Free time

Update on my stitching projects

I finished my exams and I’ve passed them all. Technically, that means I’ve finished university, but I still have 2 exams that I didn’t pass (from previous years) and one big exam that I will have in February next year.

I guess I should be proud of myself. I actually was happy when I saw the results. But, we got some bad news and I’m once again in a bad place. I am not superstitious, but I’m really starting to think nothing good will happen this year. We’ve had so many bad things happen, one after another, that it’s really hard to keep a positive attitude.

So, I’ve wasted my free time stitching. Nothing bad can happen if you do nothing productive.

I’ve started a smaller stitching project and in 3 days I’ve advanced a lot.

 Today is a holiday and of course I’m not allowed to stitch. So here is how my two projects are standing:

At this rate I will finish the smaller project in a week or two. Hopefully, it will turn out OK. I’m having second doubts regarding the shade of the face.

Not what I had in mind

It’s no surprise when things don’t work out the way we plan them. It’s just a surprise when almost everything goes wrong!

I’m tired of us being grumpy and gloomy. I’m tired of being tired all the time. I gave up on doing things, fun things, because staying in bed seemed the best thing to do. I won’t complain about me sleeping and getting a good night’s rest, but I don’t feel any better when I wake up (even after 16 hours, which I think is my personal record so far).

Oh well, things could always get worse. So I won’t complain anymore.

Hopefully, our good cheer and motivation will come back. I just want to finish the things that I started and get on with life (including my blog).
