Stitch Maynia 2020: Days 6-10

Hey stitchers!

Well, here we are! I'm half-way through my 20 starts in 2020 goal and I feel good! Stitching every day has been good for my soul, and I've really missed it. Due to my work schedule and hectic home-life, it's not uncommon for me to go straight to bed instead of picking up my needle and thread at night. Stitch Maynia this year has helped me stay calm, focused, and start some projects that were begging for attention!

It's been a productive few days - let's get into what I've been stitching!

Stitch Maynia 2020: May 1 - May 5th

Hey stitchers!

I cannot believe it's already May. 2020 has proven to be... something! I'm trying to keep a positive outlook during these times of uncertainty. Because I was able to transition to a virtual environment for work, and because my kiddos are home with me participating in distance learning, I thought I'd give Maynia a whirl this year!

My goal is 20 starts in the first 20 days of May.

If you're stumbling your way to this blog, I hope you'll give my YouTube channel a try!
