Goblin Tree - A Face!!!!

Here she is after the HAED July SAL. She is a joy to stitch! I think I will stay with her till I finish the page.

Thank you all for the comments on ACEO Best Friend. I'll be back to that for the Wed. SAL this week. If any of you are skeptical about the Art 2 X-Stitch charts you see out there, I can tell you this... HAED is the BEST! The charting is awesome! They get it down to the last detail!

I've done 3 more classes since my last post. 2 half Spin and half floor, and 1 all floor. I am working through the muscle soreness, and starting to feel better. I am proud of myself. I've been in a slump for far too long (years), and it feels good to be pulling myself up and out of it!

Got that flower done!

Wheewh! (sorry the scan is crooked) The rest of this should move along fairly fast. BUT! The HAED SAL Challenge is this weekend, so I'll be back on Goblin Tree. Hope to get her face done during this one.

On a non-stitchy note (odd for me, I know) I joined StudioSpin+ for the next 12 months (unlimited classes). I was a good deal, and I know the girl that opened it (Brand New just this past weekend). So far I've done 2 spin classes and one "Burn, Body, Burn" (floor) class. I did 14 miles in the first spin and 12 in the second, each is about 45 - 55 minutes. It's quite a workout! I know I'm out of shape but I had no idea just how out of shape! WOWZERS! *"Can you guys slow down? The old, fat girl in the back can't keep up!"* LOL! Well, I'm trying, and before you know it, I WILL be keeping up! I WILL! Did I mention that I'm so sore today that I could barely get out of bed this morning?

ACEO Best Friend HD!

Page 1 & 2 happy dance!!!!! 2 more full pages and 2 partial pages to go!
I am not enjoying the 40 ct. Newcastle. I'll never stitch an HAED design on it again! It's so uneven! YUCK!
