Well, FINALLY finished week 4. of this year's TAST with Sharon B. I started off with these sketches
Then I ended up with this
The 'leaves/trees' were originally rectangles then squares, then after I began embroidering did not like them so change to the leaf shape. I have used a lot of Brazilian Rayon threads, with some variegated single stranded in the bright colours.
I had originally intended to do some beading but then thought that would be overkill in the end.
I am so glad this page is finished now I can tidy my table and sewing room before guests arrive on Tuesday. I have a unit inspection on Friday so wont be able to make any messes between times and ruin the neat and tidy personna I have created for the real estate people.
On the health front just want to let all my concerned and caring friends know that I am ok. The blood test the GP had back on Friday were good and the reading she took when showing me how to use the glucose monitor was good as well and she is very happy with me.
AND I now weigh just under 75 kgs...which I am pleased about...all those salads are having an effect....and of course no ice cream, no creamy biscuits and cakes, and no lollies has helped a lot too. ...very sad face....I do miss my ice cream..which I think had become an emotional crutch. It is so good to be getting slim again I will appreciate it while I can in case the weight goes back on again.
Excuse the poor photos I have been 'fiddling' with my camera so will now have to get the book out and see if I can put things right.
