Round Robin is home and 2 finishes


In my ILCS group, I run the Round Robin (RR) for anyone who wants to join us.  We started this in August and it came home earlier this week!  It is the LK design titled "Wouldn't it be great" chart.  I saw this at my Cross Stitch Retreat in CO and just loved it!!!  I want to thank the ladies who worked on it....

WALL-E
 Here is my first ornament finished...the shadows don't show his colors very well...but in order to show his colors great, you can't see the pretty sparkly fabric....
Dale
Dale is my 2nd finish....In case you don't know how to tell Chip and Dale apart, it is really easy: As you can see Chip has a Chocolate Chip nose and dale has a red nose....


Weight -
I am having issues with my weight.  I was consistently losing for a while, however I have hit a plateau and have actually gained a couple of them back.  I changed my exercise routine and moved from the Wii to the treadmill.  I am hoping by walking faster and eventually turning it into a jog, I will start losing again.  However, I have lost inches so that makes me feel better.

Have a great day!!!

You (and your RR friends) have certainly been busy. Thank goodness for the inches lost; losing weight can be such a confusing challenge!

Super great finishes. I love the sparkle on the fabric.

Dale is so cute! Inches are always better to loose ... after all you might have started building up muscle (which is heavier)/or weighed yourself in heavier clothes/ or scales were put not in the exact spot as before. Good luck! I need to get on the loosing weight after Christmas bug, but I'll wait for 2 weeks till after exams (don't fancy sitting one of them and fainting).

I think the wii fit can only help so far unless you zumba. Don't be downhearted: you will also be building muscle as you get fit which is heavier than fat. Going to something more aerobic is def. the way to go. Good luck. I love the stitching; Chip n Dale are brilliant...I love them but we never seem to see them anymore!

Congrats on all the finishes Vickie. Your RR piece is gorgeous. I love your Disney ornaments. (I see you are a big Disney fan also). I have the Disney cross stitch book you showed a few posts back, you said it had 43 ornaments in it. Mine doesn't. Where did you get the charts for Wall-e and Dale? Any help would be great.

Losing inches is what's important!! Great job! Stitching looks great too! Thanks for educating me on Chip, I never knew that!

I did not know that tidbit of trivia about Chip & Dale. Thanks for sharing.

Your finishes look cute, and congrats on getting your RR back. It looks great.

Your ornies are adorable! I have the little kit for Wall-E with a frame. I never thought of using my own sparkly fabric. It's perfect!

Love your LK finish! Everyone did a great job on it. I have that in my someday pile.

The ornaments are cute - I love Dale :)

Good luck with the weight - you are doing so great, I am sure the routine change will do the trick.

Gorgeous stitching. I love your wall-ee he's my favourite. Weight loss can do that though. Keep measuring your inches and maybe even change up your food. Change your breakfast maybe that could help as well.
