Stitching weekend

I spent loads of time stitching, I am totally hooked on this sampler

Each bit I add I love, it all works so perfect together, I have to buy silks today, I require 11 of them, but I had all the colours, except 4, makes stitching this cheap. I am stitching on Zweigart, Lugana, 25 ct, the fabric has perfect squares, I purchased a few packs, a couple of weeks ago, it was on special in our local Hobbycraft.

 Stitching so far, I am working on the third page of the top row, it will fit in my frame with inches to spare.

I am having my first day out today, Su my daughter, has the day off, we are going for a small shopping trip, with a stop for coffee, and then back home, not out for long, but it will be nice to be out. Hubby Kev has a days golf planned with friends, they have left early to go to a different course. Fliss is home with her boys, they are off to see Grandma tomorrow who lives 5 hours drive away in Manchester.

Yesterday Fliss, Steve and the boys came to visit, it was another sunny day and we sat in the garden, it was pure pleasure to watch the boys play football, with laughter and giggles they each had a ball to kick about.

My weight loss is coming along, I am steady losing 1-2lbs each week, I use "myfitnesspal" on my iPad, it records all my food and real excise each day.Today I will also start wearing my pedometer, all I hope will help me increase my fitness.
