Jesus Wept Update

Well I have really been neglecting this piece due to all the stress that I have been going through for a month.

I went back to look at the dates and I had not stitched on this piece for about a month and 6 days. I have been going through major non stitching withdraws for 10 days.

I am happy to report that my stress level went down enough to concentrate and relax so that I could stitch.

It does not look like much but I put in at least another 400 stitches in this one.

Here is your long awaited updated picture.

400 stitches is great Dawn. Just think of it that's 400 less then what you have to do :). I'm hoping the stress really starts to lessen more in your life as you do not need all of that stress. Take care of yourself.

Every stitch counts. Keep up the great work there! I am glad you are feeling less stressed. It's important for your health not to let stress take over. Just remember to breathe. Deep breathes from the belly, hold and release. You can do this with your eyes closed or open. I got this suggestion from my new chiropracter and a nurse to reduce my stress level. I hope it will help you too.

400 stitches is a lot, Dawn. It's going to be beautiful. And remember there's nothing God's going to give you that you can't handle with His help. Email me if you want.
