This week has also been the first time I can say that stitching helped me to keep it together. The rain and gloom just brought me down to ugly thoughts and feelings. I didn't like anybody. All I wanted to do was crawl into bed under the covers and hide for awhile. But I stitched my way through it and I made it until the sun came back out. I feel so much better. Good thing I do no want to live in Seattle.
For the new year the main things I wanted to achieve is a regular gym schedule and a stitching rotation. Neither of which has happened yet. No one should really be surprised by that. I'm not. I have plans for the gym, but the stitching rotation is kinda overwhelming. I am not even sure why. I have 3 projects kitted and ready to stitch and my big one for the year still needs floss and a scroll frame I am hoping to get for my birthday. Yet, I have been unable to get out of the mindset of one project at a time. I am hoping this weekend I can come up with a schedule and get it into my calendar with a morning reminder of what I am to be stitching on today.
I picked up the Quilter by Precious Moments after finishing Geraniums. This is the last project I worked on before my surgery in March. It was frustrating me so much that I dreaded starting it again. But I did it. And have made really decent progress since then. Although I have found an error that would require frogging a lot or starting over. I am thinking I can fix it and no one will be the wiser, so keep your fingers crossed.

And this is what I accomplished yesterday
I did end up frogging a lot previously but yesterday went without a hitch. Not a lot of mistakes, knotted floss, half stitches, or any other nonsense. But it is white on white stitching. I am hoping between the other colors and back stitching that you will be able to see them upon completion.
Oh, I forgot. I got an armchair organizer and I am making it my own. giggle
And my bag finally came in the mail. Finally! Now what to fill it with?
Have a great weekend and keep on stitching!
