I have slowly but surely been making progress on good old Mickey Mouse. I don't know why this ornament has been taking so long, but it has. I suspect the fractional stitches on Aida might be what's slowing me down.
I entered God is Love in the fair today. My grandma used to enter her pieces but I never have and I figured this was the year to try.
I also started the South Beach Diet today. Our family doctor recommended it for my husband and I have decided to join him on it. The first two weeks will probably be rough and I won't be able to have a cookie for quite some time, however, I think I might fare better with it since you can eat when you're hungry as long as you eat from the approved food list. I had issues with counting calories because I found I was extremely hungry and I couldn't stand the feeling.
