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.

Busy Bee

It’s 9PM and I am tired.

I’ve been a busy bee today. I’m proud to say I completed every task I set my mind on and even a little extra. I may be a long way till the end result, but I’m still happy.

I had work today, after work a short visit to the in-laws and back home. I finished ironing clothes for the next week, still have another batch prepared for tomorrow. I’ve cleaned our closet and it’s so nice now that I can find something without digging in a pile of clothes.

Somehow cleaning helps me relax but at the same time it kills my body. At least I am sure I will have a good night sleep.
