|Linen and Threads Mystery SAL '19 - Feb 21|
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL ' 19 - here is a project that I will be working on each month this year and I am looking forward to seeing the continued changes on this piece.
The February section was a lot of work as it was completing all the borders that will help in the placement of 8 elements. Once the elements have been stitched there will be a border around the entire piece. This week I was able to get the top section of the border completed so now I am waiting to see what the March section will be.
It is amazing to think that this is the third year that Linen and Threads have released a mystery stitching along and it has been free to anyone on the internet. Each year it has been a monthly release and the only cost that a stitcher incurs is the cost of the fabric and thread that they use as well as the time that they spend stitching. The pattern is free.

Crafts that I enjoy is how I stitch my mind back together at the end of the day. Stitching is the final thing that I do most evenings even if it is only a couple of stitches. I ensure that all the other tasks that I have to do are completed and then I sit down and either just look at the piece or put a few stitches in on something to help me relax before going to bed. Stitching is either knitting, crocheting or cross stitch is a way for me to quiet my mind to ensure that when I go to bed, I go to sleep instead of thinking about all the tasks that I will be facing the next day.
It is now time to get some work done here at my desk so hope everyone has a great week and you all find the time to do the things that you love to do.
