Hanging Out at Home

I would like to welcome all my new followers! 
Thanks for stopping by and
deciding to stick around. 
I'll be to 200 followers in a heart beat.
You do know what that means - right? 

I finished three smalls the other day. Can't show you because - well, because I can't! lol After I finished them I went back to Colorful Sky. I now have page 3 completed. Page 4 (and a little of 5) are well under way.

Sorry about the picture - it's another cold deary day in Ohio and the only place for a photo with light was at my chair.

I got several hours in on it this weekend. We had no other pressing engagements and it was snowy/windy out. Better to stay in and stitch than venture forth into the winter ick.

Found a way to get all those stars finished. Take a few with me in when I ride my stationary bike. It takes about 5 minutes or so to fold each star. And your mind is occupied while you ride to nowhere. I'll probably regret saying this but in the last 2 weeks I have lost 7.8 pounds. Not bunches but better than gaining 7.8 pounds!

There's really nothing else new and exciting to report from my end. I'm fast becoming boring. Not working is turning me into a homebody. And with DH not working, I'm not spending on my obsessions.

Maybe by next post I'll have something fun to tell you all about!

Congrats on the weight loss! Great job! The stars are really nice, but honestly, I would lose them before the month was up, let alone two years. Great idea on doing them on the bike!

Stay warm.

Congrats of loosing almost 8 pounds!! You want to loose the weigh slowly then really quickly. You want to teach yourself to eat and exercide properly so in the end you keep the weight off forever.

Staying at home in the winter, makes you feel as if the world is passing you by, but why go out when you don't need to. Great news for your weight loss, hope it rubs off to me 4lbs so far, but just started. Nice idea for your bike to be doing some thing, might copy that one.
