This past week I decided to change up projects that I was working on as I figured I need a bit of a change. It felt great being able to focus on other things and put the cross stitch down for a week. I haven't picked up my cross stitch for just over a week now, and I have to admit that it was a nice change.
I started the week with 49 stitches on the needle and ended the week with 122 stitches, and it felt good seeing that progress. I am now going to see how much of this shawl that I can get done this week, as it would be nice to see more of it finished. I haven't really even looked at the ball of yarn yet, so should try and do that soon so that I know roughly how much more yarn I have for this shawl. I love working on this project as it is something that I can quickly pick up and work on without stressing about what row I am currently on.
The picture if only the motifs that I made this week, and I have lots of the larger motifs finished for one project and the smaller motifs are only part of what I will be using for the scrap throw that I will be working on.
Other projects - well, this week I can honestly say that I didn't work on any other projects. I was either knitting or working on English paper piecing, and it felt good. I am not sure what this coming week has in store, but I know that I will try and work on something most days. I have found that even spending a few minutes each day doing something that I love helps me recharge my personal batteries.
I hope everyone has a good week, and you can find that bit of time each day to do something that you enjoy doing. I would like to see some progress on a project or two this coming week, so that means that I will need to find those bits of time. Have a good week, and hopefully I will have some progress on something to show you next week.
