Yesterday evening I finally finished the back stitching on the knight panel of FT:
Fantasy Triptych (c) Teresa Wentzler
I love the way the image 'pops' after the bs is done. This seems to have been a goal for months and months, but I've not really been in the mood for TW. Or maybe it's the unwieldy wide frame which has been putting me off! I put a couple of lengths into the maiden panel tonight. I do have itchy fingers for a new start though. I have a Michael Powell kit (which I bought of Michael in person at Harrogate 2 years ago), a Maria Scharrenburg fairy (night) and a cute classic Pooh (Pooh and Eeyore) which I'm trying to chose between.... I'm not feeling drawn to my other WIPs at all.
It was ww again tonight and I lost another 2.5 lbs, a total of 13 lbs so far. I'm losing weight a little more radpidly than is recommended, but am eating all of my daily points over the course of a week (I tend to save a few and have some treats on the weekend). Hmmm. I suspect this week might change the rate of weight loss though... it's my mum's birthday at the weekend and me, mum and Michelle are having a girlie day shopping (with a light lunch out) then in the evening we are going to an Italian restaurant. We've chosen one that's WW friendly - Michelle is at goal weight, and mum has just joined as well (we are a great support network!!). BUT... I've just been asked to take our guest speaker out for a curry tomorrow night. One day of splurging I can manage. Pretty easily. But two??? And one is a curry... nightmare. I need to make sure I go swimming several times this week, otherwise I'll suffer my first gain.
Thanks for all the words of encouragement about my weight loss - it's going so well so far, and I really appreciate the kind comments you all make. My back is all good again thankfully - taking it easy on Saturday really paid off.
