Recovering & Juggling WIPs

Welcome to another update on my cross stitching. What a month March has been so far! It feels like I haven’t had a chance to catch my breath since the month started. Thanks to surgical recovery time, follow up doctor appointments and Coronavirus social-distancing, I’ve been juggling three different cross stitching projects this month.

March 4th, I had a same day surgical procedure done. Some may say minor surgery, but I believe the degree between minor and major can be subjective. Whether it was minor or not, there is still anxiety, pain, discomfort, and recovery involved. Leaving out the private details, I am thankful to God for seeing me through it and giving me a peaceful state of mind that morning.

Thankfully, my parents were able to come down for the day of the procedure, plus a few more. Having them here, especially my mom, was a major support. No matter how old you are, when hurt or sick there’s nothing like having your mom take care of you.

And yes, I am that stitcher who was stitching a project while waiting to get taken back for surgery. While the surgery went well, there has been quite a bit of fatigue and discomfort for the past two weeks, so my stitching has been interspersed with lots of napping. For the most part, I’ve been working on Purple Chick from the Mill Hill 2017 Jim Shore collection.

The small Mill Hill kits are my go to projects for car rides, travel, and for when I need a small project/finish. This Purple Chick is going to be a cutie and it’s been great to just pick it up do a couple stitches, put it down, take a nap, eat, sleep, repeat.

Then this past Monday, I got to work on Animal Almanac; this year’s SAL from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. Aurora The Penguin is close to done. Stitching is still a little slow, but I think these blocks will stitch up fairly quickly once I get back into the swing of things. Hopefully I can get caught up before April 1.

I’m addition, I’ve return to my bedtime stitching routine and have been working on the beading for Moonstruck. Another gorgeous Mill Hill kit, but of the larger variety, 6”x6”. While I also use the larger Mill Hills as travel projects, this one has been my bedside piece for a while now and I can’t wait to see the final result.

Well that’s all for this update. Thanks for checking in, stay healthy and Happy Stitching!
