April Stitching and Stash Acquisition

A quick look at everything I worked on in April…. I actually didn’t Instagram or do progress pics on anything all month, so I just grabbed what was out and took photos just now while I was writing this. I was in such a rhythm at the beginning of the year – stitch, photo, blog – it’s so weird how hard it is to get back into a routine once it gets wonked up for a bit.

Stitching progress was made on:

March Stitching and Stash Acquisition

So after some really nice progress in January and February, March was kind of a dud. I did very little stitching and I didn’t even get the newsletter out here during the month. The only thing I stitched on was the Rainbow SAL and I didn’t even finish the March medallion, just the outline parts. So disappointed with myself 🙁
