I finished stitching Home Sweet Home.
The house, that is, there are still some smalls to stitch but this is the main etui.
I need two bee hive charms to finish this off. I looked up a place that sells them. Then I looked up to see if I could find them on Ebay. Yes, I found a place. So I bought them. They won't be here until Monday but I'm sure I can sew them on even if the house is already put together.
Now comes the task of putting it together. I bought the pre-cut boards from Australia so it would be easy to put together. But I don't think it is going to fit. I am going to have to cut a few new boards for the outside panels. But I have to sit down and mess with it a bit. I think it is about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch too short on each side.
The Wren didn't come yesterday. Maybe today. I had to walk at the Y because it was too cold outside, 17 degrees. Paula asked me about walking. I started going to the Y several years ago when I stopped working. I took exercise classes every day and Pilate's on Saturday. My Pilate's teacher talked about FitBit but I had never heard of it before. So I looked it up and bought one. It took me at least a month to be able to get to 10,000 steps in a day. Without walking, I only get about 2400 steps in. I ended up not going to exercise class any more and just walking instead. Fortunately, I live very near a park so I have a place to walk. I worked out a path that gets me to 10,000 steps. At the same time DH began grilling fish about 4 days a week. So I changed eating habits as well as exercise habits. I lost a little over 30 pounds. I still have more to lose but I am in much better shape now. I fight my sweet tooth every day, but don't we all.
