Tribal Orca...FINISHED!

Good evening!

Yep, you read the title right, I have been working away on Tribal Orca over the weekend and this afternoon I placed the final stitch :)

I really enjoyed working on this project and I think the final result is great even if I do say so myself!


Tribal Orca by White Willow Stitching
Stitched on Deep Water by Colour Cascade Fabrics 14ct Opal Aida

So, my first finish of the year - hooray!

What will I work on next, well I'm not sure to be honest! I guess the next time I sit down to stitch I will peek in to my craft bag which holds all ten (or nine now!) projects for the year and whatever takes my fancy will be the one :)

In other news I have been a little behind in my blog reading and commenting as I started back on Slimming World again last weekend, so this past week I really focusing on that and getting myself organised. But it all paid off and I had my first weigh in yesterday and...


Yep, a whole 7 pounds in one week :D I was so happy and shocked!

I know it is because it is the first week but still I am off to a great start with my weight loss journey this year and I really want to add to what I managed to shift last year. I also ran three times this week making my total distance for February so far 11.5 km which I am pleased with.

Well, the weekend is almost over once again but thats ok, I have a short working week this coming week as I booked Thursday and Friday as holiday. No big plans but thought it was about time I took some time off :)

Until next time
