Summer Ball and Sistine Chapel

Here it is!! Page 5 completed!!!  Just 1 more to go.  I thought I wanted to finish it but then I got stash in the mail!  My long awaited green fabric for my Disney table runner came in the mail!  It is the only project I haven't started as of yet and I want to work on it!!  So Summer Ball will have to wait. 

Page 3 of Sistine chapel is completed.  Normally I take a picture of it the way I am stitching it.  Upside down. However, I flipped it so I could see what it actually looked like.  3 more pages and I will have finished  the first panel.

Weight Loss

Friday night Mark asked me what my plans were for next weekend because there is to be a dinner at the club. He rarely asks me to go the club for anything and he made a point of letting me know other wives would be there so I agreed to go.  I had planned to go to Tulsa with my stitching friends for the day, but this is more important.  Also, it is prom and I had thought about popping in there to see all my little ducks dressed up.  Busy weekend!  
Since we are going to a dinner, I needed a new dress.  I hate shopping for clothes because I was always having to buy a bigger size....not this time!!!!  I was able to buy a size 8 dress!!!!  This is 2 sizes smaller than the last time I went dress shopping!!!  It felt so great to fit into a lower size!!!  

I am down 15 lbs. and have another 15 to lose.  Slow and steady wins the race.  I have been trying to use the couch to 5k  in order to get me off my but and running.  I try and run 3 times a week but this is how I feel when I run:

Summer Ball looks wonderful and so does the Sistine Chapel! Can't wait to see your table runner started.

Congrats on the weight loss! I think I've gained what you lost!

Summer Ball looks really amazing! If only it was as fun to stitch as it is to see it almost finished, I'd work harder on mine!

I'm amazed at your progress on the Sistine Chapel. It's going to be quite a work of art - again. :o). My daughter also uses the couch to running program and she's making great strides (pun originally unintended but I rather like it haha). Keep up the good work.
