Well, hello everyone, it’s been a long time, hasn’t it? A lot has happened in the world since I last wrote on here and actually that is the reason I haven’t been on here to write. I have done lots of stitching (well kind of) but my mindset to go on here and write something has not been in the right place. When I write to you guys I do it when I am feeling the best and just want to share my stitching and sometimes stuff that is going on in my life.
I am still working as I work in a care home so my life has not changed much with the pandemic going on. There is no sickness or COVID-19 at my place so we are trying to keep residents safe by having the building closed to all visitors and having the residents social distance the best we can and just with that it has been a little stressful. Also not being able to see my family has been a little hard and since I really don’t want to get the virus and then carry it into the building I have not gone anywhere but home and work. So because of that, I want to try not to talk about the pandemic or my work.
So with the pandemic and with social media encouraging everyone to stay home and stay safe, the cross stitching community has embraced this saying by designers to create free charts for people to stitching during this hard time. I have seen many posted through Facebook and found one I liked and with just how I have been feeling I put my WIP’s to the side and decided to start a new project.
It’s called: Stitch Well
It’s by: JBW DesignsThis is my first time stitching on 40 count one over one. While stitching it I thought it looked pixilated and uneven, but now seeing it in the photo I think it looks really good. I guess when you have it only a few inches from your face everything can look pixilated.
If you are wanted to get some of these free designs or even just look at them there is a Facebook group that has them all listed under files: https://www.facebook.com/Keepsakes513/
The next piece that I have done some stitching on is my March Bird of the MonthI’m really almost done this piece, just have a little bit of the beak to do and then the backstitching. I think though with just everything going on I just realized I needed a break from stitching all the birds.
The last piece that I did some stitching on since I last posted was actually my Christmas Time. Well, that is all the stitching I have done in the last month. It doesn’t really look like a lot, but I’m hoping that since I am now officially on vacation for 10 days that it will be a nice break from work and I will be wanting to do more stitching. If things are going well I might even post again before my vacation ends.
