Stitching is Therapy

Remember my son's little ammonite he stitched? I found a tiny frame for it. It now lives up on a shelf next to his microscope in his room. I also found a frame for my 'mad scientist' and he is living on a self in my bedroom for right now.

I'd like to find some more cute scientist / lab cross stitch patterns and have a bunch hanging of a wall together. But no luck finding anymore so far.

I finished up the stitching on my second Christmas ornament, but am still too scared to make it into an actual ornament. I need some kind of tutorial showing me exactly how to do it so I don't mess it up. If anyone knows of one please let me know.

My new start is another Christmas pattern called "Pirates Love Christmas" by Sue Hillis Designs. Our neighbors who do sooo much for us, love pirates. Their whole house is decorated in them, so I am making this for them for Christmas 2012. :o)

In school news.... here are my books. I am taking three classes this semester. And it is a bit overwhelming. I've been having some health issues too, so my stress level is through the roof. I believe I will be withdrawing from my Clinical Chemistry class and taking it another semester. In just that class alone I have 3 chapters to read , a test on laboratory reference values and tubes next week and a three page paper with presentation due next Tuesday..... and that is just in one class.

Stitching is my relaxation and thearpy so hopefully I can find more time to stitch. ~amy

i know it's stressful but you can do it! i know you can, because you've already done so much in life. what's a little chemistry class compared to all that?

talk to monica about the ornament; i know she knows how to do this!

Here is a link for your finish, Amy-
I know of another site and will look for it & let you know. Hope you are ok. I don't want to discourage you but three classes sounds like alot with a family & health issues. Take it easy on yourself. Stitching is indeed good therapy. :-)

Those books look so scary to my English, Art, and Theatre oriented mind! I am so impressed, and I love your stitchings!

Lovely stitching! Chemistry is the only subject in school that I failed--I admire anybody that can make sense of it! Good for you--best of luck.
