Beck's Oriental Landscape


Yippee! I'm back stitching again on HAED - this time it's Oriental Landscape and it's really going well. I'm happy with purple of any shade and there have only been 4 colour changes this time. It doesn't look like many actual stitches but it's a huge achievement for me. I'm looking forward to having more progress pics in the weeks ahead...it will keep me from being stressed - my son and his long-time girlfriend just got engaged and this will be a BIG wedding - makes me glad I'm mother of the groom this time! I'm also working away on the weight loss and that's steady progress...I'm getting stronger muscles all the time and that's worth it overall too.

Hope everyone has as much fun this week as I'm having - I am one of the most fortunate women around! Life is great and friends like you all here - it's wonderful.

Hugs, Beck
