Birthday Surprise

This is the piece I did for DD. Her birthday is on May 22nd. I did this on 14 count Metallic Gold Aida. It doesn't show up good in this scan. It has gold threads running through it. It's very sparkly. I started this last night and finished it this morning. It's a freebie at Rainbow Gallery. I really like it! Now I have to figure out how I want to finish finish it. I'm thinking maybe a flat fold.

The picture above is the next charity square I am doing. It's from an old magazine -Leisure Arts, the Magazine, April 1993. It was designed by Sandi Gore Evans. I'm doing it on white 14 count Aida, as is required by Love Quilts. It's for Briannah's quilt.

And this is my progress so far. It's got 33 colors of thread in it! I started it this afternoon. I'm really enjoying this. I have signed up to do it for 2 other children, also. So I'm glad I'm enjoying it!
I didn't get a sub job for tomorrow. I really need to work, but I guess it's getting so close to the end of school that teachers are just not staying out. I do have a job on Friday already. It's at a school I really like to go to.
DD has lost 5 lbs. so far on our diet. I'm not really counting how many pounds I'm losing right now. It's hard to explain, but I'm trying not to think of this as a diet really, but as the way I eat now and will probably eat for the rest of my life. I have a good bit of weight to lose. When I go back to the doctor, I'm hoping to be very pleasantly surprised!
DD went to Tech today to apply for admission in the fall. I'm real excited and hopeful that she will go and get started on her college education. After she has taken several classes, she plans to transfer to a large college. She's thinking about Clemson University or Coastal Carolina University. She is a very smart girl. We're still having battles over money. She thinks I'm made of it or either that we have a tree in our yard where I go to get it! lol She is just going to have to get a job until she starts school in the fall!
Well, have to go and work on the angel some more before bedtime. Have a happy day and may God bless you!

The birthday one is very good. I can't wait until you finish the others.
Good luck on the diet thing. It is hard to do, but worth it in the end.
