Photos, finally!

Yay! I did it! I got a picture to upload, so this is the second piece I did for my mom at the beginning of last year that she had bought the kits for and I did for her. She loved both these pieces, the God Bless America one and this one.

Blogger has been acting so weird lately. The other night, Monday, I tired to post the previous post, but it kept saying 0% files uploaded whenever I would hit the publish post button. So, I didn't figure it had gone through, and yesterday when I logged on I didn't see the post and here it is now.

Well, I haven't posted for a few days, because I have been busy. I now have cable, as I wrote about in a previous post, and I have "Fit T.V" I LOVE IT!!! I have decided to work out three hours a day! Right now though I am trying to get into the groove, goodness my muscles are killing me! So,this morning I did one workout for an hour, and that is all I can hack. I'm afraid if I keep pushing myself that I will end up injuring myself, and that wouldn't be too good, at all. but I can already tell there's a difference in my energy level. yesterday I felt high as a kite! I have always loved working out, but I hate running, (I mean who wants to run in a circle, or around the block? some people don't mind it, but I can't stay motivated if it isn't something I enjoy doing.) So, I have tried to do aerobic workouts on my own, as I had taken aerobics in the past and remembered some of the moves and exercises, but I got bored without trying to follow someone, it is hard to have your own routine and stick to it. so, now I can go turn on Fit T.V and get any sort of work out during the day, there is one I really like that has dance moves as aerobic workout, and there's a step aerobic class, and everyday they change it up, one day they may work on weights and muscle training and then the other do a hard core aerobic work out. It is so nice! I am wondering if 3 hours a day is a bit much though? It probably is. 1 hour should suffice, but two would be better. I would be working out right now, except that I am so sore from working out so much the past two days. I did one hour already, so I guess I'm good to go.

Also there is the fact that I haven't been stitching much either. I worked on Patchwork Bears last night for a bit. But in reality I really have not been much in a stitching mood, even though while watching my afternoon shows(E.R. and Judging Amy) I have been trying to work on "Easter". So, lets see if blogger will be nice and allow me to post a picture of that...

I'm impressed! It did it! It is starting to get too long for the scanner, so you can see the little bit of gray at the very bottom is the start of the Easter Bunny. I counted it out and I am pretty sure it should all fit...JUST BARELY but I should get it all in. I have more than what is shown here, but just a little bit.

Oh! I still also need to write about my stash inhancement! As I told you all a few weeks ago,t hat my bonus check would be coming in, and I wanted to spend a good chunk on stash, well, last sunday DH took me to Micheals and I spent my good chunk!

You are hilarious, Lana! Three hours of working out! Please don't hurt yourself sweetie. I enjoy my cable tv too, but I think I need to find that fit tv channel and join you in a little exercise. :)

Your projects are wonderful. I have been having a lot of problems with Blogger in the last couple of months. I used to blogg in both icelandic and english, but then all of a sudden blogger wouldn't accept the icelandic characters and then it just always froze up on me :-/
Now I cheat, and blog through my photobucket albums! LOL! Weird, but it works for me!

Your easter banner looks great! And the project for your mom is so pretty. :D

3 hours a day of excercise seems a bit excessive. But if you enjoy it then keep it up! Just remember to give yourself a break. Sounds fun though! :D

lol! My dh tries to smile bravely when I buy somme stash, but there's not that usual sparkle in his eyes...
FiTV: oh my! How courageous (crazy?) you are! Take care!!!

Oh my 3 hours of exercise a day, I would be exhausted! Your piece for your mom is lovely and your easter project is coming along nicely, can't wait to see another update. Don't work out to hard!

Yikes, I didn't realise how long it's been since I've been commenting on my backlog of blogs! Just wanted to say your Mum's piece your stitched for her previously is lovely - and your latest stash haul sounds awesome!! :D Just thinking about Fit TV makes me sound tired ... but I probably need it more than most ;P OK, off to see what else you've been up to ... :D
