Trying to get back to work

I've been having a tough time getting back to creating in the studio, I'm doing my usual stitching but I'm not feeling the usual enthusiasm. Maybe I need a longer break, or I just haven't recovered from the break I took. At any rate this is what I've done this week.

2020 Weekly leaf, the Burr Oak Series week 7 & 8 - all caught up.

week 7, Solarfast on cotton

Week 8, Solarfast on vintage silk taffeta

SAQA's next 100 days, days 14-20

I've finished the stitching on the last 20" sq. napkin and I must say it's not my favorite.

But it is done.

Normally I would have another daily stitching project ready to start, but I don't and right now I don't even have any half formed ideas floating around, so I'll be taking a break for at least a few days.

I'll be linking up with "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching"

I'm back home after spending two wonderful weeks in Thailand. A few of the highlights were an indigo dying class, a Thai cooking class(yum), a day playing with elephants,

lots of temples,

lots of Buddha's,

fresh food markets,
beach time on an island,
exotic fruits,

time with my daughter and granddaughter, and much more. It's taken me a few days to recover from jet lag after our 30 hour journey home which included a quick tour of Seoul, Korea during a 12 hour layover. 

Stitching was minimal on this trip.

Week #5  and #6 , Burr Oak leaf series

SAQA Next 100 Days, days 1-13

I'm slowly getting back into the studio and my normal life, but I'm not in a rush to do so. I think I may have needed this break.
