There is something about seeing substantial progress that is both deeply satisfying and highly motivating. :)
Christmas Day was a very chill day for me, most of which was spent working on Ciara Blue by Blackwork Journey.
This piece is often mind-numbingly repetitive and boring, but it is also stunningly beautiful. Even though there is still a long way to go, I am excited about the finish.
My desire to work on the blackwork was inspired a little by doing the backstitching on the first owl in Wise Wisdom by Stoney Creek. As you can see … backstitching makes such a difference!
Working on some of my WIPs (like Ciara Blue) that I haven't touched in months certainly rejuvenates my stitchy bug.
