I just haven’t been stitching as much as I would like. Literally just a few stitches at a time, if any at all.
I’m dealing with major all over inflammation for the millionth time and it just makes everything feel so much harder and more exhausting than it actually is. My scissors might as well weigh a hundred pounds. Add to that the need to do things like work and going buy groceries, and it isn’t leaving much energy left for stitching at the end of it all.
So I’m stitching a row here, a row there, and leaving my stitching set up in my stand next to me even if I’m not working on it.
But in all of this dealing with inflammation and autoimmune disorders stacked on top of one another, I’ve found that sometimes I feel better just getting my supplies out and setting up as if I were going to be stitching all day and all night can make me feel better, even if I don’t place a single solitary stitch on the fabric. And at this point, anything that makes me feel even a tiny bit better is a win.
