another ornament finished

I have another ornament finished. Only 3 more to go. I'd probably have another near finished but I had to stop and stitch a valentine chart for an exchange I'm in. I hope my partner likes what I stitched for her. I was looking through my stash for a valentine chart to stitch..do you know I have like none! I only have a few and those aren't what I would want to stitch for someone else. I might have to visit eBay some time today. LOL Anyways, as soon As i send my exchange partner her package I will post a picture of what I stitched for her. Today I am going to "finish it" Not sure how I will go about doing that. Pillow? wall hanging? Hmmm wish I had some of your all talent when it comes to this sorta thing.



Now for the best news ever! I started my news years diet. Started it on Jan. 3th. I weighed in on Saturday the 10th. I lost 8 pounds! YAaaaaaaaaY! I've been eating a lot of oatmeal, yogurt, soups and baked chicken. I walked 3 days, in the freezing cold, for about 35 minutes. I'm so happy that I lost. It feels great. Now for the others on my team, they didn't do so great. My sister and Sister in law are on my team. My sister didn't lose any and my sister in law lost 2.Which is great for them I guess but the other team lost a total of like 19 pounds! My family is doing a "biggest loser" contest. LOL It was an idea that I cooked up due to the fact that I hate dieting and exercising alone. If I have someone to help push me along I do so much better. But it seems like i'll have to do the pushing and tugging this week. My start weight was 231. I'd like to weigh 195 by summer. My goal weight is 165. That's still 10 pounds over weight but I think it's a good goal for me.

I have updated my sales album. I have all sorts of good charts in there. I even have Q-snaps with a cover for sale. I have decided that I hate q-snaps. Snaps just don't keep my fabric as tight as I like it. So I'll stick to my scroll frames. Here is the link to my album. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v11/beccaC/sale%20or%20trade/
email me if you find something you would like to buy. Shipping is extra of course.
I guess that's it for today. Hope all is doing well.
