Still trying to get into the swing of things!



I don't know what it is but I always have such a hard time to get back into the routines after the holidays and I end up being behind on everything. Maybe it's because I really look forward to some time off from school and I'm exhausted after Thanksgiving and Christmas parties but I just feel like a blob. Somehow I have gotten some stitching done, it was probably when I was blobbing in front of the TV and fire place. STO had a Jan 1st challenge and I pulled out the Travelling Stitcher and it stitched up quickly. I didn't change a thing on it since the threads came with and I had 32 ct lambswool at home.



And STO also had a WIP challenge. Just stitch on a WIP a bit in January instead of starting something new. This little Dimples Design bug has been in the UFO pile for probably 7-8 years since it was driving me bonckers. With an ott light I had a much easier time with it and finished it in 4 days. Clearly I have been overestimating my ability to see without that light.


Finally out of the woods on Christmas Village from Prairie Schooler. Seriously, that's a lot of trees and I almost put this project away. But I pulled it out again after my little finishes and it's whole lot more fun now.

I have 1 fun new start and another one that I'm kitting up so hopefully I'm back with more updates soon.

If there's anyone out there that still stops by, thank you for visiting and for every sweet comment!

I love your stitching! I've always admired those Little Dimples pieces. Your finish of that piece is wonderful! Now I'm going to obsess about them again. lol!

I've been struggling to get any decent stitching done this month, too, Kajsa!! Your bee finish is so beautiful and, of course, I adore your PS Christmas Village. I think the idea of doing all those trees has always kept me from working on my own... some day :)

Gorgeous stitching Kajsa. The bee finish is really beautiful.

Beautiful stitching! I love your PS Christmas Village. There are definitely a lot of trees in that one, lol! Glad to see that you're slowing climbing the hill out of your slump. I think it happens to a lot of us following the holidays.

Lovely stitching, Kajsa! I find it hard to settle in after the holidays, too. I have barely done anything this week so can't figure out what's keeping me busy! :P

Great finishes, Kajsa. Congratualtions! And how great that you pulled out Christmas Village. It's such a beuatiful piece. I can't understand about stitching all the trees but you will love each of them when you are done.

Love your stitching, especially the bee. I know what you mean about being behind after holidays. The combination of Aurelia starting school and the bad weather, I have been having a hard time getting back to normal.
