Sitting Around


Not a lot of work as I am struggling with fatigue.

The cross stitch progresses, with set backs.  Quite a bit of unpicking, I just can't concentrate to count.

And to the Textile Artist on-line workshop, the piece goes in fits and starts.

I hadn't realised just how much I am influenced by the sea that surrounds our island.  This piece responds to the ebb and flow of the surrounding waters.  As to stitches I have chosen, I really didn't make a conscious choice, I just followed how I felt,  This is a very relaxing way to work.

I always feel that counted work requires too much concentration for the fatigued! Something a little more free-form is almost certainly easier!

I tried both, but I just have to accept the fatigue and get over it.

Yes, freeform is the most relaxed form of stitching. Let the cross stitch take a rest, too, and work on the workshop piece.
