Hi, how's your week going?

What is happening with our weather, freezing cold tonight, feels like there will be snow on the hills again...

Went for a jog with DD1 last night - hadn't done any exercise for 8 days (feel like I'm confessing many sins!)... anyway we both did really well only walking the up-hills - tonight went out in the car to measure the distance it was 4.2kms - wow that was a good feeling. Now if there are any runners out there reading - would love to hear your hints on how to get the breathing into a rhythm - it took me right up until 3/4's of the way home to feel like I was finally running without labouring for breath...

On the stitching front, have been a little quiet, am working on a baby quilt panel sampler for Yvonne's shop - started with a hiss and a roar on Saturday night, plan on finishing the quilting tomorrow night, so then can add the binding and then handstitch the binding down on Friday night at Sawmiller's UFO. Plus the other WIPS are still waiting for the quilting fairy to wave her magic wand...

Perhaps things may be looking up on the job hunt as well, two agencies who have actually made contact in the last couple of days and wanted to find out more about me and my cv, they have forwarded position descriptions for jobs I may be interested in... fingers and toes are crossed my luck is turning and that the 'dream' job is just around the corner for me :)
Enjoy your week and happy stitching.
Hugs

hmmm yes I have been a bit slack in the exercise dept also, haven't been to any of my usual gym classes, or for too many walks other then the nice long ones in Twizel last week. My whole routine is so disrupted (my own doing I have decided) whit Tim away in Twizel during the week. It is amazing how one change can be the catalyst for so many other changes!! But you tick to it, and you might even make me feel guilty enough to get off my butt!!!
