I started an Instagram in December but I began to use it much more recently!
I use it to update y’all with pictures of progress I make on specific projects and some other pictures of my day! Mainly I use it to celebrate progress on projects (no matter how small the progress or the project!)
Here are some pictures!
I’ve made huge progress on the MWS. I finished February, the raccoon is done! The mushrooms are done! Now to finish May and April. I am debating about adding a little weed in the mushrooms grass
This is a little sneak peek that I posted for a certain design I made for a certain website!
This last picture was just a nice lazy Sunday at my friend’s house. We planted flowers earlier in April and now we get to see the pretty results!
That’s what I’ve been up to! I’ve also been working my boo-tay off at the hospital!
Well, that’s all of the update I have for now!
I’ll update more when I have more to update
I missed y’all.
I have been so busy. I had finals, moved into my summer apartment and went back to work (I’ve done 32 hours in the last 4 days)!!!
I picked up my MWS and started stitching again! I put it down in the beginning of March due to torn floss and a lack of wanting to fix it. Now I am getting caught up with everyone else!
Looking good, right?
I’m also working on an embroidery for Fandom in Stitches that may or may not strongly relate to the Doctor Who Stitch Along being hosted from May 15th to July 31st… Any guesses on which Doctor I designed?
So what have I been doing between stitching like a mad woman and working like a mad woman?
I’ve been hanging out with family and friends. I’ve also been contemplating some samplers and other cross stitches I may or may not want to make using my cross stitching program!
As I venture into finals week (along with many other college students) I find myself making more and more of a cave in the library. I spend long hours amongst research journals studying my own materials wherever I can find a spot. I have become rather feral in my attempts to secure a table for the day. I become even more predatory when there is a line at the cheapo coffee vending machine on the second floor.
How do I stay sane while managing the storm that is finals and the jungle that is the library?
What do I listen to in order to focus on staying strong and studying for finals?
- Woman Up by Charlene Kaye (go listen to this song ASAP! It’s very uplifting!)
- Suit and Tie by Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z
- Hey Mama by Matt Kearney
- Rochester by Matt Kearney
- Grade 8 by Ed Sheeran
- U.N.I. by Ed Sheeran
- Madness by Muse
- Starlight by Muse
I’ve been working on a piece of nonfiction about my dating experiences. It probably isn’t the most exciting story or tragic story in the world but it is certainly awkward and I enjoy writing it. I am utilizing my study breaks productively by writing!
In recent weeks I’ve had a whole bunch of things hit the fan, none of them pleasant smelling. I’ve been struggling to keep my head above water and keep my sanity close by.
In other words, I have not made progress on the Woodland Sampler and I probably won’t pick it up again until sometime in mid-May.
As I venture into finals wish me luck and send up a little prayer for me if you can!
I am a runner. Not a very good runner, but a runner nonetheless.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those who are victims, those who are family, those who are friends and those medical professionals serving the masses. My thoughts and prayers go out to Boston.
