Welcome to another update on my current cross stitching. Since last Friday, I have been stitching on Mystery SAL, No Probllama, & The Nutcracker Parade. I also took some time on Sunday to make some decorative floss wax.
Usually on the weekends, I work on my smaller projects because they are easier to pick up/put down during weekend activities, and easier to take in the car if the hubby & I go out. This past weekend, I spent my stitching time on Part 2 of the Mystery SAL by Lindy Stitches. The majority of the stitching I did while having some quality FaceTime with my mom on the porch!
Like I said, on Sunday I took some time to make some more decorative floss wax. Living in the country, there is no end to local beekeepers and they are always present at the Farmer’s Markets or local fairs. When I see them, I always grab a couple bars of beeswax. From there I just melt it in a double broiler and pour into a silicone mold. Personally, I love using wax to condition my floss when I am stitching, and of course I could just cut a piece off the block of beeswax and use it like that, but where is the fun in that!
Over the weekend we made a stop at Hobby Lobby, where hubby pointed out this adorable Dimensions kit. Now I don’t typically buy kits from them, as I feel they are very over priced, but I could not resist this cute Llama. He just makes me so happy I couldn’t wait to get started.
Even though I did have plans for Christmas in July projects, I just had to get a start on No Probllama, so I got started on that during Monday morning‘s devotional and stitching time. Additionally, I had a medical appointment on Monday and on the car ride to the doctor’s office, I managed to get a little bit more stitching done.
Monday’s appointment was for a minor procedure done, minor but still painful. They gave me some medicine for the pain which made me very sleepy as well as the procedure itself left me sore. This resulted in very late mornings and little stitching time the rest of the week. Tuesday, I spent the afternoon resting, binge watching Hidden on Acorn TV, & celebrating Christmas in July by stitching on The Nutcracker Parade. It was a slow process as I kept dozing off, but by Thursday evening I think I made good progress.
That’s it for my weekly wrap up, I hope this finds you healthy, blessed & enjoying life.
Thanks for checking in & happy stitching!
