College 26

I didn't stitch as much as I wanted to but I still got a decent amount done. I backed off stitching for a bit to give my hand time to heal completely, and I think it's good now. Still going to be careful but for the most part, I think I'm good to go! Lots of Boyfriend foot rubs while I was stitching, too, which was awesome. Heading back home today and as it's a gloomy, cold, and dismal day I look forward to stitching some more when I get back. Now, for the progress photo.

Before:


After:


Next time maybe I'll have two page finishes as the next one is a very tiny partial.

Now let me tell you about my amazing Boyfriend... who reads over my shoulder and drives me crazy. Currently, he is trying to pretend that he's snuggling up to me, when in reality he is sticking his head under my arm in order to read what I'm typing. "No I'm not!" he just squeaked out, mid-laugh. I may have to kill him. "No, don't! Please!" Ok maybe I won't kill him. But only because today is our 9 month and if he has stood me this long, he's worth keeping around.

And now for the end of the month round-up goal-check-in:

1. Get back down to 135 pounds. Started the month at 150.6, now at 144. Woo!
2. Move out of my parent's place. Sigh.
3. Get a job I actually like. Not yet.
4. Finish a few WIPs. Working on it!
5. No more stash buying. I've been good!
6. Walking. 26.1 miles last month. 29 miles this month!

Still catching up on blogs. Slowly but surely! 

Happy stitching everyone!

good work on the stitching. I just bought several HAED patterns, during their 50% sale. Never done them before. Good job with your goals...I may have to steal this idea! :)

beautiful stitching. Good work on your goals. My waking hasn't been going great at all because I've been sick the past couple of weeks.
