Health update: So I have been on a diet since January 4th and have managed to gain 3 lbs. My trainer says it is muscle but this is very frustrating. Last Tuesday, I went to the doctor for a checkup/blood work. As I was talking to the doctor, I explained that I was feeling tired, couldn't seem to loose weight and some days feeling overwhelmed. The doctor told me that he wanted to draw some blood and do a full panel because "I am at that age". I guess being in your mid forties puts you in the "that age" category where things start going wrong!!! I go back this Tuesday to find out the results...will keep you informed.
Stitching Questions: I am the type of stitcher that has a hard time letting myself start a new project when I know I have 5 unfinished projects...I really want to start a new one but I have trouble letting myself do it!! What about you?? Are you a must finish the current project! or What the heck....lets add another to the pile!!!!
Stitching Updates: When I wasn't dozing in my chair, I did manage to make some stitching progress... I did finish page 5 of Victorian Winter!! it is looking so pretty!!!!

This is my Friday night stitching on A Wintery Heirloom. To be honest, I also worked on it Thursday night. I finished VW page on Wednesday so I just moved to this one. If you were wondering if I was drunk when stitching since I stitched in a weird diagonal pattern...I was totally sober!!!! HAED's Facebook group is having a contest and this quarter you had to stitch in a diagonal pattern. There are going to be 6 or 7 challenges and you get a free chart for each challenge you complete!!!

I finally pulled out my Faery Tales to work on and I honestly missed working on this piece!!!! I haven't worked on it since last November!!!! I know I planned to work on it only on the weekends...but I might have to scratch that idea. As you can see, I am back to the big rock! This scene holds Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. I want to see them come alive!!!!

So here is my delima..I love this pattern! I have the threads ready and the pattern printed out. The fabric is cut out and sewn around the edges. The only problem??? I have 2 projects close to being completed!!!! This design is 98 pages!!!!!! It will be beautiful when finished but it is a little overwhelming. So I am trying to decide...do I finish my two projects that are close to being done or just bit the bullet and make the first stitch????/
This is the fabric for my ladies embroidering. I laid my IPad Air in the middle so you could get an idea of why I am feeling a little overwhelmed. It is 44 x 32!!!
