Pre-IHSW

IHSW this weekend! Boyfriend is sitting next to me being supportive and giving me foot rubs while I stitch. I am certainly not going to complain. I'll be stitching Mario this weekend, so here goes.

Before:


After (and pre-IHSW):



Mario - darklilac.com self made chart
Stitching on 22 count white Aida
2 threads over 1 with DMC


In other news,  I'm on a diet. I couldn't be whinier about it. Waaaaaaaah! I want to be at 135 and I am at 149. Well, 149.4, if we're going to be honest about it. Now about those chocolate covered cherries I just got...

Good luck with the diet I've been struggling for months to take 10 lbs off this is a hard time of year to do it too!

What a treat to get foot rubs while stitching!

Great progress, and I love the supportive foot rub idea! The colors really do look amazing on 22ct with 2 strands, I get so much show through on my HAEDs with 25ct 1 stand.
