Latest finish

Here's a photo of the front of my latest exchange piece.  I'll keep the back a secret until my partner receives it since her initials are on the back.  The design is from the Needle's Content's Primitive Floss Tag series from last year.  I do like this series very much and have stitched one for myself and a couple for exchanges.
I used a 28ct fabric and overdyed threads.  I'm sure the threads were GAST's, but tell you the truth, it's been a while since I stitched it and I don't remember for sure.

Never in a million years would I have believed I'd be doing a dance class, but I am.  Last night was the first class of Zumba at the local Y.  It is a great cardio workout.  All sizes, shape and ages were present.  I do think my friend and I were the oldest ones there, but that's ok.  We kept up with the youngsters just fine.  My back is a little sore and my shoulders a bit stiff and that's the only negative I feel this morn. It burns calories, which I need.  BTW, my WW'ers weight in last week had me at 42.2 pounds gone.  I'll have a gain this week because my loss last week wasn't all from being on program.  I had to fast for a couple of medical tests...so I'm ok with the gain. 

Time for a bite to eat and then a little stitching before I start my day.  Hope you have a great one too.

Congratulations on your weight loss Becky - keep it up! I've been doing WW since March too and have lost about 33 pounds. Have had trouble sticking to it this summer - need to get back on track!

I discovered Zumba a couple months ago and it IS a workout. My hips haven't swung that much in years! LOL. Lovely little piece you've stitched up; I'm sure its new owner will love it.
