I hope you are all well? I can’t believe it has been quite so long since i was last on here!!
Work has been crazy busy this past year which has contributed in the main to my blogging hiatus. I have been trying to find my groove again with my blogging & have lots (hopefully) to share here.
In the past year, I have re-discovered my love of cross stitch. I started stitching in my mid-teens, stitched things & then gave up. I “found” cross sticthing again in my mid-twenties, stitched some things & then gave up. I then re-discovered this hobby again last year (mid-thirties) thanks massively in part to flosstube. What an amazing community the stitching community is!! In recent months, i have resurrected my Instagram account for sharing my stitching progress. I have been admiring all of the wonderful projects that al the very talented flosstubers have been sharing. I felt that I was encouraged to have a go at sharing my progress with the world. I filmed my very first flosstube video last week now & after a few days of going back & forth, I decided that I would upload. I am already absolutley amazed that anyone has watched it, let alone getting subscribers to my channel as a result of a (not great quality) video!
After filming my first video, I have learned quite a lot. There are definitely things I would do differently. That’s all part of the creative process, isn’t it? I have quite a hectic week coming up. Work is only for 4 days this week, but you know how it gets crazy as you are approaching time off? My brother is getting married this coming weekend, so myself & chap have a trip down to London for the wedding. We then both booked the following week off work, as we weren’t sure how long we were going to be staying in London after Saturday. Either way, we have some time off together & hoepfully we will have some nice weather to go with it!
I am hoping to make some time in that week off to film another video to be uploaded, hopefully building on my last video & the lessons I have learned from the whole experience. I’m hoping that sharing my progress, haul, finishes and sttiching adventures along the way will be as an enjoyable process as it is for me watching everyone else’s video updates.
I’ve rambled on for long enough, I think! Anyways, I am back. I appreciate that I have said that before here… and that I did come back (for a little bit) & then disappear again!! Let’s hope third time lucky, as they say!!
In case anyone is at all interested, you can find the link to my YouTube channel here, to view my first ever video – please be kind!
Thanks so much for stopping by
