August WIPocalypse Check-In

WIPocalypse ButtonHello everyone!

This morning was a clear, beautiful day here in New England.  With the warm temperatures and no humidity, Erich and I decided to make it a family morning at the beach.  Max got a couple hours of playtime in before the afternoon crowds showed up, met a very large horseshoe crab wandering around the shallow water, and we spent a relaxing morning enjoying the outdoors.

Now that Max is down for a nap after we wore him out (parenting success!!), it’s time to get this post up.  🙂  I first made sure to sit down and actually MAKE MY OWN update post, since it’s been months.  So often I tell myself I’ll get to it in the afternoon and don’t – so I did that one first.  I have been stitching.  Honest!

This month’s blogging question is apt, though – because I’ve been in a bit of a stitching drought myself.  I find that if I push myself through it too hard, I get resentful.  The best way for me is to simply do what I can, try not to beat myself up for not getting more done, and know that eventually I’ll be able to be more productive.  I know it’s not meant to be a race, even if I have this need to push myself as if it were!

I hope that you have been productive this last month!  Looking forward to seeing all of your projects!

Happy stitching,

Mel.

Important SAL Announcements…

Question of the Month – How do you get yourself out of a stitching drought?

Next posting date: September 24, 2017

Topic for next time: Which floss (or color of floss) do you absolutely adore and want to stash constantly?

*~~~~*~~~~~~*

Please remember that this stitch-a-long is intended to be fun – so if you’re too busy to post, too busy/ill/etc. to stitch – no worries. Post when you can and share what you have going, even if you’ve only been able to toss a single stitch into it. If you miss a few months, not a problem – just jump back in when you’re back with us! It’s not a race or a competition – we’re all just here to cheer each other on with our progress.

Due to different browsing software, some bloggers have found it difficult to check-in with their posts. There are three different ways to check in:

    • Via Auto-link
    • Via comments (make sure you include your blog address!)
    • Via email – to measiwitch(at)gmail.com, only if the other two options are not working. Again- make sure you include your blog address! I’ll add it to the auto-link myself when I have a free moment.
