Linen and Threads Mystery SAL I fretted about what color and what fabric to use - I looked at their facebook page to see what others had done. I copied someone else's choice - 32 count Belfast linen - antique ivory and DMC 53 and black for the birds. I thought I could bump a rotation project and catch up to everyone but no - everybody posting on instagram goes so quick and I am a fast stitcher but I didn't even get January done - dang it. so now I have two WIPS - Teresa Wentzler the Story teller and this monster.
|St Johns Bridge|
|Cherry blossoms Portland|

Scott and I have been doing Whole 30 and are feeling good and losing weight. We took the weekend off and ate what we wanted and we both feel terrible. When we started this change of lifestyle I never thought it would point to Scott having gluten intolerance issues and me having problems with dairy. Tomorrow we go back on Whole 30 - My triglycerides have dropped from over 350 to 220 - pretty impressive. The change in my bloodwork means I will always be on Whole30 with some breaks for special occasions. I did just get bloodwork done and I am waiting to talk to a hematologist because of some bad numbers in platelet production- hopefully nothing bad but the wheels of medicine do move painfully slow.
Okay I am done - lots to say when you wait three months to post!! Just under the blah lately - with school starting I will feel better - like I am doing something! Losing weight has helped my self esteem. I am on the way up!! To quote Stuart Smalley, "I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!" Haa!
I did add a sale tab to my blog - just some patterns I am done with. If you see something you like - let me know.
I hope you are having a nice Spring - thanks for stopping by!!
