I'm at a loss today, so you get potpourri...

First--my cross stitch project is done!!! The stitching part, anyway. Now I just need to trim the aida cloth and attach the image to the frame. Woo hoo!

After that, I'll have to dig up another project or kit. I've really been enjoying the endeavor. Actually, I'm thinking of designing my own next project--a birth sampler for DD. I realize she's twenty-three years old, but she keeps making comments about the fact that Sonshine has one but she doesn't. Mostly she's joking, but Sonshine, as youngest child, has had way more things and spoiling than the girls did, so I think she sometimes feels jealous or deprived or something. So that'll be one of her gifts for Christmas.

Second--that 137 lb. mark is just days away. As I said Wednesday, I've been bobbing over and under the 140 lb. mark, but yesterday morning I was 138.4 and last night I was at 141.4. Still some calories to count and exercise to do, but I'm moving steadily closer.

Third--I love love love the new STAR TREK movie, Into the Darkness.

The digital copy was released several days ago and I've watched it four times already. I watch while I cross stitch and at lunch and while I'm exercising...I don't even have to really watch it, I can just listen when I'm cross stitching. I cry or get teary eyed at the end every time. And I love it more with each viewing. I've got a ways to go to catch up to the number of times I've watched the first film, which is easily over 150 times at this point. :)

Fourth--after too many years to count, I finally have a flag on my house! Sonshine put it up a week or so ago, and I'm super excited.

So what's  new with you???

And don't forget to have a spectacular weekend.

Beautiful cross stitch. I'm thinking of painting one of the upstairs rooms. That's about as crafty as I get.

I need to buy the new ST! Maybe next weekend, after payday!

Congrats on the weight loss. That is fantastic!
