Working on What You Love

 I often get caught up in the excitement of new releases, projects that my friends are working on, etc.

But I was looking at my list of things to stitch and I realized that only one is truly calling my name: Modern Folk Embroidery's 2024 SAL:

I "should' be working on my 17th century casket. I "should" be working on my Sampler Book. I "should" be finishing projects. But this is my hobby. I will stitch what brings me joy.

Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop

 Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching is hosting this fun blog hop. We sent her a photo of something we would love to see stitched and she sent them out randomly so we can hop around and see who received our Valentine.

Same fabric-Pink Chocolate by BeStitchMe . But I changed to Vikki Clayton's silk, which are going so much better. I want to get to the point where I can stick some of the red color in before I stop for the month.
