Long time no see! I'm still stitching!

Hi! It's been so long since the last time I've posted!
More than one month?
But, I was still stitching, stitching is useful in getting rid of stress for me.

But the other hand, I haven't been well this past one month.
Almost every day I had headache, and also wasn't feeling well like car sickness...
I know why these symptons happen always to me, though I won't tell about it here at the moment.

I was going to finish, Mary Glover SAL, and also "Isabella Johnstone SAL (Private SAL)" with Terri, but as I have been having headache, I couldn't stitch over 32ct.
So I have changed the plan now.

I also was going to stitch this "The Garden Glade" © Carriage House Samplings on 36ct or 40ct, though I gave up and now am stitching this on 32ct Belfast Linen.

It uses so many threads as stitching two strands, though it's so fun to stitch along!
Actually I like to fill in blank area, so it's fun for me now to fill in! :D

Here is a photo of "The Garden Glade" progress of this afternoon.
Most of animals are appeared now, so fill in blank area and will stitch to the top area.

Whew, quite hard to stitch all this whole design, though isn't this beautiful already??
I love this colourful and cheerful design so much and wanted to stitch this so much, so now I'm am happy! :D

Tomorrow, I have to have counselling at clinic and am quite nervous today.
Because I have to face to my past bitter and hard life.
But Dr. said that it's the shortcut to cure this ill, so I will try to do so...

Take care and have a lovely day!
Thank you for your visit and comments!

Hi Yuko,

It's good to see you here again! Glad you took the time to post despite not feeling well. Your Garden Glade is looking great. You have a much better attitude than me about the filling in! I am a little behind you in progress on this one and I put it aside because of the filling in!

Good luck with your counselling session and I hope you feel better soon!

Wendy said...

Hi Yuko~ I love the sampler you are working on. Stitching really is like therapy I think. I'm sure your counselling will be hard work but worth it overall. Feel better soon!

mAtilda said...

ciao carissima yuko, sono davvero felice di rivederti. mi piace molto anche il tuo sampler.

hello, my dearest yuko, I am indeed happy for see again you. I love your sampler in work.

Rachel said...

Stitching is a great way to relax from stress. Your progress on your samplers looks lovely.

Good luck at your doctor's appt.

Jennifer said...

So happy to see you back! Don't feel so bad - I've been shamefully neglecting my blog as well.

I think counseling will be a big help to you. In my own life, I've found that I can really make a mess of things in my own head and getting them out by talking to someone makes them seem more manageable and not as scary. I think the act of putting all the things in your head into concrete words by talking or writing really helps you get a handle on them.

Yes, it will be difficult to do so, and you may even feel it's getting worse. but trust me, it DOES get better. It really, really does. (((Yuko)))

I'm so sorry to hear of more stress-related illness for you: I definitely can understand those from my own experience.

I am hoping for the best for you from the appointment about which you were nervous (even though it has already passed).

I love this beautiful design, however. Sometimes DMC is so restful and beautiful.

Meanwhile, I finally launched my design house with a freebie and a giveaway! If you haven't already I'd love it if you stop by my blog to see it!

And there is also a separate drawing only for purchasers of the freebie's kit available here:
