Time to Start
This is the first time I have had a blog. This blog is going to be about a number of things. My struggle with my weight as I try to lose about 80kg or more. It will also be about my rekindled interest in Cross Stitching. There will be other things along the way as we go through this adventure together. I should, I guess, introduce myself.
I am an Australian woman, unmarried and very overweight. I really need to lose the weight because I am not as healthy as I would like to be. I guess I am a bit depressed. I mean, at my weight (I weighed 142.7kg on Wednesday) who wouldn’t be? I am hoping that as I lose the weight, my health will improve and that my depression will lift.
I have recently rekindled my interest in counted cross stitch. I am currently waiting the arrival of my new stitching frame and the stand on which to work. I am planning to do some of the Disney Dreams series of designs. They are quite large, compared to other projects I had worked on previously. Hence the need for a new, larger, frame. I decided to go with the Millenium Frame from Needle Needs in the UK. I would encourage any cross stitchers out there to go to their site and check it out. They are the only company that makes these frames and they look wonderful. As things go on, I will post photos of the frame and my cross stitch progress.
I know there will be questions…. Why call this blog Advenures of an Aussie Ragdoll? I have a Ragdoll cat. She is now 16 years old and has been with me since she was 14weeks of age. I like to honour her in different ways. My business (I used to be a professional Interpreter for the Deaf here in Australia), my twitter name, and I’m sure if I thought about it, there are other things in which she has been honoured. She is my furbaby as I am unmarried. As a very traditional, old fashioned woman I have no children. I believe that the correct sequence of events should be marriage and then children. No marriage has meant no children. I might talk about that later. It’s still a difficult topic for me and doesn’t help with my depression, I’m sure.
Well, I think that’s enough for the first post. I will return and talk some more. As I learn how to put in photos and make the whole thing more interesting to look at, I hope you will want to go on this adventure with me.
