Silent Vigil Part 3

Ok so it's time for the latest on the cross stitch. I haven't really had much time to work on this recently and while I have been dying to get back to creative things I'm finding it really difficult to stay awake in the evenings after work and MIL duties!

Fortunately as much of the remaining stitching on this kit is just half stitching and outlining even grabbing time to add a few stitches here and there seems to make for reasonable progress. So just as a quick reminder this is what it was like when you last saw it. And this is where we are now.Ooops, I think I should have taken the iron to it before taking the picture, lol. Since last time I've completed the background stitching on the right side, outlined the moon and added the final colour layer to the edge of the sunburst.

I'm going to be away again this weekend so I don't see a whole lot of stitching time again this week, but if I do manage to fit some in I want to try and get the beading done on the right side of the cross stitch and work on a set of postcards.

On a totally different tack, I remember someone leaving a comment in the past on one of my posts which made me think that it would be fun to keep a joy journal, to record ordinary moments each day which fill the soul with happiness. Well as with all of my creative inspirations I never did get this off the ground but suddenly thought that maybe I could record some moments of joy on my blog posts so here is the first.

MOMENTS OF JOY: Acting like a kid by walking barefoot in a summer rain storm Tuesday evening, jumping in all the puddles along the way. Sadly I didn't have a camera with me to record the moment but this was the most blissful feeling.

You are motivating me to get out a cross stitch project that has been langushing for YEARS! Maybe I will have it out before you finish this one.
