Fragile Heart Page 4 Complete

Here she is!
Page 4 down.  I've been working on her since last time I posted.  Since it's a yearly goal to complete her, I figured I'd better get my butt in gear.  I'll continue with her this week, till Thursday night.

Friday morning the rare 5th weekend Retired Artist SAL starts up on the board.  It only comes around about 4 times a year.  Goblin Tree is a retired chart so she will come out for a while.

Things around here have been so busy lately.  I've been dieting and I'm down 26 lbs.  I have about 8 lbs. to go, yet, but I had to get myself some new clothes.  I'm only 5" tall, so for every 5 lbs. I lose, I go down a size.  I started at a size 12 (well, almost bursting out of 12s), I've worked down to a 6.  Now the 6's are hanging a bit.  I have to wash and machine dry everything.  Gone are the days of hanging jeans out to dry for fear that they would shrink.  Now I'm trying to shrink them!  Who woulda thought?  So anyway, I've been out and about, shopping most days after work.  I haven't gotten a lot, but what I have purchased has been hard to find.  I'm not a teeny bopper, but I'm not an old lady either.  Who are these designers making clothes for?  They all look like they're for my 18 yr old niece or my 84 yr old MIL!  What to do if you're somewhere in the middle? (SIGH)

Well, that's enough for now, possums.  Have a Stitchy Week!

Goblin Tree - Linda Ravenscroft - 30 Sept. 2011 Update

I didn't get much time to work on her, but here's the before and after for last week.
After all these years I still love working on her.  I wish I could just continue and finish this page.  But, this week's SAL is Freebies & Smalls, so Fragile Heart is about to come out and play.  I have one yearly goal yet to complete and that's to finish FH.  I'm not anywhere near that goal, so I have to get stitching on it.

That's all, for now possums.  Have a delightful stitchy week!
