Back in Stitches

Completed and custom framed cross stitch

My husband’s sister is way ahead of me with the kids than I am with the cross stitches for the kids. The third baby came a few weeks ago, the second one will be 2 at the end of April and I have not made much progress on this project.

Thanks to a co-worker I was introduced to the Meetup app. There is a group for side projects called The Side Projects Club. As long as it’s something you can do quietly they encourage you to bring your side project to work on. Most of the group bring laptops to work on coding, but a couple of us do things like cross stitch or knitting.

A huge thanks to that Meetup group. Without them I wouldn’t be working on this project at all, just getting mad at how much isn’t done. I was getting a bit burnt out on them, but it’s not as bad now. I am finally making some progress, and with getting back to this blog I thought I would use this as a secondary motivator to keeping pushing forward and making progress.

Update 5/11/17: Finished! Now it’s waiting to be framed, final photo coming in 2-ish weeks since frames are only ordered once per week on Wednesday.

Cross Stitch-An update

Cross stitch-not just an old lady craft

New photos

Ok, so there’s not that many and I can’t remember if I ever said I was taking photos at the CWS this year. I did, it was a work thing, but I learned a lot about photography. Below is a little sampling of what I got. The goal wasn’t to really take pictures of the game, it was to capture things with the fans. So it’s not really your typical baseball CWS pictures.

I finally got around to edit these and thought I would share a few.
