Did I speak too soon??

...About sticking to "A-stitch-a-day"??!! Because have been sooo tired the whoole week. And I've not been able to pick up my stitch at all.

What can be worse, but that when I did pick it up last, I realized that I had made a mistake right at the tooop of the right hand arm of the V!!! So, had to frog out the entire right arm!! How frustrating!! Have not picked it up ever since.. Work has been really crazy and by the time I reach home am ready to crash in bed.

Hope to make up for all the lost time during the weekend. Wish me luck guys. And hope you had a much more productive week than I did.

Till my next update.. Take care.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

Hello friends. Hope you have been having a great start to the year. Mine has not been bad at all. Firstly, I have new followers!! Thank you soo much much for stopping over. It really has made my day.. should I say year!?

This is going to be a very quick post to update you all on my progress.

Before that, I baked some oatmeal - peanut butter over the weekend.
It was not bad, but could have been softer is what I felt. Recipe courtesy here.

Now for the stitchy update....
Am quite impressed with the progress, considering my speed!!! Guess the "a-stitch-a-day" thing is working :)
Oh yes, this is a new "V" and not the one I'd posted earlier. Am thinking how am going to finish this. How would a fringed effect look??!! Am not sure if the amount of aida I've around the stitching would be sufficient for the fringing. Any suggestions friends?

Thank you soooo much again for stopping by. I'm really encouraged by all your lovely comments :)

Till my next update.. Take care.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

New Start

..Literally, in many ways.

Firstly I have made a resolution !!! I know, I have never ever been one to take resolutions. But this time I thought I'd take up something workable for my own good. So, this is how it goes

1. A veggie a day
2. A fruit a day
3. A piece of choc a day (to whet my sweet tooth and not to deprive myself of anything)
and last but defffinitely not the least
4. (atleast) a stitch per day

I think (fingers crossed) that this is workable. I have not been taking very good care of my own health the last year, thanks to working in shifts. I still do work in shifts. But I don't want to be irritable all the time.

And friends, guess what??!! I do have a stitchy start too!! Great isn't it? Yes, I started working on V's ornament for her room. She changed the colour as well as pattern later!! Trust kids to be choosy. Now am doing it in pink on 18count Zweigart Aida. Am loving the way it's coming up. Sadly, there's no picture yet as I managed to do just a miniscule last night.

Ok folks, time to wrap up now. Till my next update.. Take care.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir
