I stopped my Crazy Challenge and I have no idea what cured me from my craziness. I'm suffering from startitis for many years. All of a sudden last night an unthinkable thing happen; I had untouched fabric, chart, floss and needles right on the front of me and I could not make even one stitch... I never had that feeling of resistance before... My sanity screamed "Evalina, you have over 30 WIPs, STOP! Finish what you've started and then start again!"
A few days ago, I think it was Monday - I was at work and with every hour going by I was feeling worse and worse. First I was just sneezing, later headache came and running nose and cough and muscle ache and shivers... I was swept of my feet for the next three days. I didn't slept so much since I can remember. In my tiny waking hours I stitched some - but I wasn't able to read or even to watch TV. Anyhow, today I'm feeling better and finally can go to work. I'm so well rested that I got up at 4:30 this morning and do not get me wrong, I do not I love my job but it is a way of making money and I do not get paid when I'm sick and staying home. If I only knew how I can make a decent leaving while working from home... (now I'm day dreaming)
Going back to stitching. Linda of Stitching with my Furbabies started SAL (stitch along) Halloween House by Urusla Michael. It's a lovely design so I'd join.
For some reason the white background did not appeal to me (model was stitched on 14ct white aida), I decided to stitch this piece on cashel linen Haunted and for cobwebs (frame around it) instead of black I'll use light gray. Here is how it looks so far:
So long my friends,
