Good day, my friends! I hope you are doing well. My “downstairs” project(s)” hadn’t been happening in the last few weeks. Baby needed all my attention. But these past few days, she has let up on her demands as she has learned to entertain herself better… so, when the “cat” (Baby) plays, the mouse (Mom) plays too! :) This is picture from my last update:
You can see I made a bit of progress here. The stems for the yellow fruits were not the easiest to stitch. I took out stitches several times because I was “eyeballing” the chart wrong!
I believe fully in my downstairs projects. I read this quote on Jane Austen’s writing by her nephew, James Edward Austen-Leigh, that affirmed my belief – “She had no separate study to retire to, and most of the work must have been done in the general sitting-room, subject to all sorts of casual interruptions.” I guess the moral of the story is that working on projects piecemeal is perfect alright. After all, it is definitely Austen-tatious! :)
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely and productive day!
