I have never gotten into all “mushy” romantic stuff but I think I might be changing. This morning I awoke around 5am and went down and turned on the television to find the Royal Wedding of William and Kate on. Yes I watched the entire thing, I was able to see the parts I missed because a couple channels replayed it. I watched television for 7 hours, I just realized that. That is sickening. I was also stitching. I decided I would get into the spirit and had seen a little Royal Wedding pattern in the Bustle and Sew newsletter that I get (they also have a blog here. So I traced it out and stitched along with the wedding.
I did not get much stitched because I wanted to see what was going on. They are such a beautiful couple.
Last night I started piecing together some of the “A Gardener’s Journal” quilt. I became quite overwhelmed, so I took a step back and tonight I will try again but only work on one block at a time. There are so many little pieces. And I have to say it is a lovely pattern but she does not provide all the cutting instructions so there is still some that I need to cut. I am happy that I at least have all the blocks stitched.
So after being lazy all morning I decided I really needed to start working out. I put in the Zumba game I bought for the Wii and did the 20 minute program. Oh my goodness, it beat me up. It was a little embarrassing since my girls were watching me the entire time but that kind of gave me more drive to do it. Hopefully I will keep it up. I tend to do pretty good for a week or two and then stop.
Off I go. I hope everyone has a great weekend and finds a little stitching time!
