Chasing The Blues Away

Welcome to another update on my current cross stitching. This week I have been stitching on Midnight Owl, Animal Almanac, & a Mystery SAL.

Last week I was a little off kilter and hadn’t really touched my stitching. On Sunday I had the idea to try a new start; figuring that would be the best cure for my stitching blues. It was perfect timing since I had just received part one of the Mystery SAL from Lindy Stitches on Friday. It took very little time to get it all kitted up and I had part one stitched by the end of Monday morning. I am very excited to watch this come together.

This week I also decided to change my routine up a little bit. Typically in the evenings, I would work on a project from my smalls bin, as a way to wind down and get ready for bed. Unfortunately, that is also the prime time for reading and I realized that I wasn’t reading as much as I was stitching. In the mornings, especially if I’m up early, I like to spend time studying the Word. Most of the time I watch a verse by verse teaching sermon. So what I started doing this week is dedicating those early mornings to devotional time and stitching a small. Spent my early morning time this week in the Book of Matthew and stitching Midnight Owl.

Once I got going with stitching this week I naturally went back to my Animal Almanac SAL, and managed to get blocks three and four, March & April, stitched. The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery patterns are currently my absolute favorite patterns to stitch, so I’m not sure why I’m having a hard time staying up-to-date with this SAL. Regardless, I am still going to put it away for a little bit so I can work on my Christmas in July plans, which also include a Frosted Pumpkin pattern.

I hope this finds you well and enjoying life.
Thanks for checking in & happy stitching!
