But my little eureka moment dawned on me yesterday, while I was sat cross stitching, and this was it - isn't blogging a great way of tracking progress? And tracking progress of almost anything you care to consider from your crafting projects, book reading, gardening, changes round the house, to your growing children!
For me I guess I am mostly interested in tracking progress of my crafting projects as I have way too many unfinished projects as well as a stack full of projects and ideas yet to be started. But with pretty busy weekends of sports I don't get much time to craft (as I have said before).
Yesterday (Sunday) was an exception. I took my daughter to football and when I got home I sat down on the settee, took out my cross stitching and barely moved for the rest of the day (my husband cooks dinner on Sundays!). It was extremely self indulgent but I actually didn't have the energy to move, it was almost as though my body was saying "ok, that's it for now, let's sit and have a bit of a rest today". And the bonus of this was that firstly I read quite a bit of my book which I am enjoying and introduced here but also I managed to crack on with my cross stitching which I also blogged about here.
So here is the photo I blogged last week...
... quite a bit more red jumper has appeared. It isn't a large project, so I'm hoping to finish it within the next few weeks.
And I was inspired by a post I read recently, but I'm sorry I've forgotten whose it was, to pick a few spring flowers from the garden.
All quite small flowers individually but they give a big impact en masse.
I hope you had en enjoyable weekend - were you very lazy this weekend? It's fine for a change isn't it?
