Day 15-16 - Finishing Projects & Cross-Stitching

WIP - Two Ladybugs
Originally uploaded by Pictures by Ann
Completed another cross-stitch design as part of Art Every Day Month. This design is of two ladybugs. I'm not sure if I'm going to incorporate it into the journal quilt for the month or use it on handmade gift bags.

One thing I do know is that it has been nice to work on projects that have been sitting in my "to do" bag for a long time. These little cross-stitching designs don't take an awful lot of time...it's just a matter of taking the time to do something creative.

I finished the ladybug cross-stitch while rocking in a rocking chair at the local school library while Olivia was in a Brownies meeting. It was so quiet and peaceful - silent, really - in that library. To have even an hour of complete silence was refreshing.

After a day of attending a caregiver support group meeting/workshop in the morning, homeschooling in the afternoon, and listening to the linoleum being installed in the mudroom (due to water/storm damage)...silence was something I truly needed.

Such a simple thing...but one that is so difficult to get some days.
