So, how's it going?

Well, July is sliding away and I've been a bit out of touch with the blog recently.

The gym is going well - I'm managing to go 5 times a week and last week did my first spin class - jelly legs afterwards but I survived!  I'm even doing another one this week.

I'm not doing so well on the dress making - fabric bought, some cut out but so far no actual sewing - must get the machine out and get going.

I've found a pattern for a cotton knitted top that I like so I may get the wool for that - another project to start which pushes all the others further back!  I love staring new projects but am less keen on finishing existing ones!  I've still to buy the frame for the cross stitch I finally finished so I can send it to my Twitter #Postcircle friend!

Loving the sunny weather; less keen on the humid nights!

Enter the gym bunny!

I've attended my first gym session & got a new programme sorted out.  It's manageable but makes me sweat - which I suppose is the point although not very attractive!

I'm no nearer deciding what to do about the sewing - I'm still worried about the fit of the trousers so moving on to the skirt seems more sensible but it smacks of my old habit of leaving a project half finished!  I've also found a neat 'pattern' for an idiot proof top which I'll tackle when I have made the skirt. It's basically sewing a square - how hard can that be.  If you're lucky I'll pop a picture up when I've done the skirt so you can all have a laugh!

Tomorrow I'll be spending several hours at the gym so will be able to get some writing/work done.  Depending on which computer I take this will either be resource writing or some more work on the half finished novel.  Heaven knows what state that's in after being so shamelessly ignored since November!
