I am definitely a very irregular blogger! The main reason, in my case, is always the same - if I don't have any cross stitch progress to show, then I don't post.
In these last months I haven't been in a frame of mind that makes me me want to stitch: my health problem that goes on playing with me in addiction to the side effects of medication; the financial situation that is not brilliant - I am just one of million civil servants, that is being affected by all the status quo in Portugal at the moment.
I guess all these made me a bit depressed and therefore not in the mood to stitch. On the other hand, I know this is stupid as stitching can be a great therapy!
It also made me close a lot in my shell and not wanting to socialize - another huge mistake, as many times blogging makes us feel good with the nice comments we get and the feeling we belong to a big family. More than ever I need your words of encouragement.
Next Wednesday I am going to an appointment with the state doctors who will determine if I have to go back to work - not always they follow our doctors advice, as their role is much more following the government policies than anything else. At the moment it frightens me the thought of having to face 5 classes full of teenagers than have no mercy on how a teacher may feel, when I an not well.
I apologise for all my ramblings, but sharing with you is making me feel better.
Here is a pic of the small progress in my Hannah's sampler. The colours shown are not the real ones, as I'm stitching in dark blues. Hopefully I will post in a short time with more progress and then I will show better pics.
Thank you for "listening" to my ramblings and I thank you in advance for your comments.
Have a great week.
