a modest start...

I'm not doing too well with my stitching in the new year, unfortunately, as I've been caught up in other things. I've been writing like a machine lately, though, usually to the tune of 1500 words per day on the days I write, so I can't really complain! Writing is my original hobby from waaaaay back so I'm really pleased to be super interested in it again. :)

Anyway! You're not here for that, you want to see stitchy pics!

Yeah, I know, it's a pathetic start, but at least I've started! It's been a bit rough since the border has SIX different colors in it so far and two are super slippery rayons. As you can see, I'm parking everything so I don't have to deal with threading needles all the time but it's still kind of hard since it's all single stitches of each color with big gaps between them. It's a good thing I don't care what the back of my work looks like, ahaha.

I may bounce back to another project for a bit, this one is a bit overwhelming at the moment. It's slow going and I'm too distracted by other things to put in enough time to see good progress...

Sigh. :)


  1. Any progress is good progress and it looks wonderful so far. Perhaps a short break from it will reignite the mojo? :)

  2. A start is a start, no matter how much you stitch on your project.And I think it's a nice start here.

  3. Looks like a fine start from where I'm sitting.

  4. Looks great so far! And congrats for getting back into writing. It's crafty too, so I like hearing that you've found your mojo to get back into it. :-)
