Break From Blogger

Hey guys,

So I haven't been feeling the blogging mojo for a while now, so I'm going to take a break. I'm not sure when I'll be back.

I'll still be posting stitchy pics on Instagram, so you can come find me there if you like XD I'm therapy_by_thread over there.

Gaming Over Stitching

Pokemon Go is now out in Canada. Let's just say that I have been taking a lot of walks during the time I would usually be stitching.

This is reflected in my current progress. I've outlined about half the eyes. I think I need to re-evaluate my theory that I'll have this finished by the end of the month...

On To The Shiny

Currently listening to the full cast production of American Gods. It's good, but I've long been spoiled for everything so it isn't as thrilling or captivating as it could be. I have finished off the DMC and started the Kreinik, so that's a plus.

Barring any major real life issues or a complete loss of mojo, I should have this done by the end of the month!

June Achievements & July Goals

I can't believe half the year is over. It seems like just yesterday I was toasting in the new year!

Goals for June:
1. Finish Swirling Peacock's tail.I got a huge chunk of it done but I'm not finished.
2. Finish the next Heart. No. I think I should just accept that I don't feel like fixing the Hearts, so they're on indefinite pause.

Goals for July:
1. Finish Swirling Peacock.

Keeping it short and simple (and potentially achievable) next month.

A Good Book Will Take You Far

I was hoping to finish the tail this month, but I don't think that will happen. On the positive side I listened to a really great audiobook this week (League of Dragons by Naomi Novik) and was pretty much glued to my needlework the whole time. Swirling Peacock went from this:

Now I just need to find another good audiobook to listen to XD
