Over the weekend I worked on Wild Thyme Fairy, and now she has legs!

The first time I stitched a DMC flower fairy someone (maybe Phyllis) suggested stitching the skin in petit point, and I love the way it turns out.

We had a busy weekend, lots of errands, but my favourite was buying a new laptop - a Christmas and birthday present from Eddy's Grandad. I've not had chance to do anything much other than surf the web, but I love it so far. I'm trying to organise my files on the desktop before transferring them here, so there's nothing on it yet!! Amazingly I got £20 trade in for my old laptop, which I bought in 2002... due to a minor internal battery issue that particular laptop thought it was still 2002, which could be a little confusing when looking for the most recent version of a file!!

It was WW tonight, and I lost 3lb, making up for the lack of weight loss last week. That's 16lbs or 1 stone 2 since I started, and I'm delighted. Today I wore jeans a size smaller to work :) I seem to have mostly lost weight off my legs. I just hope my belly catches uo soon... I'd like to lose another 5lbs before we go to the States. We'll see.

Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment - I don't say this very often, but I really do appreciate each and everyone.

Happy stitching

Beautiful work so far on the fairy. I agree the petit point changes how her skin works in the piece. I will have to remember to do that on the next piece I have with a person.

Congrats on the weight loss!
