Now don't throw stuff at me, but I am going to admit that I am not a big fan of Ms. Wall's charts. Her art is lovely, but not usually anything I would want to stitch, with this ONE exception, a dragon, and beautiful blues (my favorite color)! Plus, to tell the truth, they scared me! They looked like so much detail and I figured every other stitch would be a different color, and it would drive me mad. I am happy to report that is not the case. I am really enjoying this one.
Stats: 28 ct. Joblean - light blue, DMC Floss, 1 X 1 Full Cross.
Once again, here is the original:
The HAEDless SAL is this weekend so I will be working on A Bouquet of Cheryl. Expect an update on that after the weekend.
On the exercise/lifestyle change front I have some not so great news. I hurt my lower back (in class, I think) a week ago Monday (the 12th). I've continued going to classes and hoping that it would work itself out, but I just cannot ignore it anymore. My lower back is screaming at me on full volume. I called an orthopaedist on Tuesday and I can't get in till this coming Monday. I've made the decision to discontinue my classes until I get to the doctor and find out what it going on with my aching back. Sometimes it's a stabbing pain, all other times it's just a nagging like a tooth ache. I am continuing my healthy eating habits, I'm not giving up! I'm 'sticking to the plan'!
