casa hart has been hit with colds and the flu. i have been in bed for two days straight. and regardless of how i dream of that kind of break on my crazier mamahood-homeschooling days, it is not all it is cracked up to be. i am bored. not to mention feeling yucky.
i have been slowly stitching away at my embroidery hoops since i have been so bored. in between the achiness and chills that is. didn't this turn out pretty? feeling stitchy is hosting a february stitch-along and i thought i would join in. if you look closely you can see my lazy daisy stitches need a lot of practice. these were my first try at them. which is why joining in sounded like fun. i haven't crafted just for the sake of creating in a while. i almost always have a specific reason. a gift, home decor, something for practical use or for the shoppe . . . all good reasons. . . but i miss working a stitch just because it will be pretty. no place i plan on using it. no person i plan on giving it to. being okay with the uncertainty. knowing it will find its home in due time.
does that make sense?
i have stitched up a few other lovelies that i will get around to showing you at some point. maybe when they find their first home.
jesse needs to be away all day tomorrow, so i am just praying i can make it through without him. can anyone say movie day? he was such a rockstar the last few days.
we still have three more guests in the gifts from the heart series! this has been super fun, don't you think?
