Finally - An Accomplishment!

I have to apologize for my absence the past week. I've not been feeling well and I haven't had much stitching to show. I have done a tiny bit more stitching on "Peach Tree Cottage" but it is coming along very very slowly as a result of my exhaustion and other ailments.

Yesterday I finally felt like I needed to just finish something so I could have at least a tiny taste of success. So I stitched the PS "Peep" freebie. It is tiny and precious. I'm planning a miniature pinkeep or ornament for this one. I changed the colors around a bit as I wanted the background to be blue instead of the green it calls for. My stitches are kind of sloppy and uneven, but I really wasn't that invested in making it a show-stopper and was just glad I got it finished. I think of every piece as another learning experience :)

Thanks for visiting and for all your wonderful wishes on my last post about being so tired. I know I don't "know" any of you, but I feel like I have some stitching friends out there in the world wide web!

Sometimes getting a simple thing finished can make your day. Just like marking just ONE thing off a to-do list :)

Hope you feel better soon.
