Purely on a whim I brought an alphabet cross stitch sampler, I’ve been throwing myself into cross stitch projects lately.
My cousins little girl is 3 in September and as I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of looking at the sale in Hobby Craft I ended up with 3 new cross stitch projects.
I was working on a houses of parliament scene but I had to put it on the back burner for a while.
As you can see I’ve still got a lot of work to do but when it’s done it will be amazing. I have to put aside pretty much everything else to work on it daily but I managed 3 squares last week so I need to do at least 4 this week.
At least it’s challenging me and focussing my mind on something positive and when it’s done I have more projects I can focus on.
It’s quite an anti-social hobby due to the amount of concentration required and being isolated isn’t really what I need right now but I have people to talk to while I work and that helps me forget too.
