March started with an overload of work-related stress. It made stitching take a back seat at the beginning of the month. I’ll be honest, I really want to take a vacation right about now. Just a little mental break. Like a three-day weekend. Boy, that sounds really good right now. I probably won’t do something like that until midweek of April. I can fantasize about all the sleep and stitching for now.
Here is what I’ve stitched over the past couple of weeks.
I apologize for the picture. I realized too late this might not be the best photo of the new stitches.
I’ve switched from stitching one column (which is 100 stitches/section and around 8-full sections a column) to two columns at once. What you’re seeing are 6 sections, or 600 stitches. Which isn’t too bad for being busy this month.
I started stitching two columns on the Surprise Stitch and wanted to try it with AF4. The transition from SS to AF4 posed tiresome in the first 100 stitches. On the last stitching of SS, SS had about 8 different colors to stitch. Doing two columns for SS seemed practical. AF4…not so much. AF4 has around 15 different color changes right now. So…the first 100 stitches of these two columns took some time to get. Once I got it, I think I like doing two columns. I’ll probably stitch with it. *Har har har*
I miss stitching on SS! I’m not switching to SS. I plan to continue stitching AF4 for next post. I have to at least finish these columns. It’s motivation for me to stitch faster haha.
*By the way, I’m reading Pema Chodron’s “How to Meditate” and I remember someone recommended it here last year. I want to say thank you to whoever recommended this book. I really love it (^_^). It’s very enlightening and mind expanding. I wish I read it when you suggested it earlier.*
