weekend progress

my favorite time to stitch is on the weekends. hours of uninterrupted time to stitch, to be lazy, to watch football, and maybe pepper in a few naps and meals. 

with the quick turnarounds and high demands that i encounter at my job, the weekends are my time to recharge my batteries, wash my makeup off and chill out. 

stitching has become so much more than a hobby to me, it has become an effective tool in helping me "come down" at the end of the day. it helps me be quiet, focused and calm.

this weekend i made more progress and more x's

one pumpkin down...two more to go!

what does stitching do for you?


  1. It has that same calm restorative effect on me. And everybody around here knows it. When my kids were little and the day was long, they would say mom needs some stitching. My son would ask me if I wanted a "new canbas". Wonderful hobby of ours this needlepoint!

  2. Hope everything is ok? I'm missing your posts and usually so regular.

  3. You have been in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you are ok.
