all the events of last year really affected me more than I realised, and I need to get my life back on track.

Next week is going to be hectic at work - I'm out and about around Lancashire with my tutoring on 3 afternoons, but I'll know what I'm doing with all the individuals by the end of the week.  As far as stitching is concerned, it's the turn of "Potpourri Heart" by The Sweetheart Tree:

"Potpourri Heart" by The Sweetheart Tree

I haven't touched this since I bought it from Nimble Thimble back in July 2012!  (I've really got to go back there..!)  I'm hoping to get a good amount done on it this week...The fabric has a slight sparkle to it, which isn't visible in the picture.

Happy Stitching!

Well done with the weight loss

The paw print fabric is fabulous and what a lot you've done on that one too.
Well done on the weight loss Lynn.
Your RR is a great choice, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has chosen to do this time.

And when it does, sigh, could you take a picture and send it to silly me who forgot to......? Thanks, Lynn

Well done on the cat lady!
