Disney Table Runner and Sistine Chapel



I started page 4 today.   It doesn't look like much progress but when I was comparing it to the next section, I go so excited!!!!  It seems that these symbols overlap majorly so I won't have to stitch as much on the next section!!! Yea!!!  Little things!  BTW...no Sistine Chapel next weekend.  I am taking my mom and niece India to see Disney On Ice in Little Rock!!!!!  We will be leaving on Saturday, seeing the show on Sunday Afternoon and then a 3 hour trip home.  I plan on taking my Disney ornaments to stitch on while traveling and the hotel stay.


I started my Disney Table Runner this week.  Here is Miss Minnie Mouse in her pink snow suit.  The snowball is stitched in 775, I think when I get it outlined, it will look much better!

Weightloss: Big News...I have to put on a bathing suit next weekend!!!!!!   We are staying at a hotel with an indoor pool and I have to swim with my niece!!!!!!

Last night was the dinner at the club.  I was getting dressed and Mark let me know that the dinner was more Jeans and Polo Shirts than the dress I had ready to wear.  So, I pulled down this pair of jeans that I haven't worn in years, thinking....just maybe..  They fit!!!  Size 8 jeans fit and I could wear a belt with them!!!!  Awesome feeling.  Best part, even after eating bacon wrapped shrimp,  chips and salsa, and for dessert New York Cheese cake topped with strawberries and whip cream, I didn't even have to undo the top button!!!!  I saved all my calories for this dinner and I enjoyed every bite!  I even treated myself to a hot chocolate because it was chilly last night!!!

It was back to the diet today!  My DH grilled me some Chicken thighs for my lunch this week!!!  I love that he grills enough on Sunday that I don't have to worry about my protein for lunch during the week.

Congratulations on the weight loss!! Love the Disney table runner - I hate stitching things like that snowball though as it sort of looks invisible until it's outlined. Enjoy the show - I bet it's amazing!
