January Recap, February Plans

WOW!! I can’t believe that January is already over. That really flew by. I am going to try to do a monthly recap and a monthly goal list at the beginning of each month. I hope that will help keep me on track for the month. So here are some of the things that have been going on around here.

I worked on organizing my space and making some of my stuff a little more cute. This area is still a work in progress as I find better systems that work for me.

One of my monthly goals for this year is to slow down and do more hand embroidery and “slow sewing.” I am sewing along with Badass Cross Stitch, Year of Stitches. She is showing how to do a new stitch each week. Some of them I already know, but I need a refresher even on those.

Another goal for this year is to draw more. I find that slowing down with sketching and embroidery really help to calm my mind when I end up in ADHD overload. The embroidery is a bit like meditation and the drawing is a brain purge. It really helps when I have a million ideas swirling around and can’s seem to grab one. It really does help me focus. Be on the look out for some of these cute little doodles to be turned into some hand embroidery patterns.

 

I didn’t blog as much this month as I have in the past, but I am working on quality over quantity. I am also working on opening up and sharing a little bit more of me and my struggles and triumphs. Here is what you might have missed this month.
