I hope that everyone has had a great week. Thank you for all your kind comments about Lex and my M.A.Tipper sampler.
Things were pretty busy this week so I did not get much stitching done. I did receive 2 new sampler books to add to my library. The new Whitney catalog is fabulous as always and the other book has some great samplers in it too.
I worked Monday night at my 2nd job until 10pm, Wednesday I had dinner with 2 friends from my 2nd job that I haven't seen in about a year and Thursday night was EGA. It was my turn to be stitcher of the month and talk about my stitching. So, I brought a long a couple of my Southern samplers and talked about why I like stitching samplers. My friend is borrowing them for a lecture she is giving on Southern Samplers. There is no Powerpoint available so she will have stitched examples in stead. So my girls are on tour :) Lucky them :)
I also received these 2 magazines this week. I like both the samplers that are charted in SANQ and this issue of Just Cross Stitch has a couple of great designs. I really like the Blue Ribbon Designs chart. The last 2 issues have been really good.
After the fun I hit Trader Joe's to stock up and then headed home.
The beginning of the year I downloaded the Lose It app for my Ipad. It helps you set a weight loss goal and lets you track your food and exercise. The result is so far I have lost 10 pounds. It has taken some time but is not really drastic. So I will continue my slow and steady journey. actually finally let some of the girls talk me into a Zumba class on Friday. It was a lot of fun. I may have to find a class in Asheboro.
I really need to go stitch now. I have signed up for a spring exchange and will be taking a little break from my Bristol sampler. Maybe I will start to hunt down a chart that I want to stitch soon I have a couple of options in my mind but I think I need to search more.
Have a good evening and a great Sunday!
