Stitch Therapy

Discovering me … one stitch at a time


Work has been turning me into a grump, so I decided that an attitude shift was in order. Last week, I tried really hard not to COMPLAIN and, you know what, it worked! I felt much more positive by week’s end.

It may also have helped that I got a lot of stitching time. On Friday, I brought my cross stitching to work and spent my lunch time stitching in the park. A stitch break was just what I needed.

Friday night, I sewed my first pair of pajama pants (for Biggest)! It was pretty exciting.

Stephanie and I hung out on Saturday. Lunch (Yum!), followed by a trip to the fabric store (Yay!), followed by afternoon cocktails (YUMMM!), followed by a quiet evening at home with TV and stitching (Perfection!). I am making good progress on this.

Sunday was sooooooooooper productive. I spent almost all day in the kitchen (Fun!). I made:

  • chocolate zucchini bread
  • regular bread
  • spaghetti sauce (for this week)
  • more pickles (New recipe… this one is a keeper!)
  • meatloaf, potatoes, and green beans (for dinner)

I love productive days! I also did laundry, went grocery shopping, cleaned up the house, and made another pair of these…

  1. Stitching in the park during work sounds great!

  2. aw your sewing buddy is such a cutie! Those pajamas look awesome too, were they difficult to do? 🙂

  3. They were so easy- a great first project! I expect that everyone I know will be getting pajama pants for Christmas this year! Haha.

  5. You are on a roll with your new machine! I’ll bet the boys love their super cool pajama pants made with love by Mommy. Your stitching is looking fabulous!

  6. Thanks Ginny! I’m having fun making pajama pants, but it might be time to try something else! haha

I love to hear from you!
