I received my wonderful Easter parcel from Angela last week, and have been unable to take a pic due to the camera going walkies.
Angela stitched me a beautiful pillow, and what makes this pillow soo special is that it is Angela's first attempt on the sewing machine. She did an amazing job and my little long pillow looks great in my smalls basket. She also stitched me a fantastic pinkeep with a scissor pocket in the back, which to my surprise also hid a pair of scissors for me, too cute. In my parcel Angela sent a pile of fabric for finishes, a bag load of ribbon, ric rak and tassels and some GAST threads. Thank you Angela, I love what you made for me.
I started work on my ASOE Spring ornie over the weekend and finished the stitching, now just to finish it off.
I havent mentioned much about my weight loss regime for a while, however I am still plodding along. I read an amazing book called The Gabriel Method which talks about losing weight without dieting, you use visualization and take vitamins and other supplements for your body that help to make your body want to be thin. It sounds strange I know, but it actually works, I have lost heaps of cms from all over since putting into action this method and also continuing to go to the gym three times a week and healthier eating (not dieting) is changing my body. Not much has come off the scales as yet, as I had to have some tests done which related to some hormone inbalances which were stopping this from happening, but I have hopefully got that under control and soo far have come down 2.7 kilos. Hopefully now that my hormones are being sorted out the weight will start to drop off aswell. YAY!! If anyone would like some information on this book, please feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to help you. The author is from here in Western Australia, but I know he has travelled to the States promoting his unique methods.
Until next time, happy stitching.
