Getting back up on my feet again

Hey all, sorry for this not being a sewing related post, and sorry for not putting one up recently. For some reason, I hit a hard place and I'm slowly pulling myself back up again. I'm still sewing (getting ready to start my first pair of pants), and I've even picked up cross stitching - which is very tedious, I must say! I tend to get disheartened really easily, and when small, bad things happen, I get easily upset. This gets in the way of living sometimes when I can only think about my failures, and not the positives. Like not getting the Ben Franklin job, that tore at me and made me really upset. It's like I can't let go of small things, and I sit there and focus in on them - and they end up dictating my life. On the brighter side, I got a management position at a local Halloween store and I've been absolutely loving it. I'll be back on my feet again in no time - and my sewing adventures will be back!
Love you all

  1. congratulations on your new job! Cross stitching IS tedious, but it saved my sanity one awful summer of living at my in law's house. All the traditional needle arts seem to work that way, with the counting and repetitive movement. Much like saying a rosary, but at the end you might have an end product that delights you.

  2. That's the spirit! Keep focused on the positives and things that you can control or can have a bit of control over. Counted Cross Stitch is tedious but as the other commenter noted, you will have an end product if you stick with it. Small projects always helped me out and gave me an onus to continue forward. Good luck with your pants. I'm sure you will do just fine.

  3. Congrats on the new gig. X-stitching is tedious and habit forming. I "did" counted cross stitch. But my jewelry making took over that. So right now I focus on my sewing and jewelry. Don't let the downers get you too down. I feel the same way. Failure is not a option for me. Awesome news on the pants. I know you are going to look totally awesome in your pants. Remember there are a lot of great resources for knowledge. aka canei aka Juanita!!! Happy sewing!!!

  4. Hugs! I totally get what you're saying, as I am the same way when things go wrong. Like the song says, "shake it off!" Meditation might help if you can find a group in your area.

    Love seeing your makes here and hope you'll share your pants soon. Wait, that doesn't sound right... 😀
