Rue Paris Cross Stitch

Second page out of 18 pages are completed!

It’s been a long time since I worked on my cross stitching.

Update Photos

There’s so much detail and changing of colors. I have been enjoying it.

I will get to work on it more because I’m working from home now. And in between my breaks I can stitch a little.

Happy Day

Second Page Stitching

Rue Paris is coming along. First page has been completed.

Setting up for another page. I’m working the center out.

I’m eager to get more stitching time. My work schedule has been busy. I feel like it’s going to get busier in a few weeks with the stress of the world. I’m still keeping my Saturday and Sunday as my stitching days.

Pray for Ukraine.

Happy Day

Saturday Stitching

Today I worked for a few hours, then went home and took a nap. I have been exhausted. My profession is mental health counseling and I have been busy. Next week even more booked than this week. So having a few hours to stitch has been nice.

I have one more column to stitch and the first page will be completed. Definitely have many more to go.

This pattern has tons of color changes. It will certainly keep me busy for a long period of time.

Below is a close up of the many colors for this pattern.

Stay tuned for more updates

Happy Day

Sunday Stitching

Rue Paris…

It has been awhile since I had a time to stitch on this cross stitch.

Today, I took many naps, kept my legs elevated and stitched..it was a nice quiet day.

I found out I am diagnosed with Lipedema and may also have Lymphedema. It’s going to be difficult if it progresses. Which sounds like it will. I’ll be going to medical appointments more often. Blogging may be on hold for awhile. Yet again. Chronic pain really bites! This upsets me and I’ll most likely blog about it, once I feel comfortable to write.

It’s causing me to rethink about my job and how much I take on. I’ll need to make a change. I’m thinking of a few options.

Saturday Stitching

It’s a cold evening. Getting ready for another snowstorm. This time only about 2 or 3 inches.

I’m settled in with a blanket and the electric fireplace on with my cross stitching supplies.

Here’s the update:

The center row is completed. This pattern has numerous colors. I’m liking the colors and how they blend together.

Tomorrow will be another day of soup, sandwich and stitching while it snows.

At least tomorrow is Sunday.

Happy Day

Rue Paris Cross Stitch

I began this cross stitch the other day. Everything was set up and ready to go.

Just like Derby, I will post my updates as I stitch.

Stitching

Today, I had time to stitch. It is a cold rainy day. Might have a wintery mix later. It’s a good day to put the fireplace on and stitch watching Netflix. I’m watching Supergirl.

The first block is completed. I found the center of the pattern and now working out from that point.

Happy Day

A New Stitch in Town

I finished the winter gathering cross stitch from Dimensions. I made mistakes in it, but worked around it. My sister is gifted this one.

Now I am starting another cross stitch. This one is from Everything Cross Stitch. It is Rue Paris.

All threads are ready to go. I am sure I’ll be heading to Joann’s for more DSM threads in a few weeks.

I will be starting this tomorrow after I work and go to the grocery store.

Happy Day
