What have you done today to make you feel proud?

Well I do feel proud of myself as I have exceded my June targets altho' I did not start my Blue Ribbon design I have all the floss ready to go, but look how much of Beatrice Potter I've done, last month I had only completed two motifs so I wanted to do three this month and I did more than three so I am well pleased!


I also completed the LHN sal which was 'Needleworks' I did accidently stitch the border in the wrong colour but didn't realise until I had nearly finished so I certainly wasn't going to frog all that and I like it with Almost Auburn colour, I think perhaps the darker colour would have been too dark. Fortunately I had enough of the Almost Auburn floss as I had bought more because the one I had disappeared.. couldn't find it any where and all of Nell's 'two-two's' were closely examined!!



Then I did a quick New Home card for my son Simon and Tracy as they have moved, so that was nice to stitch as an extra to my month's targets


And I have done quite a bit to my 'Cats' sampler, it is coming along nicely and in fact I am beginning to quite like stitching it altho' I have the three grey cat heads in the middle to do next and all those different colour greys, groan!!!

And I send my Exchange Heaven alphabet needle case to Edit in Spain, so I am very pleased with all my efforts for June... my weight?? Well I lost a pound and a half!! Better than gaining and this coming month I am definitely going to lose five pounds!!! Watch this space!

Congrats on the wight loss.
I did lose a few pounds lately but i'm afraid i'll gain it back again being stressed these days so i end up drinking 'cream of baileys'or red wine with chips....
