Mhm, it looks like it has been two months since I posted…. Where did the time go? I feel a bit guilty because I have not posted or commented in such a long time, but I just needed the time to sort things out. Thank you for the lovely comments you made on my last entry, they truly built me up =)
I have moved in the middle of June and by now it actually looks like a place where a person could live here. A bit of furniture is still missing and a few things haven’t found their place yet, but I feel comfortable. Some days, especially in the evenings, I feel lonely , I just want someone to talk to or someone to hug, but I guess that will get better in time. Getting a giant cuddly giraffe by the name of Sophus Lie definitely helps with that 😉
As for my feelings I can say, that I am feeling a bit better. Let’s say that Paul found a good way to make me not miss him anymore…….. I’m happy that I have my place now and that he is gone… Being single again is fine for me now, whenever I feel the slightest hint of anything for a guy I just want to run away until it’s gone, so I guess I need some more time for myself 😉
I have been very busy with university stuff the last weeks, I’m still working on my Bachelor thesis, which will hopefully be ready soon. The good thing about this is, that I just didn’t have the time to feel that miserable 😉
As fo stitching… Well, I’m doing it again! I made a small new start called “QS A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (AMSND) , which is a Haed-Freebie Michele shared via facebook some months ago. It’s just one page, so it’s a really quick QS… The size is 75×89 (I guess?) and I am already halfway through:
So I will soon have a finish, yay! I started this because I didn’t feel like starting something huge, I needed something I could actually finish 😉 The BAP-newstarts are coming soon, so don’t worry 😉 I don’t know when I started this, but it must have been July by then…
Another few weeks ago I felt the urge to stitch on Yule Angel (haha, a Christmas chart while it’s terrible hot in Germany… or was, it’s better now), just a few easy stitches, less confetti than AMSND…I already stitched down one skin of 939 (ok, I’m using the same dye lot for Rheingold, you may remember that I bought 15 skins from the same dye lot some ages ago…) I’m currently 8100 stitches into this, so just some 2000 stitches left of page 2. This means that a page finish is close, too, so double-yay!
So here is how my Angel looked last time you saw her
As for my yearly goals… I decided to drop them… I’m very happy that I found my love for stitching again, even if I have not been able to pick up my YOTA pieces again (way to many memories connected to them…..). I just don’t want to push things now, I’m a bit worried that I might lose my stitchy bug again. So I’m working on the projects I feel like and see what I will get done. I just want to try and pick all my projects up once this year.
I guess I will have a few new starts in the near future, I feel like starting things these days, so I will just do it. One project is “Noble Spirit” by Jody Bergsma, I have the threads here, but I need to wind a few more before I can start. I love the design, but I don’t know when I will start it.
Another one is a new chart I just got a few days ago (I could not help it, I just fell in love).
It’s called “Starlight” by David Hoffrichter, who is quite new to HAED.
Let’s just say that there was a 53%-sale…. 😉
Another addition to my stash is “Ice Palace” by Ciro Marchetti. I got this from the one and only wonderful Crafty Princess Alicia to cheer me up! You are so sweet honey, one day I will be more than happy to return the favor!
Well, I don’t know what else to say right now… I’m spending my days with maths, stitching and a lot of reading… I’m just trying to move on these days… It feels weird, but I think I can do it. I don’t need a guy to know who I am and what I am capable of, I am able to live on my own. I have said things like “I can’t do that” many time during the last 12 weeks, but I could and here I am, stronger than ever.
I hope I will post more often now, maybe I will be able to get back to posting weekly again… But I won’t push it 😉
Happy stitching =)
