Weekend Ramblings and a Cross Stitch

Monday, February 25, 2013

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a lovely weekend! As much as my husband hates to hear it, I had a great weekend! lol Him and the kiddo are sunning it up in Florida (which isn't  bad way to spend your pre-spring vacation) and I'm at home looking after the 4-legged family members. On Saturday, I woke up on my own free will, ate breakfast while reading the online news at my leisure. Then I headed out to run some errands and to take my first Pump It! class at the YMCA. Holy cow am I (still) sore today! We did some weight training and cardio work and my arm muscles feel bruised! lol  Then in the evening, I made a couple of cards.

I also started cutting up some fabric for a mini quilt that I'm making my my little girl's American Girl doll bed. We found an old canopy bed at an antique store a month ago, and I thought a cute little quilt would look so darling on it! I should have the pattern done by the end of the week, so I'll share it with you then.

Remember how I said I had stayed up into the wee hours of the mornings working on a cross stitch I had just picked up? A few of you had asked to see it when I was done, so here it is!

Isn't it cute?! The design is by Little House Needleworks and it's the first in a 12 month series of sheep-themed ornaments that I am IN LOVE witth! I'm planning on finishing them just like the company suggests, so I can hang them on my Christmas tree this year. I've already ordered February's pattern and can't WAIT to get my hands on it! I suspect I'll have a few more late nights in my future! lol

Because I'm the gluten for punishment that I am, I went back to the YMCA yesterday to take my first every yoga class! But unfortunately they had already started before I got there, so I did some treadmill work instead and burned 400 calories too! Woohoo! I'm not sure what's gotten into me because I also signed myself up for a spinning class this morning!! At 5:45am!! I think all this free time has gone to my head! lol Hopefully I'm not too sore tomorrow....what was I thinking?! 

I'll be back tomorrow with another Tuesday Morning Sketch card, so I hope you can pop in again then!

Take care!

LOL, Sandra! You are going to be a BUSY lady - but, oh, so fit and healthy and crafty!! :) Your sheep finish is perfect! I'm hoping the next pattern will be in my hot little hands this week. I'm looking forward to stitching it!! The AG quilt sounds adorable. I actually bought myself an AG doll at the warehouse sale this last summer. My college age DD and I each picked one out. It was so fun! :) Have a wonderful day!!

I love these ornaments and have yet to start mine. I am having some hand problems so my stitching time is very limited. I wish I was so industrious on the exercise! Wow, I am impressed. I guess working is getting in the way of my hobbies - but then I think I gotta work to pay for them! Anyway, I just had to comment for a change.
