An update

So it's been a rough couple of weeks.

 On August 30, I became, unexpectedly, unemployed.  And let me just say, that sucked.

Things are looking up now and I have to totally agree with "When one door closes, another door opens" because I've found my open door and have gone through it.  

Sadly, I didn't do a lot of stitching over the last two weeks.  My stitchy bug was chased away by the funk I found myself in.  Maybe it went on vacation with my appetite since I didn't have that either.  I lost 15 pounds which I'm totally aware isn't good.

Anyway.  I finished band 4 on Loara Standish

Then she was put away.

I pulled Beaded Dragonfly Tile back out and did make a bit of progress, mostly over a weekend.

Sea Witch came back out.

And I couldn't settle in with it.  So it was put away.

Then I decided maybe a new start would help and I pulled out a Kreinik Kit I bought at Hobby Lobby years ago, back when they actually had more than Dimensions kits.  This was probably about the time I was buying Mirabilia charts there.

I started 

 and progress my first night

Sorry to hear about your job loss but I hope this new opportunity is even better. Look after yourself honey, I know how stressful this time is for you. Happy to hear that your stitching can be a source of comfort. You've achieved some lovely progress on your wips.
Take care
