  1. Demelza looks lovely and well done on the weight loss. Have a good weekend.

  2. Congrats on your weight loss!! that is wonderful. my husband needs to lose about 15 lbs. did you follow a certain diet? we need ideas here!

    I do not know what a demelza is but it looks pretty. and is this a new disney movie? im out of the loop as my daughters are 17 and 23 and I rarely go out to movies now that we have netflix.

    i hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend doing the things you love.

    1. Thank you! I've been using the Weight Watchers program and am loving it!

      Demelza is a character on the show Poldark. The afghan creator used her as inspiration for the pattern.

      Moana is the newest Disney movie. I'll be posting a review next week :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What a lovely week it seems you've had. Congrats on the weight loss. I know how difficult it can be. Your crochet looks great - maybe one day I can learn! I'm still getting the hang of knitting.

    Can't wait for the Moana review. Is it Disney? If so, maybe there will be a great song. I still hum Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas sometimes.
