Goblin Tree - Linda Ravenscroft - Update

This is a retired chart from Linda. I started it in Nov. 2006! I'm on the 12th page.
Here it is before the SAL this weekend: And this is it after:
I love stitching this chart! You can see a bit more of the tree on the right side. It's too big to fit in the scanner so the left side (the moon) is cut off. I will stay with this one through the SAL next weekend. I think it's the Swip/UFO SAL, and GT qualifies! She's the first full sized HAED I ever started, and she's a little more than half way done.
Fabric: Sugaqr Maple Fabrics - French Vineyard, 28 ct. Lugana
Stitch: 1 X 1 Full cross
Floss: DMC
Start Date: Nov. 2006

Health News: I'm going to Physical Therapy (3 X's a week) and it is helping. I always feel better when I leave there. I am doing the exercises they gave me to ease the back pain, and it's working.
Still sticking to my Transitions Lifestyle plan, and eating right. I think I'm down a total of 12 pounds right now, but I have to hold on to see the real number when they weigh us next time (I think that's in 2 weeks). I am noticing that my jeans are falling off me. I even put them in the dryer! (Normally and un-heard-of occurance!) I am going to pull out a few pairs I saved that are one size smaller and try them on today. Wish me luck!

Nice progress Louanne!! I just commented on the HAED blog that you were close to a finish, but now I saw the complete design. It is a little more still to stitch. Keep up the good work!

Great progress on Goblin Tree Louanne, full sizes really are a labour of love aren't they. I'm back working on Cabin In The Woods at the moment.
Congrats on the weight loss as well and thanks for your comment on the HAED BB about my holiday success, I appreciate it. Good luck with those jeans!
