 I worked on Butterfly Fairy this past week and finished corner #3.  Only one corner to go and a little back stitching and it will be done.  I probably could have gotten more finished but I kept falling asleep.
And here is the latest jigsaw puzzle I have finished.  This one took awhile as the colors were similar and there were only 4-5 different shapes.  Had to back up and remove pieces that were in spots they did not belong.   I have 3 more puzzles waiting to be put together.

This week I am stitching on In the Garden.  I really like this piece and spent alot of time yesterday working on it.  It was 93 out and I chose to stay inside and stitch instead of walking.

Today I am headed to Castleton Mall with my sister.  It is my birthday and we are looking to buy hiking backpacks for our Grand Canyon trip next year.  The weather is going to be excellent - in the 70's today and tomorrow (which I also have off).

I have been stitching away.  Looks like I have alot of green and gold orts this time around.

I worked on Autumn Angel by Joan Elliott this past week.  Getting closer to a finish. 

The weather here has been hot and dry.  No rain in weeks.  My grass is brown and crunchy.  We got a few dribbles of rain today but not enough to help.  Took my father out to Dairy Queen for Fathers Day.  His new girlfriend came along too as he forgot he had a date with her.

It was time to work on Little Fairies at Play again.  I started on the 2nd page.  I put about 300 more stitches in for a total done of 8,140.

The weather here has been beautiful.  But we have had no rain and the grass is brown.  I have not mowed my yard in about 3 weeks.  Only the weeds need mowing which I will take care of later this week when hopefully it will be cooler.

I am still walking 3 miles a day during the week with more miles logged on the weekends.  Once a week I do work out on the treadmill in the exercise facility at work.  So far I have lost 26lbs and I am down 2 sizes.  Last weekend I had to buy a new pair of jeans and slacks to wear to work.  My clothes are falling off of me.  I have never had this problem before (but it is a nice problem to have).  With the weather being so hot, I walk very slowly.  I think my exercising is cutting into my stitching time.

WIPocalypse June

 I worked on Joan Elliott's Autumn Angel.  Will be finished before year's end.
 I worked on Butterfly Fairy Day - 2 corners to go and I will be done.
 I worked on In the Garden by Barbara Baatz.  Love the colors in this one.
And I finished Bee Busy from Cross Country Stitching on 6/3/12.  I did not get to Little Fairies at play since the last WIPocalypse but it is up next in my rotation!  I am going to start some Christmas Ornaments when my open slot in my rotation comes up.
