Flora unfulfilled

Yep.  Did it again.  My apologies to Miss Flora Dellow.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I picked up half completed Flora Dellow and just couldn't bring myself to continue, so, she's short.  I didn't want to do the dividing bands in the light color, or any color. 
So I just added a few more stitches to even it a bit, a few straight bands, and I think she will make a nice small.  Also did a star on the same fabric and may hang it from Flora.
 
I've been reading posts from several of you about your weight loss.  Good for you!  Then I see Miss Patty posting about her exercise progress.  She mentioned holding a plank for over 15 seconds which piqued my interest.  Heck, I can hold a wood board for that long.  Was it 10 foot long?  A 4x4?  Nope.  Further investigating showed a video of what looked to be a very easy position, beginners on their knees.  It didn't take long at all for me to crash to the floor, roll over, pull off the bed quilt trying to raise myself, followed by two well deserved M&M's.
 
 
Hope everyone had a very nice Memorial Day.

Love your last paragraph.
Want to do your star. Am doing several Americana charts for a friend's birthday. Don't know what got into me to start stitching......am enjoying it.
Had a quiet Memorial Day weekend..........complete with some crab cakes and the first potato salad of the season.
I hope your weekend was nice.

Flora looks good just the way it is!

I've started doing some weight lifting...very light...ugh, another reminder of how out of shape I am...

I really like your smalls...especially how you chose to do the star in the same color palette. As for planks, I'd love a nice piece of cake on a cedar plank. Yep. That would do me just fine (although it probably would do nothing for my waistline).

Stitching is wonderful as usual. I really laughed at your plank talk - thanks for that!!

I think your shortened version of Flora is spot on; I really like her that way. I can only do a modified plank due to wrist issues and I can't say they are my favorite either.

Another fun finish. For someone in a slump, you get a lot of stitching done!!!
Hugs :)

Cudo's to Miss Patty and to you too Marly for giving it a try! but hold a plank pose? Waaay out of my comfort zone. I love your stitching as always :) You give me inspiration and smiles

OMG....you are too funny! I can't believe how fast you get things stitched!

Love how your star turned out! Flora looks really nice too.

I would be right with you on the exercise thing, but I might have rewarded myself with a few more M&Ms!

Have NO idea what the plank thing even is!! I like your shortened version of the sampler... once you buy the pattern, it is yours to stitch how you want! You always do fine! Hugs!
