April 30-May 8, 2017. Hello! I am back from vacation and so are my stitches. I intended to stitch while I was visiting my hometown, but I am lucky enough to have tons of friends and family to spend time with when I am there. I was raised in Florida and now live in California, so I don't get to go home often. Even though I was away for nearly ten days (!), my time felt limited and my time to stitch felt even more limited. I decided to truly take a vacation from everything, including email and social media, so that I could completely enjoy the company of the people I saw all the while taking in my hometown. I've said it many times, but breaks are so important. I say this repeatedly because it's difficult for me to slow down; have a tendency to overextend myself and burn out. And I've been feeling burnt out, but after this trip I feel quite revived. If you scroll through you will see some of the stitches I did add, but it was not a daily act. The new color for May is pink! #1yearofstitches #wip #embroidery #embroideryart #handembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #bordado #broderie #embroideryinstaguild #stitches #red #pink #doodle #threaddoodle #deatil #deatilshot #home #embroideryonthego #vacation #takeabreak #thread #fiberart #sewing #textiles #textileart #art #needleandthread
