March Wipocalypse and Catching Up



I can't believe I let two Sundays slip by without my weekend updates.  Y'all know the last time I posted here I had a sinus infection and my stitching mojo was at a low ebb.  I basically whined about how I was tired of working on the jousting scene of Camelot Sampler.  Well since I was still pretty tired from said infection and I didn't do any treadmill workout for the week, I buckled down and made myself try to finish the background for most of the jousting scene.

Before....


After......
Sorry for the dark blurry shot - had to use my camera as it was still on the frame.

Thankfully I'm now back up to speed with my treadmill workout again and have managed one mile every day this last week.  Which reminds me; I also missed my weigh-In post for the first Sunday of the month.  I have to say February was a hard month to stay on track.  One week I'd only do 3 days a week another it would only be 2.  Then there was the last week of February, I didn't do anything because I was sick.  Which made my water weight bounce up and down all month long; the good news is I didn't gain any, but the bad news, I didn't lose anything either.  It's getting to the point where I don't trust what the scale says, I'm much more inclined to notice how loose or tight my jeans are. Hopefully I'll have better news to report at the beginning of next month.

Just as a side note.  You know the one inspirational TV program that really keeps me motivated to stick to my exercise routine - "My 600 lb. Life" that airs on the TLC channel.  Granted at the moment I'm only 223, but still it gives me the motivation I need to get back down to 177 again.





Now for this month's topic question.....
March 16 – Topic:  Show us your favorite places to stitch. 

Since my bedroom is so crowed and my camera only has a 10 second timer on it I'm afraid all you get is a picture of where I sit in my bedroom (minus the stuff that is packed on either side of the chair including my floor stand OTT lite and magnefier). I designed and had a friend help me make the scroll frame cradle and table you see in the picture. I needed it to hold the 36 inch scroll frame I made for TW's "The 12 Days of Christmas" project. Since it's adjustable I can use it for any size scroll frame or slate frame.





Well that's it for this blog blurb.  Thanks for stopping by.

Your Camelot Sampler is gorgeous! I went to your other website and looked at ALL your finishes back to the beginning of time! I really admire how organized you are with all the details for each project.
