I have no stitching at all to show. Surprisingly im not that bothered by it.
I spent most of last year trying to finish page after page, I kind of lost the love for stitching.
I thought it was just where I had worked on the same project for so long and told myself that when I started something new I would plough straight in and everything would be perfect.
I found I was also comparing myself to other stitchers, how fast i finished a page, how neat my stitches was....
It was just another stress -when my life had became very stressful- that I had to manage and eventaully became not enjoyable. To be honest everything got ontop of me a little.
A break was very much needed. I told myself i would finish the page by Xmas then have a little break and would start a new project in the New Year.
I was hoping to get the threads for one of my Birthday charts but the car went BANG! so I am still waiting for them.
I decieded that a bit of a extended break was needed.
It has been almost a month since i put needle to fabric. I havent looked at any of the stitching on any Facebook groups im on unless it popped up on my newsfeed. I havent read any blogs. I havent even looked at my stitching!
Damn i have been bored!
I think its time for the break to be over. I have found that i dont know what to do with my hands at night while watching TV.
I have started to look forward to sitting down and feeling the thread between my fingers and seeing the progress i have made.
TONIGHT I WILL STITCH !!!
Slowly, and possibly not every night. I dont know when my next update will be. Im going to concentrate on enjoying every stitch, like it should be, not on how much i have accomplished.
