Kindness challenge - week one

Last week (my first week in the challenge) my focus was on being kind and mindful to myself. To my surprise it went very well. Not even once I was angry with myself. Every morning I spent a few minutes meditating and stretching my muscles. I paid attention to feeding my body with enjoyment and taking care of it. I went for a short road trip. I even stitch some! Look, I have finished Santa #4 and #5, right now I'm working on Santa #6.

 

And this is the whole project with four Santas done.


It looks like I will work on Santa's 12 days of Christmas for some time (until it is done!) and then I think I will go back to another lovely project that I started during Super Duper Crazy Challenge 2015
called Honest, kind and good. It will fit well with my kindness challenge.

So long my friends,
Evalina

  11. Yay for having a wonderful kind-to-yourself week Evalina! And your stitching is lovely as always. It'll be fun to see you working on Honest, Kind and Good piece as well. I took a peek to see what it looks like, and I think it should have a subtitle: Beauty Given, Patience and Hard Work Required. :-)

  15. I'm so happy that you are enjoying the kindness challenge. I agree we need to be more kind to each other but the first step is the self.

    And your Santa's are absolutely amazing. The colours look so rich against that beautiful linen.
