Day 43: No stitches today.

Diary Entry: It was a semi productive day with regard catching up on admin, but been crabby for most of it. It was strongly implied that I was not sewing fast enough, which in turn caused me grief and upset. I ended up tired and in pain, which resulted in no sewing, instead it was a bath and then bed. Writing this retrospectively.

Day 44: Baby running stitch, three threads blue.



Diary Entry: Closed the hub down today, took a family a day as it was Kira’s 19th. Not that we did much, I sewed in the tent, but I was there if she needed me. It was nice not having deliveries, or collections. I managed to sew three scrub tops, all but the hems. I now have three sets (tops and bottoms) to hem tomorrow. Totally wiped out, my spoons are low. I am currently sat in the bath, one finger typing this diary on my tablet. This is helping me unwind and make sense of the day.

The daily chatter in the chat has died down, I think because we have found our rhythm and they may have taken chat off the groups chat as friendships form, can understand the latter. That and we are most likely working our fingers to the bone.

Decided to do a baby running stitch in a spiral because that is the way I feel I am going right now, around and around but not quite in circles as I have not met myself coming back yet.

Day 45: Closed Feather Stitch, perle thread pink.



Diary Entry: Hemmed all I needed to do today, then did test of a mask, first one was rubbish, next one was much better and I was happy with it. I had an issue with a group member, not happy with but will leave it at that.

Stitch of the day was closed feather stitch, reminds me of a trellis, I have wanted to climb the wall today so this is apt.

Tired and expecting a flare up.

Day 46: Satin Stitch Padded, perle thread purple. Back Stitch zigzagging the coral, six strand thread.
