Peach Tree Cottage

I would love to say that I've been stitching non-stop on LHN's Peach Tree Cottage since Saturday. But that just isn't the case. Instead, I've been yearning to crawl into Peach Tree Cottage and rest my eyes. I imagine it's decorated shabby-chic inside, with country touches in every corner and perfectly worn furniture that has a story to tell. I would tuck myself under a heavy quilt in one of the upstairs bedrooms and take a nice, long nap. That's how I've been feeling lately - like I want to shut out the world and sleep. Exhaustion is really no fun, and tackling it when you are the sole care-giver of a two year old until 5:30 every evening is especially no fun. I really need to shake this!


This is all the progress that I've made on Peach Tree Cottage since I started it (barely) Saturday night. Most of this was actually stitched yesterday when I was feeling a little less tired and a little more productive. I am loving this piece. The colors are fantastic and I really love the design. I wish I could force myself to spend more time on it. Maybe I'll get over this lethargy and really get busy with this project! Here's hoping!

You are all making such amazing progress with your projects! Thank you all so much for taking the time to read my amateur stitching blog and post comments and suggestions. I appreciate it more than I can say. You all inspire me so much!

your selfish older sister (that two minutes means something!) wants to know when you're going to add her little project to your list of monthly goals? Every month she checks back to see if her little kitty made the list...and every month she comes up empty handed! Sad...

Nice start Kim!

Tanya said...

Nice beginning, Kim :) Maybe if you eat some peaches during stitching breaks, it will inspire you to stitch more. LOL Great design for the summertime.

It's looking good. I remember when I was cross stitching. I had a ball. I made so many gifts for people and it was so much fun and they just loved them because it was so personal. Good luck! KC

Emily said...

I remember those days! It seemed like both my boys wouldn't nap or sleep! Now, I can't wake them up past noon! How time changes! I do miss those times though! Jason will be a senior this year! Jacob a junior. College is just ahead of us!
