This is the top of the decorative border for one block of the Chatelaine Rose Quilt. There are 16 blocks, and we get one or two blocks a month. So far I have the first two to stitch. I'm still gathering my materials, which are going to be pretty pricey. I'll add the beads at the end since I don't want them to get in the way of my Qsnaps. This piece is huge--I have lots of fabric to manage as I stitch.
I've taken a short break from My Stitching Treasures. I started an over-one peacock in the wrong place, and now I have to rip it out. Ugh. All I have left is the top block and the satin-stitched border.
I need to get working on my Just Nan RR and another exchange piece. So much to do!
Diet: I've been doing well on my diet. I think I've lost 8 pounds so far, which is water weight. Being this heavy, it's easy for me to lose 10 pounds in the first week. The following weeks will be harder.
Reading: When I start reading, I go nuts. I finished Mercedes Lackey's Sanctuary and loved it. Then I devoured L.E. Modesitt's Wellspring of Chaos, and I'm now reading Ordermaster. I may have to see if they have any more out in paperback.
