I thought I was late in posting, but looking at the date for the topic, I'm right on time.
I've not done a lot of stitching this past week, but looking at all of my starts, I guess I've done more stitching that I thought since the last full moon.
We had a wonderful "coming home" celebration for our daughter, which meant got to I spend a week with family and friends getting ready for the celebration and then celebrating. I learned a lot over the past couple of weeks, like crying really wears me out - I can see why baby's sleep after a good cry. I finally had my first good night sleep last night, but I think most of it was just sheer exhaustion.
So here is this month's question:
February 4 – Topic: How do you overcome that feeling that you’re in a rut with a particular project?
I'm not very good at over coming that feeling. Mostly I just put it aside until I feel like stitching on it again. Sometimes that's a few days, other times it can be years. If I was a one at a time person I most likely would have stopped stitching all together by now. Not good at rotation, I'm more of a person who stitches what calls my name at the time.
So what have I stitched since the last full moon? I didn't make starting 31 projects in January, so maybe I'm not totally crazy, but I did start on about 16 in total. When I was home I pulled all of my Shepherd Bush kits and several Just Nan kits and brought them back with me. Of course my bag was searched, wonder if the TSA person is a stitcher who wanted to see what I was going to do LOL Anyway, I might have to do a few more starts in February or March - maybe March Madness? - I'm sure I could manage a new start each day for March Madness.
Until next full moon - keep your needle threaded and your projects close by. Also hug your kids, your parents, your nieces/nephews, friend or honey. I know I will never pass up an opportunity to do the same.
