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!

Great progress on your WIP! I can relate to the clothes. I don't want to dress too young and have everyone talking about me and I am tired of wearing old lady clothes. If you find a solution, let me know.

Congratulations Louanne on the amazing progress of Fragile. She looks so cool! I would have joined in the retired artist SAL but "someone" wouldn't let me as my Purple Orchid was denied - LOL! All good. You sound really happy about your weight loss so I'm really happy for you. Stay healthy and beautiful. Good luck with all the stitching, your work is always stunning!
