all done.... for now :-)

I'm as far as I can go with the Big Zipper until I receive the last kit. I have to say that I'm very happy with all of my color choices so far. Once I have the last kit in hand I can also go and purchase all the buttons I need. I was going to drive to my LNS over the past weekend but since I don't know if there are any in the last section I had better wait so I don't have to make the long drive twice.


Last night I also made more progress on House #3. I just have to finish filling in the dark blue and I'm finished. Hopefully by Friday. :-)

For the train rides for the next couple of days I picked up my IsaV Grand Marquior and I managed to finish the first block of the second release. I'm going to work down each row rather than across. I love how it's looking.

Thanks to everyone who been commenting lately. I've pick up some new regulars and I've added a bunch more blog addresses to the ones I visit on a regular basis. I might not always comment due to time restraints but I'm always stopping by! :-) And thanks for all the kind words regarding my weight loss. I feel great. :-) And I'm almost done!!! Yeah!!

It's kinda funny now that I weight less, I'm a lot faster when I do agility. Almost from the start my pugs were faster than me and I was always trying to catch up with them on the agility course. Now that I'm thinner, I'm faster and I can now beat Clancy. Poor guy doesn't know what's hit him. :-) He has been dropping bars lately because his timing is all messed up because he now has to chase after me. :-)

I love how your marquoir is looking. Very vintage with those colors (at least through my monitor). Great progress on both your other projects too!

Oh, I love all your WIPs! I don't know how you can always be so disciplined about what you're working on! As for poor Clancy -- lol! He'll tough it out, right? Congrats again on the weight loss! I need some help with that!

You're doing really well with all your stitching! Everything's looking great.

That must be a great feeling to actually feel the 'power' of your weight loss, not just in size, but how must faster you are. Congratulations!

Wow, you have some great stitching on the go there.

Congrats on your weight loss. I laughed when I read that you run faster than one of your pugs. :-)
