Another Feb Goal completed and a sweet addition to my stitching spot.

I just now put in the last stitchs on the background sky for the section I was working on for Peaceable Kingdom. I also have all the backstitching done that I hoped to in February, so I am really proud of myself for that accomplishment. I am not sure how to set the goal on PK for March because it isn't like I could get another whole section done. So, I will think about it and come up with something by this weekend when I need to post my goals. By the way, that is when I will post an updated picture of PK since I am in Louisville for the week and my camera and ability to put on my computer are both at home.

Now, for my sweet little additional to my stitching spot. Last Saturday DH Bill and I were up here in Louisville to celebrate one of his BIL's birthday. All the siblings and spouses went out to lunch and then afterwards we all went to a Peddlar's Mall to look around. Well, we saw this little cutie, and just could not pass it up. So now I have a little sewing stand sitting next to my recliner. As you can see in the second picture, it holds both my TUSAL glass and my Scissors Bed along with a notebook and what you can't see is a pouch with all the little tools I carry around in case I need them like more needles, needle threaders, safety pins, and My Favorite Dololly! I think I am going to enjoy having it there because once I am done for the stitching time, I can just close it up and it becomes invisible!!

I wanted to thank you all for your comments on my new Wii Fit Plus, I do hope I can continue to work out on it regularly. I am convinced that it really makes a difference in my stamina and really in my ability to breath. So, here's hoping I keep it up!! I also wanted to thank you for all of your visits and comments, they really mean a lot to me. So, until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!!
