If you've been following my #100daysofxstitch daily cross stitches you'll have noticed they made an abrupt stop a few weeks ago. What can I say, life got hectic & M.E fought back.
I'm actually really proud of how much I've managed to do these last few weeks whilst moving my best friend into my house. I'm not good with change when it's focused on my little nest & jeez, there's been a lot of change! I'm trying to keep reminding myself that after putting up with my house looking like I'm losing at Jumanji for the last month or so it'll be better than ever once we're all sorted. I now have a decorated & carpeted bedroom - given I moved in to magnolia, magnolia & more magnolia 4 years ago it's about bloomin' time I put my stamp on the place. I can honestly say it's growing to be home, rather than my shiny new house.
As you know by now change plus physical & mental exertion for me equals a fair amount of ZombieDonna. Mmmmm, braaaiiiiiins.
Back to #100days...
I've been designing patterns each day, well most days throughout the process but just haven't had chance to actually stitch them between being mega-busy & dead to the world. I've come to the decision, therefore, that I'll be carrying on with the project but spoonie style - in my own good time!
I'll do 100 days, they just won't be consecutive days all the time. I would have finished the project on the 14th of August by doing one each day so I guess this is turning into my own little experiment to see just how much I get done when I'm gentle on myself working around my health rather than against it all the time.
So, keep your eyes peeled for more #100daysofxstitch & remember, if you subscribe to the newsletter all of the charts will be available to download for FREE. :D

I have to confess I didn't stitch this today, it's one 9 year old me prepared earlier. 28ct fabric with a single heavyweight thread rather than floss - I made my own rules even then, ha!
