Cinderella's Castle is FINISHED!!!!!!


I am so happy to finish a UFO!!!!!!   I just love this design!!!! Every time I look at it I just smile!!!  This is my 5th UFO finish this year!!!!  This is a retired design that I actually received off 123stitch's weekly wishlist.    The person that send it had actually finished about 1/4 of the design so instead of starting it over I just decided to start stitching where she left off....I mean..Why waste a good stitched piece.  I did check it to make sure there were no errors and all was well!!!!!

I needed a little bit of pixiedust this week after everything we went through at school.  See the previous post because it was heartbreaking.   On Friday,  I took the day off to rest after everything that happened.  Mark and I spent the rainy day watching the entire season of Revenge on Netflix.   We got all caught up and ready to start the new season.   I have been stitching on my HAED- A Wintery Heirloom because I need to finish a tree....If you have been reading for a while then you know I HATE stitching the trees on this design because it is nothing but confetti stitches.  UGH!!!!  I will post an update of it after I finish the tree....I hate this tree.  Just so you know!!!!

My diet hasn't been that great since all that has been going on.  I have lost 4.4 lbs!!!!!   I had an Idea to try on the dream pair of pants and take a picture.  I dug them out, put them on and they only came up to Mid-Thigh....I decided not to take that picture!  You have no need to see my fat or my underwear!  HEE HEE....Going to put on the pants once a month....hoping they will fit sometime!!

Beautiful finish, and I can see how much you're going to enjoy having it framed and hanging in your home. Keep up the good work on the weight loss. I know it's hard during such emotional times, but you're doing a great job!

Congratulations on a wonderful finish! Thanks for the link to the 123Stitch forum.

What a great idea to try on the same pair of jeans, once a month until they fit!
