Well firstly sorry for not posting any photo's of what I am eating, I have been having a bit of bother with not sleeping. I think there is far too much going on in my little head and its just keeping me awake :(
Well I have been stitching... but have stopped and got side tracked a few times. Its terrible how quick I do get side tracked :(
I bet your wondering what I got side tracked on?? Ha ha ha the internet is amazing! I was as they say surfing! Looking at the most amazing cross stitch designs... the whole thing with looking at the designs I was looking at is a new thing, a recent one. See its only due to looking at fellow stitchers blogs that I began to realize there are OH so many lovely and varied designs out there. And to be honest it was only very recently I decided to go it alone and stitch from a chart and not a kit.
I love the freedom of charts... the more I look the more I am amazed. I mean take the thread/floss I thought there was only Anchor and DMC ... how very very wrong was I. There are loads of hand dyed threads and silks, probably much more too?!... ooooh :) It is clear that I have lead the equivalent to a sheltered life in the stitching world I think. I need to make up for lost time!!
So yes, I have been looking around and WOW so great things to stitch out there...
Some Lizzy Kate designs I hope to stitch some time, as yet not had the pleasure..
There are OH so many lovely designs... how do you choose?
Then I looked at Country Cottage Needleworks... so adorable...
Goodness their designs are beautiful.
I the found Prairie Schooler..... OMG!!! Where have I been???? Some truly lovely designs...
These and many many more are wonderful.... I do hope someday I have the pleasure to stitch some :)
Its so hard choosing designs as there are so so many out there, #i just picked these few but I am sure there are many more...if you know of lovely designs please feel free to leave a message pointing me in the right direction. I need assistance as its really all very new to me.
I shall give you a little back ground...
Well I have been writing this blog for a little over 1 year now... I started to to motivate myself and to keep myself on track with my weight loss. Its true I love to stitch and I had previously slowed down. My love for stitching has turned a corner I feel as now I have the courage to try new things. To venture away from kits.... its still a little scary! Not only that I until recently only ever stitched on aida... I have tried 25 count Dublin linen and love it. I think all those years I never stitched on anything other than aida as I thought it far too difficult. Hoe wrong was I !!! It seems my stitching is taking over my blog! ha ha ha I think I will keep posting what I eat as like I say its keeping me on track.... not only that I have spoken through FB group to other stitchers lacking motivation to lose weight... the one reason I started this blog was to just hope to inspire 1 person.... to want to change, to want to lose weight, to get up and try. And it that is happening through the things I am doing is amazing :)
As it stands I really have no idea what to stitch next.... any suggestions??
I promise tomorrow to post some photo's of what I am eating!
Keep smiling :)
