General frustrations and bad embroidery

I am having a real grrrr humpf week this week.  I've got stress at work (end of the financial year drama), and more stress at home because my college project just won't get out of my head and onto paper.  I know what I want to say but just can't get my brain into essay/report writing mode so I'm sitting staring as a blank screen (well really out of the window), and it's driving me nuts.

Anyway I thought I'd get cracking on my embroidery project, as a way to de-stress plus it's a good pick up put down kinda thing to do.  Only the transfer went squiffy, the fabric I picked is too loose a weave and my stitches look clunky and fat, bleugh!

So I've decided to make it a practice version, so I can play around with stitches and stuff.  But I still feel like I've got the opposite of the Midas touch this week.  What about you?  Do you ever get times when whatever you do seems to go wrong?


  1. Yep, all the time :) In fact i have also had one of those days/weeks. I think your embroidery looks good....but anyways, a practise run never hurts (think of it as the embroidery version of a muslin!) x

  2. I LOVE your blog! This is too cute, I use to do some embroidery, you are making me want to do it again.

    Also don't stress about stress! Definitely good to do something you love on a stressful week, it really helps.



Please comment, I'd love to hear from you
