I'm Back

I'm back, sort of. I took a bit of a break from stitching for the past month. Between being stuck at home and fasting, I didn't have the energy or focus to do any stitching. That is all over now, as our last day of fasting was this weekend. I'm hoping to get back to my regular routine. I picked up my needle for the first time on Saturday and the weather was so nice I spent Saturday and Sunday stitching in our backyard.

I think Bramble and the Rose will be this year's outdoors stitching piece. It would be nice if I can get to the half-way point on this piece.

I want to get back to stitching on Midnight Meander and Hiogi, but I also want to get the finishing completed on Elizabeth. There is a trunk and doll to do. I needed some skirtex and my friend was nice enough to drop off some for me. So I will be working on that on the evenings when I can't stitch. I did a look around online and didn't find any writings on the finishing process for this design. I will work hard on documenting the process so I can share it here. Should be an interesting.

I'm on time for my TUSAL report. There's lots of black and white last month as I mainly worked on Midnight Meander and Dolcetti. Although it is excessively more than there should be. Sad to say I've had to put my embroidery aside for the last week. We started fasting last Friday and after making a huge mistake in Midnight Meander on Saturday and then another one on Sunday on Dolcetti, I decided it was safer not to touch any of my projects for a little while.

Used wrong beads
Found a counting mistake
I've been keeping busy doing other things like reading and watching shows, but I always have this nagging feeling I should be stitching on something. I'm going to try and give it another go this weekend and see what happens.
