Two finishes

Commission Stitching

Let’s talk a little bit about commission stitching. I’ve done a bit of commission stitching before. Quiet recently, in fact. I usually only take pieces that are small, quick, and easy so I can knock them out and not feel bored with them for too long. I also only do commissions for people I trust…

Stitching myself out of a funk

I’ve said it before. I have depression. Sometimes it’s easy to start stitching myself out of a funk. Sometimes not. This time, surprisingly, I’m half-way out of the latest funk. The latest round of depression. Things haven’t been going well. There are personal issues I won’t talk about, but there’s my anxiety about upcoming things,…

After Maynia finishes

Maynia is over for another year. Time to work on the ‘after Maynia finishes’! With Maynia over, but May still going, I’m working on beefing up my Maynia finishes list. I have 8 so far. Granted, it’s not the 18 I had hoped for, but I’ll take what I can get. Let’s get this list…

The Last Week of Maynia

This is it folks. The last week of Maynia for me. In a long 17 day journey I found I still don’t stitch as quickly as I used to lol. But that’s okay. It’s the last week of Maynia. Anything goes! The last week of Maynia saw some rather small starts, and a surprising amount…

Stitch Maynia week one

In the first week of Stitch Maynia, I stitched for me . . . Five shiny things!¬† Stitch Maynia heralds the scramble to start (or work on) a bunch of projects. Some people use Stitch Maynia to just work on one project instead of their normal rotation. Whatever works for each person. This year I’m…

For the first time in forever

For the first time in forever, I noticed myself feeling . . . happy. Content, even. Today I found myself not dreading the future. I wasn’t thinking about how I’ll probably never get the things I want, or my approximation of a happy ending. I felt . . . joy. For the first time in…

Such wonderful news!

Ladies and gentlemen, my dear readers, I have wonderful news. The ever lovely flosstuber¬†Sitcherista has posted a video review of some of my fabrics! I contacted her last month asking if she’d like to receive a few items in exchange for a review. Clearly she said yes, and so off I went to send a…
