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?

I am so out of shape too!!! As soon as I have had this baby I will make it my new yrs goal for 2008. I am just so tired all the time and I hate it. Your AW is looking fab! I have a nose, an eye and a bit of a mouth on Twilight Shimmer now - will post a pic after the SAL. xx

Oooh your HAED looks fantastic! I've always been skeptical about these art to cross stitch conversons but so far I'm quite impressed with the HAEDS I'm seeing being stitched!

Congratulations on joining a Spinning studio! I've just started gettion out on my bike ... as I'm off of all impact activities for some time!

That's a beautiful flower, you must be so proud to have it done :) Now it can look at you while you stitch!

I am confused by your comment on ladybug though - fudgey sent me the ACEO, so I don't need to stitch it is what I meant. Did you think I was going to? I had planned to at one stage, but I think I will just keep the card!
