Rapunzel, Rapunzel...

...Let down your golden hair!

As of the December 31st, I left my full time job and have been working these past couple of weeks on adjusting to life as a stay at home mom. It's been an adjustment to be sure, but I think we're starting to settle in on a routine, which is a wonderful thing! It's a huge blessing and I'm so very happy to be on this adventure with my kids!

Now that I'm a bit more settled and not as insanely frantic in the evenings, I've decided to finally pick up stitching again. I've missed it, very much so, but life for quite awhile just wasn't letting me get to it. I've decided I'm not going to have a formal rotation process for now, I'm just going to work on what I want to work on, however long I may want to work on it, and rotate when something else strikes my fancy. I am making a hard and fast rule, though, that there will be no new starts until I finish one of my many WIP's. Doesn't mean I won't keep collecting stash though! (My fabric collection is MASSIVE by now!)

In that mindset, I picked up Rapunzel by Joan Elliott this weekend to start working on her again. It's been almost a year since I had last worked on her, and this is where she was when I last touched her:

I worked on her Friday and got to this point:

And then yesterday I got to here:

She's being stitched on 28 ct. Jobelan in Isolde from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie and I'm absolutely loving stitching on her! More to come as I make more progress!

Happy stitching!

Until next time!
