I have managed to get add some stitches to this piece. Slow stitching indeed. A few days ago I decided I simply must find more time to express myself with stitch. I NEED to feel more productive. Helping look after my almost three-year-old granddaughter is a privilege, joy, taxing and oh so much more. I know it is special but it does not feel productive to me. At least not art-wise. I have gathered my stitching projects into one pile and committed to adding a little bit of stitching to each one of them every day if possible.
