Knight progress

This week I've really focused on the knight panel of FT. I've now finished all of the cross stitch, back stitch and over one stitching:

The bs looks tricky - I'm struggling to work out what colour goes where, so I've switched to Postman Pat for a little light relief. Last night I finished his head and hair:

Postman Pat, designed by me!

I've just got his hat to finish and then the personalisation. Hopefully he'll be finished by the end of the weekend, it would be nice to get another project ticked off the list - this is the last of my obligation stitching!

WW went well last week, another 2.5 lbs off. That's 6 in 2 weeks. Not bad given I had a leaving do with curry to negotiate. This week I am accruing saved points - I'm just not very hungry, and at work not having time to eat much. I enjoyed a dairy milk on Tuesday (and still saved points). Today I have lots of points left too (plus I earnt some by going swimming -making use of the expensive grym membership!) - which is good as I really fancy pizza! So tomorrow we are enjoying a Domino's... while still on plan. I'm quite impressed. This diet seems so much less faddy than anything else I've ever done before. We'll see if I stick to it though...

I love your TWD, it is beautiful as all of her designs are. I am a huge fan of any TWD.
Be always in stitches.

FT is looking great, I've always wanted to do this one. Great job on the weight loss too, WW really is pretty reasonable to follow.

Jo, well done on the weight watchers! Isn't 6lbs just awesome? WW isn't a crazy diet at all it is so liveable and flexible. I'm not sure if the program differs much between here and the UK, but you really should eat all your daily points, that's the minimum calories you need before your body goes into starvation mode, and when that happens you don't loose weight. I found at first very challenging to eat all my points. Todd just couldn't beleive that I was eating ALL THE TIME! But it worked!

FT is amazing! Don't worry you'll get that BS sorted out before you know it. Also all those 1/4 stitches almost make it obvious where you're going to go.

Good luck on getting Postman Pat done!
