a little progress

As you can see either not much is happening or too much is happening and I haven't had a chance to write. Yes, it's been a little busy around here, but I'm not stitching like I wanted to. I worked split shifts all week last week and it does take a lot out of me. I love working with children, but they are starting to wear me out!

Block 8: Three Story with Dormers

Actually, this block is finished except for the embroidery around the tree. Since I noticed the other block's windows are not finished I'm going to work on those this month and get them out of the way. Today it's back to Dutch Duplex and finish it for sure, and then cross-stitching again. Oh, I'm not the greatest quilter, as you can tell. This is my first real hand applique quilt. Others I've done are on the machine, but my machine doesn't do the best of stitches. I would like to take a quilting class when work slows down a bit.

Saturday morning my cousin and I went to Weight Watchers. I really didn't want to go down that road again, but I must. She's desperate to get the weight off before her son's wedding in January, and I just want to fit back into my clothes again! By then we both should be at our goal weight or should I say, back to our goal weight!. Wish us luck!

Good Luck at WW, Tweety. I did it years ago and should find a place around here (I moved last year). I really need to do something too.
