Trying To Get Back

February 7, 2019

I have been gone for the longest time ever since I started my blog over 10 years ago. Getting back to enjoying life has been harder than I ever expected. Needlepoint has always been my haven of comfort……

I have done some stitching but it is a chore to sit down and get started. WHY❓Here are some pictures of my recent attempts.

I enjoy working on this Christmas tree painted canvas. Simple stitches. Some from the stitch guide, some of my choice. I won this canvas at Seminar in DC.

I visited The Needlepointer shop in Edmonds, WA while I was with my daughter and found this wonderful light. It is LED and works off a USB power pack. It is just what I will need for the ANG seminar. Students can no longer take plug 🔌 in lights. The shop was wonderful.

I have to do some “reverse work” on Bora Bora 😥😥. The dark diamonds are off one thread. My goal for today is to stitch on something. ‼️

    I have been thinking about you and wondering where you were. I did not get a message from you just from WordPress stating that it was formatted wrong and to notify you to reformat it and resend.

    Looking to hear from you again.

    Hope you find your groove soon. But setting a goal of a little bit each day should help you through this time. The tree you are work8ng on is perfect to ease you back into your comfort zone. Love the light!

    I enjoy your blog tremendously and I’m glad to see you back. By the way, the Christmas Tree Topiary is one of my EyeCandy Needleart designs, and I’m thrilled to see you working on it! Can hardly wait for the finish. Please keep stitching AND blogging and things will only get better! Ada

    Enjoy your blog and the beautiful projects. Was also interested in the Daylight light you got—what is the model name/number/. Looks like the perfect one for seminars as well as when not home . Thanks

    I am not surprised you are having trouble getting back to stitching. I went through the same thing and stitching has been the last thing I’ve been able to do again with joy and commitment. Hang in there and don’t force yourself. It will get better!
