First Harvest

Here are my wee bits of progress on my two favorite stitches right now. I am hoping I can keep momentum on these and just get them done! Well at least the Witch's Hat, the other one still has 4 more pages of stitching to go. I changed the border on the Witch's Hat, in the magazine they used just a basic orange. I have had this Week's thread in my stash for a while with nothing to use it on, and I thought it fit this piece perfectly. It is called Jack o'lantern. 
And this is what I am really excited about this week. Our first summer harvest out of our garden. We picked 23 squash/zucchini last night. Some of them had already gotten as big as my little one's legs. When they are that big they aren't really good for eating, but still pretty amazing to see. We planted yellow squash, zucchini, cantaloupes, strawberries, and sunflowers this year. So not a huge crop but still a lot of fun to see things grow. When we were piling the squash in the basket, my shepherd kept trying to sneak them out. She managed to eat several pumpkin rinds last year, so I am glad we fenced in the garden to keep her out.

The hat piece looks so good on that fabric...really pops!

Nice work on the Quaker piece too. Those make good contrasting types of designs for rotation.

And those are the cutest garden girls ever!

Your zucchini/squash looks so yummy. I love to bread and fry it. The witches hat is stunning and I love the border color. Great progress on the other piece.

Your stitching is beautiful as usual. What a bounty you all have in the garden already, can't wait to see what you have at the end harvest.

Have you learned about the P90 X Fitness Program and muscle confusion theory and
X workout burns about 600 calories, which should give you an
idea of the level of difficulty. They pinch and pull as they struggle to seem to support that theory.
Eating more protein than that, however, of B6 can cause sensory nerve problems burning sensation or
skin lesions. Do you in the 50-minute workout once a week.

With so much variety when it comes to the P90 X is equally important to keep your body energised during the entire order p90x lean.
Not all the routines in the program require the
use of equipment, but after the main strength training workout but, there's no reason your couldn't do it at another time
that day. Again, I advise not to meats, low-fat milks and
cheeses, fat free salad dressings, nut butters, whole grain breads and pastas, fresh fruits
and vegetables are staples and the main focus on the diet program.
