Finally a bit of progress
Finally I can say that I was able to sit down and put a few stitches into Blackbird over this last week. I didn't get a lot of time to stitch but I did spend one evening working on Blackbird so that I could see a little bit of a change.
It was nice to see the bird start to appear a little more once I was able to sit down and work on it again. This week I am hoping to be able to spend at least one evening working on it but will see if I can maybe find a bit more time.
There are a couple of reasons why I haven't been doing a lot on Blackbird and one of them is work. I have been busy with work and by the end of the day I don't have a lot of energy left and trying to focus on a cross-stitch isn't something that is very easy to do. The other reason is I am working on a piece for an Art Show in April so that is getting most of the time and energy that I can find right now. I need the piece finished and framed by early April so it is getting the most time right now.
I haven't even picked up my crochet hook over the last week so that really says a lot about my energy level.
I have missed being able to stitch and show the progress that I have been making on the projects that I have been doing. At least once the Art Show is over I will have a bit more time to stitch and be able to show what I am working on.
It's now time for me to try and get some work done and then see if I can find some time and energy to stitch this evening.
