We are continuing to work remotely and yes there are some challenges but at least everyone is safe when we do it this way. Outings are limited to the essential trips so staying put is what we are doing and I have been able to continue to get bits of crafting done so that makes me feel good.
Last week I said that I was going to change the fabric that I was using and I did but still didn't like how they were turning out so instead of changing fabric I changed the floss that I was using. The entire snowman is now stitched in the new Diamant thread by DMC. It is a metallic thread and I have to admit that I enjoyed working with this thread. Yes it has its issues like all the metallic threads but it worked up pretty easily once I figured out how to handle it. As you can see I have most of the snowman now completed and I am looking forward to moving onto the next ornament. I have three sets of ornaments to make so trying to decide if I am going to work on each set or should I try and get at least two of the snowman done first. I guess I will figure that out after I get this one done.
This year everything seems so different as we approach the holiday season and a lot of that is all the running around that we normally do. This year things are so different for everyone and I know as I have talked to friends they have all said the same thing. We continue to make sure that we are wearing our masks, social distancing and staying home as much as possible.
I hope everyone continues to find the time each day to do something that you love doing. It may help a bit as we all need that time to just focus on something happy. I try each day to find even those few minutes to pick up one of my crafts and forget about everything else that is going on in the world. Hope you have a good week and please stay safe.
